An Offseason NL Central Smorgasbord

As Doug Melvin recently noted, only six National League teams finished the 2013 season above .500. Three of those teams were in the NL Central. Playing in the NL’s best and most competitive division will make it even more difficult for the Brewers to contend… [More]

Brewers Organization Valued at $615 Million

Earlier this week, Bloomberg News published the results of their nine-month investigation into the value of each Major League Baseball team. They posted their findings in an excellent interactive tool, which is worth a few minutes of your time. As expected, the New York Yankees… [More]

Brewers Arbitration Estimates

Last week, I examined the size of the wallet the Brewers will be wielding this off-season. I turned out the team’s pockets and helped hunt for change in the couch cushion. In the end, the rough estimate was that the Brewers would have around $13M… [More]

The $13 Million Makeover

In June, Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly told the Los Angeles Times something that blew my mind. If in the off-season the Dodgers baseball operations department recommended to the Guggenheim Partners, the official owner of the team, that they should sign Clayton Kershaw to a multi-year… [More]

Could Casey Come Back to Bat for the Brewers?

After a successful 2013 season in Japan, former Brewers fan favorite Casey McGehee has let it be known that he would be open to return to a MLB team. In 120 games for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, McGehee hit .306 BA / .922 OPS… [More]

Who’s On First?

If asked this simple question (who’s on first for the 2014 Brewers?), I wouldn’t have a good answer. After losing Corey Hart and Matt Gamel to season ending injuries, the Brewers have struggled to find a competent, or even replacement level, first baseman this year…. [More]

Norichika Aoki versus Mr. Zero’s “Serpentine Fastball”

Chang-Yong Lim isn’t your usual September call-up for the Chicago Cubs. He is 37 and one year removed from his second Tommy John surgery. But, before Lim could even throw his first major league pitch, he found himself on the mound at Wrigley Field with… [More]
