Brewers have played at least 2 games more than every other team in the NLC. 17/23 games (And soon to be 20/26) have been against the three teams with the best run differential in the NL. We're done with the season series against the best team in the NL.

Basically, it's been one of the toughest schedules to start the season of any team. In that time we've also auditioned three young starters in the rotation, with the growing pains that entails. Despite that, we're still 13-10.


Exactly... get through the tough part, be on top of the Central... then we take the damn title, and make a playoff run.

Hiura will be up at some point. So might Erceg if he keeps it up.

Brewers deadline moves could very well be moving a Moustakas/Shaw/Aguilar type to make room for the kids.

And even then, looking at the slumping players...

In 74 PAs prior to this last game, Aguilar has nine walks. In 79 PAs, Shaw has 8.

In fact, most of the offense, outside of Braun, Arcia, Perez, and Thames, are really doing well in the walks department. Thames and PErez, though, had been hitting at least somewhat well.

Right now CC has to find some pitching to take some of the pressure off the offense. They need to score 5-6 runs every game to overcome the HR barrage his pitchers are giving up. I'd hate to rush Hiura or Erceg to the majors because the offense can't overcome the pitching woes.

Right now CC has the pitching to take some of the pressure off the offense. They will score 5-6 runs every game to overcome the HR barrage his pitchers are no longer going to be giving up. I'd hate to rush Hiura or Erceg to the majors because there is no need, as there aren't any pitching woes.


There ... fixed this post to reflect the optimism that is only allowed in this thread. There are plenty of other threads to share non-optimistic thoughts. Only sunshine and rainbows here. SUNSHINE AND RAINBOWS!

Insert comment about terrible pitching. Insert comment about terrible hitting. Yet we are still a game above .500 after playing a brutally tough first months schedule. Really only see us going up from here!

I agree. Call me crazy but I really think this team has most of the pieces in place to make a strong run down the stretch.

If we take away the atrocious starts by Peralta, Burnes, and Woodruff to a lesser degree, the rest of the starters have fared quite well (with the exception of a few shaky starts by Chacin but he's never been very good in April). Chase and Zach have been great and Gio should be solid enough.

Let's go with Chacin-Anderson-Davies-Woodruff-Gonzalez. Move Peralta and Burnes to the pen. I get it, they need to develop, but not if we want to be competitive this year. Please, no more starts for Peralta and Burnes. We just can't afford a high probability for loss in such a tight division.

Start Gamel in the outfield when any RHP is starting. The position players are starting to hit and things will click soon.

I think the only critical component we're missing is another high leverage arm to supplement Hader.

Your take is EXACTLY what I think.

When Nelson comes back to the rotation, woody can go to the pen. Then add that high leverage arm and we’re in business.

Yep. The team is playing as well as could be expected so far with the brutal start. Outside of Yelich things have gone poorly as well. Yet we still are doing about as well as you could hope for.

Our pitching staffs ERA with our actual starters, Chacin Davies Anderson Gio Woodruff is 3.98. It would be lower if Gio and Anderson had more than 3 starts.

Hader Guerra Jeffress Claudio Albers combined ERA is 3.4. The other 3 just have to avoid being completely awful and our staff ERA is right at 4. Hart, Williams and insert someone pitching around 4.5 in the pen accomplishes that.

We went through this same early season shuffle last year. 17-16 is 2 games worse than where the team was at 33 games last year. Grandal and Moose were not on the team last year. Aguilar is waking. Thames is doing plenty well enough. Gamel is there to make Braun a 50/50 player. If Shaw continues like this you look to Keston.

It's time to tighten up the playbook, stop with the ideas and roll with what is working. That'll win.

The goal is 4.9 offense and 4.0 pitching and defense. The offense is over 4.9 and it has a few black holes. The pitching in there to be a 4.0 era team from today forward.

The Crew will set the all time team home run record.

From this date forward, the crew will have the lowest earned run average in the NL.

The Brewers will get past the Dodgers and beat the Yankee’s in the World Series.

That almost seems like a given at this point. Their previous team record of 231 HR in 2007 was an average of 1.43 home runs per game. Currently through 34 games they have 61 home runs which is an average of 1.80 per game. From this point forward they would need to average less than 1.3 HR/game the rest of the way in order to not break the record, which seems unlikely.

Another HR fun fact, the Brewers are only 21 home runs away this season from tying the total number of HRs hit by the 1992 Brewers for the entire season (a team that won 92 games). They should have that number before Memorial Day this year.

I should have been more clear, they will set the all time “MLB” team home run record.

Brewers are a month away from a very favorable schedule in June & July.... hard not to be optimist that if they are over .500 vs the elite teams in league, how they should be against the bottom half of the league

The crew’s era has started its free fall. Not sure when we’re gonna hit again, but when we do, you can bet there’s gonna be a run.
