Let's hypothesize something. Let's say that the Brewers don't make the playoffs. Let's say the slide continues and they can't catch the Phils (or Mets).

Does that make this a bad move on Milwaukee's part? Or do they get a bit of a pass because the team was in shambles in September anyway?

If you want to sell a newspaper in Milwaukee, of course you'll blame ownership. Maybe even get someone to talk about how great Yost was. Rope a player into saying something bad about the move.

But there's no relationship between the two.

Hopefully the team made the decision based on process and not results. As in, Yost keeps throwing out the struggling players and not using his bench guys well. Yost is making CC pitch 130 pitches when he's up by 8 runs. Yost puts Tony Gwynn junior at the top of the lineup instead of moving Hart up when Cameron is out because he "doesn't want to mess anyone else up by moving them around." Etc. etc.

The Brewers are on life support right now. They're at home for their final six -three against the Pirates, three agains the Cubs. The Mets have four against the Cubs and three against Florida, all at home.

The Cubs figure to be resting several starters and playing their expanded roster in spot duty... but they were doing that against St. Louis last weekend and still won the series.

The Brew Crew needs to sweep the Pirates and hope the Marlins take at least a game off of the Mets.

Life support's a bit of a strong term...with the Cubs' win tonight, the Brewers are only 1 game back with 6 to play, and that includes 3 home games with the Pirates, a team that Milwaukee has dismantled this season. That's not to say the odds are in our favor, but a Brewers win vs. Pitt tomorrow coupled with a Mets loss and it's all tied up. Of course, that Mets game is a Johan Santana vs. Sean Marshall matchup...but crazier things have happened. And the Mets are currently slated to face Zambrano and Harden to finish the series, meaning Milwaukee will miss those 2 when Chicago comes to town (presumably we'll face Dempster, Marquis, Marshall? Correct me if I'm wrong, knapplc).

An interesting note -- with Sheets down and Suppan struggling badly, rumors are circulating that Yovani Gallardo may start a game before the year's out, as long as we're still relevant. Presumably he would "piggyback" with another pitcher, maybe Villanueva, Difelice, or Parra. His injury was to the knee, so his arm should be fine. That sure would be interesting to see.

EDIT -- I'm missing Lilly in there...did the Cubs inject a 6th starter (Marshall) in there for some reason?
