    With the Brewers rotation I would be SHOCKED if they finished that much below .500

      You’re probably right, but I was just thinking with the injuries to Greinke and Marcum you never know. Although Marcum’s doesn’t seem to be too serious.

      Whatever, it’s not like I’ve never made a prediction that was way off.
