The Brewers’ struggles continued as the Phillies came into Miller Park and wreaked havoc.

The Braves had just swept the Brewers the previous three games, and the Phillies did exactly the same thing.

Things can’t be any worse right now for the Brewers. Players are getting injured, pitchers are struggling, and hitters are failing to get the big hit with runners on.

Take Satruday for example, the Brewers had the bases loaded, and Rickie Weeks and Craig Counsell both struck out.

The bullpen continues to struggle, and the rotation is now battered even more with Doug Davis going to the DL for a heart problem.

Is there any hope right now for this struggling squad?

There is no hope unless the pitching staff can turn things around and hitters can start getting hits with men on base.

General Manager Doug Melvin has to do something, whether it’s firing Ken Macha or Rick Peterson, making a trade or signing.

Wouldn’t Jarrod Washburn be a fine addition to a struggling pitching staff?

Wouldn’t Jermaine Dye’s bat look good in the lineup with Carlos Gomez on the DL and Jim Edmonds possibly joining him?

Things have to start turning around soon, or the Brewers may end up being the cellar dweller.
