To measure the Brewers and Cardinals fortunes since September 18th runs the risk of using a slightly small sample size, but I think it gives us a good idea of where the teams are at this point in the season. The Brewers are unlikely to ever lose a game, while under no circumstances could the Cardinals win one.
Especially when the pitching matchup is Ben Sheets vs. Jeff Weaver. I mean, come on. Anyway, Geoff Jenkins will probably hit another homer, and Francisco Cordero will strike out the side in the ninth inning on only eight pitches.
