With our ace on the mound it doesn't get any better. What's everyone's confidence level about this series? I think the bucs are going to take care of buisness.

It's "Do or Die" time. We certainly are capable of pounding the Brewers, and we owe them many ass whoopin's from years past. But the way this team is pitching lately, I just don't feel really confident. If we sweep, then we'll know that the magic is back. If we get swept, then it will be really hard to watch games the rest of the year. And any split needs to go in our favor. If we win tonight, I'll get more confident. I'll be watching every pitch of this series, but I don't feel super-confident at this point.

I don't know how they'll perform. However, if they don't place laser-focused baseball, I'm going to be incredibly disappointed. I want to see solid approaches at the plate; a solid strategy employed in any particular situation. I want to see AJ throwing strikes and working ahead in counts; I want to see him keeping the Brewers' hitters off balance and I don't want to see any free passes. I want to see the defense play error free baseball and fundamentally sound baseball; no extra bases.

If they lose tonight, I'm going to be disappointed. If they lose while playing good baseball, it will help the pain. Part of what makes the last 50 or so games so painful is the poor quality of play. That's really hard to swallow.

Maybe I'm just talking myself into seeing signs of life, but I think we'll take at least 2. It sure would make the next two weeks more fun.

I'm not feeling confident but you never know. I'd be thrilled with 2 of 3.

At any rate we are playing playoff meaningfull baseball on 9/18. That is certainly a start in right direction.
