2017 MLB Season Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

2017 MLB Season Team Preview Milwaukee Brewers Eric Thames funnyThe NL Central is a tough division to navigate for the Brewers when the Cubs and Cardinals are two of the best teams in the National League… the Pirates aren’t too shabby either. Milwaukee has to play against some great offenses and their starting rotation is one of the worst in the Majors.

Milwaukee is expected to have another down year. Live odds for online betting has their over/under season win total at 70.5. I have them winning under that amount of games. The bet will come down to the final days of the season to payout.

The Brewers do have some talent on the team. They will cause a headache for opposing catchers. They have a ton of speed and will have the green light to run. Milwaukee could ‘steal’ a few games if they can easily get runners in scoring position.

Here is the 2017 MLB season preview for the Milwaukee Brewers.

2016 MLB Season Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

Chris Carter Milwaukee brewers 2016 mlb season preview america's white boyThe Milwaukee Brewers are a long way away from the team that once had a deep farm system. The Brewers didn’t win any championships with Prince Fielder and company, but they did bring this franchise back from the dead. They do have some gems in the minors ready to be called up in the next few years, but their current Major League roster is a bit thin.

The Brewers currently have nine players in camp trying to win the starting center field spot. All nine players are somewhere in-between a Four-A player and a washed-up veteran. Their outfield defense will not be pretty.

Chris Carter and Domingo Santana both have a ton of power, but opposing pitchers will rack up plenty of strikeouts against them this season.

Here is the 2016 MLB season preview for the Milwaukee Brewers.

2015 MLB Team Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

Milwaukee Brewers 2015 mlb team preview funny shirtless hat weirdOn paper, the Milwaukee Brewers have one of the most talented starting lineups in the National League. Unfortunately, they are thin on depth. It could be a long season if something unforeseen happens.

Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura are two of the best defensive players in the National League. Their bats aren’t too shabby either. They should both be All-Stars in 2015.

Matt Garza and Kyle Lohse anchor a starting rotation that is a bit top-heavy. Mike Fiers was hot at the end of the year, but he hasn’t been able to put together an entire season. The back of the rotation could have trouble.

Khris Davis struck out in nearly 25% of his at-bats in 2014. Will he be more patient this season?

Here is the 2015 MLB season preview for the Milwaukee Brewers.

2014 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 100 Outfielders

Mike Trout Shirless Los Angeles Angels 2014 MLB Fantasy Baseball Rankings OutfieldersSince most of us play in fantasy leagues that start five outfielders, I decided to super-size my rankings for outfielders. We all know Mike Trout is the best fantasy player in baseball, but the rest of the field is very deep. There are a dozen guys who can help you in every category in a 5×5 standard roto league.

My outfield fantasy baseball rankings are based on a standard 5×5 league. If you have any specific questions about a different league, email me BobbyMcrib@gmail.com.

1. Mike Trout – Los Angeles Angels – Trout is the consensus #1 overall fantasy player this season. He’s a yearly threat to be a 30/30 player and who knows, he could be a 40/40 player at some point. He’ll be an MVP candidate and be near the top of every major offensive category.

2. Andrew McCutchen – Pittsburgh Pirates – The reigning National League MVP should meet or exceed last year’s numbers. He’s in his prime and could even top 30 home runs this season.

2014 MLB Team Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

Hot Sexy Milwaukee Brewers Front Row Amy Williams 2014 MLB Team PreviewIt’s easy to point the finger at Ryan Braun for the Brewers sub-par season, but they had other issues. They were trying to move on from Prince Fielder and new players were pressured to contribute right away.

Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura had breakout seasons and look to improve further in 2014. The ceiling is high for both players and they could both find themselves on the National League All-Star team.

Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Cincinnati are all projected to battle for the NL Central crown. Where does that leave Milwaukee?

Here is the 2014 MLB season preview for the Milwaukee Brewers.

MLB: Which Players are Linked to Biogenesis Scandal?

ryan-braun-steroids-biogenesisMLB officially suspended Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun for the remainder of the 2013 season. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who’s surprised by this announcement.

Braun failed a drug test after his NL MVP 2011 season, but avoided the mandatory 50-game suspension due to the mishandling of his urine sample. This did not sit well with the MLB. Since then, one could say that MLB has been on a witch hunt in an attempt to find evidence to suspend him.

The Miami-area Biogenesis clinic was the smoking gun the MLB needed to suspend Braun and potentially up to 20 other players.

Which MLB players are allegedly on the Biogenesis client list? We list the players below. Continue reading

The Best Player Nicknames in Baseball History

Goose+Gossage+MLB+Nicknames+HOFAnyone can have a nickname, it’s easy. If you’re name is William or Robert, you can go by Billy or Bobby. You can even have a nickname that goes with your name. An example of that would be “Quick Nick” or “Slow Joe”. See how easy it is?
