Philadelphia Series Preview with Bill Baer of Crashburn Alley

In anticipation of this weekend’s series against the Philadelphia Phillies, Bill Baer of the Philadelphia Phillies SweetSpot Blog Crashburn Alley and I exchanged some questions in order to help ourselves and our readers become familiar with the teams. I asked Bill seven questions about his… [More]

Braves 9, BREWERS 2: Defense

Unfortunately, it’s finals week for me and my last final is at 7:45 AM on Thursday morning, so I don’t have time for too deep of an analysis. The clear turning point of this game was when a ground ball from Jason Heyward got under… [More]

Game 33 Thought: Life Without Braun

The Brewers will be without Ryan Braun tonight against the Braves. That’s a pretty big blow, as Braun is quite clearly the best hitter on the Brewers so far this year, with a wOBA of .463 and a staggering 16.4 runs above average in only… [More]

Braves 8, BREWERS 2: Shut Down By Hanson

Tommy Hanson spun an eight inning gem against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night, striking out eight and only walking one batter. Hanson managed to keep a staggering 13 fly balls inside the park, including at least one close call from Jim Edmonds in what… [More]

On Zach Braddock And Mitch Stetter

With LaTroy Hawkins heading to the 15-day DL, Doug Melvin made the obvious move, recalling opening day roster member Mitch Stetter to the Brewers. Stetter has a 3.42 ERA in 76.1 innings as a reliever for the Brewers, going back to 2007. Stetter will likely… [More]

A Winning Week

After an absolute disaster week – 2-5 including 4 straight losses to the Pirates and the Padres – the Brewers put together one of the more impressive road weeks in recent franchise history. The Brewers took 5 of 6 from the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks,… [More]

Game 28 Thought: The Diamondbacks Might Have The Best Lineup In The NL

The Brewers are on the last leg of The Road Trip From Hell™ and with a series win against Arizona, they can make it a .500 trip. Unfortunately, Yovani Gallardo, Randy Wolf, and Chris Narveson will have to navigate through possibly the best lineup in… [More]

On Latroy Hawkins’ Velocity

Obviously, LaTroy Hawkins’s appearance in last night’s series finale against the Dodgers was very disappointing. Rob Neyer claimed that he seemed “lost out there” in last night’s Baseball Tonight Live chat. He ended up allowing two hits and a walk to load the bases for… [More]

Brewers 11, DODGERS 3: Davis Pitches Exactly As He Has All Year, Receives Win

Sorry for the late recaps – the west coast times really mess with my schedule. Coming into last night’s game against LA, Doug Davis had an ERA of 8.87 against an FIP of 4.16 and an xFIP of 3.88. Davis continued to pitch much better… [More]

Game 27 Thought: Does Doug Davis’s Luck Turn Tonight?

Doug Davis has struck out 24 batters in 22 innings. He’s walked 10 batters and allowed 3 home runs, which is a few more than you would want. Davis has induced ground balls on nearly 50% of balls in play against him. Simply put, he… [More]
