Brew Crew Online: Episode Eight


As you noted, last week we took a break. This week however, we made sure to bring you everything and all things Brewers as usual. Episode eight, while a longer episode, delves into a lot of the problems the Brewers are facing, alongside a rather long and somewhat heated discussion on the All-Star votes. As usual, here’s what Colin and I discuss:

-The current series against the Kansas City Royals

-The struggling bullpen

-Should Francisco Rodriguez start closing?

-Randy Wolf’s consistency

-Upcoming games that the Brewers should win

-Is average pitching good enough?

-All Star voting so far (make sure to vote)

-A personal endorsement to vote for Ryan Braun (write in Norichika Aoki too!)

-The AL vs the NL: Which league is more dominant this year?

-Our pitchers and hitters of the week / month

-Keeping Michael Fiers and Martin Maldonado on the roster going forward

-Shaun Marcum’s strikeout transition

Until next week, thank you for listening and go Brew Crew!
