Things have not been going very well for the Milwaukee Brewers as of late. The crew lost a heartbreaker last Sunday to the Phillies after taking a 6-1 lead to the ninth. After that meltdown, The Brew headed to Colorado and got pounded; they were swept.
Upon heading to sweltering Houston, The Brewers get the news that they will be without Tony Graffanino for the duration of the year due to a torn ACL. And oh yea, the Cubs won last night and are 1/2 game back and the Cardinals are back in the race at 5 1/2 games back.
The Astros just swept the Cubs out of town and are chomping at the bit to get a hold of the first place Brewers. It's put up or shut up time for The Crew, folks. What is this team made of?
I can't think of a more important series than this one against Houston. In fact, every series from here on out is the most important series the Brewers will play.
Time to get it done, Milwaukee. Cheer on your Brewers, fans. Let them here you from the couch this weekend. Get out to Miller Park next week and support The Brew for the stretch drive. They're going to need all the help they can get.
What say you?
