looking up. (dwm)
Was the first-half plus of the season - first place in the National League Central, winning more than losing - a fluke?
Are other replacements impersonating Braun, Thames, and Shaw of earlier this year?
As many coaches and managers say, "you are what your record says you are."
|The Brewer scoring threat dies|
on base v Twins 8-10. (dwm)
Mission accomplished and then some. But the record says something else now.
Just a month ago, I left Miller Park after a convincing win over Philadelphia in the team's first game after the All-Star break.
Then somebody stole the Brewer's bats. Runs became scarce. Reliable gloves came up short.

home run. (dwm)
In any case, Milwaukee has just 19 home games left (including this afternoon - 8/13/2017), 24 on the road, so the time to pull out of the skid is now.

the 4th race we've

8/ 10/17 (dwm)
So far, most of the ride was bump-free. It's been bumpy lately and I'm curious to watch and cheer as this team tries to steer out of it.
I hope things turn-around and this team finds its way into the play-offs, but I'll count the season a success with a record within 5 wins of 82 by the time it's over.
Fun is on the field. Our next step, as fans and the team, is to add some more W's. Go Brewers!
