Brewers start big stretch tonight

The Milwaukee Brewers start a crucial 9-game stretch tonight when they open a 3-game series against the division leading Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park.  Games against the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds will follow.

If the Brewers play well, the team could look to assist with a couple more pieces to the puzzle, making a second half push for the playoffs.  If they stumble out of the gate, then it might be time to sell.

Teams have already expressed interest in ace pitcher Zack Greinke and a report yesterday says the Los Angeles Dodgers are said to be interested in Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez. 

The Pirates lead the Central Division by 8 games over the Brewers.
