The news of the injured knee cap leading to the end of Brewers slugger Christian Yelich's season was devastating to say the least.
Not only inside the Brewers locker room, but on social media among Brewers Nation and beyond.
Fans and experts took it in different ways. We share some samplings.
From our own team members...
Christian Yelich's broken knee cap bookends a #ThisIsMyCrew season that started with reliever Corey Knebel blowing out in AZ. A lot of good happened in between and still can in the weeks ahead but wow, that they're still in it after all of this sesaon's drama says a lot.— Gene Mueller (@genemueller) September 11, 2019
Oh Baby.The Brewers..they are Craig Counsell...with half a squad of players known only by their families..doesn't matter..they aren't that good...doesn't matter..they will be there to the end. cuz that's what Counsell's do.— Steve HomerTrue (@espnhomer) September 11, 2019
help me with how depressed to be. I've never of it happening on a ball batted off a hitters leg. https://t.co/yDTRNiUMdU— Steve HomerTrue (@espnhomer) September 11, 2019
It's very easy to explain what the rest of the Brewers have to do now that Yelich is gone for the year. BE BUSTER DOUGLAS.— Steve HomerTrue (@espnhomer) September 11, 2019
...to national writers and pundits...
...to the fans themselves.
Imagine the season and numbers Yelich would be having if it weren't for these weird injuries. The back problems that have kept him out for weeks and then something like this taking him out of games. https://t.co/PmVfvioxRc— Sam Dekker (@dekker) September 10, 2019
Man this sucks ... Yelich deserved MVP— LAO (@Orozco_Louie) September 11, 2019
For us fans, this injury really hurts, but I think it's important that we all send love to our MVP. Nobody feels worse than he does. Here's to a healthy, speedy recovery @ChristianYelich , we love you man— Degenerate Cheesehead (@CheeseheadSZN) September 11, 2019
