Lefty

There's been a lot of wondering whether the Brewers should try to acquire a left handed reliever for the stretch run and playoffs.  First, every day that goes by makes the stretch run less and less relevant.   The math for winning the division is way in the Brewers favor right now.  And for the playoffs? - they've already got one - Chris Narveson.  Almost every team's 5th starter goes to the bullpen in the playoffs.  Even with fewer days off in the playoff schedule this year, it's highly unlikely that the Brewers would consider Narveson in a starting role when they could pitch Grienke, Gallardo, Marcum or Wolf on normal rest.  There - problem solved.
