Game 163 Preview: Brewers at Cubs

Welp, here we are at game 163. As frustrated as some of us are, it’s good to remember that this team was somehow both kind of disappointing/had all sorts of crap/injuries/scheduling thrown at it and still won 95 games. It would be nice if, say, the Cubs didn’t get swept by the Reds earlier this year, but the fact that the division ended in a tie probably has more to do with the Brewers in general and Christian Yelich in particular catching fire in the home stretch.
