What is Hernan’s Value?

Hernan Perez looks like an unremarkable ballplayer on the surface. Among Brewers positional players, Baseball Prospectus ranks him in a tie for 8th most valuable WARP (1.1) along with catcher Manny Pina. Compared to left fielders, which is Perez’s majority position in large part due to Ryan Braun’s nagging injuries throughout 2017, the superutility’s Total Average (TAv) of...

Small things hopefully positive signs for Villar

Both of the Brewers' run-scoring hits in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park went the opposite way. For Ryan Braun, that was business as usual. For Jonathan Villar, it was another small sign of progress as he works through his season of regression.

Ace and Kinesiologist, Jimmy Nelson

PITTSBURGH — The Brewers are probably the greatest surprise among the league’s 30 teams this season. The club remains atop the NL Central for a number of reasons — the triumphant return of Eric Thames to the States, a breakout year from Travis Shaw. Among Milwaukee’s 25-man roster, however, the player most directly responsible for the team’s success is probably Jimmy Nelson...

The Milwaukee Brewers bullpen remains the Achilles heel

What is going on in Milwaukee? I guess money isn’t everything in terms of winning ball games. With the rest of the National League Central Division struggling to find its identity, Milwaukee continues to give baseball fans a reason to believe. Although we all know that the Cubs are going to start winning. They have to right? Regardless, the Brewers will go as far as their bull...

Can the Brewers remain contenders in NL Central?

In July 2014, the Milwaukee Brewers (49-32) held a five-and-a-half game lead in the NL Central.

Can The Brewers Win The NL Central?

It hasn’t been easy, nor was is it anticipated: with the season’s halfway point eclipsed and All-Star Game ads running nonstop on ESPN, the Milwaukee Brewers sit atop the tightest division race in baseball.  Yup, the same division the Cubs won by 17.5 games last year.

The Brewers Are Happening

I’ve noticed a recurring question in most of my chats. For the past several weeks, a similar query has shown up time and again, and that query is, to paraphrase: “where do the Brewers actually have to be in order to be a deadline buyer?” And I’ve mostly ignored the query, or brushed it aside, because while in one sense it was a worthwhile question, I didn’t think it was...
