Freddy Peralta – Tommen Baratheon
Both Freddy Peralta and Tommen Baratheon are just young kids thrust into a powerful position, with Peralta in the starting rotation, and Tommen as the King of Westeros. Peralta has struggled early on in his few starts in the rotation in 2019 while Tommen certainly has his share of struggles as King, especially in season 5.
Peralta and Tommen have youthful faces and smiles that just warm you up inside.
Hopefully for Brewers fans, Peralta won’t crack under pressure and give up on everything like Tommen did. Hopefully.
Jimmy Nelson – Sandor Clegane “The Hound”
Both Jimmy Nelson and Sandor Clegane are very large men. They’re both warriors that don’t give in to anything, whether that be shoulder surgery or enemy soldiers. Despite their hardened competitive shells, both have soft spots for certain people in their lives that are close to them.
Also, both were seemingly left for dead, one after an injury, and one literally assumed dead, for a season and a half. Then The Hound returned and is a much more likable character since his return. Jimmy Nelson has been out for over a season now and while he hasn’t returned yet, he is close, and he should be better than ever when he does return.
The 2019 season is very important for both Nelson and Sandor Clegane, as one is trying to re-establish himself as a big league starter and the other is trying to kill ice zombies and his brother that treated him so cruelly in their childhood.
David Stearns – Tywin Lannister
In every show that involves the high-born people that control the country they rule, there’s always somebody that’s pulling all the strings. In Game of Thrones, that’s Tywin Lannister who effectively controls the entire country and makes the big decisions.
For the Milwaukee Brewers, the man making the big decisions and pulling all the strings is GM David Stearns. Sometimes you have to make cruel, tough decisions that, while unpleasant to go through, are necessary for the preservation of the realm/championship window.
Both Stearns and Tywin have strong minds for strategy and planning for the future. They’re a perfect match for a Brewers-GOT crossover.
The Milwaukee Brewers will host Game of Thrones night on April 20th at Miller Park. Just like the 8th and final season, hopefully it’ll live up to the hype.
