These guys are pretty good.
Saito has pitched six years in the MLB and has never had an ERA above 2.83.
Hawkins is having his best season in years.
Rodriguez has a 1.86 ERA since joining the Crew
Axford has been really, really, good
Even Kameron Loe, who was overworked early and had a 4.50 ERA in the first half has lowered his ERA to 3.50 with a 1.93 ERA since the All Star break.
What I like most, however, is that these guys all have have closing experience, and all but Axford had playoff experience entering this year's playoffs.
The talking heads will go on and on about Greinke, Gallardo, and Marcum or Braun and Fielder, but I think getting Saito and Rodriguez in July to solidify the back end is what put the Brewers over the top. Saito returned July 2nd and Rodriguez arrived July 12th. Since then the Brewers are 49-23
