How the Milwaukee Brewers turned from sizzling to fizzling

So, what the heck happened to the Brewers? There is no easy answer, yet also no reason to talk of this team in past tense. The Crew, for all their recent angst, are 1½ games out in the race for the second National League wild card. They have three games left against the Pirates, the team in current possession of the second spot. And their roster, with the post All-Star break additions...

The Toronto Blue Jays split series

The Toronto Blue Jays opened the 2014 season by splitting their first series with the Tampa Bay Rays last week.
