A Month to Remember

On July 25th the Brewers sat a half game out of first place, behind co-division leaders Pittsburgh and St. Louis. Needless to say, one month later the picture has changed. The Pirates, as many of us expected, fell completely out of contention in rather quick fashion, while the Cardinals went 13-15 over the next month. The Brewers, meanwhile, won 24 of their next 29 games. The Crew now leads the Cardinals by nine and a half games, and the Pirates have fallen even further, sitting behind the Reds in fourth place at 16 games back.

The NL Central is now the Brewers' to lose, and while a postseason birth is by no means guaranteed, it's looking more and more likely everyday. The month of August has been great for Brewer fans. It's been one of the most dominating performances in club history and I've thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, watching and marveling at this club and what they've accomplished over the past month. It's certainly been a month I'll remember for a long, long while.
