Astros in Town

After a just your basic .500 west coast road trip, the Brewers are back in town tonight for a week against the surging Astros and lowly Pittsburgh Pirates. The Astros are up first.

The bad for the Crew? The Astros are on fire. They have basically been around 7 or 8 games under .500 all year and have picked up the pace the last month. They are now 2 games over and sit 7.5 behind the Crew in the Wild Card. Good for them.

The good for the Crew? We're trotting out CC, Sheets, & Parra for the 3 game set. You gotta like that right? You gotta feel good about your chances in a series with those 3 guys right?

But if you're Cecil Cooper...what do you do??? You predict a sweep.

In response to a reporter saying that the Astros could sweep the Brewers, Cooper said, "I'm predicting that, I'm going out on a limb. You heard it here first."

Interesting take Cecil...I thought I was the only guy that can make asinine predictions about sweeping teams.

Well twisted my arm. I'm also going to go out on a limb. I'm going to predict that the Brewers DO NOT get swept by your overachieving team, in a series where we miss your ace, you don't have Carlos Lee, and we have our top 3 pitchers going.

Yeah...I'll throw the Woz Guarantee up for that.

Is Cecil drunk? And if so, on what, and will he share?

This quote better be hangin up in the Brewers clubhouse.

Brewers win tonight 14-2. Braun will hit 2 homers one of which will be a grand slam.

To be fair, the Crew has had a rough time with the Asstros this year...
