The 2021 National League Divisional Series between the Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves will feature two of our MLBbros.
Jackie Bradley Jr. and Lorenzo Cain will suit up for the Brewers this postseason.
These two brothers have something in common and that’s a World Series title. Now, the two veterans are looking to secure their second title and help bring the first World Series title to Milwaukee.
Both players have a good amount of playoff experience and their leadership this postseason will be key for the Brewers.
MLBros With The Brew Crew
On Friday, October 8th, Cain and Bradley will embark on a journey to help the Brewers defeat the Braves and move on to the next round of the playoffs.
Now the question is, will these two answer the bell when their names are called?
They certainly have done so in the past. Lorenzo Cain is no stranger to playing in the postseason with the Brewers
Cain is in his 12th overall season and his fourth season with the Brewers. During his time in Milwaukee he has become a fan favorite and a respectable veteran on the team.
This season he battled multiple injuries and missed time. But he’s back healthy and ready to make an impact during the postseason.
Cain appeared in the playoffs twice with the Brewers in 2018 and 2019. During the 2018 playoffs he hit .244 in 10 games with four doubles and the next year he hit .250 only appearing in one game.
The Brewers will look to Cain this postseason, whether he’s in the starting lineup or coming off the bench. At the plate Cain can provide power and speed, and in the field he can track down balls with the best of him.
Is World Series In The Cards?
We know that he’s going to come ready to play each and every game during the postseason.
Jackie Bradley Jr. could very well turn things around in the postseason. He’s transformed into a clutch hitter before in the playoffs.
The regular season has been a struggle for Bradley, but the Brewers still believe in the one-time Gold Glove winner.
He’ll have a chance to prove himself in his first postseason in Milwaukee. Don’t focus too much on his numbers in the regular season, Bradley can play and he has had legendary playoff success.
Bringing Big Bop For The Postseason
The last time he was in the postseason, he was a member of the 2018 Boston Red Sox team that won the World Series. He also was named the American League Championship Series MVP.
That postseason he hit .200 with three home runs and 10 RBI. Bradley came up big in clutch situations. He’ll look to do the same this postseason.
Like his teammate Cain, Bradley can cover a lot of ground in the outfield and his defensive abilities can keep the Brewers in ball games
His bat will be a big thing to keep an eye on because he struggled so much during the regular season.
But the playoffs are a different story and a different atmosphere. It’s a good thing that Bradley has that playoff experience and this won’t be new territory for him.
