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

20th the Brewers rank in team ERA. (4.20)
.196 ERA for rookie phenom (not named Trout or Harper) for Michael Friers
