Power Rankings
I love this offense. This ranking skyrockets with Mike Fiers being even remotely similar to last season and Jimmy Nelson breaking through. Definitely don't count these guys out.
It doesn't feel like a positive season after the collapse, but they did improve by eight games from last season.
It would appear we're witnessing the final days of Rickie Weeks with the Brewers. He's been around for 11 seasons, in which the Brewers made the playoffs twice. Before that, they hadn't been since 1982. He was an important part of a little franchise renaissance.
And now they've won five of six. Of course they have. We're talking about a team that has two stretches where they went a combined 4-27 (June 29-July 12 and Aug. 20-Sept. 9). Otherwise, they are 75-45. They could lose out or win the World Series and neither would be remotely surprising.
Man, this is painful. If you know a Brewers fan, give him or her a hug. Also, I've long noted (and been ignored by most) the Power Rankings are an intersection of body of work, the makeup of the roster (that is, how good should it be moving forward) and "what have you done for me lately." Based upon that, the Brewers were pretty tough to rank. Body of work, they'd be a little higher, but in the latter category, they'd be duking it out with the Rangers. I'm open to any argument here. (As for my "who wins a seven-game series" thing, that's my tiebreaker).
The Carlos Gomez injury could be devastating, given the team's recent performance and big upcoming games. He's awfully valuable.
Francisco Rodriguez is still getting the job done, but his home runs allowed -- eight in his past 24.2 innings -- are becoming an issue.
Three players with 20-plus homers and none of them named Ryan Braun? Talk about a stacked lineup.
Mike Fiers stepping up to throw an incredible game and beat the Dodgers on Saturday is exactly the kind of bit-player contribution you see from playoff teams.
It was so under the radar on an unbelievably entertaining deadline day, but I really loved Doug Melvin grabbing Gerardo Parra. He'll prove to be a valuable piece down the stretch.
