Not so good

AKA stumbling into the break. McClung actually pitched pretty well yesterday on bad pitch/inning he did not make the decision on who leaves the rotation any easier.

Gagne finally had a bad inning since coming back and Mota was Mota

All of this sucks yes but there was some good news yesterday the Cubs almost blew a 7 run lead and the Cards gakked up a game in the 9th to lose in extra innings.

This means a win today coupled with a Cards loss and you go into the break with the WC lead.

There is so much baseball left to be played yet 70 games or so that I am not going to lose my mind over a two game rough patch.

CC goes today so we will see how he does in the role that Ben Sheets usually has "Stopper"

It would be nice to go into the break with a win and not a 3 game losing streak.

It is pretty simple they have to win to avoid a nasty taste in their mouths over the break. As much as I hate the Cubs you have to give them credit they beat up on the bad teams when they get them at home. I think the Brewers are a team that really needs the break, I am really glad they got the extra day off to be honest. They can lie on the couch then fly out to San Francisco get some Chowder or really good Chinese food(Dim Sum style) and get rolling again.

Right now my only care is getting a nice 4 to 5 game cushion on the next team in the WC then worry about the next step.

I cannot wait to see how CC pitches when he is a little more comfortable and relaxed after being here almost a week.

Lets get a win before the break.
