The top 2 seeds advanced by wide margins, fitting as they are pitchers in the Suppan Region.

The first round in the Jeff Suppan Region gave us a mix of easy wins, close finishes, and a couple of upsets in the “Least Liked Brewers of the Last Decade” bracket. For most, it still seems like top-seeded Matt Garza is a heavy favorite to make it out of the...

Brewers Flashback: The Tenure Of Jim Henderson

Although the start of baseball has been delayed, that doesn’t stop us from taking a little trip down memory lane and remembering some players that maybe were overlooked due to how the Brewers performed that season.

Redoing the Dark Ages: An OOTP 21 Series with the Milwaukee Brewers

What if the Brewers didn’t go 14 years without a winning season? From 1993 through 2006, the Milwaukee Brewers went 14 consecutive seasons without posting a winning record. The club never finished higher than third place in their division and wound up in the divisional cellar five times. Only two years did they finish fewer than 10 games back of first place; the average finish for the Brewers during this period was more than 23 games shy of the leader. Fans endured five years of 90+ losses,...

Some unusual, hard-to-analyze contests show up in round 2 of the Hammonds Region.

There were blowouts galore in Round 1 of the Hammonds Region, as even a pair of Milwaukee Brewers’ underdogs laid waste to their higher-seeded opponents in route to victory. That could be a sign this region is up for grabs in the “Least Liked Brewers of...

Milwaukee Brewers option five to the minor leagues

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports Wahl, Yardley, Perdomo, Nottingham, and Feyereisen sent down The Milwaukee Brewers’ front office has been busy as Bobby Wahl, Eric Yardley, Angel Perdomo, and Jacob Nottingham were optioned to AAA San Antonio while J.P.

Unlike in the Sheffield Region, not all of the “favorites” took home a victory in the first round of the Gagne Region. The 10-seed, Tyler Cravy, took down 7th-seeded Mark Kotsay with shockingly little resistance (72%-28%).

Can Justin Smoak bounce back?

The Brewers entered the free-agent period with a void at first base. They let go of their top option from last year, Eric Thames, declining his $7.5M club option for 2020 in favor of a $1M buyout. Months before that, the Brewers traded right-handed complement Jesus Aguilar to the Rays. The Brewers are now set to rely on former Mariner, Ranger and Blue Jay Justin Smoak, whom they signed to a $5M guarantee in December. Smoak’s contract also includes a $5.5M option for 2021.
