1 run game.

PH used in the 9th with 2 on, 2 out.

Yep. Ryan Braun wasn't needed tonight when you have Jason Rogers.

:lmao:

Braun wasn't even at the game.

Ignorance is bliss!

Could have been the greatest Wiliis Reid moment ever. Braun not even at the park comes out of the dugout for a pinch hit double scoring two runs for the go ahead. Braun, limping around the bases, would be relieved for a pinch runner, leaving to a standing ovation. The Brewers go on to win the game and make a dramatic September, October, November run to the World Series title.

Casey ####### McGehee :lmao:

It's actually pretty comical at this point. While they are technically still sniffing the wild card I really hope this epic collapse continues, just for the entertainment value.

I'm shocked that everyone doesn't do that with Garza on the hill.

:wall: :wall: Great pitching by Lohse. UGH!!!! mid relief.

Ultimately, the hitting freaking sucks. The pitchers should be pissed off because they have been spectacular.

Has there ever been a worse collapse from a team? I mean, to be in first place for how many days in one season to all of a sudden be complete garbage? I know there were teams to collapse from an X game lead in the final days of the season and all but were those teams in first place for 150+ days of the season?

If I was a starting pitcher on this team, I'd be pissed off royally. The last 30 games the pitchers have given up like 2.5 runs a game and yet the team is like 8-25 or something. Really? If any team is giving up 2.5 runs a game, they should be 25-8 in that stretch. So sickening.

The hot first month covered up a lot of bad play. After that they well well below .500. The only thing that kept them in first place for 150+ days was relatively poor play by both Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

This is sort of true, April they were 19-8 and June they were 18-10, May, July, August and Sept they were 43-58

August they were 13-14 and Sept is pretty much the nail in the coffin sitting at 6-13, and since Aug 26th they are 7-18.

An epic collapse all the way around.

Watching the player introductions for the Kansas City Royals for the American League wildcard game managed by Ned Yost. Leading off - Alcides Escobar. Batting 2nd - Norichika Aoki Batting 3rd - Lorenzo Cain. What do all four have in common? All former Brewers gotten rid of by GM Doug Melvin

The 2011 team wouldn't have gotten two games away from the World Series without the Greinke trade.

Melvin got a decent arm for a year's worth of Aoki's contract.

ETA: Ned Yost? Really?

Rotten Ron coming back.

It was all Garth Iorg's fault.

What a complete joke this team is. Attanasio really doesn't care about winning. Faux outrage at the epic collapse.

Going to be difficult to support this team next year.

Really angry right now

Hey Brewers fans, feel free to skip a hot dog or 800 this year. Nice kiddie-slide btw.

Double ouch

Lose 10-0 on opening day and Braun left in the 5th inning with a pain in his lower side.

I'll take 10-0 beatings on opening day though if the Badgers can win the national championship

Go Bucky!

Nice start to the season. Is it just me or does anyone else think .500 ball this year will be a major accomplishment? The Brewers tried selling us on the fact that they were in the race up until the last month of the season. In reality, they had a ridiculously hot first month of the season and played below .500 the rest of the year. They got rid of Yo. Didn't really make any improvements. I guess they are counting on Braun to stay healthy. (Oops!) This guy is soft. Segura to bounce back. Gennett to be a full-time player. Lucroy to repeat last year. Gomez to be an all-star again this year. Davis to put it together. Ramirez to stay healthy and not show his age. Nelson to be a decent pitcher despite not showing anything at the major league level last year. They need every one of those to go right. And then maybe, just maybe, they'll be in the playoff race.

Oh, and they also need Roenicke to somehow become at least an average manager. Last night's eighth inning was a perfect example. Two lefties coming up for the Rockies and RR brings in Broxton instead of Will Smith. His logic? Well, Broxton is their 8th inning guy. Despite the fact that he admits that it's the wrong matchup.

Peralta was replaced in the eighth by Broxton, who surrendered a one-out double to Charlie Blackmon. One pitch later Carlos Gonzalez hammered a 92-mph fastball off the lower portion of the scoreboard in right-center field, giving Colorado a 4-2 lead.

Both hitters are left-handed, but Roenicke opted to go with Broxton over lefty Will Smith.

"We talked about it," he said. "Right now we've decided that Broxton's going to be the eighth-inning pitcher. If it changes, we have to have that conversation and match up the seventh and eighth. We have three guys we like there, and maybe we'll try to match it up better.

"But we like Brox. That's not going to happen very often. But no question, it was set up better for a lefty."

Um, Ron, if it was set up for a lefty, then why didn't you bring in the lefty? Idiotic

Roenicke sucks.

Can't stand him, never could. There are Little League managers that could manage a better bullpen

I guess Gordon knew what he was doing when he traded Gallardo and moved Nelson into the starting rotation. He's the only pitcher that can win a game.

Getting there though. Tough to win any games when you can't score more than 3 runs a game. I'd be less concerned if it was just this year but their offensive struggles go back to last year.

I didn't think they would contend this year and hoped for .500 ball. But this is brutal. After their hot start in April last year they finished the season at 62-72. The Brewers brass either buried their head in the sand to last year's finish or hoped the fans were too ignorant to notice. Stood pat over the off-season. Reading the comments on the articles at MJS it's already getting ugly with fans. Gonna be a loooooooong season and really tough to sell tickets. This team plays bad defense, is lost offensively, has poor pitching, and a lousy manager. Not a lot of hope there.

10 runs is an offensive improvement, no?
