Milwaukee Beavers Seek Mates
Entering its 25th year as a franchise, the Milwaukee Beavers Baseball Club is seeking a few new mates. After having appeared in three consecutive championships at the 18+ level and advancing deep in to the playoffs in the 28+ league, the team is looking for a few key players to help them on the field and with bar tabs.
If you are looking to play some serious baseball, make good friends and have a great time, then this might be the team for you. Find out about playing with the Beavers at www.MilwaukeeBeavers.com
Builders take 1st Rock League Baseball Title
2013 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
2013 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.
Beavers Rock The Rock
This past week The Rock put up nearly a complete slate of daytime games. The fields were amazing and several great match-ups came down to the wire. Jarrett Gates and Rob Tschimperle starred for the Milwaukee Beavers as both teams in the club opened 1-0 in close games. Gates blasted 2 home runs for the Over 18 Beavers, while Tschimperle led the Over 28 Beavers throwing a 2 hitter and leading at the plate.

Fearless MLB American League Predictions
Oh 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
Tis 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.
