2014 NL SP Rankings: Dependability

In the 2014 National League, only 29 of the 69 regular starting pitchers with 100+ IP were dependable starters. This means that those 29 pitchers worked at least three or more consecutive seasons of 100+ innings. Kyle Lohse and Yovani Gallardo are included in this… [More]

Building & Rebuilding #3: Elite Bullpen

Lately, I’ve been working on arguments that the Brewers need to enhance their starting rotation for 2015. First, given the “middle rotation explosion” in the 2014 NL, one can intuit that the 2015 NL may revert to top-heavy and bottom-heavy pitchers, which places the Brewers’… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Cardinals

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]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Padres

The Padres should look similar to fans of the 2012 and 2013 Brewers. Specifically, San Diego’s squad has encountered one particularly bad month. Otherwise, the team stuck around .500, and lately have shown signs of breaking into the type of hot streak that could make… [More]

Series Preview: Blue Jays @ Brewers

Believe it or not, the Blue Jays and Brewers share exactly the same record since the beginning of July, when both teams opened the month at Rogers Centre. While the Blue Jays are currently experiencing a difficult losing stretch, the Brewers weathered such a set… [More]

Assessing the Jake Peavy Rumors

The Brewers took out quite a bit of frustration on the Cardinals on Sunday afternoon at Miller Park, snapping a seven game losing streak with an 11-2 victory. Starter Wily Peralta cruised through seven rather uneventful innings and recently recalled Elian Hererra had a career day, notching… [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]

Monday Morning Grab Bag

The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Colorado Rockies 6-5 on Sunday, completing a three game sweep and capping off a 6-1 road trip. The game also marked the end of a stretch where the Crew played fifteen of eighteen games away from Miller Park, a run… [More]

Series Preview: Orioles @ Brewers

2014: Orioles (48 G): 203 RS / 209 RA (10-6 one-run games) Brewers (51 G): 199 RS / 187 RA (10-6 one-run games) Looking at the Orioles’ batting order, one would expect the Baltimore bats to rank among the top American League offenses. Yet, due… [More]

Jeff Bianchi outrighted to make room for Jimmy Nelson

Jimmy Nelson will make a spot start for the injured Yovani Gallardo on Sunday, and instead of sending down another pitcher to make room for Nelson, the Brewers outrighted infielder Jeff Bianchi to Triple-A Nashville. Bianchi has 72 hours to decide whether he’ll accept the… [More]
