Entitled "Brewers Keep Cubs and Cards Alive", the piece scolds Milwaukee for not burying (his word, not mine) the Cubs and the Cardinals in the division race yet. On June 8. Among the atrocities cited by this fool (I'm told he's called "Gordo"):
- The Brewers blew a late lead at Atlanta Sunday and lost 8-7, missing an opportunity to sweep the punchless Braves.
- Milwaukee opened the season by losing eight of their first 11 games.
- In late May, they lost five of six games during a brief stretch.
- More recently they lost three times in a four-game series at Florida.
Gordo finished his little rant with the following:
Had they avoided such downturns – the bane of every manager’s existence — the Brewers would own this division right now.
Holy hell. Alert! Captain Obvious is speaking! No shit? So if the Brewers would have won every game since the beginning of the season, those other teams in the NL Central would really be in trouble? Really?
In an upset, there was no mention of the shirt un-tucking. But I'm sure he thinks that if the Brewers weren't so darn arrogant they'd be leading the division by 30 games right now.
It's official - St. Louis has the worst sports writers in the world. Perhaps the universe.
