With the high school winter season about to pick up again this week, I thought it might be a good time for a blog on the Brewers.
Many fans are starting to panic because the Brewers have not done much to improve last year's Wild Card team. Everyone knew that C.C. Sabathia and Ben Sheets wouldn't be coming back, but they figured Melvin would do something to add some arms - you are not going to replace them with similar talent, of course. Not much as been done - but except for the Yankees, Mets and Angels - no one has done too much.
There will be two big Greater Metro Conference games coming up this Friday - one on the boys side and one on the girls.
5th-ranked Divine Savior Holy Angels (6-0, 9-1) and 7th-rated Brookfield Central (6-0, 11-1) meet in Brookfield at 7:30 p.m. Friday night. Last year Central won the title, beating the Dashers on the road (45-38) and then DSHA beat Central at home in the season finale after the Lady Lancers won the title (42-29).
Both the Brookfield Central girls and the Wauwatosa East boys sit on top of the Greater Metro Conference with unbeaten records in conference. Both teams have talent, plenty of talent and that is why they are the favorites to win their conferences if they play up to their abilities.
Last Saturday in one of the best defensive games I have seen, Central beat an outstanding Divine Savior Holy Angels team, 36-33. If fact, Central had the Dashers down by seven, only to see them rally to within one in the final seconds.
