Collapsing Middle Rotation

While working on the 2015 runs prevented rankings for the National League, I noticed a strange set of trends: The NL featured the lowest number of “full-time” starters since 2009 (only 67 regular starters worked 100+ innings). Only 11 starters prevented between 4 and -4… [More]

Improving Pitching & The Five Man Rotation

In the 2015 National League, six teams produced 800+ inning pitching rotations. ROTATIONS IP / Runs Prevented Core IP / RunPrv Replacement IP / RunPrv 2014 Core; Replacement Cardinals 1003.3 / 112 884 / 104 (!!!) 119.3 / 8 720.7 / 67; 296 / -47… [More]

Gallardo & Estrada 1: Front Office & Coaches

Martin Perez, David Price, Cole Hamels, and Marcus Stroman: these are the four pitchers that former Brewers starters Yovani Gallardo and Marco Estrada have out-pitched during their 2015 American League Divisional Series. The former rotation mates share a playoff series for the first time since… [More]

The Davis / Gennett Connection

As the Brewers introduce their new GM David Stearns, fans will have the opportunity to fully assess the legacy of President & GM Doug Melvin. Recently, the 2009 draft will be one of the thorny issues to untangle, as the regular players emerging from that… [More]

Wily Peralta’s “Down Year”

Entering 2015, one of 18 “super-dependable” (100+ IP / 4+ consecutive seasons) starting pitchers exhibited a true, consistent career arc: Tim Hudson was in the process of redefining his career, or reclaiming it, after his 2008 and 2009 injury-shortened seasons. For the Braves, he prevented… [More]

Tuesday Morning Coffee: SP, Lucroy, Aramis, Trade Season

After scoring at least four runs in 12 of their first 16 games in July, the Brewers offense has gone completely cold. That cold streak extended from Phoenix to San Francisco, as Milwaukee lost to the Giants last night in a 4-to-2 affair. The game… [More]

Taylor Jungmann’s Debut

With another strong start in Arizona — even in a tough loss, Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann catapulted himself into a Top 30 WAR ranking against all other MLB pitchers. Consider this: based on WAR alone, Jungmann is a #1 ranking starter in 2015, having produced… [More]

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]
