Here at Reviewing the Brew, we’ve started a podcast to discuss all things Milwaukee Brewers baseball. Our first full episode features three of our writers focusing on Christian Yelich and the upcoming postseason.
This week on the Reviewing the Brew podcast, contributor Paul Bretl and co-expert Matthew Dewoskin joins host and co-expert David Gasper to get this podcast going.
With the season wrapping up, there are a lot of major storylines involving the Milwaukee Brewers to touch on.
Christian Yelich is making a very strong case for the NL MVP award with his strong second half and overall numbers. But there’s been a lot of debate with some fans to the south of Milwaukee that Javier Baez is a more deserving candidate for the award. We run through the cases that both players have to win the award and come to a pretty obvious conclusion.
The next major topic of discussion was the upcoming postseason. With the Brewers in position for the top Wild Card spot, who should get to start on the mound in that Wild Card game? What strategy should they use with their pitching staff?
With the NL wide open, there’s the potential for the Milwaukee Brewers to make a deep playoff run and make it all the way to the World Series. Could the Brewers be set up for a very successful postseason if they can make it past the initial round?
Also, is making the Wild Card game enough to consider the 2018 season a successful campaign? Or do they need to advance further to prevent the season from becoming a failure. The group disagrees with each other a little bit when it comes to defining success for this team.
We also incorporate our Mailbag segment, which includes questions from our followers on Twitter. These questions range from which opposing fanbase is most annoying to roster decisions to offseason free agent ideas.
Finally, we end with a segment we like to call “Hot Take Corner” as all three of us prepare our own hot takes on the Brewers. It’s a segment you won’t want to miss.
Let us know what you think of the podcast as we continue to mold it and improve it as we go along. Any feedback of what you liked or didn’t like would help out a lot.
