Everything seemed to come in threes for the Brewers on the trip that ended Sunday night, and most of it was bad. In three stops—St. Louis, San Diego, San Francisco—there were three wins, three missed chances to take the rubber game and

Sure, it wasn't great that the Brewers lost their opening series to the team that ended their 2011 season. But a year ago they began with three losses in Cincinnati and ended two wins from the World Series. No, it was another Brewers-related topic that got the Observers going. Frank: A pair of six-run losses to the Cardinals, but also a six-run win and great pitching by Zack Greinke...

Matheny is just 41 and has no coaching experience - he was a minor-league instructor. However, the Cards interviewed 5 men for their head job and just one of them had major-league managing experience. Matheny received a two-year contract with a team option for a third year. That's not a lot of time for someone who's never managed before to establish himself or find a rhythm. Luckily fo...

The Brewers won their NLDS series against the Diamondbacks last night and shortly thereafter found out they'd be facing the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS. On the plus side, the Brewers have home-field advantage. On the negative, they have to play the Cardinals. Tensions between these two teams have been high all season, culminating in the September game where Chris Carpenter screamed at Nyjer Mo...

Well if you ask the St. Louis Cardinals, the Brewers are brash, cocky, mean and generally disrespectful of all things baseball. But in the SI.com player poll that was released last week, Chris Carpenter and Albert Pujols were ranked the seventh and eighth meanest players, while Nyjer Morgan was ranked ninth and Prince Fielder was ranked 13th. The poll was taken of 215 other major league baseball...

The Cardinals completed a sweep of the Brewers yesterday in spectacular fashion, as Albert Pujols, who the Brewers had really held in check over the season series until this point, went 4-for-4 with 5 RBI and two home-runs - including a third-inning grand slam that put the game out of the reach of the Brewers. Thursday's game featured a leadoff home run from Rafeael Furcal (who's hit 5 HR all seas...
