The Milwaukee Brewers' season ended on Wednesday with a common theme seen throughout the season—the bullpen blowing a sizable lead.

Milwaukee's failure to reach the playoffs cannot be placed solely on the bullpen, although they definitely deserve the blame. At times, Brewers' bats seemed invisible and the starting pitchers threw batting practice to the opposing team. For much of the season, it wasn't pretty.
