Really? You must be seeing something I'm not then. The Brewers are certainly not a top-notch defensive squad with Moose at 2B, but I haven't seen any concerning issues defensively.


Play around with the table here https://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/MLB/2019-standard-fielding.shtml to see what I mean. The Crew is average this year in terms of fielding percentage (Moose has the 2nd most errors, if one puts stock in that kind of stat) but most of the advanced metrics look brutal for our team defense. You can even tab over to the 2018 figures to compare with last year’s stellar effort. I really think team defense is a huge missing ingredient this year, and deserves more attention.

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals, Cubs, and Manny Machado, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

I know a lot of people (especially Badger fans) love LePay, but there’s something about his halting voice cadence that has a “nails on chalkboard” effect on me. Fortunately for me I don’t pay that much attention to the TV commentary anyway.

Good call of the game, Lepay!

Way to slug, Orlando! Let’s go!

Flip Arcia and Cain and set the lineup for a bit.

According to gameday he K'd on a straight fastball that was a foot outside.

Glad to know we got rid of Keon Broxton to pay $80M to Keon Broxton 2.0

Former Brewer farmhand, Cy Sneed, made his MLB debut today.

Yeah, Cain was horrible last year. Dump him. [rolling eyes]

3 run HR. Chase Anderson drove in the first run with a sac bunt suicide squeeze.

Yeah I've mentioned it in the past as well, and when there's such a difference between xFIP/FIP and ERA the defense is likely a big part of it. Something as simple as defensive efficiency (Which is more or less the inverse of BABIP) illustrates the struggles fairly well; Brewers are the 6th worst team in the majors at turning balls in play into outs.
