08.13.2018: Not time to panic ... yet ... plus a conversation with Corbin Burnes

Aug 13, 2018, 11:00 AM

A very rough week for the Brewers puts Milwaukee's playoff hopes in jeopardy. Brewers beat reporter Todd Rosiak chats with host JR Radcliffe about the struggles on the pitching staff. What's up with Chase Anderson, and will the Brewers soon make a move to trim Freddy Peralta's workload?

There's some silver linings though, including a hot start for new acquisition Mike Moustakas and a catch by Ryan Braun that might rank as the best Brewers defensive play of the year -- is it No. 1? 

After that, JR sits down with rookie right-handed reliever Corbin Burnes, brought up from the minors and directly inserted into high-leverage innings. He talks about his transition to the bullpen, his late-blooming into a big-league prospect, his skyrocket up the minor-league chain, his famous-ish near-namesake and his sweet specs.
