Perhaps this one will go better than the last one. The Cubs lost our first simulated game to the Brewers 5-3 on Thursday. Here are the National League Central standings going into today’s game: As time goes by, we’ll post the standings for the entire NL and AL. Here at BCB, we are going to play simulated games for every game on the Cubs 2020 schedule via MLB The Show 20. This will continue until the actual schedule begins, or we get some clarity on what’s actually going to happen with baseball this year.

Brewers: Five More Optioned, Opening Day Roster Taking Shape

Five more players were optioned down to the minors by the Brewers yesterday according to the MLB transaction log. Do we now have an idea of what a potential Opening Day roster could look like?

Brewers Flashback: The Tenure Of Jim Henderson

Although the start of baseball has been delayed, that doesn’t stop us from taking a little trip down memory lane and remembering some players that maybe were overlooked due to how the Brewers performed that season. The Brewers surely have had their struggles in their bullpen over the years. But, even though there are struggles, […] Brewers Flashback: The Tenure Of Jim Henderson - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Redoing the Dark Ages: An OOTP 21 Series with the Milwaukee Brewers

Redoing the Dark Ages: An OOTP 21 Series with the Milwaukee Brewers

What if the Brewers didn’t go 14 years without a winning season? From 1993 through 2006, the Milwaukee Brewers went 14 consecutive seasons without posting a winning record. The club never finished higher than third place in their division and wound up in the divisional cellar five times. Only two years did they finish fewer than 10 games back of first place; the average finish for the Brewers during this period was more than 23 games shy of the leader. Fans endured five years of 90+ losses, including the 56-106 debacle that was the 2002 season. But what if we had the opportunity to redo...

It wouldn’t be the first time Ron Roenicke “took out” Wily Peralta, should the 10-seed pull off the upset. | Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/ Some unusual, hard-to-analyze contests show up in round 2 of the Hammonds Region. There were blowouts galore in Round 1 of the Hammonds Region, as even a pair of Milwaukee Brewers’ underdogs laid waste to their higher-seeded opponents in route to victory. That could be a sign this region is up for grabs in the “Least Liked Brewers of the Last Decade” tournament. Juan Francisco (9-seed) overpowered 8th-seeded Marco Estrada by way of a 78%-22%....

Milwaukee Brewers option five to the minor leagues

Milwaukee Brewers option five to the minor leagues

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports Wahl, Yardley, Perdomo, Nottingham, and Feyereisen sent down The Milwaukee Brewers’ front office has been busy as Bobby Wahl, Eric Yardley, Angel Perdomo, and Jacob Nottingham were optioned to AAA San Antonio while J.P. Feyereisen was sent to Biloxi. This seems to correspond with what other teams are doing as a large number of players were sent down to the minor leagues or released yesterday (what would have been Opening Day). #Brewers option five more, most to AAA San Antonio - many MLB clubs did similarly, still unclear what implications are other than...

Unlike in the Sheffield Region, not all of the “favorites” took home a victory in the first round of the Gagne Region. The 10-seed, Tyler Cravy, took down 7th-seeded Mark Kotsay with shockingly little resistance (72%-28%). The rest of the region went to the higher seeds in the “Least Liked Brewers of the Last Decade.” Another blowout was a bit of surprise as 8th-seeded Jesus Aguilar took home 73% of the vote over the 9-seed,...

Today was supposed to be Opening Day across Major League Baseball. Life has been turned upside down around the world, however, because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Here in America, almost every major sport has had their season suspended or cancelled. Schools are closed and huge amounts of people are either working from home or not able to work at all as many non-essential businesses have closed their doors to help stop the spread of the virus....

Third-seeded Matt Albers (pictured) has a date with an equally-imposing reliever in the second round. | Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports It was all chalk through the opening round in the Gary Sheffield Region. Not too surprisingly, the opening round of the Sheffield Region went according to script with the 8 highest-seeded Milwaukee Brewers advancing, most with relative ease. Only 7th-seeded Cesar Izturis had to sweat out a (somewhat) close matchup with his equally-light-hitting opponent, Elian Herrera (10 seed). As we move into the second round, we will hopefully see some tighter...
