Beating St. Louis / Tank Standings

I probably won’t be the only one to admit that I was having a rather lazy Sunday before the Brewers’ ninth inning rally began in St. Louis. Really, Jason Rogers provided quite a spark for a club that appeared headed to another ho-hum loss. It’s… [More]

30 Farmhands #8: Prospect Narratives

While working on ranking Brewers prospects, a number of difficult and intriguing issues appear. First and foremost, the convergence of lower-minor or Brewers-homegrown prospects that are advancing, and supremely advanced external acquisitions leads to a difficult set of wagers about the system’s value. The Brewers… [More]

30 Farmhands #7: Meet the Newcomers

Yesterday, the Brewers front office doubled down on their effort to trade Carlos Gomez after the deal with the Mets fell through. This time, the Brewers attempted to send the superstar centerfielder to the Junior Circuit, and successfully dealt Gomez to the Houston Astros (along… [More]

Monday Morning Coffee: Winning, Garza, Minors, Tanking

Winning On June 26, I compiled my “Week 17” Brewers roster rankings, specifically outlining the issues facing a club that finally returned most of their opening day roster to the big league club. I lamented the fact that the Brewers went 4-9 despite making no… [More]

Can the Brewers win in 2016?

If you’ve followed the Brewers throughout 2015, there have been few moments of press clarity from the front office. Granted, in the past, President & GM Doug Melvin has been tight-lipped about potential club moves, so a lack of a loud “Players For Sale” sign… [More]

Thursday Round-Up: Draft, Kirby, Nelson, 2014 Trades

Last night, our beloved Milwaukee Nine cast aside their terrible season and performed another evening of solid baseball, dismissing the contending New York Mets once more. Surely, one must cue the “we can’t even beat the lowly Brewers” talk from New York fans and media,… [More]

Junkball Blues: Nathan Kirby vs. Florida

This afternoon’s start by University of Virginia LHP Nathan Kirby perfectly coincided with my day off, so I took the opportunity to watch the young southpaw and see what Brewers fans might look for in his arm. The Brewers scouting team has known Kirby for… [More]

Contrasting Tools: Clark & Orimoloye

The results of the 2015 Brewers draft feel different. Certainly, the club continued their general high-ceiling gambling that began in 2014 (a good thing), but they seemed to place their focus on different types of tools. If you’re a Brewers fan that is disheartened with… [More]

Smartbuilding #4: New York Mets

Earlier this spring, Hardball Times published a told-you-so / gotcha-genre article with one of Doug Melvin‘s worst public quotes in his tenure as General Manager. The quote is so bad, of course, because of the author’s lead-in and editorializing, but also because it’s so uncharacteristic… [More]
