Norichika Aoki: Pull Hitter?

There is a very good argument to be made that Norhichika Aoki’s performance this season has been the Milwaukee Brewers’ life preserver. The 30-year-old import owns an excellent .300/.364/.477 line on the season and his success has allowed Corey Hart to move to first base… [More]

Ryan Dempster and More of the Same

Heading into Tuesday night’s game, there was reason to believe maybe, just maybe, the Brewers had figured out Ryan Dempster. The 2.75 career ERA against the Crew in 26 starts (48 appearances) is daunting, but in his last three starts against Milwaukee, Dempster had allowed… [More]

Milwaukee Adds Mitch Haniger With 38th Pick of MLB Draft

With Prince Fielder leaving for Detroit in the offseason, the Brewers picked up the seventh pick of the “Sandwich Round” between the first and second rounds of the MLB Draft on Monday. With that pick, the 38th overall, the Brewers selected a third bat to… [More]

Brewers Select Clint Coulter, Victor Roache in First Round of MLB Draft

Milwaukee’s Sweep Over The Dodgers Saved The Season

On May 28th, Baseball Prospectus gave the Milwaukee Brewers an 18% chance at making the playoffs. That may have sounded quite charitable at the time — the club sat at just 19-28 and was reeling following two come-from-ahead losses at the hands of the Arizona… [More]

Rickie Weeks Hits A Balanced Home Run

It was the struggling Rickie Weeks who opened the scoring in Milwaukee’s victory last night, depositing a home run in the left field seats off Ian Kennedy in the second inning. Weeks has shown power at times throughout his season long slump, and at five… [More]

Jose Veras, Manny Parra Shine Despite Extra-Inning Loss

The reasons the Milwaukee Brewers lost Monday night’s interminably dragging 14-inning contest are simple: they mustered just one hit in the five extra frames, and Juan Perez just isn’t good enough to be trusted with an inning of any sort of importance. That said, a… [More]

Miguel Batista Rises Again With Seven Shutout Innings Against Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers have been a distinctly different offensive team without Prince Fielder. Despite the narrative on TV and in most media, the Brewers’ offense has still been slightly above average this season, scoring 4.1 runs per game in a league scoring just 4.0. Still,… [More]

Marco Estrada Loses Command In Five-Run Fourth

Milwaukee’s 5-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds should be best remembered for the Brewers’ bats remarkable incompetency, managing just one run and striking out nine times against the Reds’ Bronson Arroyo. However, in the top of the fourth inning, it looked like the one run,… [More]
