    Ryan Braun Calls out teammates...

    Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs - Recap - July 05, 2009 - ESPN
    Is it funny to anyone else that the freakin' Brewers are having a mini-meltdown?
    "Their starting pitching is a lot better than ours," Braun said after the Brewers were beaten 8-2 Sunday. "They threw the ball a lot better than our starters did. They certainly swung the bats better than we did. Clearly they were the better team. It's nice to get the one win but they clearly outplayed us and outperformed us all series."
    "No matter who is in there, we have to find a way to throw the ball better for us to have success," said Braun. "I think when you're constantly behind in games, it's not easy and it's not fun. Their starting pitcher was clearly better than ours this series."
    Braun is hoping Brewers general manager Doug Melvin makes a move soon to improve the Brewers."I wish I got to make decisions like that. But I know he's trying to make our ballclub better," Braun said. "I know he understands the significance of making a move and making it soon."

    I find it funny they're still ahead of the Cubs in the standings.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Yes... That is true. Last year a Brewers sweep got us going, maybe this year 3 out of 4 will do it.

    Lets hope the Cards get more 10-1 victories and then the Cubs and Brewers can do whatever they want because it won't matter. The Cardinals have what it takes to actually win the NL Pennant.

    Uh...not really. They have Pujols. I love Mark DeRosa, but if you're depending on him to be the guy who bats behind Pujols, you aren't going far. The NL Central as a whole has been down all year. It will be amazing if any team that wins the division contends with the Dodgers for the pennant.

    Pretty much anyone could win 10-1 against Bronson Arroyo. He is a joke.

    Re: Ryan Braun Calls out teammates...

    I will be SHOCKED if the Cards do not win the division...

    As a lifelong baseball fan I have learned that in ANY close race it takes the best manager. And by far TL is that guy... Sweet Lou is a good manager, just not in the same boat as Tony. If you dont believe me, check the rings...

    BTW- I am a HUGE Braves fan Cubbies...

    Re: Ryan Braun Calls out teammates...

    IMO, cubs still have the best team in the division and will have a pretty good chance of winning it if A-Ram gets back to 100% and no major injuries have. Cards have Pujols and thats it.. pitching is lack-luster after carpenter.. brewers are an implosion waiting to happen. those bats go dead for a few games, and you can lose 6-8 in a row really fast.


    ALL IN

    If any team other then the cardinals comes out of the central they will be swept in the first round. Cubs will get dominated (see the last 2 years) in a five game series.

    And we get our best hitter and bullpen guy back today. We should be in first shortly after the all-star break.

    Only because they have played three more games than the Cubs. The Cubs, Cardinals and Brewers all have the same amount of loses.
