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 @ 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]

Can Mike Fiers Keep Cutting up the Competition?

The Brewers needed a strong showing from Mike Fiers on Sunday and they got one. In his fourth start since Matt Garza’s DL stint propelled him into the starting rotation, Fiers pitched seven strong innings. He struck out seven, walked one, and allowed only two… [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]

Should Fiers Stay In The Brewers Rotation?

Despite a very sloppy 5-1 loss to the Clayton Kershaw led Dodgers on Sunday, the Brewers still managed to take two out of three from the Dodgers. Couple that with another two wins over the Giants earlier in the week, and the Brewers had a… [More]

Resource: Fun with FIP, 2011-2013

One of the issues with Wins Above Replacement (WAR) statistics is that they are typically calculated with statistics that are removed from actual runs scored and allowed. This is especially true with pitching WAR in many cases, which are based around pitchers’ Fielding Independent Pitching… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Aoki, Offseason Moves, Starting Rotation

Happy Thursday, fellows Disciples! As I’m sure you’ve all noted by now, there have been some changes undergone here at Disciples of Uecker over the past couple days. One thing that I wanted to keep up was the Twitter mailbag that JP ran regularly during… [More]

2013 Rankings: Replacing Wily Peralta

By the middle of June, Wily Peralta accumulated 80 innings on his right arm, but he also allowed 63 runs in those innings. A couple of good starts at Philadelphia and Miami were offset by an end of May that saw 17 runs allowed over… [More]

Kershaw, Aces, and Rotations

By now, this must be boring to read. For years, I’ve followed Dodgers’ ace Clayton Kershaw‘s ascent against their Hall of Famer, Sandy Koufax. Kershaw’s exceptional pace to become the Dodgers’ best left-hander in history continued in 2013, and if I write so frequently about… [More]
