Heading into the second half of June, the surprising Milwaukee Brewers are still leading the National League Central Division. Whether they remain there the rest of way is debatable, but it seems clear the club’s marketing department is getting creative in their attempts to draw attention to the Brewers’ all-star candidates.
This time around, the video subject is building the all-star case for catcher Jonathan Lucroy while trying to take down St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina in the process. Oddly, the only point made in support of Lucroy’s abilities and candidacy is that he is not Molina.
That is for sure.
The Cardinals’ five-time all-star is considered by most to be both the best backstop in the National League and in Major League Baseball for a very good reason.
It will take far more than a marketing video to alter that reality.
