It’s been such a fun Brewers season that I hope it doesn’t end Friday at Miller Park. I hope the Brewers can win tonight, in Arizona, and then move on to the NL Championship series.
But it’s their inconsistent play that troubles me the most. Anybody remember the last few weeks of September?
Last night was a stumble – from which I hope they pick themselves up and put tonight’s game away, early. But more often than not, when they’ve stumbled this season, they’ve fallen flat on their faces for a week or more.
In September they beat the snot out of the Cards in a critical series, and then went to Chicago a few days later and let the Cubs look more like world-beaters than the 3rd-rate team they are.
And there was the curse of SI, which led to that long slump.
Like all good things, I don’t want it to come to an end. I want them hosting Game One of the World Series on the 19th, and going on to win it.
Then it can end.
