Four short years ago, the Brewers endured "the worst second-half collapse in baseball history." Who knew they'd be the good ol' days? The quest for 90 wins requires winning today, sweeping the Rats at home, and taking 2 of 3 from the Cubs. We're also 2.5 games behind the Mets for the wild card, and they have a tougher schedule. 90 wins (or fewer) might yet make the playoffs! This is your Happy Thoughts(TM) open thread.

From another sbnation blog. The quotes of CcC (not to be confused with CC or C.C.) quoted don't seem to indicate that he had a problem with Bud's decision, but that's the author's take. In any case, anyone know what else Cecil may have said?
