My post season blogging was pretty much a disaster not that things would be too pleasant to write about. The Brewers collapsed again and now, with just three games left to play, the Brewers find themselves still two games back with three to play despite a three game skid by the Cubs. Even worse, they have the Wild Card leading Padres left for three more games to round out the season while the Cubs play the mediocre Reds (without Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey, Jr.) for three games.
Prince Fielder belted his 50th homerun the other day and he’s definitely in the mix of MVP candidates. He’d probably get a more solid nod if he blew up this weekend and led the Brewers to the division title. When you look at the team’s stats. Fielder leads in just about everything that matters and it’s hard to believe this kid just turned 23 during the season.
Ben Sheets is done for the season so that’s a tough blow to take. Even if the Brewers do somehow squeak into the playoffs, it’ll be without their ace. And to stay on pitching for a moment, Chris Capuano’s season has just been downright bizarre. He starts out 5-0 in early May and now hes 5-12 and his ERA is a touch over 5.00. Sight, a few of those losses would have made a huge difference in the Brewers chances this season.
Still though, it’s the final weekend of the season and the Brewers are still in it. At this point they need to just win out and not worry about the Cubs so at least Brewers fans have something to cheer about in these final days of the season.
