The Milwaukee Brewers’ 40-man roster currently stands at 39. We are very early into the free agency process, and the team should be adding a few players and making a few trades. The new man in charge, Matt Arnold, will be looking to make an impression in his new role after David Stearns stepped down to an advisory role. Would adding a player like Trey Mancini truly move the needle? The Brewers added four players to the active roster this week. Pitchers Abner Uribe and Cam Robinson, along with infielders Brice Turang and Jon Singleton. Turang should be able to…

The 2022 Milwaukee Brewers season is over. Even though there are two games left to play, the Brewers have been officially eliminated from playoff contention. Milwaukee came back and won in extra innings Monday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was unfortunately too little and too late. The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Houston Astros, and cemented their first playoff appearance since 2011. For the Brewers, this is the first time in five seasons that they will not make the playoffs. It is also the first time Christian Yelich has not made the playoffs since joining the Brewers. Christian Yelich Post-Game…

Brewers world series, brewers gm

I’ve always tried to be a positive voice for the Milwaukee Brewers. When opening my social media or talking with family and friends, I must combat negativity. The fans have seemed way too pessimistic and angry for Milwaukee having a good baseball team the past five seasons. But this year’s trade deadline broke me. The front office and GM of the Milwaukee Brewers are no longer trying to win a World Series. Josh Hader said it all during his interview as a San Diego Padre. It appears even the Brewers players know they aren’t serious. https://twitter.com/MkeBrewMike/status/1554656313485021184 Am I reading too…

It’s becoming very clear that David Stearns helped craft another masterclass trade with the Boston Red Sox. Not only did the Brewers leave Boston with a series win, but Hunter Renfroe is showing exactly what he can bring to this Milwaukee Brewers team. If it wasn’t for his two injury stints this year, Renfroe would be getting a lot more attention. The Brewers are 7-2 since the All-Star break, and the 30-year-old outfielder is a big reason why. It was just before the MLB lockout when Hunter was sent to the Brewers. As December 2021 started, the Brewers had a…

MLB Trade Deadline

After Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, it was safer if you were not around Brewers fans or on social media sites. There was lots of anger, and a lot of it pointed at manager Craig Counsell. But I wonder if the Sunday, July 10th game was Counsell’s way of saying that this current Milwaukee roster needs help. Fans have every right to be frustrated. We are a week until the All-Star Break, and the team just had a really good shot at starting to run away with the NL Central. The Cardinals went on a 2-8 stretch. But the…

Losing games is frustrating. Losing close games in extra innings is even more frustrating. But it’s May, and we haven’t even played two complete months of baseball yet. Brewers fans need to relax. Milwaukee lost to the San Diego Padres in extra innings for the first game of the series. For some reason, this really set off a bunch of fans on social media. Should we be ignoring these types of people? Of course. But it doesn’t mean they aren’t out there, and it doesn’t stop people from agreeing with them and helping their algorithms. It’s totally ok to have…

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…

Tyrone Taylor Clutch Mothers Day Milwaukee Brewers MLB Miami Marlins scaled 1

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…
