Willy Adames Calls Out Brewers' Offense Amid Recent Struggles
There was a point in the 2022 MLB season when the Milwaukee Brewers looked poised to win the NL Central. However, the Brewers just lost two of three contests to the rival St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend, resulting in the Cards taking the division lead by two games.
The Brewers' offensive inconsistencies have resulted in their latest skid. It's gotten to the point where Milwaukee shortstop Willy Adames has called out his club's offense following a 4-0 loss to the LA Dodgers on Monday, saying they "haven’t been executing when we need to."

Adames highlighted that this is the worst time in the year for the Brewers' offense to disappear. He said that the entire team must "do our best" with the postseason on the way. Nevertheless, the veteran infielder has faith that the Brew Crew can turn things around.

The Brewers have averaged just 1.75 runs scored over their last four outings as their opponents have outscored them by a total of 15-7 over that stretch. It doesn't help that the Brewers have racked up 36 strikeouts in those games while slashing a putrid .169/.199/.285 as a team.
Tyrone Taylor is the only Brewer that's batted above .250 (.300) over the last four games. Key players like Andrew McCutchen and Kolten Wong are even batting below the Mendoza Line while Christian Yelich has been hitless in his last 14 at-bats.
Unfortunately, relief isn't exactly on the way. The Brewers own the 14th-hardest remaining schedule, according to Tankathon, with series remaining against teams like the Dodgers and both New York-based clubs. In other words, things could get even worse if a solution isn't found.
Brewers Playoff Odds
If the Brewers can't find their offense sooner than later or else any playoff aspirations could be in jeopardy. Having said that, FanDuel Sportsbook thinks that the team can still turn things around, favoring them at -120 to qualify for the 2022 MLB postseason.
