Brew Crew Online Season Two: Episode 27


Welcome again to our second season of Brew Crew Online. In episode 27 (which is also the season finale) senior staff writer Lou Olsen and staff writers Ryan Connor and David Grant and I to discuss every and all things Milwaukee Brewers for a forty-five minutes. In this episode, we talked about the Brewers’ change in their line-up,  the Winter Meetings, and much more. Here’s a more in-depth look on what we discussed:

  • What can Will Smith bring to the Brewers?
  • Who will lead-off for the Brew Crew with Norichika Aoki gone?
  • How will the offense fare in 2014 with Ryan Braun back?
  • Our three round-table questions:
  •     Who do you want at first base?
  •     How do you think Wei-Chung Wang will perform next season?
  •    What did you make of the Winter Meetings?

Thank you again for listening. It was a rather short episode for us, but we hope you enjoyed it nonetheless. We will be starting up season three in March 2014. Thanks for listening once again!

    Absolutely love this article.

    Let’s post the more realistic scenario. Sandy Auctioner will pretend to make an effort, even sending chocolates. For one reason or another we won’t sign either and we’ll end up with a few new minimum wage spring training invitees.

    Very, very well stated article. An argument can be made for a 4th option, which is to sign Wright and trade Dickey, with no disrespect to the latter.

    If Dickey could be combined with another ball player or two, such as Duda & Mejia, we could make a run at Toronto’s Travis d’Arnaud or D-Back’s Justin Upton. Depends of whether those teams are interested, of course. Dickey’s value will likely never be higher, so we should consider extracting as much value as possible to address a pressing need either at catcher or in the outfield.

    The key concept is to acquire high quality ball players whenever the opportunity presents itself. The addition of Justin Upton or Travis d’Arnaud could yield long-term benefits.
