Share Button

  The other rebuilding club in the NL Central is quite a bit further along than the Reds.  Make no mistake, the Brewers will not be contenders this season.  But they’re going to be a tough opponent as they continue to build their suddenly deep farm system and call up Continue reading 2017 Division Preview: 4th Place Milwaukee Brewers

Share Button

  Last year at this time, the Brewers were entering the season with some optimism that their extended run in 1st place in 2014 could be carried into a full season run in 2015.  Those hopes were given a quick and bloody death, as the Brewers fell out of the Continue reading 2016 Division Preview: 4th Place Milwaukee Brewers

NL Central Preview: 4th Place Milwaukee Brewers

Manager: Ron Roenicke Projected Record: 78-84 It was tempting to copy and paste last year’s preview on this page with updates to the roster and call it a day.  The Brewers are still a team with some obvious strengths, some not so obvious weaknesses, and some things that need to break Continue reading NL Central Preview: 4th Place Milwaukee Brewers

2014 NL Central Preview: 4th Place – Milwaukee Brewers

Share Button

The Brewers are interesting.  They are a team who, much like the 2011 Cubs, thinks they can compete this season for a playoff spot.  They’re delusional.  They are better than they were last season, but they are not better than the Cardinals, Reds, or Pirates in the division.  They have Continue reading 2014 NL Central Preview: 4th Place – Milwaukee Brewers

The Cubs did lose, but not before Herculean efforts by both teams to end up on the TOOTBLAN ledger for the day. In a rare display of baserunning awesome-plus-stupid, the Brewers’ Jean Segura stole second base successfully against Kevin Gregg and Welington Castillo.  It was an excellent throw by Castillo, Continue reading Fun with Baserunning

There’s Nothing Good On TV

Well, that’s probably not entirely true.  I could watch the Thursday Night Football game, or I could watch any number of sitcoms.  I could have watched some basketball.  Thanks to the idiot NHL there’s no hockey (not that I could watch it regularly anyway since they moved hockey to channels Continue reading There’s Nothing Good On TV

Share Button

  The winter meetings were relatively quiet for the Cubs, much to the chagrin of Cubs fans everywhere.  Part of that is due to the changes in the MLB collective bargaining agreement, and probably the bulk of it is due to the terrible shape the franchise is in, so trades Continue reading Some things to think about as we head into 2012
