My dad often uses this expression : Figures lie, and liars figure.   He also referred darkly to “lies, damned lies, and statistics” – although Mark Twain might have said it first.

Let’s sum up the first 95 games of the Milwaukee Brewers by the numbers.  You can then figure your own lies if you will and figure out the Brewers craptastic season.

(Hotties sprinkled in so you don’t fall asleep.)

current record: 44-51

7 games below .500

39-56 Chicago Cubs Suck

There you go A-Rodge!

3 teams ahead of them.  Cincy, Pitt, and St. Louis.

8 games behind Cincinnati.

26-23 at home

18-28 on the road

67 games left

38-29 to get to .500

52 out of 67 to get to 96 wins (.776)

96 wins is what the Milwaukee Brewers won last year

I don’t know what the Brewers are going to do with 2 productive catchers either.

2 games behind Cincy if John Axford would of had a perfect season (6 blown saves so far)

1 game behind Cincy if Axford is perfect and KROD doesn’t blow it last night

.193 Rickie Weeks average for the year.

.249 Rickie Weeks career average.

.308 Prince Fielder’s average this year.

.299 Prince Fielder’s average last year.

.279 Aramis Ramirez’s average this year.

.229 Nyjer Morgan’s average this year.

.304 Nyjer Morgan’s average last year.

.308, .390, 26 hr, .982 ops this year for Ryan Braun. (Stud.)

0 game suspension for Ryan Braun.

Olympics > Brewers

23rd (out of 30) the Brewers are in team batting average (.245)  *** A’s are lowest at .228.  ouch.

20th the Brewers rank in team ERA. (4.20)

.196 ERA for rookie phenom (not named Trout or Harper) for Michael Friers

3-4 record for rookie phenom

Um…what were we talking about?

13 games appeared in this year for Shawn Marcum

10.5 games back with 30 games left the St. Louis Cardinals were last year before they won the World Series.
