We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

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]

The State of Bullpen

The State of Bullpen

Alfredo Figaro picked up the loss in Tuesday’s 2-1, 12 inning loss to San Diego and that’s too bad because, outside of giving up a home run to Chase Headley, it wasn’t his fault. For starters (ha. ha. punny, right?), the Brewers haven’t had a… [More]

Appreciating Francisco Rodriguez

There have been a lot of positives to the start of the Brewers season–when you win 15 of your first 20, that’s bound to happen. Starting pitching has kept them in virtually every game. Seven players are posting an OPS over .800. The back end… [More]

Brewers Top Prospect Jimmy Nelson Starting off Strong

The Brewers farm system isn’t exactly highly touted around the major leagues–rather, it’s usually the exact opposite. Baseball Prospectus ranked Milwaukee 29th among all teams in their organizational rankings. Sporting News, benevolently, ranked them 28th. ESPN’s Keith Law ranked them dead last. One man–a bad,… [More]

Taking a Look at the Brewers Aggressive Offensive Approach

The Brewers’ nine-game winning streak was snapped on Monday night at the hands of timely Cardinals hitting and a dominant Lance Lynn performance. A Jhonny Peralta solo homer got St. Louis on the board in the second inning, and Jon Jay put the game away… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Kendrys Morales, Platoons, BABIP, Carlos Gomez

@CyrtHogg Who is more likely to wind up in a Brewers uniform this year: Ike Davis or Kendrys Morales? — Tim Old (@timcyoung) April 10, 2014 After the endless Ike Davis rumors fell through this winter, it’s hard to see management continuing to pursue him… [More]

Ryan Braun Hits 3 Homers, Twitter Reacts

Dealing with a nagging inflamed thumb, noted worst man in baseball Ryan Braun ended the longest homerless streak in his career with a three-homer performance that led the Brewers to their fourth consecutive victory in a 10-4 drubbing of the Phillies. Now with second career game… [More]

Tyler Thornburg, Will Smith, and Bullpen Dominance

For me, this past weekend was spent in Arlington, Texas, at the Final Four. I was a giraffe. The Badgers lost to Kentucky. I ate my feelings away at Chick-Fil-A and Rudy’s Texas BBQ. On a less-depressing, Seth Davis-deprived scene, the Brewers swept the Red… [More]

Kyle Lohse’s Costly Mistakes

Kyle Lohse looked like he had his dominant stuff–though maybe not as utterly dominant as what shut out the Braves in September–on Tuesday night. He struck out five hitters through his first three innings and, thanks to a good relay from Carlos Gomez to Jean… [More]
