The Milwaukee Brewers are in the playoffs! Listen to co-experts David Gaspar and Matthew Dewoskin, and contributor Isaac Buttke discuss the series against the Cardinals, the upcoming series with the Tigers, and more!
The Milwaukee Brewers swept the St. Louis Cardinals and clinched a playoff spot. The Brewers are assured of a spot in the National League Wild Card game, but could they clinch the division? They’re only one game behind the Chicago Cubs. They’ll need to win out, and have the Cubs lose two. The odds aren’t in the Brewers’ favor, but they’ve faced longer odds.
Did the St. Louis Cardinals roll over for the Brewers? They did bat Matt Carpenter lead off when the Brewers announced they would start Dan Jennings, and they had a runner fall down, get up, and still run home when Erik Kratz was holding the baseball for an eternity. We don’t think this happened, but we can’t say that it didn’t!
Is Zach Davies the Milwaukee Brewers ace? No, really. We had a fan actually tell us this.
How hot is Isaac Buttke’s ‘Hottest Take’? Hint – It’s absolutely scorching, and you’ve got to hear it. There’s also a really good chance that it comes true!
We’ve got all this, our mailbag, other key questions, and more in our second episode of the Reviewing the Brew podcast. The Milwaukee Brewers are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2011, and we’ve got thoughts on each an every aspect. Give us a listen!
