Milwaukee Brewers: Hot start thoughts

For the most part I am a very pessimistic fan.  I think that setting expectations low for the teams that I am a fan of allows me to deal with extreme disappointment better (case in point, I predicted that my favorite football team, the Denver Broncos, would get killed in the Super Bowl, so when they did it didn’t feel as bad.) So hopefully you all can understand my tepidness to...
