Monday night before the Brewers matchup against the Reds, I had a chance to sit down with catcher Erik Kratz. After a disappointing roadtrip, many fans are either panicking or doubting this team. Some people believe that that the Brewers are running out gas heading into the final month of the season, despite the fact they are just 3.5 games behind the Cubs heading into the Monday night contest. 

Erik Kratz had no problem responding to the negativity.

"I get the panic...I get it...but we still have more wins than everybody but the Cubs."

Kratz is very confident about their push into September.

"We're a freaking good team, and you know what good teams do? They win games. So if you think we're doing bad now, and you still think we're a good team, stay on and enjoy the ride. We're going to win a lot of games to end the season...This team is about winning the ring."

Kratz addresses further in my exclusive with him including...

- How should fans view this slump?

- How big was their win against the Cardinals?

- Is there an explanation as to why this offense can't find their stride?

- What did he learn from playing with other postseason teams?

Full interview below! And trust me, you'll feel better listening to what he has to say...
