Brew Crew Fever Podcast Episode 018

The Brewers are headed into the home stretch and are still in the playoff hunt. They are barely in it, but they are in it. One Brewer had a milestone home run and another had a great play, one of the best in all of baseball this year.

Ryan Braun hit his 300th home run, becoming the first player to hit 300 as a Brewer.

Brett Phillips threw out David Freese at the plate with a 104 mph throw, the hardest throw recorded this season, and the second hardest since statcast started recording that information in 2015.

The Brewers are heading into the home stretch doing much better than many experts predicted, and better than they have in the last couple of years. They already have 79 wins and they look to top my prediction of 82 wins.

The Brewers and Marlins moved their series from Miami to Milwaukee because of Hurricane Irma. Seating was limited at Miller Park due to staffing issues, but they still drew over 19,000 on Friday and about 25,000 on Saturday and Sunday.

  1. Here is where we really could have used Jimmy Nelson. How a pitcher of his caliber could be injured by blowing a base-running fundamental is beyond me. But if they can get past it by bringing up some young, hungry arms, and use the recipe they did last night with Suter going five, and the pen taking it the rest of the way, it’s a real plus for the organization. When I saw that it would be Davies to pitch for us last Saturday night, I was pumped. It didn’t take long before I was completely deflated. Maybe he’ll make up for his worst outing of the year in a timely way in the next ten days…but that’s a big maybe.

    1. We have an inexperienced pitching staff, but I think they’re performing better than most thought they would. Losing Nelson definitely hurt. We’ll see how Wilkerson pitches tomorrow. Hopefully he can pitch 6+ since we don’t have a day of for a while.
