Right now, the Brewer car is running on its rims and they are about to fall off.  I think, so far on this 1-5 road trip, they are 3-35 with runners in scoring position.  Today was a classic example of the difference between the Cubs and the Brewers right now.  The Cubs figured out that with the wind blowing straight in, sitting back and going for the downs wasn't a great philosophy and just putting the ball in play was a great idea.  I mean, Rizzo has 4 hits to left field.  He never really unloaded a swing, but rather just went with the pitch. He wasn't the only Cub to just settle for a base hit.  The continued over reliance on the long ball has hurt this team on the trip so far.  Can't play for the 3 run HR every game.  

Houser once again struggles to get through 5, Jeffress and Claudio continue to give up runs, and the team has another lackluster performance.  Now, it is going to be interesting to see how CC handles Grisham at the top of the lineup.  3 solid hits and a HR into the Wrigley wind.  With Cain struggling so bad, does CC roll with Grisham for the next couple of games and see what happens??  I would, but who knows what he will do at this point.  The issue is where does he play??  Cain is going to play CF almost everyday, so then Braun has to sit.  That won't go well.  

Going into PItt is going to almost be a breaking point if the Crew ends up losing 2 of 3.  Home for 3 with the Rangers and 2 with the Twins, follow but then off to Washington for 3 and St. Louis for 3.  This team needs to get 2 of 3 in Pitt and then 4 of 5 at home.
