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

Dave Bush’s Early Success

I’ve already covered some of the disappointments of the pitching staff so far this season. Everybody knew that the pitching staff and the starting rotation in particular would be a weak point for this Brewers team. On Tuesday night, however, the Brewers received yet another… [More]

Minor League Notes

AAA – Nashville Sounds The Sounds have gone 8-4 through their first 12 games. The big force on offense has been 27 year old RF Brendan Katin, with 4 HR accounting for his .667 slugging percentage in 27 ABs. Angel Salome has only played in… [More]

Home Runs, Home Runs, And More Home Runs

The Brewers will enter this week’s series with Pittsburgh with a 5-7 record – certainly slightly disappointing for a team with the ability to contend. The scapegoat is easy to find – the pitching staff. So far, Milwaukee pitchers have allowed a 6.06 ERA –… [More]

Game 11 Thought: The Ageless Livan Hernandez

Livan Hernandez has been around for years. Hernandez has made at least 30 starts in every season since 1998. What makes that most impressive, however, is that he’s managed to do that without being a good pitcher. He hasn’t had an FIP below 4.00 since… [More]

Game 10 Thought: The Nationals Have Good Players

The perception among many Brewers fans coming into this series is probably that anything less than a sweep is a disappointment, given how poor the Washington Nationals have been the last few years. Although I do agree that losing the series would be a very… [More]

Game 9: Brewers 8, CUBS 6: We Can Hit

On days when Jeff Suppan starts, I’m going to have a good amount of negativity in me. However, Milwaukee managed to avoid a sweep against the Cubs today, so I suppose we should start out with something positive. The Brewers just flat out hit the… [More]

Game 9 Thought: Jody Gerut!

Today, Carlos Gomez and Corey Hart will be sitting as Ken Macha is shoving as many lefties into the lineup as possible. That means that Jim Edmonds and Jody Gerut will be starting in the outfield today. I’m a pretty unabashed Jody Gerut fan, and… [More]

Stetter to AAA, Suppan Up

Stetter to AAA, Suppan Up

We’ve known since opening day that Jeff Suppan, against all of many fans’ best wishes, would be activated today to start today’s game against the Cubs. The only question was who would be sent down in order to make room for Suppan – only two… [More]

Game 8: CUBS 7, Brewers 6: Questionable Bullpen Management

Really, more like this: The easy thing to do is to place the blame squarely on LaTroy Hawkins – he allowed 5 straight baserunners, culminating in Kosuke Fukudome’s 2 run single which put the Cubs ahead for good, 7-6. Hawkins certainly had opportunities to put… [More]
