Oh, Dan, Please Forgive Me...

It's getting to be crunchtime in Major League Baseball, and in World Series Survivor. Everyone still alive has a legitimate chance to go to the playoffs, and as we know from last year's strong showing by St. Louis, anyone in the playoffs has a chance to win. So now I need to look deeper at the teams. I need to look 6-8 weeks into the future and decide how each team is going to be playing and figure out what kind of a chance they have to win it all.

Unfortunately, the Brewers are the only team left that have given up more runs than they have scored, and their starting pitching has looked less than stellar of late. This means that I am going to have to say goodbye to Milwaukee until next year.

I know this is going to break Dan's heart, but the team is young, they have gotten a lot of experience this year, and a winning team is cause for celebration and encourages the owners to go ahead and take that next step in the offseason. Let's hope they do even better next year.

This leaves me with an odd situation, in that there are no teams left in the NL Central to eliminate, but there are still 3 teams alive in each of the other two NL divisions. Will the World Series be going home to one of these cities? We'll have to wait and find out.
