BREWERS 9, Diamondbacks 4: Six, Inning of the Beast Mode

The Milwaukee Brewers won game two in the sixth inning. If 666 is the number of the beast, then 6 is the inning of the beast mode. After Zack Greinke — who alternated between excellent and putrid, with three home runs too much putrid —… [More]

BREWERS 4, Diamondbacks 1: Perfection

Yovani Gallardo didn’t throw a perfect game. Ian Kennedy and the Diamondbacks held the Brewers to eight hits on 31 at-bats. It wasn’t, at least technically speaking, a perfectly played game. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Diamondbacks Q&A With Snakes On Jefferson’s Tyler Emerick

With the NLDS impending, we figured it would be good to get a few opinions from somebody who didn’t think all Brewers all the time. I asked Tyler Emerick, the proprietor of Snakes of Jefferson who also covered the Brewers during spring training this season,… [More]

Yovani Gallardo’s Hot Streak

When the Brewers swung trades for Shaun Marcum and Zack Greinke prior to the season, much of the talk around the Brewers was how they had improved their rotation so much that last season’s ace, Yovani Gallardo, might be the third-best starter on the team…. [More]

Thoughts on Jose Reyes, Ryan Braun, and the Batting Title

Today, in the bottom of the first at Citi Field, Jose Reyes successfully bunted for a hit and was immediately pulled for a pinch runner. The hit improved his batting average to .337 and forced Ryan Braun to go either 3-for-3, 3-for-4, 4-for-5, or better… [More]

Ryan Braun: Best Brewer Batting Season?

The best season ever by a Milwaukee Brewer is Robin Yount’s 1982. There is no debating this fact. In 1982, Yount hit .331/.379/.578, led the league in hits (210), doubles (46), OPS (.957), OPS+ (166), total bases (367), and WAR (10.5 FanGraphs, 11.5 Baseball-Reference). He… [More]

Jonathan Lucroy’s Receiving Value

Jonathan Lucroy had Brewer fans excited with his bat early in the season. For much of the first half, he was maintaining a batting average above .280, supplying some decent power, and giving the team a semi-reliable bat out of the catcher position, something that… [More]

Presented Without Comment: Casey McGehee’s Splits

Career games 10-282 (first two seasons with Milwaukee): .291/.346/.477, 119 OPS+, .315 BABIP Career games 367-431 (July 6th-Present): .238/.304/.421, 103 OPS+, .267 BABIP Career Games 283-366 (Beginning of season-July 5th): .222/.274/.308, 65 OPS+, .253 BABIP The endpoints here aren’t completely arbitrary (and, I suppose, therefore… [More]

Rickie Weeks Right Back In The Flow

There was a good bit of concern over the fact that Rickie Weeks was not going to have any minor league games to take a rehab assignment upon his recovery from his sprained ankle. After all, Weeks went well over a month without seeing live… [More]
