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

BREWERS 17, Pirates 3: Just How Ridiculous

I think it’s now safe to say that the Brewers-Pirates series in 2010 defies logic. Yes, the Brewers are certainly a better team than the Pirates, but let’s explore just how ridiculous it is for a team to get outscored by 49 runs in 4… [More]

What Howard’s Deal Means For Prince

In case you haven’t yet heard, Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard signed a 5 year, $125 million contract that will begin in 2012, carrying through 2016, including an utterly ridiculous $10 million buyout on a $23 million option for 2017. Those will be Howard’s age… [More]

Suppan To Pen, Narveson To Rotation

Despite the loss to the Cubs, the Brewers moved a little bit closer to the playoffs yesterday. The team announced that Jeff Suppan will no longer be in the starting rotation – very good news, as he was at best the 7th best option on… [More]

Cubs 12, BREWERS 2: Back To Reality

Dave Bush’s 2010 line, prior to this start: 18.2 IP, 14 H, 5 ER, 10 K, 6 BB 2 HR .220 BABIP, 2.41 ERA, 4.46 FIP, 4.31 xFIP Dave Bush’s career stats: .290 BABIP, 4.64 ERA, 4.55 FIP, 4.37 xFIP Dave Bush’s current 2010 line:… [More]

Game 18 Thought: The New Bullpen

MLB.com beat writer Adam McCalvy announced today on his twitter that Jeff Suppan will be heading to the bullpen, and Chris Narveson will replace him in the starting rotation. I’ll have more on the longer term implications of that move tomorrow, but for today, what… [More]

Game 17 Thought: Kottaras Behind The Dish

After slugging a 430 foot bomb as part of the Brewers’ 20-0 decimation of the Pirates, George Kottaras‘s line has risen to .250/.353/.583; two of his three hits have gone for extra bases and he’s drawn three walks. Gregg Zaun is probably only capable of… [More]

Jim Edmonds: Partying Like It’s 2004

As most people know by now, Jim Edmonds did not even play in the major leagues last season. He last played in 2008, splitting time between San Diego and the Cubs. He hit .235 that season, and although he showed solid power, slugging 20 HRs,… [More]

Brewers 20, PIRATES 0: Meatballs

Beautiful, isn’t it? Obviously, when a team gets 20 runs on 25 hits, the other team probably wasn’t locating their pitches terribly well. Still, I think there’s some value in visualizing just how poorly pirates pitchers located their pitches today. First off, Daniel McCutchen, the… [More]

Game 15 Thought: Daniel McCutchen

The first thing that will probably strike you when you see Daniel McCutchen in today’s game is his ridiculous 14.73 ERA through two starts. Obviously, McCutchen has struggled mightily this year, allowing 6 walks and 3 home runs in only 7.1 innings. McCutchen, however, pretty… [More]

Brewers 8, PIRATES 0: Always Working The Corners

According to the definition of the start, Yovani Gallardo’s 5 IP, 10 K, 3 H, 0 R start tonight was not of the “quality” variety. I beg to differ – Gallardo showed tonight much of what gives him the potential to be a true ace… [More]
