This week on the Reviewing the Brew podcast, David Gasper, Matthew Dewoskin, and Dairyland Express expert Paul Bretl discuss the latest news and rumors surrounding the Milwaukee Brewers.
Next week is when pitchers and catchers will finally report to spring training. For us Milwaukee Brewers fans, it can’t come soon enough.
We start the podcast with the news that the Brewers have finally signed a free agent starting pitcher! Don’t get too excited, it’s just Josh Tomlin. Our excitement about the addition of Tomlin is immeasurable. And by immeasurable, we mean it’s so tiny, we can’t find a scale small enough to measure it.
But there are other potential rotation options that remain out there, namely lefties Dallas Keuchel and Gio Gonzalez. Which one would make more sense to add to this roster, and which is the most likely addition?
Also, in the past week, there have been reports about possible rule changes coming to MLB. We discuss each of the proposals and whether or not they seem like good ideas and how they could possibly impact the Milwaukee Brewers.
The proposed rule changes include: the Kyler Murray rule, the possibility of lowering the mound, draft order changes to prevent tanking and reward winning, roster expansion, September call ups, a pitch clock, one single trade deadline, a three-batter minimum for pitchers, and making the DH universal across the league.
With spring training coming up next week, there are bound to be some position battles to watch this year. Namely the ones for second base and the starting rotation will be key for the Brewers. We discuss who we think will win those battles and what it’ll mean for the Crew.
The starting rotation battle will be interesting to watch as there are several quality options to go with in a rotation, but not enough spots for all of them. We pitch some unconventional ideas.
Over the past week, we’ve been revealing our Top 15 Brewers prospects list, and we discuss our favorites so far of the ones we’ve revealed.
Then the mailbag segment made its return and we answer questions surrounding the possibility of another signing before Opening Day, the chances of getting Keuchel, and the turnaround of Wade Miley.
The Reviewing the Brew podcast will now be recording on Tuesday nights at 8 PM CST starting next week.
The Milwaukee Brewers are finally close to being back in action, and we can’t wait for Brewers baseball to be back.
