I worry that Javier Baez will never be much better than he right now because he rarely walks and is so undisciplined at the plate.


- Things that have been said at the start of every season Baez has played.

Ah, Javy may never be better than a 5+ win MVP candidate? Shame.

For what it's worth, scanning quickly it looks like the Brewers have the same September schedule, with Thursday 8/29 off instead of Monday 8/26. Obviously they are less likely to have rain outs.

Cardinals look to have the 29th, 9th, and the 26th off.
