The Bullpen Conundrum

The Milwaukee Brewers find themselves all alone in first place more than three weeks into June in a season that appeared at the outset more likely to end with them in the cellar than at the top of the NL Central Division. They boast a… [More]

ESPN Power Rankings Week 23: Could we be getting closer to top 20?

ESPN released their latest power rankings earlier today, and the Brewers made one of their biggest jumps of the year, climbing up all the way to No. 21 — three spots higher than where they were this week. This has me happy. The Brewers have… [More]

Here Comes the Cavalry: Players Set to Return in June

The early parts of the 2016 season were not kind to the Brewers.  In one single Spring Training, they started with a total of seven players on the disabled list.  Among them were numerous vital cogs in the plans:  left-handed reliever Will Smith (right LCL… [More]

Quick Profile: 2016 Arms

Given that the Brewers are gearing up for spring training, as pitchers and catchers are slated to report to camp very soon, now is as good a time as any to look at the prospective 2016 roster once more. To make this exercise easier to… [More]

Wednesday Morning Coffee: Lopez, Instructs, Top 15

The Brewers provided a late night special in San Diego, offering the MLB debut of Jorge Lopez on a (strangely timed?) trip to the west coast. Lopez flashed his fastball into the mid-90s, and equally selected his change and trademark curve to keep the Brewers… [More]

Monday Round ‘Em Up: Tank Standings, Denson, Pitching

Our beloved Milwaukee Brewers swept the Philadelphia Phillies for the season, which would be great news if they were not fighting the Phillies for the top draft pick in 2016. Going 7-0 against the Brotherly Love Nine has surely helped the Brewers jump out of… [More]

Personal List: Brewers Midseason Top 15 Prospects

Throughout the season, I have shifted my focus from the MLB team to the Brewers’ farm system, which is perhaps a necessary consequence of preparing to cover a rebuilding ballclub. The Brewers also had one of the most exciting minor league seasons that they could… [More]

Thursday Round-Up: Draft, Kirby, Nelson, 2014 Trades

Last night, our beloved Milwaukee Nine cast aside their terrible season and performed another evening of solid baseball, dismissing the contending New York Mets once more. Surely, one must cue the “we can’t even beat the lowly Brewers” talk from New York fans and media,… [More]

Jeffress: Fastball & Sinker

Last night, Jeremy Jeffress inherited the only runner of the game. Neal Cotts allowed a single to Kolten Wong before striking out Matt Carpenter, leaving Wong on first when Jeffress entered the ballgame. With one out, the righty immediately went hard after the Cardinals bats,… [More]
