Brewers Look to Improve Pitching Roster | Ticket King Inc.


Ticket King
The Milwaukee Brewers currently feel that their starting rotation needs help, and in terms of budget Milwaukee is tapped. So here are some low-cost options for the Brewers to consider via trade.

Wade LeBlanc/LHP/Mariners- The Seattle Mariners raced out to a fast start to begin 2019, but have quickly fallen back to earth, and now sit at 23-30, good for last place in the American League West. LeBlanc is performing well and could be added to the Brewers rotation for the stretch run.

Trevor Cahill/RHP/Angels- So far this season, Cahill is 2-4 with a 6.43 ERA. He is much better than those numbers suggest and the Angels are probably not going anywhere this season.

Mike Minor/LHP/Rangers- The Texas Rangers are 26-25, good for second place in the American League West. There is no way in the world they are going to keep this up though. Minor is having a great season, his best in a long time, currently sitting at 5-3 with a 2.64 ERA.

Drew Smyly/LHP/Rangers- Minor’s current teammate, Smyly, is another pitcher whose numbers so far in 2019 aren’t really telling of the type of pitcher he is. Smyly’s style would fit well in a ballpark like Milwaukee’s.

Merrill Kelly/SP/Diamondbacks- Kelly looks to be the guy they should really consider. He currently sits at 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA so far this season, not too good, but not horrible either. It would cost little to trade for him and he would add little to the payroll.

"Bold" Predictions for the 2019 MLB Season | Ticket King Inc.


MLB 2019
The 2019 MLB season is underway. Before we get too far in, let’s look at some potential outcomes for the season and answer them with our best guess.

1. The American League Central champion will finish with less than 85 wins- Just to quickly note, 81 wins is good for a .500 season. The AL Central enters 2019 as the weakest of the six divisions by a large margin. The Indians are still the favorites, but they are not as strong as they used to be. This division is up for grabs, and the winner could finish with less than 85 wins. Answer - Probably

2. The National League Cy Young Award winner will not be a “household name”- Baseball fans all know the household names, Max Scherzer, Clayton Kershaw, Jacob DeGrom, etc. But, there are a lot of young talented arms across the league- Chris Paddack, Eric Lauer, Kyle Freeland, Walker Buehler, Dakota Hudson, Corbin Burnes, Freddie Peralta, Max Fried, Sean Newcomb, Kyle Wright, Aaron Nola, etc. None of the household names enter 2019 with positive outlooks except Kershaw. Answer - Maybe

3. Somebody else besides the Astros will win the American League West- This is the tightest grip on a division we’ve seen by one team in quite some time. But, as we have seen in the past, David can knock down Goliath in sports. Remember the Giants-Patriots Super Bowl? Or how about when the eighth seeded Golden State Warriors took out the top seeded Dallas Mavericks, owners of the league’s best record? However, those were one game contests in the playoffs, one series, and not the MLB. This is a 162, game season. Answer - No.

4. The Baltimore Orioles will win less than 50 games- The Orioles are in the early stages of an all out rebuild. This is not a good team. In fact, this is a team that just isn’t ready for prime time. Buck Showalter might very well retire mid-season, and the Orioles will stop caring after he does. Answer - Maybe

5. The Phillies will miss the playoffs in Bryce Harper’s first season- Yes, we know all about all of the free agency moves the Phillies have made the last couple of years, Harper, Andrew McCutchen, Jake Arrieta, etc. But, we’ve seen this story before in sports. Big free agency splashes does not necessarily equate success. Answer - Yes.
