The Milwaukee Brewers continue to struggle with inconsistency. They did take two out of three from the Cubs over the weekend, but considering the current status of the north-enders we shouldnt read too much into that. And, the bullpen did not look good over the weekend. Edwin Maysonet looked good over the weekend as a fill-in for the injured Rickie Weeks but lets wait awhile before we start yelling for Manager Ron Roenicke too permantly replace Weeks. The biggest concern right now is the bullpen and until that gets figured out the up & down season of the Brew Crew will continue.
