Jonathan Lucroy says the Brewers are better than the Cardinals

Here’s Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy after yesterday’s defeat to the Cardinals, which dropped Milwaukee five games back of the Cardinals in the NL Central:

“They always play us good but I still believe we’re better than they are. I do. All around, player for player matchups, I believe we are [better].”

Objection! Assumes facts not in evidence!

The Cardinals have taken 10 of 16 head-to-head against Milwaukee this year. They were up two and a half games on the Cards on the first of August and since then they’ve lost seven and a half games of ground, dropping four of six head-to-head. If Milwaukee is better, they got a funny way of showing it.

In other news, Danny Espinosa is not impressed with Lucroy stealing his bit.
