Monday Morning Coffee: Winning, Garza, Minors, Tanking

Winning On June 26, I compiled my “Week 17” Brewers roster rankings, specifically outlining the issues facing a club that finally returned most of their opening day roster to the big league club. I lamented the fact that the Brewers went 4-9 despite making no… [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]

Friday Round Up: Draft, Tanking, Biogenesis, Comeback Win

Last night, the Brewers’ hopes looked dismal during an error-plagued start by Matt Garza, but the bats answered each of the errant frames with runs against Tanner Roark to tie the ballgame. Newly recalled second-baseman Scooter Gennett supplied the game-winning RBI in the bottom of… [More]

Tyler Cravy: Best Brewers Debut?

Let’s forget the offensive woes for a moment, and praise Tyler Cravy for his exceptional Major League debut.

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]

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]
