Streaming with the Enemy

Wednesday was a fateful day for Brewers fans not at Miller Park. FS Wisconsin did not broadcast the finale of the Brewers-Cardinals series. While Rock and BA enjoyed a day off, Ueker and Joe Block were still there to paint a picture for the radio… [More]

Braun & Fielder: A Tale of Two Struggling Sluggers

For years, Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder were the cornerstones of the Brewers organization. They were two of the most feared hitters in the game and helped lead the Brewers to the playoffs for the first time in 26 years. Their paths may have diverged… [More]

The 2013 Brewers: Frankenstein or Goldilocks?

Last week, in the wake of Ryan Braun’s suspension, I posed a question on Twitter, “What’s worse for competitiveness in baseball — a few players taking PEDs or a few teams with payrolls that double/triple their opponents?” My question was not an attempt to justify… [More]

Ryan Braun & Baseball’s Prisoner’s Dilemma

The PED era might be over for Ryan Braun but it is still alive and well in baseball. To think otherwise would be nothing short of foolish. In the days following Braun’s suspension heaps of disappointment and vitriol have been thrown his way. Many believe… [More]

An Outfield (Anti)Assist and Home Run Distances

Even though not a lot has been going right for the Milwaukee Brewers this season. A lot has been going very right for Jonathan Lucroy lately. Saturday’s game against the Miami Marlins was no different. Lucroy went 4 for 4 with a double, home run,… [More]
