Don’t remember Thad Bosley as a Brewer? Bosley played 42 games for the Brewers in 1981 and was traded to the Mariners a month ago — in March for the immortal Mike Parrott (who was cut from camp). But you’ve gotta love that afro!
Finally, the season is here! Following a season-opening snow-out, the Brewers travel to Toronto to get their first taste of regular season baseball during the 1982 season.

Milwaukee Brewers: 62-47 (1st in AL East)
Toronto Blue Jays: 37-69 (7th in AL East)
We’ve waited three extra days, but Opening Day is finally here. Like Brewers fans, Blue Jays fans have waited an extra series due to winter weather postponements before finally getting under way.
Let’s do this.
We have high hopes for Larry, but he’s been a shell of his former self from 1979 until now. Still, most fans will remember Hisle for his work during the 1977 and 1978 All-Star seasons.
MILWAUKEE — Normally, we’d be previewing the opening Brewers series at home with the Indians. Well, if you’ve looked around outside, you know that a baseball game in Milwaukee today is impossible.
Since there’s a built in day off tomorrow, the game has been tentatively delayed a day. But the odds can’t be good for any baseball in this city for a few more days.
You bought Opening Day tickets? You’re probably gonna have to wait. The next series is in Toronto. The series after that is in Cleveland. Unless a miracle shines on this city in the next 24 hours, the Brewers won’t have their home opener until April 16 against the Rangers.
If it feels like the baseball gods are picking on us and our Brewers, think again. Opening Day American League games at Detroit and Chicago scheduled for today have also been postponed. You’d think that maybe MLB schedule makers could have made an attempt to have the first series or two in domes and warm cities whenever possible. Right?
So stay tuned. Baseball will come. We will wait.
Finding the right word to describe the 1982 Milwaukee Brewers is almost as difficult as it will be to stop the Crew’s powerful (imposing, intimidating, robust, strapping, dominant) offense.
The Crew is loaded. They are stacked. They are 36-24-36. They are a “Brick House.” But can they parlay that offensive awesomeness into a winning hand?
(Too much Commodores? Give me some credit. At least I’m referencing the pre-gone soft Lionel Richie days.) [Read more…] about Wait ‘Til This Year?
Yesterday I wrote a hypothetical article about the five reasons why the Brewers would not win the American League East this season. I think they’ll win it. But if they don’t, I’ll bet my Donkey Kong Tabletop Arcade that I know why.
Today, I’m ready to be optimistic. I love this team. I’m confident that this Milwaukee Brewers team is as good as any we have seen in this city since the days of the Milwaukee Braves. They are ready to win the division, possibly more, and here’s why… [Read more…] about Five Reasons Brewers Will Win AL East
