In case you didn't know, the Milwaukee Brewers just made the playoffs for the first time in 25 years. It took a win on the last game of the season, coupled with a loss by the Mets. What makes this even more spectacular is the fact that the Brewers were up 5 and a half games a short while ago, only to blow the lead in near-record time. We fired our manager with 12 games left in the season, a questionable move, but in the end it worked. Ryan Braun hit a home run in the 8th inning today to put the Brew Crew ahead for good, and this was on the heels of his walk-off grand slam two nights ago. The night before, Prince Fielder hit a 2-run walk-off home run, and I think he had the game-winning hit the night before that. CC Sabathia went the distance, pitching on 3 days rest, and for the third time in 9 days. Phillies, here we come!
In short, this has been an incredible roller-coaster-ride of a season, especially coming down the home stretch. I don't know if there are any Metropolitans fans here besides Scott, but I feel your pain. For too long I've watched my team toil all summer in vain when October comes around. Now it's our turn!
