Milwaukee Brewers Seats at Miller Park
Miller Park stands as one of the most enjoyable places to watch baseball. With the retractable roof, there are no more rain outs or frigid games in the early and late months of the baseball season. Miller Park seating varies from field diamond box seating, all the way to seats in “Bernie’s Terrace.” We carry all the best Brewers tickets, for all the games.
The Brewers made it to the post season in 2008 and 2011. The 2008 season marked the first time in over two decades where Brewers fans and players didn’t just sit on the sidelines and watch other teams participate in the playoffs.
Sadly, Milwaukee lost to Philadelphia in the first round. In 2011, the Brewers took the division title, and dispatched the Diamondbacks in the first round of the playoffs. It was in round two where the team struggled, and lost to the Cardinals.
There were high hopes for Milwaukee in 2013, but it was not to be. By the All Star break, Milwaukee was too far behind in the standings to mount a comeback.
For the Brewers, 2013 was a rough year. Injuries and off the field distractions took their toll on the organization. Mat Gamel struggled to stay healthy, Corey Hart sat out the entire year, and Ryan Braun admitted to using PED. The suspension of Braun was the proverbial nail in the coffin for the Brewers in 2013.
Milwaukee parted ways with the struggling John Axford, in exchange for Michael Blazek. St. Louis and Milwaukee inked a deal that sent Kyle Lohse to Milwaukee, in exchange for the Brewers’ first round draft pick. Lohse was a solid performer during the season, but will it pay off in the long run?
The Brewers had some spark late in the season. Their bullpen came on strong, and the team found a way to win. Still, the surge was way too late for any hopes of making the playoffs.
At least the Brewers fans had some things to look forward to in 2015. With Corey Hart becoming a free agent, he moved on to another club. With the emergence of Scooter Gennett, the Brewers thought that they found a second baseman that replaced the slumping Rickie Weeks.
Brewers Looked to Improve in 2015
2015 started out as an attempt by the Milwaukee Brewers to hang on to what was once a stronger team. Following what became a disastrous start, it was clear that it was time to rebuild the ball club, and it would have to happen under a new leader. Doug Melvin, the longtime general manager of the Brewers, decided to retire at the end of the season, but on his way out, he was able to do a decent job of getting the Brewers started in their rebuilding effort, so to speak. Before the trade deadline, Melvin was able to trade away Aramis Ramirez, Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Broxton, and Geraldo Parra. The trades allowed the Brewers to play a lot of young players in August and September, and Milwaukee finished the season 68-94, good for fourth place in the National League Central.
The first order of business for the Brewers in the off-season was to find a new general manager. Milwaukee ended up hiring the young David Stearns, the assistant general manager of the Houston Astros, and the right hand man of Jeff Lunhow, who undertook the massive Astros rebuild. Stearns will be the man who hopes to revive the Milwaukee Brewers. So far this off-season Stearns has been able to trade first baseman Adam Lind and relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez. Still on the block left for him to move are shortstop Jean Segura, left fielder Khris Davis, and catcher Jonathan Lucroy, for the right price. This upcoming season for the Brewers will be their first full season into their rebuild.
Brewers Versus Cubs
When it’s Brewers versus Cubs, Miller Park is the place to be. See our Brewers take on their division rivals at home or on the road. While a few Cubs fans will make the drive up to Milwaukee, Brewers fans will prevail. As soon as the Brewers moved to the National League, the rivalry came quite naturally. Tickets for Brewers versus Cubs games move fast.
Brewers Versus Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals first encountered the Milwaukee Brewers back in the 1982 World Series. Once Milwaukee moved to the national league, the Brewers and Cardinals would face each other many times many times, over every season to come. Milwaukee swept the Cardinals in the first ever series. That was back in 1997. Since then, each team has taken their turn at leading the other for the overall season record. Most notable was in 2008, when the Brewers would win ten of their fifteen meetings. On the flip side, 2013 was the worst year for the Brewers, when it comes to face to face meetings against the Cardinals. St. Louis leads the overall matchup 144-109.
As we move through the 2016 season, the theme is rebuild for the Milwaukee Brewers. The change actually began last season, when they started to trade some of their major league talent, such as Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Broxton, Mike Fiers, and others. Those moves continued this last off season when they moved the likes of Francisco Rodriguez, Jean Segura, Adam Lind, Khris Davis, and others. That Brewers roster change culminated prior to the trade deadline this season, when the Brewers moved catcher Jonathan Lucroy to the Texas Rangers for future prospects.
The results may not be seen on the field right now, but that's okay. It's all about tomorrow for these Brewers at the moment. But, the Brewers still have work to do. They need a true centerfielder going into the future in their organization, which they don't have right now. They need an ace and a number two arm in their organization, which they don't have right now. They have a bunch of great prospects, and what they also need is their own version of Kris Bryant. Fortunately, the Brewers have time.
