Curiosity Might Kill the Home-Run Spike

The Brewers’ Jared Hughes is the type of pitcher who’s endangered. When Hughes was one of the more effective relievers in baseball for the Pirates from 2013 to -15, he relied on one pitch — a sinker — that he threw time after time in the lower part of the strike zone.

What if the Brewers are still contending by the All-Star Break?

As we sit on an off day (with the Brewers still in first place), speculation has been circulating around what Milwaukee should do if they’re in contention come the trade deadline. Some say buy, others say to stick to the game plan that got the team here and not move off course. Both sides have their arguments. While I’ll be introducing how I’d like to see the team approach...

The Brewers have been unlucky

Milwaukee probably won’t win the NL Central this year, but don’t expect the team to disappear entirely. The Brewers were never supposed to make it this far. In BtBS’s preseason poll, all our writers picked the Cubs to win the NL Central; the most common choice for the Brew Crew was fourth place. Yet somehow, Milwaukee has surged to a 25-18 record, three games ahead of Chicago...

Domingo Santana Has Evolved Into a Big-League Hitter

The emergence of stars such as Eric Thames, Travis Shaw, and the two-headed catching monster that is Manny and the Jett have been instrumental in turning the 2017 Brewers into a feared offensive team.
