Gauging Gomez

Last season, Carlos Gomez gave Brewers fans something positive to discuss. Gomez posted the best numbers of his career across every major offensive category and won a Gold Glove for his stellar center field play. Yet, Gomez’s performance was only part of the story. His… [More]

A few days before Christmas, the Brewers opened up a spot on their 40-man roster by sending Michael Olmsted outright to Nashville. Olmsted made a strong impression during last year’s spring training but couldn’t get traction in AAA. In 52.1 IP for Nashville, Olmsted managed… [More]

UPDATED: 2014 Roster and Payroll Estimates

Earlier in the off-season, I examined the state of the Brewers’ roster and payroll for the 2014 season. There weren’t a lot of mysteries because of the number of contracts already on the books and young players with jobs locked up. Since then the Brewers… [More]
