The Brewers By Elo Rating

FiveThirtyEight followed their fascinating NBA and NFL franchise value Elo Ratings by introducing such ratings for MLB franchises.

Last week, in this space, I wrote about Dave Dombrowski’s Achilles Heel in the wake of the Tigers letting go of their long-tenured General Manager. Yesterday, another long-term General Manager was relieved of his duties, as the Brewers have moved Doug Melvin “into an advisory role”, opening up their GM position for the first time since 2002. Like Dombrowski’s start in Detroit...

A look back at Brewers' trades in July under Melvin

If the history of Doug Melvin's tenure as general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers leaves any indication, the odds of a trade happening before Thursday's non-waiver deadline are high.

The Milwaukee Brewers are in need of some changes this off-season.  So far this off-season the Brewers haven’t been making any big moves unlike other clubs around the league.
