Series Preview: Brewers @ Reds

Given that we’re celebrating Independence Day in the USA, it seems criminal that the Brewers and Reds will play Friday evening at 7:00 PM. The late start time is a fitting commentary on baseball’s evolution from outlaw-immigrant-criminal pasttime to professional-entertainment-billionaire industry. Goodness willing some fielder… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Blue Jays

If you had told me in February that the Brewers and Toronto Blue Jays would both be in first place for their July meeting, I would have said, “you’re nuts.” Then, cartwheels abound. Certainly, I thought that the Brewers could produce a solid season if… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Mets

The Brewers just completed their 20th series of the season with a rousing victory over the Pirates at PNC Park. With the chance for a series victory in the balance, the Brewers weathered several late scoring opportunities waged by the Pittsburgh players, ultimately winning 1-0… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Pirates

The Pirates find themselves in a strange position entering June: their batters are producing runs at a solid level, but their pitching is simply not along for the ride. Currently, Pirates pitchers are approximately 22 runs below average entering the series against our Milwaukee Nine…. [More]

Brewers Streak Heads to Minnesota

When the Brewers take the field in Minneapolis tonight, they have one of their 2014 season streaks on the line. If the Brewers lose their second consecutive game, one might call into question their recent, sudden winning surge. If the Brewers win tonight, they have… [More]
