HOLD ON FOLKS, THE BREWERS HAVE PLAYED ONE WEEK

My thoughts on the Brewers start.

Brewers

Baseball – Brewers and fantasy – is off an running and I can’t wait to sit in front of the TV or go out to the ball park and watch.

I predicted the Brewers would win between 68-72 games last year in the first year of the rebuild – and they won 73. Jonathan Villar, Hernan Perez, Carlos Torres, Junior Guerra and Zach Davies were good all season. Others like Keon Broxton, Wily Peralta, Chase Anderson and even Matt Garza had solid finishes.

For those fans who don’t understand the word ‘rebuild’ and there are a lot of you out there based on the ridiculous negative reaction of the 2-5 opening homestand, here’s what you should be looking for in Rebuild – Year 2.

1 – What players who did well last year are repeating their performances?

2 – What players have come down to earth?

3 – Who has shown signs of improvement?

4 – What have the new additions added?

***

1 – What players who did well last year are repeating their performances?

So far – of the players I mentioned – based on eight games – 8 games – Broxton, Torres,  Peralta and Anderson have been solid.

2 – What players have come down to earth?

Villar, Perez and Davies fall into this category and Guerra and Garza (surprise) got hurt. What does this mean after eight games?

Nothing.

For Villar to do what he did last season would have surprised me. I still think he will have a solid season offensively – 15 homers, 30+plus steals. What has shocked me is his struggles defensively at second base. That is a shock and has to turn around.

Perez has played good defense but is struggling at the plate. But once again I think he played over his head last season and if he comes down to earth some he is still valuable because of his tremendous versatility.

Davies is a control pitcher who hasn’t had any in his first two starts. He started slow last year. When he is precise, he is a solid No. 4 or No. 5 starter. If he can’t regain his control, forget it. The jury is out on Guerra and Garza (not really).

3 – Who has shown signs of improvement?

If he stays healthy, Domingo Santana has power and a great arm. But he can’t perform from the DL.

People need to understand that Orlando Arcia will become a better hitter – have some patience – but right now he is an absolutely outstanding defensive player with a cannon of an arm. His fielding is worth the price of admission. If you don’t think so, you don’t know baseball. Personally, I think he will eventually be a .270 hitter who can steal 20 bases.

I have liked Manny Pina since he came up and he has done a solid job with the bat and an excellent job defensively.

I have hope that Jimmy Nelson gets his act together. I really think he can pitch like he did at the beginning of last season and not at the end.

Jacob Barnes and Corey Knebel look like they have finally come around to what the Brewers are expecting.

4 – What have the new additions added?

What haven’t they?  Travis Shaw has been outstanding offensively and solid defensively. Jesus Aguilar got hot in spring training and carried it into the first week. He has also flashed some very impressive leather.

Eric Thames has sat some games to get Aguilar in the lineup, but also has the ability to play the corner outfield spots and has hit well.

Nick Franklin was a good addition and Kirk Nieuwenhuis did a nice job as a fill-in last year, but with all the outfield talent most of his playing time will be as a pinch-hitter, late-game replacement.

Jett Bandy has teamed with Pina to give the Brewers a solid catching combo. He handles pitchers well, throws out runners and displays some power.

Jhan Marinez was a solid pick-up last year and Jared Hughes was a good last-minute pickup and has performed well in week one, while I don’t think Tommy Milone would be on this team if he wasn’t left-handed, but I hope he performs.

Neftali Feliz has hit 100 mph on the radar gun and gotten off to a solid start. If he does well he will help this team and then be turned into some young talent at the trading deadline.

Old reliable

And then there is Ryan Braun, an important part of helping this team win now. Unless you get a ton back for him, I wouldn’t think of trading him.

So watch the players I have hit on and see what happens before you give up on the team after one week.

One thing is for sure – David Stearns and Craig Counsell will do all they can to change faces on this roster.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LANCERS REMAIN AT TOP OF MY RANKINGS, BUT IKE CLOSING IN

Here is a look at my final Brookfield, New Berlin and Wauwatosa Boys Rankings. I don’t base everything on just W-L record or head-to-head. A lot is based on how they are playing now.

Brookfield Central (20-2, 12-2, first) – The Lancers beat out New Berlin Eisenhower for the top spot, losing their finale to Menomonee Falls, 82-65, snapping a 10-game losing streak. There are worst things than losing a game before the playoffs, but it was the way they lost that was disappointing.

New Berlin Eisenhower (17-5, 12-4, second) – Coach David Scheidegger said people won’t want to play his team by the time the playoffs began and the veteran coach is right. The Lions have won 10 in a row and are 14-1 in their last 15 games. They are just a notch behind Central, the second-ranked team in the state coming into the week.

Wauwatosa East (12-10, 10-4, second) – Coach Tim Arndorfer’s Red Raiders are third because of their Greater Metro Conference record and finish. They are 2-6 outside of league play. The Red Raiders play good defense and have 9 players scoring between 4.4 and 10 points a game.

Wauwatosa West (12-10, 8-8, fourth) – The Trojans have too much talent to have such a disappointing record. They have lost 2 of 3 games going into the playoffs and they were 0-6 vs. Pewaukee, Eisenhower and Pius XI, the three teams above them in the West. Against the winning Woodland East teams they were 1-2, giving them a 1-8 record against winning conference teams.

Brookfield East (11-11, 7-7, fourth) – A tip of the cap to new coach Joe Rux, who had only one senior starter along with three sophomores and a junior freshman to work with. The Spartans were 4-20 and 0-14 last year.

New Berlin West (9-13, 3-13, sixth) – Coach Brandon Mattox continues to rebuild the Vikings program. They improved their overall record (5-19) from last year but their conference mark remained the same. They have not beaten a Woodland West team in a few years. Junior Joe Robey and freshman Desmond Polk give West a talented duo to continue the rebuild.

Change at top of my teams girls rankings

Here is my final New Berlin-Brookfield-Tosa girls rankings.

 

  1. New Berlin Eisenhower (17-5, 14-2, tied for first) – I’m giving the Lady Lions a slight edge because they just beat their crosstown rival on Friday and they are hotter than New Berlin West having won their final 8 games.
  1. New Berlin West (19-3, 14-2, tied for first) – The Lady Vikings have the best overall record of my ladies’ teams, but they’ve lost 2 of their final 3 games. They have the top seed in the post-season and might have an easier road – if there is such a thing.
  1. Brookfield Central (14-8, 10-4, tied for second) – Coach Mallory Liebl has done a fantastic job of keeping this banged up team together during an emotional season. They finished the season 9-1 and could easily have had a 10-game win streak.
  1. Wauwatosa East (16-6, 8-6, fourth) – The Red Raiders closed out with 4 wins in 5 games, but they helped their record with an 8-0 non-conference record. Brooklyn Blackburn has been on fire lately.
  1. Brookfield East (11-11, 6-8, sixth) – A talented team without a senior means good things next season. But they were a little disappointing this season. Coach Michael Goodman needs to find a true point guard.
  1. Wauwatosa West (8-14, 5-11, fifth) – Coach Gordon Nikolic has had a fine first season changing the culture for the Trojans.

 

 

 

 

If Ted Thompson doesn’t adjust, the Super Bowl is just a dream

The off-season is here and you will find Ted Thompson at the Combine Feb. 28-March 6. That’s where he will get a first-hand look at all the top prospects available in the April 27-29 NFL Draft. Of course, Thompson will draft and/or sign players who aren’t at the combine because that is one of his strengths.

But if the Packers are going to be a Super Bowl candidate in 2017, Thompson needs to do more if the Packers are going to do more than win another division title. The more important date to look at is Thursday, March 9, when free agency begins.

Ted usually looks to re-sign his own free agents and I agree with that if they are worth signing – and the price is right. Let’s take a look at who I think is worth re-signing and some of the free agents who would make the Packers a serious Super Bowl contender instead of a pseudo one.

OWN FREE AGENTS

Jared Cook – Hopefully he realizes that Aaron Rodgers is one of the main reasons he played well down the stretch and he doesn’t ask for a ridiculous amount of money. The Packers need a good tight end who can stretch the field to be successful – period.

T.J. Lang – The Packers lack leadership on the offensive line and that is one of the main things Lang provides, along with talent and the ability to play with pain, something some of the other players don’t have. This is an interesting case because of the off-season surgeries he needs. Will someone take a chance and give him a ridiculous offer? If everything is right, this Pro-Bowler needs to be paid.

Nick Perry – When he was healthy he had a solid season and should be re-signed – but only if the price is right. He got after the quarterback and he showed a tremendous amount of courage playing with only one hand.

Micah Hyde – I never thought I would say this, but the Packers need to re-sign him if they don’t go big-time in the FA market. He is the jack-of-all-trades, master of none and their secondary would have been worse that it was without his fine performance. Plus he returns kicks.

Eddie Lacy – How anyone can re-sign someone who blew up like a balloon IN HIS CONTRACT SEASON I will never know. But Thompson will do it if the price is right. It’s moves like this which make me think he is starting to lose his touch. Oh, BTW, he was injured AGAIN.

OTHERS JC Tretter has versatility and he is a must sign if Lang doesn’t. Believe it or not, if the price would be right, I would take Julius Peppers back for his 8 sacks and his leadership. Datone Jones had one more sack than I did this year so why would you re-sign him? Because Ted’s ego would find it hard to cut a former No. 1 instead of what’s doing best for the team.

FREE AGENT MARKET

Thompson is too cheap – yes that is the correct word – to sign a FA who would help get the Packers over the top. Yet every year they have salary cap money left over. Some of the more reasonable FA’s that would be available, but I couldn’t see TT doing anything but watching them sign with other teams.

CORNERBACKS – A.J. Bouye (Texans), Trumaine Johnson (LA Rams), Stephon Gilmore (Buffalo)

DEFENSIVE LINE – Calais Campbell (Arizona), Syl Williams (Denver).

LINEBACKER – Don’t’a Hightower (New England).

TALK IS CHEAP

From Mark Murphy down to Mike McCarthy, the Packers sell their naïve fans on their goal is the Super Bowl every year. They have what I feel is the best QB in the league skills-wise in Aaron Rodgers, yet they have one Super Bowl with him at the helm.

Now please understand, I don’t wear green & gold glasses, but I’m a Milwaukee season ticket holder, and I hope they win the Super Bowl every year.

But while most fans get excited about their 8 division titles – who cares!  I’m more disappointed in the 1 Super Bowl.

Why? Because I do not feel they do what they can every season to try and get better.

I’m hoping that changes.

Lady Vikings, Lancers leading my girls, boys rankings

GIRLS

New Berlin West (18-2, 13-1, first) – Pewaukee blew away the Lady Vikings and snapped a 16-game win streak. There are worst things that losing a game before the post-season.

New Berlin Eisenhower (14-5, 12-2, second) – Julia Hintz has carried the Lady Lions during their 5-game win streak.

Brookfield Central (11-7, 8-4, third) – 6-game win streak and senior forward Leah Swenson has stepped up last 6 games (11.3 points).

Brookfield East (10-10, 5-7, tied for fifth) – Have won 2 of their last 3 games. Need to get their act together before playoffs start.

Wauwatosa East (13-6, 6-6, fourth) – The Red Raiders have lost 4 of 5 games, but they should sweep their final three games if they play well. Johanna Taylor and Brooklyn Blackburn need a third offensive wheel for this team to be successful.

 Wauwatosa West (8-12, 5-9, fifth) – The Trojans have doubled their win total and have already won 2 more conference games than last year under new coach Gordon Nikolic. Working on a 3-game win streak.

BOYS

Brookfield Central (17-1, 10-1, first) – There is a different hero every night as the Lancers carry a 7-game winning streak going into their final 4 games. Andres Peralta-Werns and Cole Nau have led the way lately.

New Berlin Eisenhower (13-5, 9-4, third) – Dave Scheidegger said teams wouldn’t want to play his Lions before the season ends and he has been correct. Ike has won 6 in a row and 10 of 11 behind the efforts of Bryce Miller and Sullivan Kulju.

 Wauwatosa East (9-9, 7-4, third) – You never know what Red Raiders team will show up. They have gone 3-4 in the last 7 games with wins over Brookfield East, Menomonee Falls and Marquette. They have a winnable schedule in the next few weeks. Tosa East needs a go-to guy, which they don’t have.

Brookfield East (8-9, 6-5, fourth) – The Spartans youth is showing through as they have dropped 4 of 6 games, losing to a West Allis Central team they should have beaten last time out.

Wauwatosa West (10-8, 6-6, fourth) – The Trojans have lost 4 of 6 games and need to stop pointing fingers and start playing as a team under interim coach Pat McCabe. Three of their last four games are against winning teams. Let’s see what they are made of.

 New Berlin West (7-10, 3-10, sixth) – The Vikings will have their hands full in the 4 of the final 5 games (33-16, .673), being the favorite only against Port Washington.

 

Lancers still first in my boys poll, New Berlin schools heating up

  1. Brookfield Central (15-1, 8-1) – Central defeated Germantown and West Allis Central as Gage Malensek scored 33 and 29 points. West Allis Hale and Marquette is next on the schedule.
  2. New Berlin Eisenhower (11, 7-4) – Ike has won 4 in a row and 7 of 8 games, defeating Shorewood, Wauwatosa East and Greenfield last week. Bryce Miller (75 points) and Sullivan Kulju (52 points) led the way. Cudahy and Pius XI are coming up.
  3. Wauwatosa West (9-7, 5-5) – West crushed Cudahy but was clobbered by Brown Deer. Alou Dillon had 22 points and 9 rebounds while John Frank had 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals in the win. Dillon (25) and Tyrone Powell (23) scored big in the loss to the Flacons. Whitnall and Greendale are next.
  4. Wauwatosa East (8-8, 6-3) – The Red Raiders lost two of their last three games, losing Brookfield Central and New Berlin Eisenhower but defeating rival Marquette, 55-54. Nobody scored above 10 points in the two losses and NO stats were available online in the win over MUHS. Falls and Sussex Hamilton are next on the schedule.
  5. Brookfield East (7-8, 5-4) – The Spartans lost a close game to Menomonee Falls, 74-70, as Patrick Cartier had 26 points and Jake Graf had 18 to lead the scoring. Next up is Sussex Hamilton and West Allis Central.
  6. New Berlin West (7-8, 3-8) – Despite the loss of sophomore point guard Joe Robey to a leg injury, the Vikings have pulled together and won 3 in a row last week over South Milwaukee, Holmen and Shorewood. Hunter Pipik had 44 points and Fred Cottrell had 39 points in 3 games and freshman Desmond Polk had 27 vs Shorewood. Greenfield and Pewaukee are next for the Vikings.

 

 

Little change in My Girls Prep Basketball Rankings

GIRLS RANKING

New Berlin West (16-1, 11-0, first)

Tip of Sky Cap: First-year coach Collin Thompson has his team on a 14-game winning streak, as Alyssa (Chubby) Nelson (15.4 pts), Morgan Henrichs (8.1 points, 5.5 rebs, 4.5 assts) and Maddie Fritz (7.9 pts) lead the way along with great defense.

New Berlin Eisenhower (11-5, 9-2 in second)

Tip of Sky Cap: Sophomore Julia Hintz (13 pts, 5 assts), Katie Ludwig (9.4 pts, 3.8 rebs) and Hannah Plockelman (8.0 pts, 7 rebs, 2 assts) have been consistent during the 2-game win streak, with two winnable games on the horizon.

Brookfield Central (7-7, 5-4, tied for third).

Tip of Sky Cap: Senior Leah Swenson has stepped up to help out senior Caroline Busch and freshman Anna Mortag offensively. But the best news of all, senior Claire Haynes has worked hard to return after a bad back injury and her leadership and timely play has been important. She had two key assists and a steal in the final minutes in the 48-43 win over Divine Savior Holy Angels.

Brookfield East (9-9, 4-6 tied for sixth)

Tip of Sky Cap: junior Molly DeValkenaere has been a steady influence (13 pts, 7 rebs), but junior Emma Ralfs (9.6 pts, 5.0 rebs, 3.1 assts, 3 steals) has been playing an excellent, consistent floor game. Brookfield East finally snapped a 6-game losing streak last week.

Wauwatosa East (12-4, 5-4 tied for third)

Tip of Sky Cap: Sophomore Brooklyn Blackburn tops the team (15.2 pts, 8.7 rebs and senior Johanna Taylor (9.8 pts, 7.1 reb) have played well. But the Red Raiders have lost two straight and they have Divine Savior Holy Angels (twice) and Menomonee Falls coming up.

Wauwatosa West (5-12, 2-9 fifth)

Tip of Sky Cap: To Dasia Davis, who tops the team in pts (11.0), rebs (8.7) and assts (2.4). Trojans approaching last year’s Woodland West win total (3) with two of the next three games very winnable. West must improve their defense, though.

 

Jan. 25 Ranking my Boys Prep Basketball Teams

1. Brookfield Central (13-1, 7-1) – The Lancers lack of height is starting to come to light a little more, but they still only have one loss. But they have impressive wins over Wisconsin Lutheran (58-47), Menomonee Falls (78-75) and Wauwatosa East (59-53) in the last 10 days.

Gage Malensek has continued to show why he is one of the best players in the area, scoring 49 points (16.3 ppg) and hitting 24-of-25 free throws as Central puts the ball in his hands down the stretch.

Junior Andres Peralta-Werns continues to step up his game (14, 16, 15) and sophomore Cole Nau has chipped in with 7 rebounds, 4 assists vs. Wisco, 19 points vs Falls and 7 points and 6 rebounds vs Tosa East.

They host Germantown (6-7) in the Luke Homan Memorial Showcase on Saturday and former Brookfield Central coach Mark Adams will be honored in a pre-game ceremony at 3:45 p.m. The host West Allis Central on Feb. 1.

2. New Berlin Eisenhower (8-5, 5-4) – Ike is starting to get their act together. Coach Dave Scheidegger has 4 solid starters in guards Bryce Miller and Bryce Wesling and forwards Sullivan Kulju and Matt Rolefson and plenty of solid depth.

The Lions have won two of their last three games, beating Brookfield East and Wauwatosa West and losing to powerful Pewaukee in a close game. This week they have Shorewood and Greenfield on Friday and Tuesday in conference games and face Wauwatosa East in the Luke Homan Memorial Showcase on Saturday night at 9 p.m. That game could affect my rankings next week.

3. Wauwatosa West (8-6, 4-4) – West gets the benefit of the doubt because they beat Wauwatosa East, but after watching the Red Raiders almost beat Brookfield Central on Tuesday, this could be reversed.

Coach Craig Stelse’s guys lost a thriller at Pius XI (71-67) and dropped their second game to Eisenhower (71-60), so I won’t hold that against them. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why they can’t beat the Lions.

Up next for the Trojans are Cudahy (1-7) and Brown Deer (7-2), with the latter game being an extremely telling game.

5. Wauwatosa East (7-7, 5-3) – The Red Raiders have lost two of their last three games, losing to Marquette and Brookfield Central. They had a bad first half against the Hilltoppers and were never in the game. They could have beat Brookfield Central, but missed 14 contested lay-ups. They rallied in the second half to beat Brookfield East.

The Red Raiders will see what they are made of, because they face three tough games in a row against Eisenhower on Saturday before hosting Marquette on Tuesday and Menomonee Falls on Friday.

5. Brookfield East (7-7, 5-3) – The Spartans lost close games to Eisenhower and Tosa East and then blew out West Allis Hale so they played better than the scoreboard showed. They face Menomonee Falls on Tuesday and Sussex Hamilton on Feb. 2 and the young Spartans continue to get their act together.

6. New Berlin West (4-8, 1-8) – With the loss of sophomore point guard Joe Robey to a leg injury, this is not the same Vikings team. Senior Fred Cottrell has taken on the bulk of the scoring load.

The Vikings lost to Greenfield and Pius XI to extend their losing streak to three games as Cottrell had 31 points in the two games.

Next up are winnable games with South Milwaukee, Holman and Shorewood as each team as one conference win.

 

Jan. 24 Ranking my Girls Prep Basketball Teams

1. New Berlin West (14-1, 9-0) – The state-ranked Lady Vikings beat Bay View, 67-38, in a non-conference game, and Greendale, 56-29, in league play. Alyssa (Chubby) Nelson (21 points) and Morgan Henrichs (7 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists) led the way vs. Bay. Henrichs (13 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals), Nelson (12) and Lily Adkison (10 pts, 7 rebs) led the way vs the Panthers.

The Lady Vikings have big games with Pius XI and South Milwaukee this week.

2. New Berlin Eisenhower (9-5, 7-2) – The Lady Lions had a 4-game losing streak through Saturday, playing ranked King closely, 57-53, but getting blown out by Pewaukee, 61-33. Julia Hintz put on a show with 26 points vs. the Generals but no one reached double figures in the loss to Pewaukee.

Coach Gary Schmidt’s team faces Wauwatosa West and Shorewood this week and should get back on the winning track.

3. Wauwatosa East (12-2, 5-2) – The Red Raiders defeated Brookfield East, 48-35, in their only game of the week. Sophomore Brooklyn Blackburn had 12 points and an amazing 18 rebounds and Johanna Taylor had 11 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks.

The Red Raiders play Brookfield Central and Sussex Hamilton this week.

4. Brookfield Central (5-7, 3-4) – The Lady Lancers lost to Menomonee Falls, 53-42, last week and they face a tough schedule against Wauwatosa East and Divine Savior Holy Angels this week. Freshman Anna Mortag continues to improve as she had 22 points and Caroline Busch had 12 vs the Indians. Point guard Amanda Miller and forward Ellery Nordling as also picked up their games.

Claire Haynes, who suffered a severe injury (back) in the second game of the season, has been given the green light to slowly work her way back onto the court. Her presence and leadership alone could be a boost to this club.

5. Brookfield East (8-8, 3-5) – The Lady Spartans have a 5-game losing streak going with games against West Allis Hale and and West Allis Central this week. They need to get back on track or see a good season go down the drain.

They lost to Catholic Memorial, 53-37, and Tosa East, 48-35, last week. The Crusaders blew them out in the second half, 29-15. Molly DeValkenaere had 15 points, 8 rebs, 2 blocks, while Emma Ralfs had a good all around game (7 rebs, 6 assists, 4 steals). In the loss to Tosa East, Nikki Pink and DeValkenaere had 10 points each. The Red Raiders outscored them by 5 points in the first half and 8 in the second.

6. Wauwatosa West (5-10, 2-7) – Lost a 65-33 decision to Pius XI at home. Irene Phillips had 9 points, Margaret Radske had 8 and Cheri’a Adams had 7. Look for my feature on Dasia Davis, who leads the team in several categories, beginning on Thursday at preps2pros.net.

West plays New Berlin Eisenhower and at Cudahy this week. Trojans have lost 3 straight and 5 of 6.
