Milwaukee’s Tailgate Podcast: What can be done to help offense, Luis Urias’ defensive struggles and ranking David Stearns’ trades

It was another frustrating week for the Brewers, and Luis Urias’ struggles have us wondering where that trade ranks in David Stearns’ tenure

The Brewers have Monday off after another rocky week, but are still hanging around above .500 and within striking distance of the top of the division as we enter the second half of May.

The (lack of) offense was once again the culprit for some painful Brewers viewing in the last week. In this week’s episode of the Milwaukee’s Tailgate podcast, we talk about whether there’s any hope for the offense improving after Sunday’s outburst, Omar Narvaez back in the lineup and Christian Yelich nearing a return.

We also talk about Luis Urias’ struggles on defense, whether there’s any remorse over choosing him over Orlando Arcia, and where the Urias and Eric Lauer for Trent Grisham and Zach Davies swap ranks among David Stearns’ worst trades (although it is admittedly early).
