Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (18-36) at Milwaukee General Hospital (24-30)

I don't have much time today, so this will be a short preview. The Brewers are in bad shape, with several players (Chris Narveson, Mat Gamel, Marco Estrada, Alex Gonzalez, various catchers) out, Aramis Ramirez and Ryan Braun banged up, and others (Weeks) underperforming. The Cubs might be looking ahead to their next series with […]

Series Preview – Chicago Cubs (13-18) vs Milwaukee Brewers (13-18)

I liked the Brewers chances of winning the NL Central this year, even without Fielder, given the loss of Pujols and Carpenters injuries and my general distrust of the Reds pitching staff. They've had some awful luck so far though, and it looks like it's not going to happen. They've lost three of their key […]

Milwaukee is already up 1-0 in this series but these things take too damn long for me to write to have this up before that happened (laughing).

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (3-3) at Milwaukee Brewers (3-4)

The Cubs won the Arizona series but came away less two members of the rotation. They head to Milwaukee, who are coming off three straight wins against the Atlanta Braves. Ryan Braun and Rickie Weeks have gotten off to hot starts but the rest of the lineup hasn’t started hitting yet. Here’s a look at […]

NL Central Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

Last Year: The Brewers finished in third place in the NL Central with a 77-85 record. They had the second-best offense in the NL with a team .334 wOBA, trailing only the surprising Cincinnati Reds. However, it was their pitching and defense that proved to be their downfall. Brewers pitchers posted a 4.21 FIP and […]
