After 13 games, the Milwaukee Brewers have had good and bad. What are three ups and three downs from the first couple weeks of the season?

It’s still extremely early in the 2018 season, but no team has been more unpredictable than the Milwaukee Brewers. With five of their seven wins coming in their final at-bat, Milwaukee has channeled the 1989 Packers with their cardiac nature.

But despite the excitement the Brewers have generated most nights with their late-game exploits, it hasn’t always been pretty. That’s why there are easily Three Up, and Three Down for this first stretch of the season.

To explain, for the 2018 season, every stretch, essentially every three weeks, we’ll take a look at three things that the Brewers have done well, and three things that they’ve experienced failure at. Since we’re already almost three weeks in it’s time for the first episode of the season.

First up, in the top of the first, the three positives from the start of the season.
