We'll have a series recap later, but for now, the Small Sample Size Clinic for Super Reactionaries proudly presents this short timeline of events to help put the 2013 Brewers situation into perspective...
April 4th, 2011: "An 0-4 to start the season? You gotta be kidding me! I knew this was too good to be true, we'll just always be on the outside looking in."
July 12th, 2009: "First place at the All-Star break! Nothing can stop us now!"
May 18th, 2008: "20-24...really? This team is completely hopeless with Melvin at the helm. Seriously, just fire everyone, we're never going to make it back to the playoffs with this regime running things."
May 9th, 2007: "FIRST PLACE! WE ARE IN FIRST PLACE!!! HONEY, PUT ME DOWN FOR WORLD SERIES TICKETS, CAUSE WE'RE RIDING THIS GRAVY TRAIN ALL THE WAY TO THE PROMISED LAND!"
December 25th, 2006: "Hey, did you hear? We signed Jeff Suppan! Finally, the big name starting pitcher we needed!"
June 1st, 1982: "This is ridiculous. We're 23-24, we just fired our manager, and now we expect the hitting coach to lead us to the World Series? Yeah, I'll believe that as soon as Pete Rose gets shut out of the Hall of Fame."
