Podcast, Episode 3.2: “Getting Back To This Podcast Thing”

After a longer layoff than expected, Ryan and I returned to your iDevice to talk some Brewers baseball. We were a little rusty, to be sure — I completely missed the housekeeping portion of the podcast introduction — but we hopefully shed some light on… [More]

Two Inducted Into DoU Hall of Greatness From 2000s

The votes have been tabulated. Bob Uecker and Geoff Jenkins both received enough votes to eclipse the necessary 65 percent and will be the final two individuals who are inducted into the DoU Hall of Fame this year. I was doubly surprised with this ballot. I was… [More]

Beginning the Jean Segura Era at Shortstop

When the Brewers opted to trade right-hander Zack Greinke to the Los Angeles Angels last July, GM Doug Melvin and the club pulled the trigger because they felt shortstop Jean Segura could be the Brewers’ starting shortstop for the next half decade. Segura was only 22 years… [More]

DoU Hall of Greatness: Now Voting for 2000s

Earlier this week, readers voted only one Brewers player into the DoU Hall of Greatness from the 1990s. That was Jeff Cirillo. It was a ballot that was littered with role players and journeymen, but it lacked the star power necessary to induct more than… [More]

Only One Inducted Into DoU Hall of Greatness From 1990s

Disciples of Uecker strives to provide quality Brewers content on a consistent basis. I feel we’ve done pretty well on that front this past year. Nicholas Zettel has really begun to come into his own as a baseball writer, and Jaymes Langrehr continues to churn… [More]

Spring Training 2013: Four Things To Watch

Although pitchers and catchers do not officially report until Tuesday, dozens of Brewers personnel began trickling into the Phoenix area over the weekend. Minor league pitchers tweeted about their dozen-hour road trips to Arizona, Jonathan Lucroy already left for Maryvale, and third base coach Ed… [More]

DoU Hall of Greatness: Now Voting for 1990s

On Tuesday, we inducted five more Brewers players into the DoU Hall of Greatness. They included Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Cecil Cooper, Gorman Thomas, and Rollie Fingers. It’s not surprising so many merited induction, and it’s also not surprising that Jim Gantner, Teddy Higuera, and… [More]

Why Won’t Braun Prove He Hired Bosch As Consultant?

Another offseason, another scandal involving Ryan Braun and performance-enhancing drugs. Perhaps the above statement is a little overstated. What we really have is a Yahoo! Sports report of Ryan Braun’s name on a piece of paper, indicating that he owed money to Tony Bosch. The… [More]

Five From The 1980s Inducted Into DoU Hall of Greatness

Numerous readers had sent me follow-up emails with their earlier ballots expressing excitement regarding the 1980s ballot for the DoU Hall of Greatness project that we began a couple weeks ago. As it turns out, restricting the ballot to only ten names left a couple… [More]
