Doom set in the moment John Axford gave up the two-run dinger to Pittsburgh. It was a sign that the weekend was going to be a humbling one. The Cardinals seemed happy to make the point sweeping a 4-game series at Miller Park.
The Brewers seemed to find ways to lose at times. Giving up the big inning, making the untimely error, hitting into inning ending double plays. It was repeated all weekend until the Cards gave them a thumping on Sunday to put them out of their misery.
The view was good on Saturday, but they play on the field didn't measure up.
The Texas Rangers come to town on Tuesday. The Brewers should have Aramis Ramirez back at third base soon. For once in his career he had a good start to the season. I hope he doesn't fall back into his spring funk after missing a couple of weeks. Having declined minor league rehab, it feels like a certainty.
