"Ten months past that moment, the Brewers are 7-10, and they look every bit of it. The MVP is still around, if starting slowly. The star center fielder, the defensive anchor, has opted not to play through the pandemic any more. Hader is still doing what he does, but he’s pitched just four innings in 17 games, a testament to the Brewers’ lack of important moments thus far."
