Milwaukee Brewers

I love Baseball-Reference.com’s Play Index.

We’ve had meetups at Busch for various events, we’ve invaded Pujols 5 for an evening – but this was an opportunity to ask and learn from each other with randomly selected pairings.

The Cardinals are set to square off once again with the Milwaukee Brewers today, after a thrilling 5-4 comeback win last night. Nick Stavinoha? Really? Anyways, we’ve got Jaime Garcia making his first start today, which all of us at PitchersHitEighth have been anxiously awaiting (Honkin’ for Jaime). Milwaukee is sending ace Yovani Gallardo to [...]

The Cardinals head to Milwaukee tonight to take on the team that swept St. Louis in the final three regular season games of 2009. Both teams took two of three in their respective opening-season series, and this weekend could be a rather significant matchup, as many picked Milwaukee to be one of St. Louis’ main [...]

In an effort to put a new spin on making preseason predictions this year, we decided to get outside input from those who know the division best – other folks writing about the NL Central.  It just so happens this falls in line with the United Cardinal Bloggers’ 2010 Predictions project as well, so two [...]
