We knew theyd come slumping back to reality eventually. Contrast them with the Milwaukee Brewers. After gamely pushing the Cubs to the brink in the National League Central last year, the Brew Crew has so far owned the early returns in that division (and swept three games against the Marlins in Milwaukee). The loss of second baseman Rickie Weeks to a bum left wrist felled one of the Brewers bigger bats a shard of hope for a Marlins team that could really use about five more series against the Nationals instead of a three-game set against Milwaukee, beginning Monday at 7:10 p.m. at Landshark Stadium (formerly Dolphin Stadium, 2269 NW 199th St. in Miami Gardens). The cheap seats start at $12. Walk up to the box office or get your seats in advance at florida.marlins.mlb.com, or by calling 954-523-3309.
