Loyal Readers and Brewers Fans!
Let’s take a look at the standings:
Your pal Yogi’s pre-season pick was that the Brewers would finish 3rd in the NL Central.
Right now I don’t see how that will change all that much.
The Cubs are certainly the team to beat and I’m not sure the Cardinals are for real, but they know how to win and their pitching isn’t yet at full strength, so I still have them ahead of the Brewers.
The Brewers have yet to show that they can consistently hit for power or average. Their defense is better than last year, but they still seem to make too many errors in judgment, whether at the plate, in the field, or on the bases.
Good starting pitching.
Relief that sparkles at times.
Closers that cannot be consistently relied upon.
Did you see today’s game?
You know what I’m talking about.
All in all it’s a fair start.
More needs to be done.
