Series Preview: Blue Jays @ Brewers

Believe it or not, the Blue Jays and Brewers share exactly the same record since the beginning of July, when both teams opened the month at Rogers Centre. While the Blue Jays are currently experiencing a difficult losing stretch, the Brewers weathered such a set… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Reds
