Worst NL Teams, Second Half

Marlins   19-42   .311
Pirates   21-40   .344
Rockies   21-40   .344
Padres    23-36   .390
Reds      29-34   .460

Those five teams are also five of the Brewers’ final six opponents in 2019. The Brewers, out of playoff position at the moment, have to be thinking not just about a wild-card slot but about stealing the NL Central.
