What I really enjoyed was the display of real emotion that was on display after they won the game. Prince [Fielder] spiked his helmet and the rest of the team acted like they had just won the division. Nice to see they still care I had been starting to have some doubts lately since they have sleepwalked through a few games.
NOBODY PICKED UP THE WILD CARD. The teams in contention for the National League's at-large playoff berth appear to be playing for leaster. The Milwaukee Brewers, despite having a terrible May, June, July, and beginning of August, are no worse than four games out of the wild card, with current frontrunner Cincinnati in their division. At the Wisconsin Sports Bar, an observer suggests the young players are still committed to the cause.
