The Bankruptcy of Bally Sports News broke Tuesday morning that Amazon and the parent company of Bally Sports, Diamond Sports Group, reached a deal amidst its ongoing bankruptcy case. Bally Sports first gained the rights to the Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) formerly of the Fox Sports Regional networks in May 2019 after regulators forced The Walt Disney Company to sell them off after their merger with 21st Century Fox. The financial hardships faced by Diamond Sports Group are not surprising considering the capital investments required for new studios and infographics, limited number of providers Bally was available on, and the…

Milwaukee Brewers: A Brief 2023 Postseason The Milwaukee Brewers entered the 2023 Postseason as a common “dark horse” pick to win the World Series, such as the prediction from Bob Nightengale. However, despite hosting the Wild Card Series in Milwaukee against the 6-seeded Arizona Diamondbacks, the Brewers were unable to keep the lead they held in either game before being swept out of the 2023 Postseason. This result was rather shocking given the team’s expectations and performance to end the season as the National League Central Division Champions for the third time under Craig Counsell’s tenure and fourth in franchise…

The 2023 Milwaukee Brewers: NL Central Champions With the Milwaukee Brewers winning the National League Central title by 9 games with a 92-70 record, the Brewers secured the 3 seed in the NL portion of the postseason bracket. That means they will host the 6 seed Arizona Diamondbacks in Milwaukee for a best-of-three series. The winner will travel to Los Angeles for a best-of-five series against the Dodgers. Considering the 26-player limit for MLB Postseason rosters and the general 13-pitcher maximum, the roster Craig Counsell has put together for the Wild Card Series (which can be different from later rounds…

Milwaukee Brewers rookie infielder Andruw Monasterio

Andruw Monasterio: Welcome to the Big Leagues Andruw Monasterio got his first call up to the MLB level on May 27 after Brewers shortstop Willy Adames suffered a concussion from a scary foul ball into the dugout.

In his 66 games played as of the time of writing, Monasterio has added 7 steals in 8 attempts to the impressive big league debut. He has been a defensive utility man, playing primarily at 3B and 2B.

Enter Abner Uribe Milwaukee Brewers RHP Abner Uribe is most known for his incredibly high velocity, frequently breaking 100 miles per hour on the radar gun. What is perhaps more impressive is featuring 100+ mph on not just his four-seam fastballs, but also on his sinker. Uribe is the Milwaukee Brewers number 21 prospect in the system, and was first promoted to the main roster on July 7th.

Entering Monday, July 17th following a series sweep against the Cincinnati Reds (comprised of a historic 1-0 victory on Friday night, a third straight shutout victory on Saturday, winning 3-0, and a gritty 4-3 win on Sunday), the Milwaukee Brewers now find themselves with a two game lead in the NL Central over the Reds and hold tiebreak having won the season series with three yet to play before the trade deadline. With the Brewers being right in the mix for a division title and at the same mark as the wild card teams, they will likely remain in contention…

The Economics of Baseball It is well understood that the revenue structure of Major League Baseball leads to competitive inequity. For smaller market teams, the lack of funding from an owner or a small TV deal makes everything in the team building process harder. Signing top free agents and extensions to currently rostered players alike becomes far more difficult for a team with limited financial resources, as compared to one of the mega markets of Los Angeles or New York. And while the MLB remains the only of the “Core Four” sports leagues without adopting revenue sharing (see: the NFL,…

Entering play on June 2nd, the Milwaukee Brewers possess a slim half game lead on the division. This comes despite an uninspiring 29-27 record, just two series victories since the start of May, and a -26 run differential. The Brewers have seemingly stayed atop the NL Central for most of the season thus far, which begs the questions as to how they’ve managed this feat, and whether it’s sustainable. How They’ve Performed Offensively, the Brewers rate as one of the worst teams in baseball. Entering play on June 2nd, they rank 29th in total hits (418), 27th in average (.230),…
