BrewCap: Brewers Get Embarrassed By Cubs in Dumpster Fire Performance
Milwaukee Brewers cannot get over the hump. They almost refuse to. They’re like a kid who doesn’t eat his vegetables. No matter what you do, they will not eat them. It truly sucks to witness this as a fan. How many times do we go through this with the Brewers? They’re awesome for two or three games at most then they fall apart for the next two or three games? After Josh Hader completely blew up on Saturday night, Brewers followed up with a lazy, gutless performance where they tossed the ball around the infield and ended up getting no-hit by Alec fucking Mills. A complete no-namer and a guy who had been struggling the last month or so. A truly pathetic effort by the Brewers.
Now, Milwaukee has five games against the St. Louis Cardinals this week. It basically will decide their season. If they win four out of five, Milwaukee is in a pretty good position to keep us believing for the rest of September. But if they lose that number or go something like 3-2 or 2-3, they settle into their familiar pattern of being a mediocre baseball team.
I’m typically not a pessimist with my sports teams, but this game left me very discouraged. They had a bad loss on Saturday, no question about it. But instead of moving on, they thought about it the whole game. They played like a bunch of sorry sacks instead of moving past the bad loss and having a short memory. It is hard for me to see a team with limited mental stability being a playoff team even in a year where eight get in. Almost want the Cardinals to end it this week, so, I could put baseball to bed.
We’ll see what happens with the two doubleheaders. The first time Milwaukee did the doubleheader dance they were swept with two embarrassing losses. Let’s hope it’s not the same this time around.
