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.
