The Crew finished up the season at Miller Park with a loss, a fitting end to a disappointing season. I will say that I was one of the people who drank the Kool-Aid in the beginning of the year and believed that our hitting could overcome the lack of pitching. For a while there it looked like our pitching was a lot better than people had predicted, but it didn't take long for that to come to an end. Injuries and below average achievement put an end to what was expected by a lot to be a repeat of last year and another playoff appearance.

Think about why you are disappointed with the season. Is it because we didn't make the playoffs in back to back years? Is it because we were not competitive enough to stay in the race until the end and make for an exciting finish? Was it because the Cubs had a better record? As you are asking yourself these questions think back to earlier in the decade, then back to the 90's. Would a season like this year be as difficult to swallow in 2003 after the previous 106 loss season? I think the point I'm trying to make is I'm glad I'm not happy with the outcome of this year and you should be too. I've come to expect more since Attanasio took over the team. More than anything that's a testament to the level of baseball that Mark and his team has been able to bring back to Milwaukee.

Thank you Mark... Now go get some pitching and bring us a winner in 2010.
UPDATE: I kinda worded this poorly. I do realize that the season is not over. I meant the end of games at Miller Park.
