Series Preview: Brewers (73-63) at Cubs (61-76)

The Brewers started the season scorchingly hot and had a 20-8 record on May 1. Since then they’ve gone 53-55, are currently riding a five game losing streak, and are now tied with the (ugh) Cardinals for the division lead. I think the Pirates end up taking the division by season’s end but that big lead the Brewers built early in the year has given them a big cushion. (The new...

With Matt Garza slated to return to the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation in the not too distant future, manager Ron Roenicke will have to decide whether to keep Mike Fiers or Jimmy Nelson as a starter for the stretch run in September.

One Man’s Trash: Starting Fiers

This week's hot add was Mike Fiers (+62%). The Brewers hurler has posted a 9.5 K/9 and a 1.8 BB/9 since filling in for Matt Garza in the Milwaukee rotation. The strikeouts are no fluke, as he posted a K/9 of 11.4 in Triple-A this season. While his FIP is a run higher than his current ERA and Steamer is projecting a 3.60 ERA from this point forward, Fiers remains a great pickup...

What Can We Make of Mike Fiers?

If you've been paying any attention to the Milwaukee Brewers lately, you might have noticed a name you don't generally see when check the box scores: Mike Fiers. The 29-year-old is a starting pitcher in the organization and was taken in the 22nd round of the 2009 amateur draft. Suffice it to say, he is not a household name. Yet if he continues to pitch similarly to how he...

The contracts given to Ubaldo Jimenez, Ricky Nolasco and Matt Garza by the Orioles, Twins and Brewers, respectively, were remarkably similar. Each called for at least four years and roughly $12.5 million per year, then the going rate for what the offseason market deemed to be middle-tier but still highly valuable starters.

What Could Have Been: Chris Archer and the Chicago Cubs

When Jim Hendry traded for Matt Garza in 2011, he did so thinking that the addition of a playoff-tested arm would be what finally got the Chicago Cubs past the NLDS, perhaps even to a World Series. The Tampa Bay Rays, meanwhile, were simply doing what they did best. They were trading an ace pitcher at his maximum trade value, and building a constant flow of young talent for years...
