Milwaukee Brewers: Increased plate discipline paying off

The Milwaukee Brewers offense has scored seven or more runs five times in September. Increased plate discipline is likely a factor. In April and May, the Brewers offense was rolling.  The Milwaukee Brewers scored 135 runs each in 26 and 27 games respectively.  However, the bats cooled as summer heated up.  In August, the Crew […] Milwaukee Brewers: Increased plate discipline paying off - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Do the Brewers Need a Star?

Starting with the position that the Brewers’ rebuild is over, let’s also posit that contending for a playoff spot, as Milwaukee is currently, isn’t the end game for the franchise. Consistently competing, year in and year out is the goal; not for a one-game or even five-game playoff series every year, but because making the […]

Career Year: Curves, Cutters, Soft Contact, Pop-Ups

In a season chock full of feel-good stories, the Milwaukee Brewer’s most pleasing development may be the emergence of soon-to-be thirty-year-old Chase Anderson. After posting a 4.26 earned run average in 418 2/3 innings over his first three full seasons in the big leagues, the veteran right-hander ranks seventh in baseball among those with at […]

Milwaukee Brewers: The first rounder that could have been

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson did a great job keeping the pithing staff afloat this year. Then he got hurt. That is something that Milwaukee Brewers fans have heard over and over again. Nelson joined the club as a second round selection back in 2010. He worked to become a regular arm in the rotation. To the point where […] Milwaukee Brewers: The first rounder that could have been - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

How Real is Travis Shaw’s “Breakout”?

Travis Shaw has undoubtedly had a better season this year than last.  In roughly the same number of plate appearances (562 thus far in 2017, compared with 530 last season), he has a TAv nearly fifty points higher and has more than doubled his WARP.  Entering the weekend against Miami, his .292 TAv ranked fifty-first […]

Deconstructing the Pirates

With the Brewers embracing a systematic rebuild following the 2014 and 2015 collapse, it is worth scrutinizing other building cycles around the MLB. As the Brewers play in Pittsburgh, the Pirates are winding down their second disappointing season following their 2013-2015 contending run. Pittsburgh fully rebuilt their baseball operations, analytics, and player development system under […]

Milwaukee Brewers: Evaluating Brandon Woodruff

Brandon Woodruff is proving to be a very successful pitcher since arriving to the Milwaukee Brewers. Through his first six professional games, Woodruff boasts an ERA of 3.28.
