Playoffs already out of reach?


Comparing this season's record at May 25 to previous Brewer seasons, no club has ever started as poorly as the 2012 squad (or worse) and ended up with a .500 record or better. The closest comparison is the 2010 squad, which started 18-27. They played slightly above .500 after that to finish at 77-85, good enough to get Ken Macha fired.

If we played like the 1989 squad, we could go 63-55 the rest of the way and finish exactly at .500. I'd be happy with that outcome, but we wouldn't make the playoffs. What we could really use is a finish like 1992. We started that season 20-22, but played .600 baseball from that point on and finished 92-70. If we played .600 ball for the rest of the year we would be 89-73, which would definitely put us in contention for a playoff spot.

Maybe. Playing .600 ball from here out might get us to the playoffs, and I don't think with all of our holes that we're capable of it. I think we're already a selling team.
