Back at his old stomping grounds in Miami, Brewers superstar and 2018 MVP Christian Yelich saw the door slammed shut on both his campaign to repeat as MVP and Milwaukee's push to the postseason with one unfortunate injury.
With a .329/.429/.671 triple slash, the latter two which lead the NL, Yelich also managed to hit 44 home runs, drive in 97 runs and steal 30 bases, all while leading the bigs with a 178 OPS+.
The Brewers are kidding themselves if they think they can still push for a postseason spot. Their lineup is deep, but losing Yelich is too much to overcome.
They have Josh Hader in the bullpen, but inconsistency before him and flat out disappointing performances from the majority of the starting rotation is a hinderance. They needed Yelich to put the team on his back and carry them to the promised land, and his knee injury makes that impossible.
Fingers crossed that Yelich doesn't need surgery and can suit up in 2020, because the Brewers have no shot without him.
