Luis Urias is a Straight Up Cubs Killer
At the trade deadline, the Milwaukee Brewers traded for Eduardo Escobar. It was a great, great move by David Stearns. But it did mean that it lessened the playing time for Luis Urias. Now, that was an interesting move considering Urias is having a pretty good season. For his age at 23 to find the power stroke and the clutch hitting is something that you can latch on to for a long time. Third base seems like his position, and not shortstop given all the problems with errors and Willy Adames. This man loves to beat up the Cubs. What Urias did against the Cubs this season is amazing with 40 total bases. That is the third-most against the Cubs for a Brewers player. Yesterday helped with five extra-base hits, the first Brewers player to ever do that and only the 16th of all-time.
Most total bases in a season by a Brewer against the Cubs:
1. Christian Yelich- 43 (2019)
1. Richie Sexson- 43 (2002)
3. Ryan Braun- 42 (2012)
4. Luis Urias- 40 (2021)
Brewers have three more games against the Cubs this year.

Milwaukee still has three more games against the Cubs which means that Urias could break the record with one good night at the plate. This is what pure domination looks like, and you wonder if Urias will push for even more starting time. Personally, I think he will get time when there is a long break between days off. You can put him at third, shortstop, or second base and give someone a breather. That’s a good way to keep everyone well-rested for the playoff run.
