MILWAUKEE Next to his locker in the Brewers clubhouse last week, Milwaukee center fielder Nyjer Morgan said what many were thinking when it came to the Brewers' disappointing 18-26 start this season.
It's not early anymore, he admitted. And it's true. With May quickly coming to a close, the Brewers can no longer excuse their slow start by pointing to a calendar.
"We're just waiting for something to click," Morgan said. "Don't know when, that's the most frustrating thing about it. You just don't know when the light switch is going to go on for everybody."
But will that light switch go on in time?
It's almost impossible to tell. As far along as we are in the season, history tells us that there's plenty of time for things to turn around. Last year's Brewers, who fell two games short of the World Series, were just 21-23 at this point in the season. But that team was on the upswing and went on to win more than anyone else in the major leagues in the season's final 118 games.
