As I sit in beautiful Oneonta, New York, this morning, not too far from Ithaca College, I can't help but wonder if this will be the make or break road trip of the season for the Brewers. A 10-gamer to 3 cities and a ton of travel. I really don't see the logic of the Atlanta to Minneapolis to Phoenix road trip. I am sure the Cubs don't have anything crazy like this. Anyway, the Brewers face three legit teams on this road trip. The always tough Braves, the surging Twins and the first-place Diamondbacks.
The Brewers are 21-10, the best record in the bigs, since the debacle in Boston (or was it Austin). Coming of another successful homestand, the Brewers need to carry that momentum on the road for a change. I would be happy with a 5-5 trip, but I think they are going to go 6-4. Win 1 in Atlanta, 2 in Minnesota and 3 in Arizona. Unleash the fury! What's your take on the road trip?
