Simple fact: #Brewers are not bad enough to warrant multi-year rebuild. Figure out roster depth, advance prospects in '16; compete in '17. — BP Milwaukee (@BPMilwaukee) May 22, 2016 We often think of rebuilds in simplistic terms. A team gets rid of its notable assets. Loses many games, gets quality draft picks, rebuilds farm system and then once prospects come up, the team in...
The Brewers were able to pull out a 3-2 victory over Atlanta in yet another long game, proving once again that there are in fact tiers of terribleness. Top Play (WPA): After another solid outing from Junior Guerra, Chris Capuano allowed a two-run home run to Gordon Beckham, of all people, that put the Braves in front (+.348). The fact that the top play by WPA was not the game-winning...
Central in the Great Brewers Pitching Meltdown of 2016 has been a complete loss of control, on the part of pretty much everyone. The rotation has the seventh-worst walk rate in baseball, at 9.3 percent, and the bullpen’s 11.2 percent clip ranks third-to-last. Taylor Jungmann walked so many batters, he went down to Triple-A (where he’s done the same thing). Wily Peralta has looked...

It’s definitely a unique time for both Brewers fans and management, as its been a number of years since both sides have experienced this deep of a rebuild. However, just...

It can be hard to look at the positives of an organization like the Milwaukee Brewers who are in a full rebuild. However, Milwaukee is quietly hanging out at fourth in the National League Central and are just another reason why this division is arguably the toughest in the league. The division has been in the conversation for a World Series ever since David Freese and the St. Louis...
For Milwaukee Brewers fans, the narrative for the 2016 season was already spelled out for them: it was not going to be a fun season, and a winning record would be a complete fantasy. The team is in full rebuilding mode, and fans would just have to stay patient until the team would be ready to compete in however many years from now. For myself, I bought the narrative. I knew going...
Buyers and sellers are among some of the great debates during the summer of the Major League Baseball season, and the Milwaukee Brewers are front and center. With a tough National League Central, it isn’t likely that the Brewers will end up in a pennant race. With that being said, Milwaukee’s stars Johnathan Lucroy and Ryan Braun are possible trade pieces down the stretch of...
