I told Mike Wickett this morning that it feels like the walls are caving in. The Pirates, Cardinals and Reds are closing in on the Milwaukee Brewers,who are battling injuries to their middle infielders, a few starters and a bullpen that is leaking in the middle relief. It gets no easier having to face the likes of Lincecum, Beckett, Greinke and Kershaw in the next week at Miller Park.
If Matt Garza has to miss a start, or worse,go on the disabled list, it would be the team's biggest blow. Garza has been "vintage 2008". Argubly,their best starter among a group that has been outstanding.
The three teams behind them in them in standings have been bearing down heavily in last month,hopefully the Brewers can find a few things to keep fending them off..
