Throughout the season I’ve been talking about the Brewers. In fact, during our season predictions episode, I was the only one who showed love to Milwaukee. Theres been something special “brewing” (you’re welcome, Ben) up there for quite some time.
With the offseason acquisitions of Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich, the Brew Crew has been poised to make a run. I couldn’t be happier for this to play itself out.
But its still crazy to me that the Cubs are out of the post-season. The Cubs, a team with all of the talent in the world, got off to a really slow start and never really recovered. Their pitching struggled, their hitting stunk, and they played almost as if they had a World Series hangover (credit: Ben) for a second year in a row.
I saw on Twitter last night that the team announced that they would be keeping Joe Maddon. I was shocked about that ever being a question in the first place.
But something was certainly off this year. I can’t really put my finger on what it is, but it was definitely something. Call it “baseball intuition”. But something was did not play well with the 2018 Chicago Cubs.
