Default Congratulations to the Brewers

Division champs, and the #1 seed in the NL. Peaking at the right time on an 8 game winning streak. Nice to see a small market team competing with the big boys.

Def nice to see some fresh faces in the mix. Between the Patriots in football, Golden State and Cavs in BB, and the top ranked teams always making it to the finals in March Madness, seems like the winner of most things these days in largely pre-ordained before the competition even starts.

Of course you can always count on my Mets to collapse when picked to make the post season. Money in the bank on that one.

Quite a run to the crown.
Congrats to all Brewers fans on the 1st Division title.

Hope Yelich wins the MVP. He had a second half for the ages, highlighted by the two cycles he hit for against the Reds.

I'm hoping for an Indians/Brewers World Series so Bob Uecker can call a real Indians World Series game.

Congrats Brewers! I root for ANYONE playing the Cubs though. Go Rockies!

I think it's basically assumed he will win.

Thanks all. I nearly lost it yesterday when we beat the Cubs. Been on cloud nine since.

By the way, it’s not our first division title. Not even in the NL. We won 96 games in 2011, and won the Central, but lost in the NLCS to the eventual World Champion Cardinals.

Then, we won it back in 1981 and 1982 back in the American League.

It would be so nice to finally win it all, but I think this team is ahead of where we expected to be. We really need a healthy Jimmy Nelson, and another top line starter, to make a serious deep run in the playoffs. Gio and Wade have done yeoman service since coming to Milwaukee, but they wouldn’t match up well against a team like the Astros.

Still, miracles can happen.

As for Yelich, he’s pretty much a lock for MVP. If he doesn’t win, a major investigation should be launched. His second half was ridiculous, but his September/October is right up there with Yaz’s last few weeks of 1967.

In 27 games from 9/1 to 10/1, in 118 PAs, he scored 24 runs, had 6 doubles, 2 triples, 10 home runs, 34 RBI, stole 7 bases in 8 tries, walked 24 times against 16 Ks, hit .370 and had an obscene slash line of .508 OBP/.805 SLG/1.313 OPS.

In 65 second half games, 294 PAs, he scored 58 runs, had 18 doubles, 5 triples, 25 home runs, 67 RBI, 35 BB and 52 KS, 10/12 SB, hit .367, and slashed .449 OBP/.770 SLG/1.219 OPS.

And he was an All Star, so he had a good first half, too.

Who would possibly beat him? Báez? LOL, Yellich’s AVG is nearly higher than Baez’s OBP. Báez is great defensively, but Yelich’s defensive metrics are above average. The guy’s won a Gold Glove before.

Winning a batting title, missing a Triple Crown by 2 HR and 1 RBI, when it hasn’t happened in the NL since 1937, OPSing 1.000 for the season, and having an historic close to the season pretty much guaranteed he wins it.
