Why not bring Hader in even with the big lead?

He hasn’t pitched that many innings and, if they need him on Friday, he may be better off not having 3 full days off. If they don’t need him Friday he will just be that much rustier when they do need him.

I knew it had been this bad, but it’s still incredible...

Robert Murray: The Brewers have scored as many runs in the first innings of their doubleheader today (5) as they had in the first 46 games of the season combined.

It's great to win the series but 4 wins would have done wonders there. Nice to see Braun still doing Braun things.

Brewers are probably going to have to go at least 7-4 the rest of the way to qualify for the playoffs. Fortunately 8 of their final 11 are against the two teams they need to get past for a playoff spot. A sweep, or at least taking 2 of 3 against the Royals, is pretty much a must, though.

Winning 3 in this series was pretty much the requirement to keep the Brewers from falling into a really tough position.

They could really use a sweep over the Royals (have they swept anybody this season?) to set up the final week against the Reds and Cardinals. I think they have to get to 30-30 to have a good chance to get a playoff spot. Less than that is going to require help from some teams that may not be motivated.

I agree that 7-4 would be necessary to feel good about their chances (a .500 final record), but 6-5 may give them a chance (would be a 29-31 final record).

In addition to the Brewers taking care of business it’s time to start rooting against teams like the Phillies, Giants and to a lesser extent the Rockies.

So, can we put to bed the idea that the Brewers' pitchers don't like throwing to Nottingham?

Those 5 losses to the Pirates really looming large right now......especially after the Reds just swept them.

Braunie with some comments on Shildt that I think we would all agree with

That was the killer. Flip 2 of those games and this a completely different season.

Congratulations to Braun on homerun number 350! Hoping to see him in the lineup everyday the rest of the way.
