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

Game 8 Thought: The Best Lineup

Ever since the days of Ned Yost, much has been made of the lineup construction of the Brewers lineup. Mostly, that had to do with .248 career hitter Rickie Weeks in the leadoff slot. Now, with speedsters Carlos Gomez and Alcides Escobar in the lineup… [More]

On The Schedule So Far

It’s hard to imagine that too many Brewers fans are happy with the 3-4 record through the first seven games of the season. Trevor Hoffman and the starting pitching has struggled, and a 9-5 drubbing from the Cubs yesterday seems to be leaving much of… [More]

Game 7: CUBS 9, Brewers 5: In Which Doug Davis Gets Lit Up

[Quick note: All caps team name signifies home, and the win probability graphs always go towards the home team at the top.] That one was forgettable. Seeing as there was a 91.3% win probability for the Cubs when Claudio Vargas replaced Doug Davis in the… [More]

Game 6: BREWERS 8, Cardinals 7: Finding the Cards’ Weakness

No, I’m not talking about Chris Carpenter, who the Brewers somehow torched for three home runs in five innings. I’m instead talking about the extremely shallow St. Louis Cardinals bullpen. We didn’t have to wait to see closer Ryan Franklin tonight – he of the… [More]

Game 6 Thought: Outfield Defense?

Today, the Brewers will be playing Ryan Braun in LF, Jim Edmonds in CF, and Corey Hart in RF. In their last seasons (’09 for Braun/Hart, and ’08 for Edmonds), this group combined for a -33.5 UZR. This is probably the worst outfield defense that… [More]

Gallardo Signed Through 2014

The Brewers announced the signing of Yovani Gallardo to a $30.1 million contract that will carry through 2014, his first year of free agency. The contract also contains a team option for 2015 worth $13 million. This is excellent news. Gallardo is a fantastic young… [More]

On Suppan To The Rotation

Yesterday, Brewers management announced that Jeff Suppan would be moving into the 5th starter role after a rehab start with Wisconsin, a move that pushes Manny Parra into the bullpen. This move certainly surprised me, as Suppan was absolutely horrible this spring (7.71 ERA, 10… [More]

Game Recap – BREWERS 5, Rockies 4

Great to see an early series win against what should be one of the best teams in the National League. Todd Coffey had a gritty appearance, really boosted by a Miguel Olivo double play. George Kottaras made things happen at the plate, even though he… [More]

Game 3 Thought: Wacky Lineups

Aaron Cook (R) (0-0) vs. Doug Davis (L) (0-0) Lineups With Doug Davis in, the Rockies are going with a right handed heavy lineup. That means that Carlos Gonzalez and Jason Giambi (in for Todd Helton today) will be the only lefties that Davis will… [More]

Game Recap – BREWERS 7, Rockies 5

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to watch the game, as the Bucks game was shown on FSN in my area (#FearTheDeer baby!). Here’s some thoughts from watching over GameDay. Randy Wolf‘s first start is leaving me with mixed feeling. His velocity was down from 89 last… [More]
