Brewers September Streak

 

 

Brewers hats & merchandise It’s ok. We’ll have you back. Climb aboard. Yes, you, the bandwagon fan. You know who you are. The ones who LOVE Opening Day but couldn’t care less about game number 2. The ones who don’t come inside to the actual game until the 3rd inning when the parking lot police tell you to pack it up. The ones who spend more time checking their emails and texting instead of watching the game. By the way, that will get you hit with a foul ball someday. It doesn’t matter how quickly you deserted the team when the bullpen began to meltdown. It’s time to get back on board with the red-hot Milwaukee Brewers.

For those bandwagoners who have been more focused on the release of the iPhone 5, here’s what you’ve missed in the last few months of the season. The Brewer’s bullpen put the team in a huge hole with 26 blown saves. Blown saves…ask Siri what that is. The team traded Zack Greinke to the Los Angeles Angels for shortstop Jean Segura and two minor league pitchers. Randy Wolf was released by the team on his 36th birthday. Jonathon Lucroy returned after being sidelined with a broken hand. Corey Hart is the now (and hopefully forever) the first baseman. Nyger Morgan barely sees the field these days. Aramis Ramirez is having an unbelievable season and Ryan Braun is still an MVP. The team also called up a bunch of minor leaguers whose numbers you’ll now have to learn (or not). That much maligned bullpen hasn’t been too bad recently either.

Regardless of your level of fandom, the Brewers have climbed back into the Wild Card race. They now trail the St Louis Cardinals by three games with 19 games left to play. The playoffs are still a long shot, but how can you bet against a team that has won 18 of its last 23 games and 9 straight at home? Fresh off a sweep of the National League East leading Atlanta Braves, the Brewers welcome the New York Mets to Miller Park. Those Amazing Mets have lost their last 6 games and appear to already be making tee times for October. So grab your iPhone and your t-shirt with the old “Ball and Glove” logo (yes, that’s logo also contains an ‘M’ and a ‘B’…pretty creative, huh?). It’s time to get back on the bandwagon. The Brewers have done their part, now fans must return the favor.
