Milwaukee Brewers Schedule for April

It’s never too early to look ahead to the Brewers Schedule for April 2010. Get your tickets while you still have first dibs! The Brewers’ first two series are against two premiere National League teams who made it to the playoffs. The Brewers will play their home opener on Monday, April 5th against the Colorado Rockies. This series against the Rockies will last until April 7th. This past season, the Rockies entered in the playoffs as the National League wild card and were swept by the Phillies. Then on April 9th-April 11th, the Brewers will host this season’s division clinching St. Louis Cardinals. Incidentally, the St. Louis Cardinals recently hired Mark McGwire as their hitting coach. Remember him from the late 90s? Hopefully with the new pitching staff, the Brewers can make pull together a tighter pitching staff for the 2010 season.

Milwaukee Brewers Pitchers Have a New Coach for 2010

After finishing last in the league with a 5.37 ERA, the Milwaukee Brewers have hired a new pitching coach. Rick Peterson has signed a two year contract with the Brewers as the new pitching coach. Peterson has spent 11 seasons in Major League baseball with both Oakland and the New York Mets. In addition, Peterson has previously worked with Brewers’ manager Ken Macha and bench coach Willie Randolph.

The Brewers have also asked bullpen coach Stan Kyles to return and are currently working out a deal with interim coach Chris Bosio. Hopefully these changes will help the Brewers return to the playoffs next season. I can’t wait another 26 years.

Milwaukee Brewers Update for 2009

There is always next year for Milwaukee Brewers fans and still a few Milwaukee Brewers tickets to be scanned at Miller Park. Unfortunately, this season the Brewers weren’t lucky enough to make it to the playoffs like last year. If you take out the so-so pitching staff, it seems that they had all of their cards in place and fans behind them until the last half of the season. The month of September seemed to be an increasing downfall for the team with only 13 wins of their 27 games played. All things were beautiful until after the All Star break. Last night the Brewers took on the Colorado Rockies again after a 7-5 loss the night prior to that.

One thing Brewers fans have to keep their spirits up as the season comes to an end is the many accomplishments of Prince Fielder. Specifically he was just noted as the only Iron Man left, meaning he is the only major league player to have started all 153 games this season so far. It’s hard to imagine the strength, determination and drive it takes to deal with the aches and pains accumulated throughout a season and never ask for, or need a day off.
Brewer’s first baseman Prince Fielder also should be noted for his great stats and ranking this season. His batting average thus far is .297/.406 OBP which ranks him at 6th in the National League. He also managed to rank 3rd in the National League for scoring 43 home runs. With the Milwaukee Brewers facing two more games against the Rockies it is then the final three games against the Cardinals this weekend, we hope for the best and support the team, and hope for playoff time next season.
