2018 #7 Most Valuable Brewer: Travis Shaw

2018 #7 Most Valuable Brewer: Travis Shaw

Shaw dropped from his top spot in 2017 to number seven Travis Shaw was Brew Crew Ball’s most valuable Brewer in 2017. This season, he’s dropped a few places. Part of this is because he was surrounded by much better players, like Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, and Josh Hader, and part of it was that his performance saw a modest dip. Despite that, there’s no denying that Shaw was an essential Brewer in 2018. Shaw started the season as the everyday third baseman playing exceptional defense. He had nine defensive runs saved and a 2.2 UZR, good enough to make him a finalist for a Gold...

Milwaukee Brewers 2018-19 offseason preview

Milwaukee Brewers 2018-19 offseason preview

Where do they go from here? The Milwaukee Brewers treated their fans to perhaps the most memorable season in a generation in 2018. After narrowly missing out on a playoff berth in 2017, GM David Stearns and company made some aggressive additions during the offseason, adding star-caliber players Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich to the mix as well as making wise bets on Jhoulys Chacin and Wade Miley to supplement the talented core of players that were already in place. The result was a team-record five players named to the All-Star game, tying the franchise-best mark for victories in season...

Milwaukee Brewers: Lorenzo Cain, Manny Pina Snubbed At Gold Gloves

The Milwaukee Brewers had four players nominated for Gold Gloves this year. None of them won. When the Gold Glove finalists were announced, most figured Travis Shaw and Christian Yelich stood little chance of winning. But the Milwaukee Brewers still had two strong candidates in Lorenzo Cain and Manny Pina.

Lorenzo Cain snubbed, Brewers shut out in Gold Glove awards

Despite 4 nominees, the Brewers come away empty-handed The Brewers haven’t had a Gold Glove winner since 2014, and they’ll have to wait at least one more year for their next one. After having four nominees for baseball’s most well-known defensive honor, none of them were able to take home the award. Travis Shaw (predictably) lost the third base award to Nolan Arenado, while Corey Dickerson won the National League’s left fielder award over Christian Yelich and Yadier Molina won at catcher over Manny Pina. But the most surprising result, at least for Brewers fans, was Lorenzo Cain...

2018 #2 Most Valuable Brewer: Lorenzo Cain

2018 #2 Most Valuable Brewer: Lorenzo Cain

The biggest free agent signing in Brewers history returned home and put together a career year at the age of 32 Until Christian Yelich turned into Barry Bonds in the second half, it looked like Lorenzo Cain would end up being this year’s Most Valuable Brewer. The first year of the richest free agent contract in franchise history could not have gone much better. While the counting stats may not have been enough to grab the attention of anyone who didn’t see him play every day -- 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 620 plate appearances doesn’t scream MVP to some of the more old school thinkers...

Four Milwaukee Brewers named as NL Gold Glove finalists

Four Milwaukee Brewers named as NL Gold Glove finalists

The award may not always go to the best defenders, but it’s still a sign the Brewers’ run prevention is getting some national respect The Brewers’ run prevention skills were as big a part of their sudden success in 2018 as anything, and now it looks like that effort is being recognized nationally.
