Personal List: Brewers End-of-Season Top 15 Prospects

While the Milwaukee Brewers failed to accomplish anything of note at the major league level this season, one wouldn’t be far off by saying 2015 was a banner year for the growth of the farm system. The system graduated some nice pieces in Taylor Jungmann,… [More]

30 Farmhands #8: Prospect Narratives

While working on ranking Brewers prospects, a number of difficult and intriguing issues appear. First and foremost, the convergence of lower-minor or Brewers-homegrown prospects that are advancing, and supremely advanced external acquisitions leads to a difficult set of wagers about the system’s value. The Brewers… [More]

GM Gamble: Internal or External?

I have to admit, it’s been tough to write about the Brewers during this “stage of uncertainty” after President & GM Doug Melvin announced that he would be stepping aside. First, there are the looming questions and thoughts about how to approach Melvin’s tenure, but… [More]

Ranking Top Prospects

Once the Brewers experienced that wretched April, fans rather enthusiastically resigned to the fact that the Milwaukee organization would (perhaps, finally) rebuild their MLB roster and farm system.

30 Farmhands #2: The Best of “The Rest”

One of the great aspects of cheering for the Milwaukee Brewers organization in 2014 is that the club arguably had one of their best drafts in GM Doug Melvin‘s tenure (maybe even in a decade). Certainly, Bruce Seid and his staff made a marked change… [More]

Building & Rebuilding #5: Front Office

There is an argument to be made that the Milwaukee Brewers are successfully rebuilding their franchise. Even if some fans are frustrated by the seemingly middle-of-the-road roster results from a perpetual “win-now” strategy, GM Doug Melvin has completely shifted draft and farm ideology within the… [More]

Building & Rebuilding #4: Reserve Control

One wonders whether it was a conscientious strategy of GM Doug Melvin to follow the Brewers’ 2014 collapse with an extremely active first week of the offseason. Whatever the motivations — certainly, at least, to make the team better — Melvin is giving Brewers fans… [More]
