Series Preview: Brewers @ Pirates

To what extent was the Brewers collapse predictable? On August 1, BaseballProspectus adjusted standings included scenarios that projected 84-to-86 wins for our beloved Milwaukee Nine. In the first order of standings — focused on run differentials — the Brewers fared the best, beating out the… [More]

2014: Brewers (150 G): 625 RS / 625 RA Cardinals (150 G): 578 RS / 568 RA The Cardinals offense looks bad considering the full 2014 season, but lately their bats have come around. In the second half, the St. Louis bats have scored nearly… [More]

The Cardinals receive so much praise as a baseball organization that it’s difficult to remember that they actually lost the World Series in 2013. While the St. Louis organization may only be able to hang its hat on an NL Pennant (their second in three… [More]
