Brewers: As Expected, Devin Williams Named NL Reliever of the Year

It’s official. Make it three straight seasons that a Milwaukee Brewers reliever took home the NL Reliever of the Year award. As MLB’s 2020 Spring Training was beginning to wind down, there was a relatively good chance that Brewers rookie reliever Devin Williams would start his season in the minors. That’s what makes his most […] Brewers: As Expected, Devin Williams Named NL Reliever of the Year - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/ The Brewers have had the best reliever in the game for three years in a row Devin Williams was one of the biggest breakout stars in this year’s shortened MLB season, and while we have to wait to see if he’ll be in the running for this year’s Rookie of the Year award, he’ll be taking home at least one piece of hardware.

Brewers: No Universal DH Would Mean Two Tough Decisions for Crew

If MLB decides not to keep the designated hitter in the National League for 2021, the Brewers may have harder decisions to make on two of their players.

But before they do so, the team […] Brewers: No Universal DH Would Mean Two Tough Decisions for Crew - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Brewers Once Almost Traded For Mookie Betts?

Imagine both Mookie Betts and Christian Yelich in the same outfield. The Brewers almost made that happen. Sometimes it’s fun to look at hypotheticals and ‘what if’s’ from baseball seasons past. Sometimes it’s painful to see how close your team was to completely changing the direction of the franchise.

Once upon a time, Mookie Betts could have been a Brewer

Photo by Harry How/ File this near the top of the “trades that never were” file We’ve heard for years about how The Brewers Almost Drafted Mike Trout (he was taken one pick before them! So close!). Now we have a story that might join that one in Brewers what-if lore. Apparently, the Brewers nearly traded for Mookie Betts, back before he was The Best Non-Trout Player in Baseball. Admittedly, saying “nearly” might be a stretch, but Doug Melvin apparently did ask for him in a possible deal for Francisco Rodriguez in 2013. Adam McCalvy has the story: Betts was only 20 years old at...
