The Brewers are currently tied for first place in the fierce race for the NL Central.
I did not expect them to still be competing at this point of the season, and I take it as a surprise that they have a record of 52-46.
Their offense is led by Prince Fielder, who has 22 home runs and 73 RBI.
Also an asset to their team is Ryan Braun, who is currently hitting .316.
However, the great performance of both of these players was expected.
And because their pitching is not much better than average, their success must be credited to multiple position players stepping up to perform better than expected.
A few names that come to mind are Jonathan Lucroy and Rickie Weeks.
If the Brewers continue to perform as they currently are, they will have a very good chance of making the playoffs, and possibly the World Series.
