Despite today’s 10-4 loss to the New York Mets, the Brewers are winners of two straight series and have won 5 out of their last 7 games. Let’s take a look at how that has impacted their playoff odds, courtesy of Coolstandings.
St. Louis has gone 3-3 over this time period. More importantly, Cincinnati has gone 5-2 as well. Simply keeping pace is not enough for Milwaukee. With the hole they’ve dug, they need both to win games and for other teams to start losing. The Brewers play this last week was encouraging, but they’re arguably farther away from a playoff spot than they were seven days ago.
