Dear Mr. Reynolds...

Harold Reynolds, a baseball analyst for ESPN ( and usually a pretty astute one at that ), has picked the Milwaukee Brewers to win the NL Central.

I'll repeat myself for those of you that fell out of your chair laughing, or are rubbing your eyes to make sure you read that right.

He picked them to win the division at years end.

Nevermind that there's the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros ( the last two NL reps in the World Series ), and even the pesky Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs aren't supposed to be a major factor in the division, but they seem to mess with the Brewers at the worst possible times for the BrewCrew.

Hey now, I hope I'm wrong for mocking Mr. Reynolds. An automatic playoff berth would be fantastic. But we've got hardly anybody except for our 35 year old catcher, who's got playoff experience, let alone ever been in a playoff race.

But hell, that's why sports are great. Every year, hope springs eternal. And so far, after one game, Mr. Reynolds is right. Lets hope it stays that way.
