We close out one of the most entertaining Brewers' seasons ever.

A really nice season for Sunday. Will 2018 be even better?

My thanks to the young Brewers (and the old ones, too) for providing me with some exciting viewing and pondering this season. As they say, Wait 'Til Next Year! Of course, a better season next season isn't a guarantee, but boy will we have some fun stuff to discuss...and maybe some very interesting additions from Slingin' David Stearns.

In keeping with MLB rules, both teams are starting very fringe major leaguers. Milwaukee sends out Aaron Wilkerson (0-0, 8.10) to face the Cards' Jack Flaherty (0-1, 6.06).
