Heat Index: Brewers playoffs


Usually, the OnMilwaukee.com Heat Index series covers a range of topics. But given the post-season run the Brewers are on right now, this Heat Index is all Brew Crew.

Ryan Braun, not surprisingly, is lighting it up, while Jerry Hairston, a late-season pickup, is playing extremely well. The super-talented but injured Rickie Weeks is scuffling, while everyone is talking about a fan called "Front Row Amy."

Love or hate "Beast Mode," this is a Brewers' season like no other.

Who and what are hot – and who's not? There's plenty to go around the horn right now, isn't there?

Add your own ideas using the Talkbacks below.







Sizzling:
Ryan Braun – Batting over .500 {#emotions_dlg.arrowup}
Jerry Hairston – What a pick-up!
Nyjer Morgan – Tony Plush is Tony Clutch where it counts
Doug Melvin – What a team he put together
Ron Roenicke - Rookie manager of the year!
Mark Attanasio – The owner who made it all possible



Hot:
Brewers fans – Home-field advantage rules!
Yovani Gallardo – Pitching like an ace
Prince Fielderhitting homers that count! {#emotions_dlg.arrowup}
New logo – Love the ball and glove, but time to honor the team of today
K-Rod – Set-up man extraordinaire
Front Row Amy – Distracting opposing pitchers? {#emotions_dlg.arrowup}


Warm:
Zack Greinke – Pitching barely well enough to win {#emotions_dlg.arrowdown}
Jonathon Lucroy – Using the force, Luke
Yuniesky Betancourt – Taking pitches?!?
Carlos Gomez – Playing his butt off
Beast Mode – Cocky and overused, but a little swagger is OK


Cool:
Closed roof on warm daysThe roof can open and close; let's use it
Rally towels – Fun, but don't distract our pitchers, please



Cold:
Talking about Fielder leaving – this conversation can wait {#emotions_dlg.arrowdown}
Rickie Weeks – too good to be hitting this badly
Randy Wolf and Shawn Marcum – NLDS yikes
Casey McGehee
– pack your bags


Sub-zero:
Tony La Russa plunking Prince – Bush league
Making World Series plans – one game at a time, fans
Road play – Horrible (so far)
