Game 156 Recap: Reds 4, Brewers 2

The Brewers blew a bunch of opportunities on offense and couldn’t make up for it pitching-wise; as the result, they lost their final home game — and final home series — of 2016, to the worst team in the National League. Yeah, that encapsulates 2016 pretty well. Best Play: Don’t say the Brew Crew didn’t put up a fight, […]

Age in the Minors: Pacific Coast

Not unlike some of his highly-ranked, organizational teammates in Biloxi, Orlando Arcia received cool notes from the press in 2016. Throughout the season, fans and writers alike consistently pointed to Arcia’s Colorado Springs batting line as a sign that the shortstop should not be rushed, that perhaps 2016 was not indeed his year for the […]

And yet, a total of 2,542,558 […]

Age-31: A Singular Season

The Brewers announced that they would shut down RHP Junior Guerra for the year. Yesterday, BPMilwaukee’s Jack Moore covered Guerra’s pitching profile and rookie season.

Game 150 Recap: Brewers 3, Cubs 1

In a sentence that I still can’t comprehend, Wily Peralta went toe-to-toe with a Cy Young contender to help the Brewers win the series against the Cubs. Worst Play: Thanks to two second-inning singles — one of them off the bat of Peralta — the Brewers held a 2-0 advantage heading to the bottom of […]
