The Continued Costs of Miller Park

The Turn

The Brewers continue to hang around after a strong west coast road trip. After a Tuesday night stinker by Matt Garza, the club split against St. Louis thanks to a getaway win yesterday afternoon.

2017 Brewers Fantasy Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers are not the world’s most interesting team for fantasy baseball purposes. They have two good players and then a lot of interesting young ones, but not a ton in the middle. However, those young players are generally worth monitoring throughout the season, particularly if playing time develops in either the outfield or […]
