Milwaukee Brewers: Jhoulys Chacin is the Real Deal

In what has been an up and down year for the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation, the most consistent player by far has been Jhoulys Chacin. When he takes the mound the Brewers have a 19-8 record and, as of late, two of those wins have been crucial to the Brewers season. Through 27 starts in the […] Milwaukee Brewers: Jhoulys Chacin is the Real Deal - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Cards fall just short against Brewers, lose series finale

If it was Sunday afternoon and Jhoulys Chacin was facing the scalding-hot Cardinals for the Milwaukee Brewers, oddsmakers would post the Cardinals as prohibitive favorites, at worst, and might even take the game off the board.

Milwaukee Brewers: Do they plan to deal Jonathan Schoop?

The addition of Jonathan Schoop to the Milwaukee Brewers hasn’t gone as smoothly as anyone hoped. Schoop owns a .163/.180/.204 slash line in 50 plate appearances for the Brewers. Could he get deal in the off season? A report from longtime Baltimore Orioles reporter, Roch Kubatko, that the Milwaukee Brewers could look to flip Jonathan […] Milwaukee Brewers: Do they plan to deal Jonathan Schoop? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Milwaukee Brewers: Why their plan is for the long-term

When the Milwaukee Brewers came within one game of October baseball in 2017 fans had every right to be optimistic going into 2018. With the additions of Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain, there was a good reason to feel positive about their direction. Should fans take a more long-term view of the team?

Craig Counsell says Josh Hader’s early usage was unsustainable

Craig Counsell says Josh Hader’s early usage was unsustainable

Brewers manager Craig Counsell says he doesn’t think Hader would have held up throwing 100 innings, hints at getting him into more games The way Craig Counsell is using Josh Hader in the second half of the using -- or perhaps more accurately, not using him -- is becoming a pretty significant side storyline as the Brewers have stumbled in the past couple weeks. Those questions have only grown louder as Counsell has opted to use lesser quality relievers in games where the Brewers have trailed by small margins, only to see those pitchers give up more runs to put games out of reach, including...

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 21 in Review

Well, dang. Worser and worser. The Milwaukee Brewers stumbled through another bad week, going 1-4 and dropping their disastrous August record to 5-15. They have fallen 4.5 games behind the Cubs, and into third place a half game back of the Cardinals. Oh, and they are now out of the Wild Card standings if the season ended last night. The season didn’t end last night; there are still 37 games to play, so a recovery isn’t even remotely impossible. Until you look at how incredibly bad the Brewers’ pitching has been lately. I don’t want to, but if you would like to look, please check...

BCB Mailbag 51: Bullpen blues

Answering the burning questions from you, the reader. Ugh. Spaul149 asks: What is the biggest area of concern down the stretch for you, defense, SP, RP, or offense? The Brewers were one of the best teams in baseball during the first half of the season thanks in large part to the strength of their relief pitching. But that group has seemingly collapsed in the month of August. Only the Orioles’ bullpen has a worse ERA (8.42) than Milwaukee (7.69) this month, and only the relievers for the O’s and the White Sox are walking more batters than the Brew Crew (4.47 BB/9). No bullpen in baseball...

Then, in the bottom of the inning, Wade Miley threw behind Tyler O’Neill, leading to both benches being warned. Craig Counsell was enraged by this and argued with the umpires, promptly leading...
