The horrific month of September 2014 was one Brewers fans were hoping to put behind them and never think about again. Unfortunately, the 2015 Brewers are playing like it’s still September.
In particular, the offense is simply hopeless. The lineup that’s supposedly built for power has amassed a league-worst three home runs, and the team batting average sits at a depressing .223...
Ryan Braun and the Brewers have started off the 2015 season cold.
Here are a few observations for the Milwaukee Brewers (2-5) first week of the 2015 MLB season:

Let's all agree that the Brewers have gotten off to baseball's worst start in 2015. They suffered a 10-0 home loss to the Rockies, during which they were shut down by the mediocre Kyle Kendrick. To add insult to injury - or is it the other way around? - OF Ryan Braun left the game due to soreness in his lower right side. The plan was for Braun to sleep on the injury, and get an MRI...
