The Milwaukee Brewers 2019 season is about to get underway. The Reviewing the Brew podcast gets ready for the start of the season.
Hosts David Gasper, Matthew Dewoskin, and Keaton Anderson get together to discuss the latest Milwaukee Brewers news on the Reviewing the Brew podcast.
There are two days left until the beginning of the 2019 regular season and we could not be more excited. Jhoulys Chacin will be starting Opening Day against the St. Louis Cardinals and it’s going to be a whirlwind from there.
The roster was the main point of discussion this week. The Brewers have set their starting rotation and Chase Anderson did not make it. Was that the right decision? And how high of a ceiling does this rotation have with three rookies in Freddy Peralta, Brandon Woodruff, and Corbin Burnes making up the heart of the group?
Once Jimmy Nelson returns to the rotation, who among this group leaves to make room for him? We discuss a couple possibilities.
With the bullpen, we discuss our thoughts on this group. There’s some concern about the depth for them and the injuries just keep piling up. Can they remain the force they once were in 2018?
Craig Kimbrel is still a free agent and there were previous reports about the Brewers being interested in him, but nothing since. He would certainly make this bullpen a lot more formidable.
On to the offense, this group is very strong all the way through the lineup. If Orlando Arcia continues his hitting ways from September and October last year, then 1-8 in the Crew’s lineup is one of the most formidable groups in all of baseball. With all the power in there, could the Crew have six players hit 30+ home runs? We find out if that would indeed be some kind of record?
Also Travis Shaw is one of those players that could hit 30+ home runs this season, and many fans, including ourselves, have been wondering why the Milwaukee Brewers haven’t signed Travis Shaw to an extension yet. We think we’ve found the reason why and when they possibly could sign Shaw to an extension.
Our mailbag segment includes questions about potential breakout players this year and when will we see Keston Hiura up in Milwaukee.
All of that and more is discussed in this week’s episode of the Reviewing the Brew podcast. Take a listen by clicking the link at the top of the article.
