It's Time to Start Winning Again
After a 2-8 road trip the Brewers sit in fifth place in the NL Central with a record of 14-20, 5.5 games behind the Cardinals. In order to win the division the Brewers will need to win roughly 72-75 games over their final 128 contests. The rest of May will be important for the Crew. The Brewers are much better than they've shown lately, and they have an opportunity to turn things around this week at home against the Padres and Pirates. They need to position themselves well for a June schedule in which they play series against the Red Sox, Rays, and Yankees. The winning needs to start tonight with Zack Greinke on the mound vs the Padres. It's still early, but as we were reminded in 2010, it's not too early to fall out of the race.
