MILWAUKEE (AP) — When it comes to star power, even the Arizona Diamondbacks acknowledge they’re no match for the Milwaukee Brewers.
Milwaukee has a pair of MVP candidates in Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder, and pulled the surprise of the offseason when they traded for standout starter Zack Greinke. The Diamondbacks’ biggest star is Justin Upton — and even he feels like he and his teammates get lost in the shuffle.
The Diamondbacks might not have the Brewers’ marquee names. But the numbers show two teams that are surprisingly similar going into Saturday’s Game 1 of the NL division series.
And if fans don’t know the Diamondbacks’ players, Braun says they will soon enough.
