For me, no.

They rode Sabathia as far as they could, overusing him in my opinion. I hope it doesn't affect his career long term.

Secondly, it was only the total ineptness of the Pirates against them that gave them their tickets to the post-season.
I find it refreshing that they are being brought back to reality having to play a team with some talent and motivation with
the chips on the line.

If the Brewers lose, are you going to pull out your shirt and run around the house acting crazy?

Nah, just making an observation.

I think the primary reason the Brewers sneaked into the playoffs (vs the Mets making it) was their
fortunate schedule that included so many late season games against the Pirates. They definitely
had their number and the Pirates found every way of losing to them this year.

It's probably petty of me, but I'd like to see them get bounced early.

The Brewers "sneaked" in because they had the best record of any non-division winner. We have one of these sneaky teams every year.

They have a good team and I'm rooting for them.

They did overuse Sabbathia, but they kind of had to, especially with Sheets going down.

I'm not rooting for them and I'm not rooting against them.

I will say that with the Cubs being swept and Milwaukee being down 2 games to 1, it makes the Central (which looked tough all year) seem much less so now.

I just don't care either way. In the end I'll probably end up rooting for the Red Sox or Rays.
