Brew Crew graces the cover of SI

Milwaukee's winning ways have brought a slew of national attention to the Crew, the latest being the cover of Sports Illustrated.

The 2011 Milwaukee Brewers have heart — and the heart of their batting order (2-3-4) is featured on the August 29th issue of Sports Illustrated. Nyjer Morgan, Ryan Braun, and Prince Fielder grace the national cover of SI, the first time there has been an all-Brewers cover since 1987. “I think it’s great,” said Braun, Milwaukee’s All-Star left fielder who, along with Fielder, is threatening to become the first Brewer to win MVP since Robin Yount. “It’s great for the Milwaukee Brewers organization, it’s great for the city of Milwaukee. For all three of us, we’re proud to have the opportunity to represent this organization, the city of Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin,” stated Braun. If the Crew continues their success, another cover appearance could be coming soon…

      Cool Rays blog man, it’d be sweet if they could somehow sneak up and grab that wild card! Longoria and Braun are the two best young sluggers in the game, if you ask me. Couldn’t ask for a better guy (either one) to build a franchise around!
