The Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers start a three game series tonight. If the Cardinals want any hope of getting back in the division race, they must sweep the next six games in hopes of getting the Brewers lead down to a handful with what would be just over 20 games to play. That in itself would be a tall task.

I’m joined by Justin Hall who works for the Score out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. We both interview each other, for his show The Homestretch, and for my Pressbox Podcast.

We talk about the differences between in season acquisitions between the two teams. Free agent first basemen and the outlook for the rest of this season and 2012 for both NL Central teams.
