How the heck are the Brewers still in first place?

Eleven weeks ago, I left the Midwest (and range for Brewers local TV broadcasts) to spend the summer in South Carolina. I was able to catch a handful of day games in lieu of working, but, if you’re reading this, I’m sure that you all… [More]

Brewers Exploit Cubs Weaknesses in 3-1 Victory

This deep into the season, there aren’t many mysteries in regards to teams’ strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, and overall ability. Against a division rival, and there are even fewer unknowns about both teams leading into a series. So heading into Monday’s opener of the Brewers’ series… [More]

The Wei-Chung Wang Dilemma

Monday night was the latest installment in the Brewers’ ongoing Wei-Chung Wang story. It also may–and should–have been the final straw. The 22-year-old Taiwanese left hander gave up five runs and recorded only two outs in the eighth inning. Making only his sixth appearance of… [More]

Ryan Braun and a Timely Return for the Brewers

In case you missed it, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reported Wednesday that Ryan Braun will spend the minimum time on the 15-day disabled list–and the timing for the Brewers couldn’t be any better. Since the first game without Braun in the lineup on April 27,… [More]

Is Jean Segura Coming Around Defensively?

After a five-run first inning, there weren’t many highlights in the Brewers 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. One of the bright spots, however, was Jean Segura‘s defense. He robbed Paul Goldschmidt of a hit with a backhanded diving stop-and-throw for the first… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: “Losing Streak”, Hypotheticals, and Lyle Overbay

Predicting the Brewers Regression

Through one month, the Brewers are off to a 20-8 start. I can’t really explain how or why this happened, but it did. 5.5 games up on the Cardinals, they are the surprise team in baseball, and back-to-back comeback, extra inning wins in St. Louis convinced… [More]

Injuries, Roster Utilization, and the Brewers

The Brewers pulled off, arguably, their most impressive win of the season Monday night in St. Louis. Trailing 3-0 in the 7th inning against a dominant Michael Wacha, the Brewers plated three runs to tie the game. The bullpen kept the Cardinals offense scoreless for… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Emergency Catchers, Scooter, and Rickie

“Why did the Brewers chose not to bring anyone up for Maldonado? It seems awfully risky to only have 1 catcher active…. who is the emergency catcher?” -Garret Strachota (Facebook) MLB rules don’t designate that a team can bring up another player in the event… [More]
