The Milwaukee Brewers were the hottest team in all of baseball not too long ago, but now the Crew is struggling to stay on track.
They recently fell out of first place in a division where the six teams are separated by a total of six games. That means a streak by someone here, or a streak by someone there and a mass shuffle occurs.
Milwaukee lost second baseman Rickie Weeks for the rest of the year a month ago, and somehow the offense has also lot its consistency.
I'm not hitting the panic button just yet, but I'm still trying to figure out how a team goes from getting swept by the Rockies at home, to sweeping the Indians on the road, to getting swept yet again, this time by the Tigers.
With any ball club, questions begin to swirl as the All Star break nears, and I think that the Brewers have plenty of questions that need answering.
These questions need to have solutions rather quickly if Milwaukee plans on making back-to-back playoff appearances.
