SnoTapWI Top Five: Best Brewers Series on 2020 Schedule
Milwaukee Brewers have a schedule. Some cynics might say after Monday’s snafus that this will be only a collector’s item and the games will not actually get played. I don’t like to live in that world. Rather, I’m getting excited about potential baseball to watch over the next few months. The sports world will be on fire starting the last week of July and likely not stopping for a long time. This is the 2020 Brewers schedule. I’ve done the job of picking out the five best series for the Brewers this season.
5.White Sox-Brewers Aug 3-6: Brewers will do a split series against their former rivals from Chicago’s southside. They will play two at home then two on the road. White Sox were my pick for an up-and-coming team last season, and I may have been a year early. They are a team to watch this season. It might be beneficial for the Brewers that they’re catching them early rather than later.
4. Reds-Brewers Aug 7-10: Cincinnati Reds are the sexy team in baseball. Lot of people are jumping on the Reds bandwagon this year. Milwaukee welcomes them in mid-August for a three-game weekend series. This could be a tone-setter for the Brewers. Reds are trying to rise up and take the place of Milwaukee for the last couple of years. This will also be the return of Mike Moustakas to Miller Park.
3. Brewers-Twins Aug 18-20: There is legit hype around the Minnesota Twins this season. Some believe they can be a World Series team. That feels a bit nuts with teams like New York Yankees and Houston Astros. Yet the Twins have both a powerful offense with a good pitching staff. Brewers play them six times in two weeks. Trying to go 3-3 in that stretch will be crucial.
2. Brewers-Cubs Jul 24-26: It is the start of the season. Of course, this is making the list. You cannot leave this off if you’re making a list of potential series for the Brew Crew. Cubs will be fielding a new look with their manager David Ross. Their team is mostly the same, but we’ll see if Chicago does things differently under Ross versus Joe Maddon. You have to believe this will be a hard first year for Rossy.
1. Cardinals-Brewers Sep 16-18: You may notice this isn’t the home opener. Nope, it’s a Monday-Wednesday series with St. Louis. Milwaukee will get Chicago then St. Louis at home in mid-September. There is a good chance that one of those two teams will be leading the division. That is the time for Milwaukee to make one final push. If I know my Crew in September, they’ll be a part of that.
Cannot wait to see the Brewers out there in two weeks.
