East Coast Road Trip Misery Loves Company
Since beginning a trip to New York and Philadelphia last Friday, the Brewers have lost 5 of 6 and been outscored 35-28. Their win was a laugher (12-3) against the Mets, and they’ve also been on the wrong end of an ass kicking, 9-1, by the New Yorkies.
The Cubs have lost 4 of 6 with the Phillies and Mets and been outscored 33-28. One of their wins was a laugher (10-1) against the Mets, and they’ve also been on the wrong end of an ass-kicking, 8-1, by the Mets.
The big difference between the Brewers and the Cubs is that when the Brewers set off on their journey, they were 24-10 and 7 games ahead of the second place Cubs. Also, the Brewers have a slugging first baseman with a spasm-free neck.
The Cubs can only dream.
