Record 85–77
Playoffs No
All Star Hader, Yelich
Offensive player Yelich
Starter Chacin
Reliever Hader
Most surprising Arcia
Most disappointing Huira

Bold prediction: Brewers get crushed the 1st month of the season by Cards and Dodgers, spending the rest of the year playing solid, entertaining baseball that gives us hope next year

Hope for the future: Peralta, Burnes, and Woodruff keep their collective heads above water

Story of the year: injuries injuries injuries Cain misses most of the season, Nelson moves forward, gets injuries again, Knebel lost season, Jeffress basically a lost season, Thames less than 30 games, Braun plays less than 81 games, etc.

Comeback player: Albers

Personally I’m not discouraged by this. I think it’s more a matter of this is the kind of stuff that happens in baseball. The organization is on the right path and I’d expect he following year to be more competitive.

Crazy prediction: so much parity in the NL that only one team wins 90 games (not gonna happen)


Are you sure your not a cards fan? Be honest. I think you also want baseball to strike. Wouldn’t affect you much, if memory serves me right.


If not for the Yankees the Cards, those smug so and sos, are my most despised franchise in any sport. If my wife was a Cards fan I’d divorce her. If my kid was a Cards fan he’d be out of the will. If my boss was a Cards fan I’d quit my job of 35 years.


I knew you were a cards fan!

Bump.

How we looking? My Cain prediction is spot on and predicting Yelich and Hader was easy. The rest isn’t looking all too great for me.

44 BF.net predictions in this thread came up with an average of about 91 wins (90.77 if I mathed right) versus preseason projections of 85 (ZIPS), 86 (538) & 88 (BPro).

Currently on pace for 83-84 wins.

Record: 101-61
Playoffs: NL Central Champs
Highest Level of Playoffs: World Series Champs, 4-2 over Boston
All-Stars: Burnes, Hader, Kimbrel, Yelich, Shaw, Aguilar, Grandal, Moustakas
Offensive Player of the Year: Yelich - another near-triple crown
Starting Pitcher of the Year: Corbin Burnes - Becomes a home-grown TOR pitcher
Relief Pitcher of the Year: Hader/Kimbrel (tie)
Most Surprising Position Player: Ryan Braun - Hits like the Braun of 2011-2012/Mike Moustakas - Arcia slump leads to first appearances at shortstop since Full-Season A Ball as he has a 2017-esque season with the bat and Hiura forces his way to the majors
Most Surprising Starting Pitcher: Brandon Woodruff - Burnes will get the All-Star Game appearance and the recognition, but Woodruff will be just as good.
Most Surprising Relief Pitcher: Craig Kimbrel - Signs a one-year deal with mutual option for 2020/Rick Wilson - emerges as solid asset/Jimmy Nelson - Goes to pen as young guns dominate 2019 rotation (tie)
Most Disappointing Position Player: Orlando Arcia - Hits .235/.285/.330 - Barely enough to keep his job, but will lose PT and be relegated to a defensive replacement for Moustakas.
Most Disappointing Starting Pitcher: Chacin - Slight regression from 2018, but young guns will pick up the slack
Most Disappointing Relief Pitcher: Knebel/Jeffress - Injuries will have them miss first-half playing time.

Bold Preditions: As hinted in other topics:
1. Brewers reach deal to add Kimbrel to bullpen by end of opening series.
2. Moustakas will play some shortstop as Arcia struggles at the plate (not 2018 bad, but...).
3. Jimmy Nelson does a John Smoltz and becomes a dominant force in the pen as he recovers from missed PT in 2017-2018.


Well, to date - here's where I was right:
1. Yelich is contending for the Triple Crown again.
2. Hader, Yelich. Grandal, and Moustakas are the four All-Stars for the Crew initially - and I called all of them.
3. Moose hitting like 2017.
4. Woodruff is proving to be a good pitcher - and I didn't expect him to make the ASG.

Where I was wrong:
1. Burnes. Wow.
2. Kimbrel. Didn't think he'd go to the [BLEEP]ing Cubs.
3. Nelson. Maybe trying to make him come back as a starter was a mistake.

Wow, Surhoff nailed just about everything. Burnes is probably the biggest disappointment but other than that...wow.

Yes, he did. Really impressive.
We’ll just have to see about that WC loss though!

No, way. Biggest disappointment has got to be Aguilar or Shaw. Probably Shaw as no one would have ever guessed he would go from one of the better 3B to can’t hit anything period.

Burnes was a young pitcher with little track record. Him struggling isn’t a huge shock. Big disappointment, but I think a slugger falling off the map completely at 29 was bigger. Though I understand some had crazy expectation for Burnes.

I mean sure, Shaw makes sense. I wouldn't say Aguilar. Burnes pitching wise has to be near the top. I guess my point was it's not Peralta, but he nailed everything else at least subjectively. Even Peralta judging by many predictions here was certainly a disappointment to many and high on the list.

True Blue Brew Crew said:
I only have a few thoughts, not a list of predictions on all of these items...

- Brandon Woodruff looks to be a disappointment based on what I'm seeing here. I see a lot of people tabbing him as their starting pitcher of the year. I think he's the first starter removed from the rotation, non-injury related. I think he once again provides tremendous value to the team pitching in relief as the season winds on.

- I've said it elsewhere but since this looks like an official prediction thread, I'll put it here. Freddy Peralta is going to be looked on as this team's ACE by year's end. Way too much misunderstanding here of just how good he is. Not a day goes by where someone doesn't post something completely inaccurate about him. Thankfully they get to play the games and this will bear itself out on the field.

- Continuing the theme of consolidating predictions into this space, I believe Keston Hiura will be the Brewers 2nd best hitter, behind only Yelich, from the day he's called up. By season's end he'll be a fixture in the lineup and the playing time juggling will be between Shaw, Moose, and Aguilar. Those 3 will occupy 1st and 3rd based on splits and career success against the opposing pitcher.


Yuck on the first two, glad to be so very wrong on Woodruff. Still expecting big things from Freddy. If anything, Woodruff's success putting it all together should give everyone hope for the much younger Peralta and for Corbin Burnes as well.

Couldn't have been more right about Hiura. He's right there in 2nd behind Yelich in OPS at .943, well ahead of Thames (.854), Grandal (.851), and Moustakas (.849). Calling Hiura a lineup fixture may seem obvious now, but there were people here expecting Hiura to be a September call-up who would become a regular in 2020.

Wow, I might go to Vegas after looking at my predictions.. Hopefully the Wildcard loss is the one I get way wrong.

I think Aguilar was a pretty big disappointment. If only I wouldn't have picked Chacin by default..... I didn't want to predict which of the youngsters would shine, be okay, and suck - but you kind of knew that would be where it all landed on Woodruff, Peralta, and Burnes. I do have them winning the wildcard game at least.

The rest of it isn't so bad. Although I definitely gave up on the season about a month ago. I never specified the way in which Arcia would be surprising.

My 2019 Brewers Predictions:

Win-Loss Record: 97-65

Playoffs (Yes, No): Yes, Central Champs

Highest Playoff Level Achieved: World Series

All-Star Game Representative(s): Yelich, Shaw, Grandal, Hader, Woodruff

Offensive Player of the Year: Shaw

Starting Pitcher of the Year: Woodruff (18-10, 2.86 ERA)

Relief Pitcher of the Year: Hader

Most Surprising Player: Braun. I think he starts a little slow, then heats up after the AS break to the tune of an overall .300 AVG, 32 HRs, 100 RBIs. I also think Taylor Williams is going to break out as a high-end leverage-innings reliever this year.

Most Disappointing Player: Aguilar. I think he still puts up solid numbers, but ends up leveling off at somewhere between his 2018 first half and second half stats.


I was a little too optimistic on this team's chances. Nailed the All-Star game reps besides the clear big miss in Shaw. Got the starter and reliever right. Braun has had a very good season, but not as good as I predicted. Williams was a clear miss. Aguilar was a good pick for disappointing, but he was even worse than predicted.
