64 Days until Opening Day


Pitchers and catchers report to Maryvale in a few short weeks, which means Opening Day is getting closer and closer. The Milwaukee Brewers and their fan base see it as a new beginning; last year is in the past and the future looks bright. Once April 4th rolls around and Harvey’s Wallbangers head out to the field and face the San Francisco Giants, Miller Park will be filled with optimism as new GM David Stearns rebuilds the team to competitive form.

More from Reviewing the Brew

The Brewers offense will rely on Ryan Braun’s bat more than ever. He needs to stay healthy and produce at a consistent rate throughout the season. 64, the number of games Braun is from tying Charlie Moore for 5th place on the Brewers all-time games played list at 1,283. Braun is atop the list for current Brewers, but sits at 7th all-time with 1,219.
