Chase The Ace Dominates The Pirates

I went to a Brewers game in early June with Chase Anderson facing the San Francisco Giants. A couple rows behind me a Brewers fan said ‘Yanno Chase Anderson is our ace this season’, and I sort of scoffed at that idea. Looking at it

Is Detroit A Legitimate Threat To Green Bay?

Detroit Lions lead the NFC North after two weeks in the season with a 2-0 record, and they’ve looked good doing it. Detroit beat up on Arizona especially in the second half, and their defense took care of business handling the meek New York Giants

Kevin Durant’s Social Media Nightmare

Late on Sunday night, Kevin Durant caught himself in a complete shitshow with social media. He likes to use Twitter as much as any athlete right now, but Durant can show himself to be a little thin-skinned at times. Durant or his team outed themselves

Suter Shuts Down The Pirates For A Major Win

Brent Suter is having a standout 2017 season. He’s not going to be on a watch list for 2018, but there’s probably room for Suter to get a chance at the starting rotation next season if Milwaukee sticks with Josh Hader in the bullpen. I’m

Star Ratings: Packers vs. Falcons

The overreactions are coming in hot and heavy based off the game against Atlanta. We should have saved “Overreaction Monday’ for this game, not Seattle. The headlines are “Atlanta is the team to beat in the NFC” and “Packers aren’t in Atlanta’s league.” First one

Badger Musings: Wisconsin Sends a Message to Big Ten

When I checked my phone to see if Wisconsin had beat BYU on Saturday, it was to my surprise that the Badgers won 40-6 in crushing fashion. Watching the game back over the past day or so, I could not be more impressed with what

NFL in Los Angeles Takes Another L

In the first weekend where Los Angeles had two NFL teams for the first time since 1994, it went off with a whimper. Not only did both the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers lose their home openers, but their attendance was woeful. Between the two

Brewers Take a Much-Needed Series vs. Marlins

After Saturday night, Milwaukee Brewers were in a must-win situation. Chicago Cubs were rolling against the St. Louis Cardinals, and Colorado Rockies had just put up 16 runs on Saturday. Milwaukee could ill afford to lose two of three to the Miami Marlins. That did

Injuries Pile Up As Falcons Dismantle Packers

Going into Sunday’s game, many people thought things may be different between Green Bay-Atlanta. This was the third time in a year these teams would be playing each other, and the Packers were hellbent to change things. That did not happen. Rather, the Falcons put

Brewers Magic Finally Hits Milwaukee

If you’ve listened to the Tapping The Keg Podcast, we talked this week about how this Brewers team did not really have many dramatics this year. Eric Thames had a walkoff homer to beat San Diego, but there hasn’t been much thrills this season. Last
