The Brewers are doing their best to impersonate what the Mets did last year and fall to pieces down the stretch. Something they quietly did themselves last year as well. The Brewers are just 5-15 over their last 20 games and are surviving in the wildcard race only because the Mets can't win either. They will send Dave Bush to the rescue, but he has been unsuccessful in September, as the Brewers are 0-4 in his September starts with opponents scoring seven runs a game. The Pirates can perhaps find some salvation in spoiling it for the Brewers. It seems that as the need to win grows, the Brewers get further from the win column and the oddsmakers keep jacking up the price. As a result the only value to be found here is on the Pirates.
