How did the Brewers all of a sudden pass the Cubs in the NL Central standings?
Hint: the current headline at their website is, "Brewers win 17th in a row over Bucs."
Answer: Scheduling, son!
Sure, they managed to snag a couple of road series wins along the way, most notably a three-gamer in Philadelphia. But those series wins weren't nearly as helpful as the five Ws the Brewers got from playing the league's worst team.
Remind you of anyone? Like, say the Cubs from April 2008? We had a record that was something like six games above .500, if I'm not mistaken--and had gone 6-0 against the Pirates in the month.
Milwaukee sucks. We're gonna torch them after a couple more months of good baseball.
Bring on the Pirates!
