Shohei Ohtani watching an Angels game from the dugout

All baseball fans know who Shohei Ohtani is, and if you’re a baseball fan who doesn’t know who Shohei Ohtani is, you might want to Google it. Arguably the best player in MLB, the reigning MVP is a possible trade candidate for the Los Angeles Angels. Although the Angels are unsure about trading Shohei, now is the best time to do so. The other face of the franchise Mike Trout is out due to a rare back condition with no date set to return anytime soon. The Angels have not made the playoffs since 2014 and the future does not…

With Spring coming to a close and Summer on the horizon, I took it upon myself to check out Christian Yelich so far this season. As we all know, Christian Yelich is the offensive centerpiece of the franchise regardless of his performance. So far, he’s having a worse season than last year, tied for the worst of his career with his 2020 season by advanced metrics. Christian Yelich wasn’t even the best outfielder for the Brewers last season. While his performance has not met expectations this season, he has not been a useless player. Yelich still bats third in the…

Today, Tuesday, June 7th, the Milwaukee Brewers continue their homestand. This time against Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies. Coming into Wisconsin, the Phillies are 25-29 and 3rd in the NL East. They also have just relieved former Manager Joe Giradi of his duties four days ago after high spending and underwhelming results. The Brewers are battling injuries and hoping to have some key players return soon. The Brew Crew is looking to turn things around after dropping a series to the San Diego Padres and Philly looks to keep rolling off a 4 game win streak and sweep of…

Overview In 2021, Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, and Freddy Peralta dominated solidifying themselves as one of the best starting pitcher trio’s in Major League Baseball. They were must-haves in fantasy baseball last season and as a result have been high draft picks in this year’s fantasy drafts. [pickup_prop id=”22996″] So far this season, their first starts have been below expectations. What can we expect for the rest of the season? In this slightly belated preview, I will review fantasy statistics as well as expectations and predictions for the 2022 campaign following three losses to the Chicago Cubs.  Corbin Burnes…

Tuesday evening, the Milwaukee Brewers signed free agent Jose Urena to a minor league deal.  Urena has never been a flashy front of rotation type of pitcher, but he does have an effective sinker.  Now at the age of 30, he may not have much left in the tank after playing for two mediocre teams during his previous years.  Urena made his MLB debut in 2015 with the Miami Marlins before signing with the Detroit Tigers in 2020. When he signed with the Tigers, they intended to try and evolve him into a regular dependable starter. Unfortunately, that plan did…

After 120 years (Excluding the shortened 2020 season), the National League finally will have a designated hitter!  This change had been much anticipated and upon the conclusion of the lockout, the Brewers added Andrew McCutchen.  McCutchen is expected to serve primarily in the DH role. David Stearns says the bulk of Andrew McCutchen’s ABs will come as the DH. They also could use him in corner outfield spots occasionally, but it does not sound like he’ll see much time in CF. — Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) March 16, 2022 McCutchen provides some much-needed pop in the lineup, especially against left-handed hitters. …

After four years in the NL Manager of the Year race, Craig Counsell continued that streak with yet another second-place finish. The third of his tenure. In his seven seasons, Counsell has led the Brewers to four playoff berths and two division wins. Being a former player, it’s hard to imagine anyone else as the current skipper of The Crew. No other open managerial candidates are more qualified for the position. (He was never leaving.) This may surprise you, but Counsell is 35 wins away from setting the franchise record. This record will be broken even if the lockout shortens…

Avi Garcia Brewers Free Agent

Behold the best statistical Milwaukee Brewers outfielder of the 2021 season, Avisail Garcia. Avi kept the team in the swing of things while being a dark horse cornerstone piece of The Crew’s offense this year. A crucial question to ask is if Milwaukee would even be in the playoffs without Avi. However, he did show up in the NLDS vs. Atlanta. He was an all-around great player in the clubhouse and on the field in the regular season. Garcia has not performed this well since his All-Star season in 2017 with the Chicago White Sox. What may surprise you is…

Player Synopsis After a season where Milwaukee secured themselves as a top pitching staff in baseball, Daniel Norris was nothing more than a depth acquisition for Milwaukee at the trade deadline. Acquired from Detroit, Norris was brought in and thought to be an instant relief man in the bullpen. And to assist a playoff push the Brewers made in the fall. However, Hunter Strickland, Aaron Ashby, and Miguel Sanchez all earned valuable time over Norris late this season. It’s also possible he spent too much time trying to find “matches” on Bumble such as my Twitter friend and DieHard Detroit…

Devin Williams throws a pitch for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Oh, man. Devin Williams. Where do I start? He went from being one of the most likable players to “Oh? What’s going on with that guy?” The 2020 NL Rookie of the Year had his best season as a Brewer despite injuries during the regular and postseason. For instance, Williams dealt with an elbow injury in July, a calf injury in late September, and fractured his hand before the playoffs. Additionally, this off-field, heat-of-the-moment poor decision is thought to have affected Milwaukee’s postseason chances. Nevertheless, Williams did play in 58 games last year. Let’s dive into his performance over the…
