Brewers will win the pennant....
Not in our lifetime, perhaps, but catch this. General Manager Doug Melvin, returning from meetings of baseball folks in Arizona, commented on the firing of Ulice Payne, and I'm not kidding: "We talked to a number of teams regarding their organizations, about what their needs are as well as what we might be able to do to improve the Brewers." (Get the microphone away from this guy.) He then added, "there is speculation about Richie Sexson and Geoff Jenkins. I don't know if a trade will occur or not." Whoa Nelly!
Not to be outdone, Bob Quinn, senior vice president said, "Realistically, we're not going to compete for a division title this year or next year. It doesn't make baseball sense to go out and ramp-up payroll for cosmetic reasons when it does not put you in contention."
Answer this. If you won't be competitive, why would working families pay good money to see the team that has already given up? Get serious. Go Cubs!
