The week in review: The Milwaukee Brewers were at home this past week to face the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds. The Pirates went to work with wins by scores of 6-3 and 4-1. The Crew salvaged the series with a 3-1 win, and then took game one of the Reds series by a score of 5-4. Cincinnati won the two remaining games to close out the weekend. Going into Monday’s action the Brewers are still in fourth place in the NL Central with a 70-86 record, 29.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs. I predicted a 71-91 record this year. With six games left I hope they win a few more and prove me wrong!
The passing of Jose Fernandez has come as a great shock and a huge blow to the baseball community. Teammates, coaches, competitors, and fans have all been at a loss for words after the news broke yesterday.
I too have just been in a little bit of a daze. I never met Jose, never watched him play in person, but he was a part of the baseball community/family. Baseball brings strangers together, and when a talented player, and by all accounts amazing person, dies way to young it affects the entire baseball family.

Ian Anderson is 6’3″ 170′ 18-year-old out of Shenendehowa High School in Rexford, New York. He was selected third overall by the Braves in the 2016 MLB Draft. He has a hard fastball with growing offspeed pitches. He currently can throw 90-94 with a potential to add more velocity. He has a big gap between the speed in his off-speed pitches and has room to create two pitches out of his curveball.
He has some red flags regarding injury potential and needs to clean up his mechanics and generate more energy up the chain in his lower half. He has lightning quick arm speed that helps compensate at the moment. When fully matured and refined he could be a real ace.
