Taylor Jungmann’s Fastball

After his excellent debut, Taylor Jungmann earned his first “tough loss” of the season, as Max Scherzer, the Washington Nationals big-contract ace, nearly no-hit the Brewers. Jungmann hardly pitched poorly, however, and managed to get himself out of trouble a couple of times. Unfortunately, the… [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]

Rebuilding Lessons: Cubs & Brewers Preview

In the upcoming series against the Cubs, the Brewers run their trio of organization arms against the Lakeview Nine. It’s hard not to see this series as a potential referendum on our Milwaukee club’s young arms. Wily Peralta (amateur, 2005), Jimmy Nelson (2nd, 2010), and… [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 @ 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]

Pitching Resource: 4 Win Improvement

After judging the rotational depth in the DoU preview series, there is a general sense that the Brewers’ rotation is much improved for 2014. Matt Garza strengthens the club’s rotation by solidifying their top rotation depth, which in turn eases up the back end of… [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]
