Powell: Best Road Trip Ever

According to Jim Powell, the 7-0 trip was the best in franchise history:
That's right. There has never been a perfect, undefeated road trip
longer than six games in franchise history. That record has now been
re-written after a 7-0 road sweep through San Francisco and St. Louis.
Add in that it was capped by a four-game series of muggings over the
formerly wild-card-holding Cardinals, and you have a road trip that
will live in Brewers' lore no matter what happens in the future.

Very cool. The most memorable Brewers road trip I can remember is the infamous "Sweep Suit" series, and the Brewers promptly went to Pittsburgh, got embarrassed, and the season was essentially over. I have a very strong feeling this series will be different, as Sheets and Sabathia should prevent the Brewers from losing more than a couple at a time. God damn that is powerful stuff in that rotation.
