    The Kolten Wong/Jesse Winker trade and other offseason moves (12.06.2022)

    With the Winter Meetings upon us, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Curt Hogg and host JR Radcliffe check in with the Milwaukee Brewers, looking specifically at the moves they've already made. Are they just cutting salary? What's the evaluation on the Kolten Wong/Jesse Winker exchange and the decisions to part with Hunter Renfroe and Brent Suter? Who should the Brewers be specifically targeting in the days ahead? Do we believe that Milwaukee will hold onto their top two pitching stars?

    Eight players who'd look good in a Brewers uniform (11.10.2022)

    Brewers reporter Curt Hogg and host JR Radcliffe look at the Brewers offseason, including a couple moves already made (Kolten Wong is coming back, Brad Boxberger is not) and players who'd fit the Milwaukee roster in 2023, some via free agency and some via trade.

    David Stearns steps down as Brewers president of baseball operations (10.27.2022)

    David Stearns steps down as Brewers president of baseball operations (10.27.2022)

    It's an emergency podcast! Host JR Radcliffe and Journal Sentinel reporter Curt Hogg discuss the shocking news that David Stearns was stepping down as the Milwaukee Brewers president of baseball operations. He'll stay with the team through 2023, leaving the keys to general manager Matt Arnold going forward. What's behind the announcement, what does it mean for the way the Brewers conduct business, and does this mean Stearns is definitely on his way to the Mets? And what do we know about Matt Arnold?

    The things that went wrong in 2022 for the Milwaukee Brewers, plus a chat with Wisconsin native Daulton Varsho (10.10.2022)

    The things that went wrong in 2022 for the Milwaukee Brewers, plus a chat with Wisconsin native Daulton Varsho (10.10.2022)

    Brewers reporter Curt Hogg and host JR Radcliffe dig into the things that will stand out about the 2022 season; namely, the things that went wrong. How did a 95-win team with many of the same contributors shrink to an 86-win team one year later? How big does the Josh Hader trade loom? What happened to the bullpen? What about the offense? Christian Yelich? The team's offseason approach? 

    Then, JR chats with Daulton Varsho, a Marshfield and UW-Milwaukee product who finished his strong 2022 season in Milwaukee with the Arizona Diamondbacks (52:30).

    Nightmare week effectively ends Brewers playoff hopes for 2022 (10.02.2022)

    Nightmare week effectively ends Brewers playoff hopes for 2022 (10.02.2022)

    A nightmare week for the Milwaukee Brewers, specifically three gut-wrenching losses in four games against the Marlins, has all but ended the disappointing 2022 season. Journal Sentinel reporter Curt Hogg and podcast host JR Radcliffe again take stock of what went wrong and how they can ultimately explain a 95-win team bringing back many of the same players and performing so much more poorly. How does Milwaukee fix this going forward, both on the field and in the stands, where the team drew fewer than 32,000 fans for each of its three weekend games against the Marlins. Is there anything other than the Josh Hader trade that will be seen as the signature moment of 2022? How would they evaluate the front office and manager Craig Counsell this season?

    Do the Brewers have enough to make one last stand? (09.26.2022)

    Do the Brewers have enough to make one last stand? (09.26.2022)

    An above-average week is still not enough as the Brewers head into the final nine games of the season facing, essentially, a 2 1/2-game deficit against the Philadelphia Phillies. There's hope, but it's fleeting. Ill-timed home runs have cost the team's deadline bullpen acquisitions and further cemented the Josh Hader trade as the turning point of the season. Corbin Burnes hasn't been his usual self. The Brewers are healthy in their rotation finally, but how will they be used in crunch time? Kolten Wong has a big three-homer game, adding to his big second half offensively ... but does his decline in defense make him unlikely to be back next year? Plus, can you name the team's batting-average leader? Would you believe he also (technically) leads the team in ERA?
