After months of waiting, Opening Day is almost here (we think, at least).
The season was put on hold the last time we planned on previewing the Brewers’ season the Milwaukee’s Tailgate podcast, so our luck hasn’t been great so far. But we managed to at least record the season preview this time, and four months of waiting meant we got a little chatty and ended up going almost 2.5 hours.
So instead of making you listen to our voices for that long (we’re firm believers that podcasts shouldn’t have 2-hour episodes, nobody has time for that), we broke up our big season preview into two parts.
Part one is out today and covers all things Brewers, with in-depth looks at the bullpen (does Corey Knebel’s return let Craig Counsell use Josh Hader more effectively again? Who’s going to fill the bulk of middle innings we might see with shorter starts?), rotation (Who’s going to break out to be the #2 behind Brandon Woodruff? Is this Corbin Burnes’ last shot as a starter?) and lineup (is Keston Hiura going to take more DH at-bats than we thought if his elbow continues to be a problem? Is there a chance Omar Narvaez’s bat means we won’t miss Yasmani Grandal THAT much?).
Part two will be out later this week and include our preview for the rest of the league, including our division and playoff predictions.
Our BIG SEASON PREVIEW went so long we split it up into two parts! Part one is up now, with a preview of the 2020 #Brewers by position. Part two will air on Wednesday.@JaymesL @BadgerNoonan@BrewCrewBlue @RDTopphttps://t.co/nWqZJADDjT— MKE Tailgate Podcast Network (@MKETailgate) July 20, 2020
