Builders take 1st Rock League Baseball Title

Rock League Baseball Champs2013 started out slow at The Rock as construction and rain caused several delays. However, as summer warmed up so did the baseball. 

Early on it was apparent that two of the Milwaukee Baseball League's perennial top teams could be on a collision course in the newly formed Rock League Baseball. By mid-August that is just what happened as both teams moved through the playoffs to face each other in the Championship for a rematch of the 2011 MBL Championship won by the Builders. This time it would be in a three-game series for the inaugural Rock League Baseball season championship.

In game 1 of the three game set however, the Builders came from behind in game 1 defeating the Beavers 4-3 with a walk-off win.  In game two, the Beavers could not quite dig themselves out of a 5 to 1 deficit and fell  6 to 4.

The Brown Deer Builders win their second championship in three seasons and the first Rock League Baseball Championship. Congratulations to the Builders on their 3rd Championship in the past decade.

A Prescription for the Brewers - Who Are Closer Than People Think

Wei-Chung Wang2013 Milwaukee Brewers baseball can be summed up in one word: frustrating.

From injuries to ineffective early pitching to suspension, the 2013 season was one of incredible bad luck, bad juju and outright bad baseball. Fixing things for 2014 to the point of being a legitimate playoff contender will be difficult. The team certainly has enough talent to be competitive with a few tweaks, but is that what Milwaukee wants to be, just a competitive team hovering around .500 or maybe a few games better?

I am a former season ticket holder and want to come back. Before I do, I have one request for Brewers brass: 

Don't build to be competitive, build to be a cyclical championship contender.

Fearless MLB American League Predictions

Miggy and PrinceOh the good 'ol American League. Home of the designated hitter, the Yankees vs Red Sox and Bernie Brewer. Wait, Bernie Brewer is in the National League now. And the Houston Astros are in the American League. Good grief. As they say though, the more things change, the more they stay, oh wait, I guess they don't stay the same. In the American League, expect last year's winners to be this year's winners.

Expect some surprises in the AL. A lot of people are counting Boston out, but that's probably a bad idea. Cleveland has real leadership and real talent. Oakland, perennially overlooked shouldn't be again.

Also, some new faces, per our Fantasy Sleeper run down will make you sit up and take notice. 

Here's the rundown of what you should expect:

Fearless MLB National League Predictions


Harper Going YardTis the weekend for Major League Baseball Predictions. In 2013, a few things stay the same, and a few are different, but all is baseball glory. Watch out for the Nationals they seem primed to do great, but don't forget the Braves, Dodgers, Giants, Reds and Cardinals.

With big talent at the top of each division, look for grouping throughout the league with two or three top teams in each division putting up 90+ win seasons and the bottom feeders in the 60s. Don't look for too many .500 teams, there won't be many this year.

Count on some new faces to step up as well, as we mentioned in our fantasy sleepers section.

So, without further adieu, here are the picks you need. Bet the house on 'em.

Un-News

David Price Headed to Milwaukee

David PriceMultiple unconfirmed reports appear to indicate that the Milwaukee Brewers are in the hunt for Tampa Bay Marlins star pitcher David Price. 

Price is one of the American League's most dominating pitchers the past several years. In 2012, Price won the Cy Young award for being the most old school pitcher in the American League. He put up an .800 winning percentage with 20 wins, with a 2.56 ERA and 205 strike outs. Those sorts of numbers rarely have occurred since the advent of Nautilus equipment, protein shakes and delicious testosterone lozenges.
