The Brewers’ offense started to perform more like we expected it to in the last week, thanks to the debut of Luis Urias, a sudden hot streak by Justin Smoak and Christian Yelich hitting more like Christian Yelich.
We talk about that in this week’s episode, and as it turns out, the Podcast Jinx may have been used for good once again, as Keston Hiura snapped a long draught with a big 3-run home run on Sunday after we recorded this episode, talking about how much he continued to struggle.
We also cover the impressive bullpen to this point, whether the Brewers should try tanking this year, and whether or not the ball is juiced in 2020.
In which @JaymesL, @BadgerNoonan and @RDTopp discuss the Brewers series against the Cubs, who's hot and who's not, and whether the team should be tanking. Also included is an excerpt of our recent interview with @BaseballAmerica’s @CarlosACollazo. https://t.co/Bc4E32gf3D— MKE Tailgate Podcast Network (@MKETailgate) August 17, 2020
