NOW: Brewers fans disappointed following post-season sweep, elimination

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- After 92 regular season wins and an NL Central title, 18 innings of playoff baseball where all Brewers fans had the chance to experience after the team was swept by the Diamondbacks at American Family Field in the Wild Card Series.

The Crew jumped out to an early lead in both games, but couldn't keep the momentum, scoring just 5 runs in two games.

At the iHeart Radio studios in Greenfield, hosts Billy Schmid, Armen Saryan and Packer Super Bowl champion John Kuhn spent the morning on 97.3 The Game's Nine 2 Noon show sharing X posts, texts and frustrations of viewers with the audience.

"I want that moment with my boys, watching the Brewers win a playoff series and maybe one day, get to the World Series," one fan wrote.

"This team needed more punch," said Saryan. "Especially during playoffs time; homeruns play in playoffs," added host and producer Armen Saryan.

The Brewers have lost nine of their last ten playoff games, averaging 1.7 runs a game in that stretch. For Brian Jones, the lack of offensive power during the playoff series against Arizona was shocking.

"I liked the way we were looking," Jones said, referencing the team's successful regular season. "I'm as stunned as everybody else. Two-and-out at home."

For Walter Sabella, he says that the team making the playoffs the last five of six seasons is nice, but it's time to get over the hump.

"I think it's time we get to the next level," Sabella said. "Everybody wants to see a World Series."

While discussing the disappointment of the season's end, Schmid and the crew made it a point to share one piece of important perspective with their listeners.

"We made playoff baseball a yearly thing," Schmid said. "For an organization that went 26 years without a playoff berth, five of the last six years still needs to be celebrated."

Opening Day 2024 is set for March 28.
