It's August 11th, the Brewers, yes, the Milwaukee Brewers, are two games out of first place!!!

1) I believe in Major League, the Cleveland Indians are 61-61 after 122 games, and the general consensus is "these guys aren't so bad," even if the grounds crew thinks otherwise.

2) Villar 3-5 last night with a dinger!

3) They didn't quit.

4) I'd rather swoon in August than September.

5) I still like this roster moving forward. Between the experience some of these guys are getting and the talent in AAA on the way for next year, I'm glad to be a Brewer fan. I think we've got three or four fun years of baseball ahead.

On the bright side, there appear to be a lot of "toolsy" center fielders available when we make the 12th pick in next year's draft.

Offense has scored 10 runs and 6 runs in their last two games. 2 games back on the Cubs and Cardinals.

Walker is a great addition for this squad. A better Kinsler, much needed. Villar snapping out of a lull? Don't care. Walker fits better.

We are tied with the Cubs in wins so we are basically in 1st. The smart thing is to just assume the other team is going to win or lose all of the extra games and I choose to randomly decide the Cubs are going to lose all 4. So glad I was tipped off using bizarro logic to make things look the way i want them to. Wish I had figured this out years ago.

In other news, back in 3rd place!

I really like the situation going forward. We make the playoffs this year, fine.

But think of it like this: To fill holes in the rotation behind Anderson/Nelson as out aces, there are internal candidates. Suter, Woodruff, Davies, Angel Ventura, Jungmann for the spots behind them... we're not blowing $10-15 million per year on a Lohse, Suppan, Garza, or Wolf.

That is huge in and of itself.

There's talent coming up as well, and some are real sleepers. Troy Stokes, I think, will force his way to Milwaukee in 2018. He's for real.

Back to 2 games over, the offense seems to be back on solid ground, and the bullpen did a nice job the last 2 days. Only 2 games out on aug 13th.

We've had the worst record of any team since the All-star game and are still right there.

Exactly igor. It's easy to be positive when we're winning consistently and watching our lead on the division swell. But the fact that we've struggled mightily and are still right in the thick of the division race means a lot too. When we get hot again we may just run away with this thing!

Every team ahead of us in the playoff race lost last night so we gained 1 game on everyone.

Think Stearns is still working out a possible trade?

All that would be left would be any other BP help and possibly a lefty CF? 2 weeks or less away from a redhot Phillips being up in CF and they've already made a few BP moves so I'd think not, but I'm sure he's doing his due diligence. I'd think he's not in pursuit of SP with Anderson back now.

I agree with Anderson coming back its like getting a fresh arm.
I am not sure they will call up Brett with The Sky Soxs in the playoffs
could be a conflict?

I guess I don't know much of how relationships work between AAA orgs and MLB. But I would think if in contention that MKE wouldn't care at all about the AAA playoffs and Phillips would clearly prefer to be in the bigs. They essentially helped them out a ton already by leaving Brinson/Phillips down there so much.

I almost think the last week or so of the season they should intentionally play Phillips in the PH role to try and get him used to that for September. It's too bad about Brinson, I was hoping at minimum we could utilize his speed in a PR role and for defense late in games. With a Phillips/Brinson/Broxton OF late in games, that's as good as we can possibly defend out there. Including AAA callups, we can put premier defenders at almost every spot on the field in September if we choose.

I saw the cubs and cardinals lose, but didn't know until Enders post that both the rockies and diamondbacks lost also. Keep the streak rolling!

Did Colorado Springs make the playoffs in 2016? 2015? I don't know, and I don't care, as do 99.9% of most other Brewer fans. Minor league teams exist for one reason, and one reason alone - to funnel out players talented enough to help the big club. If Phillips can help the big club starting Sept. 1, he should be up. If the Sy Sox need a CF, Michael Reed should be ready to roll in.
