Brett Phillips’ Contact Issues are Officially Worrisome

In July of 2015, the Milwaukee Brewers traded away Carlos Gomez, and the centerpiece of the return package was centerfield prospect Brett Phillips.

The Brewers never looked like a playoff team by any means in 2016, but the fact that they improved upon their 2015 performance by five games despite all the talent that was jettisoned in that span is a good sign that things are moving...

Poll: Should The Brewers Tender Chris Carter?

That the Brewers should tender a contract to slugging first baseman Chris Carter seems, at first, to be obvious. After being non-tendered by the Astros last offseason, Carter signed a one-year, $2.5MM contract with Milwaukee, then tied Nolan Arenado for the NL home-run crown, with a career-high 41.

End of season post-mortem: 2016 Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers definitely played baseball this season. That’s one thing you can say about them without hesitation. Was it good baseball? Not always. But for the Brewers, this year wasn’t about contending for the division (impossible, when you share it with the Cubs) or even the Wild Card. It wasn’t even about finishing .500, though that would’ve been a nice surprise...
