The Implications Of A Brewers Win
This postseason has been more than exciting. Dare I say historic? Wildcard Wednesday quickly crept through the whispers of baseball lovers and into the vernacular of game. That was one of the best night’s of baseball I’ve ever experienced, capped by the collapse the Boston Red Sox. That wonderful, wonderful collapse. I don’t remember cheering as loud as I did with that Orioles walk off. I never have. I have never cheered that loud for a team across the country. Imagine if that was Baltimore’s clinching game! The possibilities.
Yesterday, the Detroit Tigers clinched entrance to the American League Championship Series. Great news for Doug Fister fans. Great news for people who just love to watch the Evil Empire crumble. It’s was a great moment for the Tigers ballclub, and now the Yankees will spend more money to correct the “problem” of not winning a World Series. Great. Just, great.
Today is the biggest day of the year for two National League teams. Two team’s seasons end today. If Philadelphia tops St. Louis, it’ll be the fourth straight year of the Phillies making it to or past the Championship Series. The Phillies have a team you dream about drafting in your MLB fantasy leagues, except that Ruben Amaro actually did it. When filling your fantasy starting rotation draft-board, you would dream about Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt playing together, but in actuality you can really only draft one of those players, plus Derek Lowe and Phil Coke. The Phillies really have four aces. In real life. Good golly.
If the Milwaukee Brewers win against the Diamondbacks tonight, it will be the furthest they’ve been since their 1982 World Series loss.
The 2011 Brewers are essentially a Jack Zduriencik team.
