It was a modest goal, to be sure, but it was within the Bucks' reach. Energized by the mid-March trade that landed shooting guard Monta Ellis from Golden State, they climbed to the .500 mark on April 7 and were a half-game behind New York for the last spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Then they lost five of six games, including a heartbreaker at home to the Knicks and a disaster against lowly Washington. The slump dropped them three games behind Philadelphia in the playoff race, and Monday night they were officially eliminated for the fifth time in six years....

The Fairly Detached Observers

While the Brewers were rolling past the Cardinals and taking aim at the Cubs, the Observers convened at the Ball Park—a South Side sports bar, not the place with the sliding roof. Frank: Breaking news, Artie! I’ve discovered that the stars are aligned for the Brewers...
