The Brewers are 11-7 when they don't play the Cincinnati Reds; a pace that would win 99 games over a full season. The Reds are 8-11 when they don't play the Brewers; a pace that would win only 68 games over a full season. Yet this morning, the Brewers trail the Reds by 1/2 game in the standings. So far, the only thing separating the Brewers from looking like a championship caliber club and the Reds looking like an also-ran are the games they've played against each other. If the Brewers can't solve this puzzle, in the end neither team will be that.
