Episode 150 | The Lauer Bauer Power Hour
Jaymes, Brad, and Paul talk about the most disappointing Brewers so far as well as the relative success of the pitching staff. The gang attempts what would ultimately prove to be a successful reverse jinx by criticizing essentially everyone who did anything well against Sonny Gray on Sunday. Finally, they talk about what exactly MLB plans to do with the Cardinals now that they can't possibly play enough games to really qualify for a legitimate playoff spot, and point out that they have, as of now, eight fewer wins than the Cubs while holding second place in the division. I mean it's just absurd.   Support the podcast on Patreon and receive the Monthly Minor League Extra and Weekly Packers Preview. Save 20% in the Karben4 webstore with the promo code MKETailgate.

Discussion also included Lorenzo Cain's decision to opt out, who will fill in for him in center, what caught our notice the first 6 games and how the team can get it's farm system back on track.  Support the podcast on Patreon and receive the Monthly Minor League Extra and Weekly Packers Preview.

Episode 148 | Send Me My Head If I'm Decapitated
It may have seemed unlikely to ever happen so often over the last few months, but the Milwaukee Brewers actually played baseball games that counted in the standings this week. We discussed the somewhat mixed results of their starting pitchers so far, the greatness of Lorenzo Cain and Kyle Hendricks, how the lineup might change once they start seeing lefty starters in Pittsburgh and why we hope the change to the playoff format isn't permanent.

Episode 143 | Manfred Lite vs Manfred Extra
Rob Manfred continued his subtle dance of bad faith negotiating this week when he claimed he had the "framework" of a deal with Tony Clark, then owners threw a hissy fit when the union countered their proposal, all while the number of Covi-19 cases continue to spike in both states that host spring training, throwing the whole enterprise into question. We talked all about that, about Manfred's future in MLB, Garrett Mitchell's immediate future and the potential for expansion teams and realignment. Finally, we discussed our favorite non-Brewers growing up.  Support the podcast on Patreon and receive the Monthly Minor League Extra and Weekly Packers Preview.

We talked all about that, whether most owners even like baseball or if it's just an investment, and just how badly did MLB screw up back in March. Then it was onto an extended discussion of the Brewers five picks from this week's amateur draft, your obligatory European soccer question and Jaymes' favorite color.

Episode 138 | Bryan and Rad In The Morning
MLB ownership submitted an offer to the MLBPA on Monday that would force them to take a major cut in pay from their agreed upon deal in March and the players aren't having any of it and neither are Jaymes, Paul or Ryan. The guys went on to discuss how this proposal was really a stealthy way to finally impose the owners dream salary cap, how it does little to nothing practically to actually get baseball on the field and how it's likely just setting the union up to take the fall in the public's eye if no baseball is able to be played in 2020. After that, it was onto the owners decision to unilaterally impose a 5 round MLB draft this June, and the inevitable postponement of the 2021 World Baseball Classic.  Support the podcast on Patreon and receive the Monthly Minor League Extra and Weekly Packers Preview.

Episode 121 | We Have News
After 121 episodes with Steve, JP and Ryan as the primary hosts of Milwaukee's Tailgate, the time has come for some changes. Both Steve and JP have decided to step away from the weekly grind and will no longer be regular members of the podcast. This week's episode is a goodbye to that era, but also features discussions about the slow holiday weeks, how the third base and bullpen situations might still change, and of course, a few arguments and laughs.  After some initial hesitation to continue on without them, Ryan decided to reach out to a few people to team up to carry on. That team came together so quickly and seamlessly that going forward became a no-brainer of a decision. So, while this will be the last episode with the original cast, this will not be the final episode of Milwaukee's Tailgate.  The new group joining Ryan are all familiar Brewers online presences as well as veterans of MKE Tailgate. Jaymes L. has been writing on the Brewers at various websites for over a decade and will take over in Steve's role as host.
