Nice work from Junior. Who's up next? Do we see Williams for the 6th and 7th?

It took Junior 41 pitches to get through 2 innings but he did it, and didn't give up any runs. I guess that's not the best case scenario, as he won't be available for a few days......

Hey wait, that IS the best case scenario.

So I log on to check the game, and see that Hiura is absolutely killing it. Makes sense, seeing as I decided this morning to bench him in my fantasy league until he got out of his slump. Guess this is why I didn’t go into finance...

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals and Cubs, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

Pittsburgh will be 4-21 since the All-Star break after this game finishes.

In a way it's too bad that there is all the money involved and the gate receipts and all that stuff....because if there wasn't then we could all just tell the Pirates to go home now and try again in 2020.

Boy, Pittsburgh is bad but this is what this team needed.

This is how I expected this line-up to hit the entire season. I know there are off days, but I fully expected this offense to be lethal.

Hurdle has to be at the end with the Pirates. They have talent and they stink. They fight alot but don't play hard. Time for him to move on.

And, as I had suspected and said awhile ago when everyone was all impressed by the Cardinals...once they played real teams after the ASB they would come back to reality...and they have.

They were a few games over .500 before that, hard to believe. Meanwhile it's possible the Brewers end the night tied for WC2. Just about as hard to believe. This season feels like such a struggle. Almost every win seems so hard fought, or a constant playing from behind.

I might be in the minority, but I still like the Brewers to win the division. Just not sold on the Cubs or the Cardinals.

There are 45 games left and they are what, .5 behind the Brewers or something? They're mediocre like the other six teams bunched in the middle. Any of them could be wild cards. Only the Cubs seem to be separating into a lock position.

Really doesn't look like Cain should be running. Surprised they haven't had one of the pitchers run for him.

Think the Cubs have the best team but that doesn't always do it. Also think we have the worst pitching of the three, but who knows, maybe the snoozer trades will end being what they needed. Just hope it's fun to the last week.

With Hiura's next home run, he won't have to run.

Brewers are gonna make the playoffs with 84 wins and sweep the Dodgers in the first round.


Or win the central and sweep the Braves, then the dodgers.

Keep some perspective though, we are playing the Pirates. You saw how we looked against the Cubs, night and day.

Not saying it isn't possible, but odds are not in our favor imo.

Will never know if that is an act, or is for real...

Seeing Williams is exciting. If he can help us this year, that will be a little icing...
