There once was a time that the Brewers were full of former Royals players, but they’re down to only two in their position player group (Lorenzo Cain and Manny Piña) and just one on the pitching staff (Brad Boxberger). They’re probably better for it, but they’ve just sort of treaded water this season on the backs of some incredible pitching, which I’ll get to in a minute and an offense that seems to have the ability to score a lot, but just hasn’t. They’ve been as many as seven games over .500, last on May 1 and as many as two games under. Since they got to 17-10 on May 1, they’ve gone just 4-10. If that sounds familiar, it’s because the Royals have gone 2-13 since they got to seven games over .500 on May 1. So these two teams are in similar boats, though I think the Brewers have a better chance of getting their way out of it.
