Power Rankings
Last week I made a comment about the surprisingly terrible season Jonathan Lucroy was having. Since then he's gone 8 for 18 with two doubles and three homers. I guess I should've said something sooner.
Anyone notice the off-year Jonathan Lucroy is having? After hitting .301/.373/.465 with an MLB-best 53 doubles last year -- he started the All-Star Game, remember -- he's hitting .236/.306/.333 this season.
The Brewers snapped a 25-year playoff drought and then went to the postseason again three years later under Doug Melvin. He should be remembered very fondly in Milwaukee.
Two weeks ago I gave them a huge bump and noted that they were playing excellent baseball. Since then they've gone 3-11. Sorry, Milwaukee.
Another victim of the random "Snyder Jinx." Since I mentioned how well they were playing in last week's rankings, they've lost five of seven.
Let me arbitrarily pick June 21, OK? Guess who has the best record in the NL since then? Yes, the Milwaukee Brewers do (17-6), otherwise this would have been a real stupid comment.
Picture the landscape of the franchise at last year's All-Star break compared to this year's. Heartbreaking for Milwaukee fans, for sure.
How about Adam Lind as a trade candidate for teams looking for punch? He's only signed through this season with a club option for next and is hitting .299/.377/.525 with 15 homers and 52 RBI. It's one of the most under-the-radar great seasons in baseball. He kills righties, too.
It was just 10 months ago that they were in first place in the NL Central. Hard to believe, no?
Aramis Ramirez's very good career is coming to an end on an awful team and with the worst statistical season of his career. Hopefully he finds a way to get traded to a contender and goes out playing well and having fun.
