Well, that's all she wrote. The 2009 season is over for the Brewers. Time to kick back and watch the other teams in the playoffs... unless, of course, Ghost Hunters is on.

Follow the jumps for pictures and McAwesome!

Villy_stache_medium
Carlos Villanueva got his only win of the season after starting Saturday. Fortunately (or unfortunately), sometime before Sunday's game, he shaved off the 'stache.

 

Esky_beats_it_out_medium
Alcides Escobar tried to make his case for why he should stick around in the majors next year when he barely beat out a tag at first base.

 

Counsell_catches_holiday_stealing_medium
Craig Counsell caught a mid-game Holliday, as the Cardinals left fielder tried to steal a base.

 

Gerut_rbi_single_medium
Jody Gerut got an RBI single, proving that's he's worth more than just his awesome at-bat song.

 

Braun_s_200_hit_of_the_season_sat_medium
Ryan Braun got his 200th hit of the year via a home run Saturday, becoming only one of four Brewers to do so. Sunday, he stole his 20th base of the season also, becoming only the second Brewer to get 30 HRs and 20 steals in the same season. The other was Tommy Harper in 1971.

 

Hoffman_medium
Trevor Hoffman kept things interesting Sunday afternoon, when he walked three batters in a row. He's "pretty close" to becoming a Brewer next season. EDIT: If you haven't seen the news, the Hoff is sticking around. (fanshot)

 

Prince_s_final_2009_hr_medium
Prince Fielder hit his final home run of the season Sunday afternoon in the ninth inning. My favorite part about the HR was that it came right after Albert Pujols broke a record by getting his 185th assist of the season. Karma is a beautiful thing.

 

Final_hugs__counsell__esky__prince__felipe_medium
This is definitely one of my favorite pictures from the whole season. In case you can't tell, Prince is hugging Felipe Lopez and Craiggers is hugging Esky. It's nice to see two players who have been on the team for a while embracing the newer players, despite the short length that those two have been on the team.

 

Mcclung_medium
Oh, and I couldn't find any recent pictures of Seth McClung. :(  This is one of my favorite pictures of McClung from last season. (If you haven't visited, it's also the background on Seth's twitter page)

All pictures, except for the one featuring McAwesome, are from Yahoo! I wanted to apologize for the recent lack of KPotW posts. My classes have proven to be a little more rigorous than I had expected.
