Brewers' playoff chances on the line vs. Royals

Reaching the postseason for the third straight season is on the minds of the Milwaukee Brewers as they open a three-game series against the visiting Kansas City Royals on Friday.

The Brewers (23-26) are part of a logjam of teams competing for the lower end of the National League's eight playoff spots and need to win as many of their final 11 games as possible.

Longtime Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun surveyed the situation -- seven teams are legitimately in play for the last three spots -- and summed up his thoughts in a carefree manner.
