Milwaukee's bullpen actually has been a strength. Not last night.

Fat Albers has begun his descent back to reality after a good start. Sox fans are familiar with that sort of regression from him.

Unfortunately, the Cubs probably are the best team in the NL this year. I look forward to them being overmatched by one of the AL powerhouses in the World Series, however.

The Cubs are the only team in baseball that hasn't lost a starting player or pitcher FOR THE SEASON in 4 years. Even Schwarber came back to play in the playoffs in 2016. If that continues they're in. However in baseball generally what goes around comes around......they may lose their whole team in a month.

On The Score this morning, they were all but picking their spots along the parade route.

Well these guys are going to make the playoffs short of a hurricane...but the playoffs are always a crap shoot. Washington, without Dusty Baker, and assuming they have most of their guys back by then, will not be a pushover.

They still exist as a radio outlet?

Shutout 2 games in a row. Nice little fall back down to earth after the excitement and joy of their 7-2 extra inning win the first game. I loved the Brewers stepping up and taking the series after a disappointing first game.

I was really hoping the circus act involving 2 pitchers playing left field was going to backfire for Joe the Clown. It didn’t, but the Brewers got the win anyway.

The called third strike, guess what Tony, it was a strike. Tony should have been tossed from the game. Tony Rizzo is a douche-bag.

Maybe they can make it three and pay the Cubs back?

The old saying "Momentum is as good as next day's starting pitcher" comes to mind.

Why is it when Rizzo is at a charity event or donating time or money to charity there is ALWAYS a camera there. It's called Brand management. Many celebs and entertainers donate lots of money, but most of the time it's behind the scenes. Rizzo may be generous but does the camera ALWAYS have to be on. Just asking......

I was at the game at Miller park Monday night- the Brewers looked disheartened by the end of the game- impressive the way they came back and took the series.

Albers looks like he's even more out of shape than he looked with us.

I understand what you're saying and there does seem to be a lot of media coverage of Rizzo's events. That said, it's really hard for me to throw any shade at Rizzo's commitment to charitable causes. He won the 2017 Roberto Clemente Award. He seems like a good guy and a great teammate. He's a cancer survivor. If he was playing on the South Side, we would all love him. It's really hard for me to dislike both Rizzo and Bryant despite the fact that they play for the Cubs.

I agree- he's a good ball player and seems like a genuine leader and gives alot back to the community.

They're both pretty quality individuals, it would appear. We root for/against laundry - no need to turn the human beings themselves into evil constructs.
