I consider myself fortunate to have fallen asleep prior to the Brewers meltdown in Colorado last night. Milwaukee led 6-1 in the top of the 8th, and I thought it was a good spot to catch up on some much needed shut-eye after a long holiday weekend. I did think there was an outside chance Colorado could make things interesting, as no lead is safe at Coors Field. However, I had no idea how bad it could be until I opened up Twitter this morning and got to see it unfold on my timeline in retrospect. Lets take a look at some of the Twitter highlights/lowlights from a dark day in the 2022 Milwaukee Brewers season:
Worst Loss of the Season?
The Brewers are just straight up playing bad baseball.
That's probably the worst loss of the season

I have so many regrets in my life. Man, I have made so many mistakes. But staying up for this game tops the list. I'll never recover

Randal Grichuk hits his 2nd home run of the night.
That's a bullpen collapse and situational offensive blunder that we've seen basically all year.
This is who this team is. This is who this team will always be.
Average at best.

Tim Dillard is not pleased that Brandon Woodruff didn't get the eighth inning.

FIRE CRAIG COUNSELL!

Basically Everything That Could Go Wrong, Did:
What a last 3 hours in the Brewers playoff chase.
Brewers blow 6-1 lead to Rockies and lose.
Phillies get a walk-off win.
Padres come back from a 5-1 deficit and get a walk-off win.#Brewers go from likely being 1 game out to 3 games out in a matter of a few hours.

The Brewers are going to play another game today. We do know that much. The beauty of baseball is there’s almost always a game the next day. Last night was an absolute dumpster fire, but it doesn’t have to define the season. 3 games back in the wild card with a month to play is not an impossible task. That said, I wouldn’t get your hopes up. This team’s inconsistencies at the plate have been on display all year. The bullpen hasn’t been the same since the Hader trade (and neither has Hader). These inconsistencies have shown up every time they have a chance to move up the standings, a lot of times against bad teams such as last night. If we get any playoff baseball in Milwaukee this year, I’d consider it a HUGE bonus at this point.
