One year ago, I was in Milwaukee where all was benign and friendly, a Mets fan on holiday casually taking in the Brewers and Pirates, more engaged by the bratwursts than the baseball. I even sampled the local beverage scene as a professional courtesy to the good folks of Wisconsin.
It’s a whole different Labor Day Weekend now, the Brewers much improved, the Mets in a divisional battle, our reward, should we prevail, likely another series at Miller Park, next time with C.C. Sabathia staring us in the face.
I’d say the next three days in Milwaukee will be pretty frothy. Wouldn’t you?
