Astros Lose 2 of 3 to Brewers - Kiss Any Chance of the Playoffs Goodbye?

Okay don't get me wrong here... but it's not exactly like the Astros had a good chance to make the playoffs anyways... but one thing I can tell you for sure is that, losing 2 straight series... isn't the way to the promised land. 

With that being said... technically the Astros still have a chance to make the playoffs... A lot of people are saying that if the Astros had any hope of making the playoffs, that they needed to AT LEAST win 2 of 3 from the Brewers and better yet, sweep the 3 game series... but honestly...  Losing 2 of 3 against the Diamondbacks and then coming back and losing 2 of 3 to the Brewers... didn't really put the Astros in much worse of a position than they were... let say a week ago.  Let's face it, the Astros chances of making the playoffs a week ago were slim to none at best... so it can't get much worse. 

Anyways...  Yes, we sucked in the last 2 series and yes we're probably not going to make the playoffs... But let's look on the bright side... We could be the Tampa Bay Rays.. wait.. Doh, they are good this year... scratch that.  With the loss today, the Astros are back to being 8 1/2 games out of the Wild Card Race...

I'm still an optimist... not an eternal optimist...  scratch that... I'm not an optimist... I'm a realist... and the reality is... a 4 game sweep of the Mets and a 4 game losing streak for the Brewers could happen... I doubt it will... but it could.  And if that did by some chance happen... we could be 4 1/2 games behind the Brewers. 

So basically what I'm saying is...  just because it's more than likely not going to happen.  Don't give up on the team.  Until the day comes(and it's coming....) that we're mathematically eliminated... Don't give up!
