I Love the Brewers Bullpen
Wow. The Brewers bullpen is just as bad as the Mets. Who thought that there could be two totally unreliable bullpens in the National League, but lo and behold there are!
The Brewers were up 6-2 with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th, and ended up losing 7-6 in extra innings.
Sound familiar? I know. It's creepy.
The crack squad of Guillermo Mota and Eric Gagne are as formidable as Scott Blowenweiss and Aaron Heilman. The crazy part is both the Brewers and the Mets are competing for a playoff spot. Imagine the situation both of these teams would be in if they had a half decent bullpen.
Could the Brewers be the 2008 version of the 2007 Mets? Possibly. In any case I'm officially scoreboard watching as much as I'm following the Mets. Sometimes it's just less painful.
