CARDINALS 4, Brewers 3: Plenty Of Blame Beyond Kotsay

In probably the most inexplicable decision of the Milwaukee Brewers season to date, Mark Kotsay received the start in center field in Wednesday’s Game Three of the NLCS. In related news, the Milwaukee Brewers lost Game Three of the NLCS. Kotsay put together one of… [More]

Road Failure Is Not A Constant For Milwaukee

With the two losses in Phoenix during the NLDS, the Brewers have fallen to 39-44 on the road. Between that unimpressive record and the specter of three games at St. Louis, there is naturally some fear among the fanbase concerning the Brewers’ chances of advancing… [More]

Cardinals 12, BREWERS 3: Pujols Burns Marcum

Albert Pujols has had talent surrounding him in St. Louis, but really, there’s a reason why his teams win so often, and he displayed that at Miller Park tonight. Pujols put together a historic performance, going 4-for-5 with three doubles and a homer, effectively accounting… [More]

BREWERS 9, Cardinals 6: Six in Five for One

The mark of a great team is the resiliency to win despite the failure of one cog of the machine. Zack Greinke may have picked up his 12th win at home and his team may have won for his 18th straight home start (dating back… [More]

My Yuniesky Betancourt Nightmare

For about the last two months or so of the regular season — basically, ever since it became apparent the Brewers were headed to the postseason — I have had a recurring nightmare in which the Milwaukee Brewers’ season ends. In this nightmare, the Brewers… [More]

BREWERS 3, Diamondbacks 2: Too Many Storylines

We have witnessed one of the best games in Division Series history. Where do we start? The fantastic pitcher’s duel between Ian Kennedy and Yovani Gallardo? Both pitchers tossed six excellent innings under tremendous pressure. Gallardo’s only blemish was a home run off the bat… [More]

Five A Good Number For Yovani Gallardo

For as good as the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation is supposed to be, they have largely disappointed in the playoffs. As a unit, the starting rotation carries an 8.27 ERA into Friday’s Game 5. Of course, that total is the work of Zack Greinke, Shaun… [More]

Podcast: Grantland Network: Jonah Keri

I appeared on the Grantland Network’s podcast with Jonah Keri this morning, talking Brewers baseball in the NLDS, potentially in the NLCS, and going forward. Check it out, and check out the other guests too if you’re wondering what’s up with the other six teams… [More]

DIAMONDBACKS 8, Brewers 1: Milwaukee Pays For Roenicke’s Long Leash

It doesn’t take much of a trained baseball eye to see something was off with Shaun Marcum against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Pitches were left in the zone; pitches were inside when they were supposed to be outside. Command and control were limited, and… [More]

Josh Collmenter, Mr. Deception

The Brewers will face Josh Collmenter on Tuesday in game three of the National League Division series. In two starts, Collmenter has stymied the Brewers, striking out 10 against just one walk in 14 shutout innings. It’s easy to see why Kirk Gibson is willing… [More]
