This is the team's 50th season, going back to the Pilots. We have appeared in a grand total of one World Series, and that was 37 years ago. So, while the 7th most wins in the last 2.5 years of baseball might make for fun talk at the sports bar, it means squat in the overall context of baseball success.


Our results over the last 2.5 years are infinitely more relevant to our prospects of future success than anything that happened in the 47.5 years which came before.

How about we ask the real question that needs asked?

Not to Counsell. Not to Stearns.

To The owner of the brewers:

Why do we not invest profits to payroll like YOU SAID YOU WOULD back when the brewers were in rebuild for a couple years.

Why are we not asking this question? Why?

Instead we get upset at Stearns or CC, when we should be furious with our owner. But he gets a pass, why?

He sits there in his seat smiling all the way to the bank, year after year, no accountability whatsoever, with impunity to do whatever he wants with his cash cow. You bet I’m angry.

It’s our fault, we come out in droves, over performing our market size by staggering amounts year after year, while we have a competitive team but not world championship caliber, but how could it be with a payroll 80-110 million less than whoever.

Within the next 6 years we the fans will make the brewers worth enough to make Attanasio a billionaire just with the brewers alone. But he gets the adoration of the fans > why?

He should be booed out of the stadium, handcuffing Stearns year after year, telling him he needs to compete with the big boys but do it on the cheap.

Why does he get the pass?


Just stop

Best team in brewer history. A lot of memorable players. Plus one of the greatest logos in baseball history. Why we ever changed, I will never know


Two Brewers teams in the last decade have better regular season records than the '82 team and the '82 team had the advantage of only having to win one series to make it to the World Series. The logo, I've made my opinion quite clear on that. If that's part of what you're hanging your hat on, more power to you but it's kind of sad.


Wow. You aren’t much fun. It’s really not that big of a deal

It was also a lot harder to make the playoffs back then than it was now. No wild card and 7 team divisions.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I just don’t see the point of getting all pissed off about this. There is so many other things to worry about

I do agree. Last year was a heck of year. A successful year. I don’t know why everyone is downplaying it. And this year still has to play out. It’s not over yet

But I do get the other side. Just because you make the playoffs one year doesn’t mean everything is great. Hopefully there is some consistency and they go back again is the short future

Jeffress has been a hot mess since right before the playoffs started last year.


JJ pitched 3 days in a row last night. That pitch to Saurez wasn't the first one of his to go right over the plate. IMO having JJ go in there again last night was one of CC's worst managerial decisions of his in a while. There had to be another option (or else just walk Saurez instead).

I, too, am growing beyond frustrated with the way our media interacts with Counsell. And I voiced my displeasure to Tom. A journalist's job is to ask the tough questions, not to toe a company line. Right now, all we have are a bunch of lackeys. If the Brewers ever want to truly become winners, there needs to be some accountability.

This would never fly in New York.

The past couple of games before last night the pen was performing well. Was another option other than JJ in the 9th? It appeared Freddy and Hader were not but who else could CC had used there?

Yes, he responded with a picture of himself wearing red & white checkered overalls, just like Big Boy wears.
