Series Preview: Cardinals @ Brewers

Forget the Cardinals, Brewers fans need a pep-talk! So, this series actually features an intriguing set of pitching match-ups. Yovani Gallardo arguably has an even match with Joe Kelly returning from the disabled list, Jimmy Nelson takes over Marco Estrada‘s ace-slaying role, and two up-and-coming… [More]

Series Preview: Phillies @ Brewers

It seems like so long ago already, but I wrote my first series preview when the Brewers headed to Philadelphia during their first roadtrip. In that preview, I noted the similar trajectories between the Phillies and Brewers organizations, which looks shocking in hindsight: the Brewers… [More]

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: Rockies @ Brewers

2014: Nationals (74 G): 300 RS / 260 RA Brewers (77 G): 351 RS / 314 RA While fighting through a seemingly continuous set of injuries to positional players, the Nationals derived full value from their pitching staff. Even if one wants to dismiss their… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Rockies

One must admit, the Brewers head to Coors Field under the best possible circumstances: our beloved Milwaukee Nine have been fantastic on the road recently, winning three of four at Arizona and going 5-3 on their recent trip through Minneapolis, New York, and Pittsburgh. Certainly,… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Diamondbacks

Earlier this season, the Brewers faced the Diamondbacks amidst a storm of roster moves, injury issues, and shorthanded contests. Now, the Milwaukee club is rather hot, despite a series loss to Cincinnati — the Brewers are now 5-1-1 during their series following their four-game series… [More]

Series Preview: Reds @ Brewers

2014: Reds (65 G): 225 RS / 242 RA Brewers (67 G): 287 RS / 261 RA The Reds simply have not been able to jumpstart their offense in 2014. Granted, the club has weathered injuries to key bats, and otherwise, several regulars are not… [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]
