David Phelps
Steve Wynocker - Aug 31, 2020

The Philadelphia Phillies addressed their biggest need by trading for right-handed reliever David Phelps. He comes over with a 2-3 record and a very respectable 2.77 ERA. With the Milwaukee Brewers, he was holding down the seventh and eighth innings. This is where the Phillies can really use his veteran arm. He will join a […]

Brewers Intrasquad
Steve Wynocker - Jul 21, 2020

Since July 14th, the Milwaukee Brewers have played seven blue/gold intrasquad games against each other. The finale concluded Tuesday in a 2-2 tie when star Christian Yelich bounced into a double play. While the game may have been uneventful, for an intrasquad game that can often be a positive result. Several pitchers got necessary work […]

MLB Bullpen
Chris Larson - Jul 19, 2020

Milwaukee Brewers
Steve Wynocker - Jul 16, 2020

The Milwaukee Brewers are looking to get back to the postseason for the third straight season — something that’s never been done in franchise history. In order to do that, they will have to navigate through perhaps the most competitive division in all of baseball, which is the National League Central. The 2020 season will […]

Milwaukee Brewers
Mark D'Aquila - Jun 16, 2020

The Brew Crew had an evenly balanced five picks in five rounds in last week’s draft. However, interestingly enough they spent all five picks on hitting without selecting a single pitcher. Although they made some solid selections, it was still surprising to see a team whose biggest need at the major league level is pitching […]

Joe Rini - Feb 25, 2020

Billy Eppler built the 2022 New York Mets with help from his predecessors. It isn’t a criticism because no general managerial regime is a total success or failure.
