The Milwaukee Brewers are in the National League Division Series, which will start up on Thursday at Miller Park. While they have advanced, their opponent is yet to be determined. It will be either the Colorado Rockies or Chicago Cubs, who are matching up this evening in the Wild Card Game. The Brewers are 9-11 against the Cubs this season, while they are 5-2 against the Rockies. However, the Cubs are 6-5 in their last 11 games overall (including the tiebreaker), while the Rockies are 9-2. Who do you want the Brewers to face in the NLDS? Who will come out on top? It’s time to find out.
