The Grand National Championships

July 28, 2009

There are two ways this can go for the Brewers.

We all know that your Milwaukee Brewers got launched by the Nationals. More specifically Jeff “Toast” Suppan got launched by the Nationals. And while my personal opinion of Jeff Suppan is something probably unmentionable to polite company, we need to calm down.

This was going to be a tricky needle to thread, if you look at the story of the preseason. Nobody expected the Brewers to be a divisional winner. Few expected them to contend for the wild card. I was banking on the Brewers finding their way based on the inevitable return of Chris Capuano. That didn’t happen, and with the injuries for Dave Bush and Seth McClung, the rotation swung strongly into the smoke and mirrors scenario.

And they aren’t exactly out of the division race. They’re in 4th and under .500 for the first time in a long time, but they are still just four games out. Like I said before? The Nationals are the perfect bellwether for a slumping team.

If they cannot get healthy? It’s time to sell.

So far? Off to a bad start.
