The most unusual Major League Baseball season in history is about to begin.
For the Milwaukee Brewers and 29 other teams, it’s like every team played the first 102 games and ended up 51-51, and every team gets 60 games to decide their fate.
“Everything’s up for grabs right now. We’re all locked in, ready to go…and hopefully go out there and get it done,” said Lorenzo Cain to WTMJ’s Steve Scaffidi.
The short season means every game means about three times as much as the norm in a 162-game schedule.
“You’ve got to go out there, especially with a 60-game season, lay it all on the line. Everyone’s going to go out there, make plays, push their body to the limit,” Cain explained.
But Cain believes that it’s not worth changing the approach the team has used in getting to two consecutive postseasons.
“I don’t think you change anything. Our play style, the way we go about our business is staying consistent. You have to be a little more consistent because of the shorter season,” Cain said.
But the key for the Brewers? Getting W’s on the board quickly.
“That’s the main goal, getting off to a hot start.”
