September has been Craig Counsell and the Brewers’ time to shine the last couple seasons. Is there another postseason run in the team’s future for Craigtember this year (along with Counsell getting his revenge on St. Louis’ Mike Schildt for stealing last year’s Manager of the Year award)?
You’d certainly hope so, considering the expanded playoff field this year. In this week’s episode, we talk about the Brewers’ playoff chances, the 10 remaining games against the Cardinals in the last few weeks of the season, a defense of Big Dan Vogelbach, and some of the attention Corbin Burnes and Devin Williams are starting to get nationally.
Take a listen below.
This week @JaymesL @BadgerNoonan & @RDTopp discussed whether or not Corbin Burnes is now the staff ace, the Smoak DFA & D Williams ROY chances. Also included is a discussion with @GoldenSombrero about the return for Phelps and Phil Bickford's callup. https://t.co/34tQwVcNi8— MKE Tailgate Podcast Network (@MKETailgate) September 7, 2020
