The Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies series finale on Sunday Night Baseball was a clear example of a major change that needs to happen in Major League Baseball. Angel Hernandez should no longer be an umpire. It started almost right away. Omar Narvaez got called out on a high strike to end the top of the second inning. Then Alec Bohm was called on a high strike to end the second. In the third, the same thing happened again with Andrew McCutchen. https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1518377759030001665 The strike zone would continue to stretch and then get smaller throughout the night. On what was…

It’s never fun to be a Debbie Downer, but there is a good chance that the Milwaukee Brewers will not play their Opening Day game this Thursday. The game is currently set for April 7th at 1:20 CST at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois. Surprisingly, the Brewers and Chicago Cubs have only met two times on Opening Day. Every time has been at Wrigley. The lockout week-long delay in the season means the Brewers technically weren’t supposed to start in Chicago. The original Opening Day was on March 31st at American Family Field against the Arizona Diamondbacks. If you haven’t…

There has been a healthy (and gearing towards unhealthy) discussion among fans and on social media regarding who should start in center field for the Brewers next week. At first glance, it is Lorenzo Cain’s job and has been for basically the past four seasons. But Tyrone Taylor is making a case for a possible upset and surprise start in center on April 7th. The 28-year-old Taylor has grinded and worked his way onto the Brewers roster. The past few seasons, the strategy from Milwaukee was to stack the outfield, which has worked out in their favor. Cain, Ryan Braun,…

While Luis Urias’s injury might be minor, there is a real possibility that he won’t be playing Opening Day on April 7, 2022. Urias suffered a left quad injury, and will be out a minimum of two weeks. The Brewers already have a pretty full roster, and minimal options remain on the third base free agent market. It’s a disappointing blow for Urias and the team. Luis came into the delayed spring training bulked up a bit, and is expected to have a pretty big season. With Urias sidelined, the true remaining third baseman on the Brewers roster is Mike…

If NBA officials continue to not call a Flagrant 2 foul on players who blatantly throw themselves into Giannis Antetokounmpo, it’s going to lead to him being injured. And that wouldn’t just be a giant blow to the Bucks. It would affect the entire NBA. What if one of these fouls result him to be out for the year? Your reigning NBA champions are now without their best player and arguably the best play in the NBA. Flagrant 2 fouls have been trending due to a foul Grayson Allen committed against Alex Caruso of the Chicago Bulls. On January 21st,…

Being in a lockout is stupid! Now with that being said, we still need to look toward the 2022 Brewers season. After a disappointing appearance in the playoffs after clinching the NL Central last season, the Brewers’ plan is to finally take that next step and reach the World Series. They have one of the best rotations in the baseball with six-to-seven serviceable starters. They still have a solid group of bullpen pitchers and young arms with a chance to impress. The offense should take positive steps next season. Players like Christian Yelich and Keston Hiura have a great chance…

The 29-year-old was originally traded to Pittsburgh in the deal that sent Gerrit Cole to the Houston Astros. With Moran being DFA’d, that means every piece the Pirates received back for the star pitcher is now gone. https://twitter.com/DannyVietti/status/1465459487033024516 Colin is a career .267 hitter with 45 home runs, 216 home runs and a career .747 OPS over 460 games.
