Yes, the 2011 Brewers have now surpassed the pre-season predictions. Most baseball writers did not even pick them to be in the playoffs and if they die not to go this far. (tied with St. Louis 2 to 2). What changed ? 1. a new innovative manager who uses his talented players the right way. 2. an owner who after being burned by signing pitching failures agreed to spend again for two solid starting pitchers. 3. a general manager who sought out and got cast off players including two relief pitchers give us an excellent pitching staff. 4. an MVP season by Ryan Braun who always plays to win never has thoughts of leaving and does not complain. 5. a spirit never there since 1982 . 6. real baseball fans who are true believers. 7. old baseball tricks warmed over like the double steal, the bunt and finding a way to score a run from 3rd base.
Two consecutive wins, believe it or not, will give us a World Series.
there is no room for the naysayers at Miller Park.
This is now a franchise that will be contenders for a long time to come.
