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 rainouts 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 have some things to look forward to in 2014. With Corey Hart becoming a free agent, we don’t know who will play first base, and with the emergence of Scooter Gennett, the Brewers might have a second baseman that can replace the slumping Rickie Weeks.
Brewers Look To Improve In 2014
Yovani Gallardo is sure to return for 2014, along with Kyle Lohse and Wily Peralta. Gallardo found his sweet spot in the final two months of the season, and Lohse is already looking forward to spring training. Backing up those three starting pitchers might be Marco Estrada, Johnny Hellweg, Jimmy Nelson, or Tyler Thornburg. There are certainly some powerful pitchers on that list, but the keys to success would be that more than one of them will find a way to become a reliable starter.
Corey Hart may be the answer to the Brewers open spot at first base. Yes, Hart has had major surgery on both knees, and he did sit out the entire season, but he’s willing to negotiate for a chance to stay in Milwaukee. Can he return with the same power that we have seen over the years? Moving him to a permanent spot at first base might be just the ticket for the Brew Crew.
Finally, having Ryan Braun come back without the cloud of suspicion hanging over his head can only mean good things for Milwaukee. Braun has made a huge effort to make things right with Brewers fans. Will he be embraced in 2014? We have yet to see how things pan out with Braun.
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.
