The Milwaukee Brewers are unquestionably more talented than the Arizona Diamondbacks. Though the 2010 San Francisco Giants won a World Series over more star-laden teams, Arizona doesn't have that sort of pitching.

Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun are in the midst of an incredible run and the tandem will look to build on their seasons with dominant post-season play.

Fielder has cranked out 38 homers and still managed to keep a .299 batting average. Braun has a .332 batting average and has gone yard 33 times. Both of them have over 110 RBIs.

The Diamondbacks can't keep them in check throughout this series. Both of them are difference makers and with the big stage will come big performances for both of them. Fielder's future is uncertain and he's looking to leave Milwaukee with a bang.

The move to bring in Zach Greinke is going to pay dividends in the postseason. With a guy that feared on the mound and the superstars in their lineup, the Brewers are going to have no trouble blowing right by the Diamondbacks.

That isn't to say that the Diamondbacks don't have talent. Their up-and-coming squad proved their worth by making it this far. Justin Upton leads a group of talented players who have thrived being under the radar. He brings a .289 average with 31 home runs, 88 RBI and 21 stolen bases into Milwaukee on Saturday evening.

Even so, they don't have enough talent to keep up with the guys in the other dugout. People love an underdog and many want to see the Diamondbacks compete, they just don't have the firepower in their lineup to make that happen.

The Diamondbacks are going to put up a fight, but in the end the Brewers' stars will step up and take hold of this series.
