Brewers/Cubs playing the role well of the Reds teams from the Lost Decade. That was the only late season excitement back in those days - winning 3 of 4 from the contending Cubs in the late season.
Reds now 2-5 in the last seven games vs. the Brew-ha-has
That's a wrap. They teased us with St Louis and LA and fall on their face against the Cubs and Brewers. Have mercy.
Cards/Ms going to extras. Matt Adams didn't homer bottom 9 for a change, making the final out.
My weekend wish? An analogy.
That as the Brewers are to the Reds, the Ms will be to the RedBirds.
Reds & Nats, 2013 LCS. Take2 (9/13) Reds but no Nats
I agree as he never lays out a la Andruw Jones, Marlon Byrd or really many/most CF/OF....he does slide a lot to make catches but some require the little extra the full dive gives you.
Jay Bruce and Chris Heisey make every one of those catches.
Stubbs always killed me making zero diving catches and maybe 3-5 sliding catches in close to 500 games.
Wasn't their night and Brewers deserved the win more.
Reds outscored 23-18 over last 7 games. Average score is 3.3 - 2.6 in favor of the opposition.

39,000 to watch a team playing out the string. Milwaukee's a good baseball town.
Before 2001 the Brewers drew over 2M once in their history and Milwaukee was largely a baseball wasteland. Even 2002/2003 they were well below 2M in the new park.
Milwaukee is a good candidate to see the attendance plummet over the next couple of seasons. They are riding the season ticket wave from some good years pre-2012 and living the Ryan Braun lie.
Anyone notice the Mariners couldn't draw 10,000 the other night?

Mariners now in full meltdown mode in the bottom of the 10th. back to back walks to load them up with 2-out.
And the Cards win on a WP that goes 20 feet from the catcher. LOL
make it a passed ball
The Mariners announcers would bring Redszone in full meltdown mode. Just skewering the M's in the final half inning.
