Summary of Previews: Brewers’ First Half

62.5% If there’s a telling statistic about the Brewers’ recent success and struggles, it’s also a straightforward statistic: from June 1 onward, 62.5% of the Brewers’ games required five runs (or more) in order to win. Let that sink in: basically, for every series, the… [More]

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]

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]
