Reading Into Attanasio’s Comments

Adam McCalvy talked to Brewers owner Mark Attanasio on Saturday, and Attanasio had some pretty interesting comments about the management of the Brewers. First, on GM Doug Melvin: “Doug Melvin is very, very secure. You’re not going to see any GM changes here. Absolutely not…. [More]

TWINS 15, Brewers 3: Remember When I Said The Season Was Over?

Roster Moves

The Brewers roster should be greatly improved for this weekend’s series against the Twins. Catcher Jon Lucroy will replace Gregg Zaun, who is headed to the DL. This is certainly disappointing – Zaun had a wOBA of .432 and a wRC+ of 170 in May… [More]

A Lighter Note: Behind Enemy Lines

Alternate Title: Not So Great American Ballpark After today’s heartbreaking 5-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds pushed the Brewers back to 15-24, the last thing anybody here needs to read is another recap of how bad Trevor Hoffman is or how disappointing it is that… [More]

Time For Trevor To Retire

Pushing this back to the top, given today’s events. Trevor Hoffman had a fantastic year in 2009. He managed to maneuver his 85 MPH fastball and legendary changeup into a 37 save season with a tremendous 1.83 ERA and 2.63 FIP. In 2010, we’ve seen… [More]

During the winter of 2009, Pat Burrell was let go by the Philadelphia Phillies without an arbitration offer. Burrell was a type A free agent, meaning that another team signing Burrell would result in the Phillies forfeiting their first round draft pick to that team…. [More]
