Since they traded Sexson for Overbay and co., I've been a pretty big supporter of the Brewers. I drafted Sheets in my keeper league last season. Kept Sheets and also added Carlos Lee and Brady Clark.

Trading Kolb and Podsednik for Carlos Lee, Vizcaino were also huge upgrades. Seems like Maddux is working his magic with the rest of the pitching staff. Today's win puts them at .500 and hopefully Sheets comes back on Saturday to dominate. ;-D

Boy, I hope Sheets dominates....he's been on my DL for what seems like forever!!! I can't wait, and with that bolstered offense, it can only bode well for Sheets! ;-D

Ive pretty much been a fan since 2002, and they really are much better than they get credit for. Maddux is an amazing pitching coach, while their offense is pretty strong too. As much as I loved Scotty Po., Lee is the man ;-D

Ive been a cubs fan all my life and would never have thought i could say im a fan of any other team in the NL central, but i really like the brewers. I like them last year and its even better this year with the addition of Lee. Its alot of fun watching the team and hearing steve stoner do the broadcasts.

They have done an amazing job, and the best may still be to come with that farm system. The trades with Arizona and the Sox were robberies. They would be a real fun team to follow right now.

I'm a Red Sox lifer and that's not about to change. But I really enjoyed watching this Milwaukee team scratch and claw for a good portion of last season before wearing down. I imagine this could happen again, but I thought Yost did as good a managing job as anyone in '04, and he's proving it was no fluke in '05.

And they have some nice talent at the next level that's not that far away. Let's just hope the new owners maintain the commitment and that this becomes a viable contending franchise.

The key to that lineup is Clark. The kid is an on-base machine and does not strike out.

Yeah, I'm sure most here who have ever read one of my posts know how I feel about the Brew. I'm really enjoying their season thus far. They've had big ups and big downs, but for the first time in a decade I feel like they have a chance going into each game. We're not trotting guys like Ruben Quevedo, Paul Rigdon, Jamey Wright, etc out to pitch every day. I only wish the previous regime, prior to Melvin and Co., hadn't made so many bad trades and bad draft picks. They gave away guys like Ronnie Belliard and Mark Loretta for absolutely nothing. I cringed so badly last year when they both were in the all star game.

Anyway, with an owner willing to spend money, a GM who continues to find gems where others see sheet rock, an elite pitching coach, a legitimate ace, and a top 3 farm system, I feel that the Brewers are going to get their shot soon. Maybe 2007-2008ish? Then, it comes down to how well they can continue to have success. Honestly, I think once we start winning, the fans will fill The Keg. Milwaukee's dying for a winner. Even last year we only had the 10th worst attendance or so, better than some much more successful teams.
