Contract tender deadline nears

With teams having to tender contracts to players before December 1st, the Brewers have some interesting decisions to make over the next five days.

Walks Key To Bullpen Struggles

Tied at four apiece in the seventh inning, Wednesday afternoon’s series finale against the Houston Astros slipped into what has been an all-too-familiar script this month: Bullpen Struggles.
