Stabilizing Scooter

Once again, Scooter Gennett is defying expectations. The diminutive 24-year old, former 16th round draft pick has been ridiculously good recently. In the 30 days prior to Sunday’s game, Scooter’s 1.033 OPS is the seventh best in baseball. Bested only by: Rank Player OPS 1… [More]

Zach Duke’s Updated Arsenal

It’s hard to imagine now, but one-year ago Zach Duke was not pitching in the major leagues. Duke was released by the Washington Nationals on June 10, 2013, after racking up an 8.71 ERA / 4.55 FIP over 20.2 IP. The Cincinnati Reds signed him… [More]

Yovani Gallardo Hits 121

Yovani Gallardo is no stranger to high pitch counts. Those familiar with his work are used to seeing Gallardo, and his not so crisp control, nearing the 100-pitch mark around the fifth or sixth inning. In fact, according to Baseball Reference, over Gallardo’s eight-year career,… [More]

Protecting Jean Segura

Much has been made about the Brewers’ revamped line-up. Since Jean Segura, Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, and Carlos Gomez were slotted 1-4, which started last Saturday in Miami, the Brewers have averaged 6.1 runs per game. Leading the charge is the Brewers’ latest lead-off hitter,… [More]

Let’s Talk About Lucroy

“I’m never happy with myself. If I’m hitting well, I want to hit better. It’s my personality not to give up. I’ve always worked hard and pushed myself. Nothing is good enough.” A 16-year-old Jonathan Lucroy said the above after being named the Orlando Sentinel… [More]

The Many Sides of Aramis Ramirez

To say Aramis Ramirez was having problems at the plate prior to Saturday’s game would be an understatement. Ramirez had not recorded more than one hit in a game since smacking three singles against the Cardinals on April 16th. That 18-game stretch with no multi-hit… [More]

The Best of the Rest: A Brief History of Pitching Position Players

Martin Maldonado has had a memorable start to the season. So much so that David Schoenfield slyly suggested that Maldonado should be April’s the player of the month. Amongst his many accomplishments, Maldonado literally hit the cover off the ball, punched a Pirate, and pitched a… [More]

Best Month Ever?

Following Sunday’s 4-0 blanking by the Cubs, the Brewers are now 18-7 to start the season. With three games left in April, the 2014 Brewers are tied with 1987’s “Team Streak” for the most wins in March/April at 18. They will get three shots in… [More]

Tracking Carlos Gomez’s “Crazy Swing”

To say that Carlos Gomez plays the game passionately would be an understatement. Sunday’s “dust-up” between Gomez and Gerrit Cole being the latest example of the energy and intensity Gomez brings to a game. While sites like Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs meticulously track Gomez’s on-field performance,… [More]

Is Gallardo Flipping the Script?

Yovani Gallardo pitched 14 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings to start his 2014 campaign. Only four Brewers have ever strung together more goose eggs. Gallardo’s strong start has been a welcome surprise. After battling through the toughest year of his career, both on and off the… [More]
