Mock Draft Time: Delvin Perez at No. 5?

Yesterday, Baseball America came out with the first of many mock drafts, which can only signal one thing: It is officially draft season. Now, the MLB Draft still sits on the horizon a few months away in June, but the match has been lit and… [More]

Assessment: Stearns’s Trades

By my count, according to the MLB.com transactions log, GM David Stearns‘s trade of Khris Davis was his ninth notable deal of the offseason. Entering spring training, the Brewers will feature a cast of new faces at the MLB level, and a set of intriguing… [More]

Quick Profile: Chris Carter

The Brewers swapped out one element of their 40-man roster (a gamble on a catching prospect) for another (a gamble on a true outcome first baseman) when they signed Chris Carter yesterday. Unfortunately, GM David Stearns designated Josmil Pinto for assignment, which is a somewhat… [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]

Adam Lind: Lefties, 1B Value, & Swings

Last night, Adam Lind proved that his ability to hit lefties in 2015 could indeed carry a club for a game, as the first baseman singled off Jon Niese in the first, and then bested Sean Gilmartin in the 7th for what would prove to… [More]

Brewers Bats: Five Offensive Explanations

The Brewers sat at 12-23, with 133 total runs scored, on the morning of May 14 when I checked in with the bats. Their overall RS / G of 3.80 was somewhat misleading, however, as the club was in the midst of a 19-game hot… [More]

Batting Failures

The Brewers once again kept a game close, tempting fans with an opportunity to seize a road victory, but ultimately fell to the Pirates on Sunday afternoon. The Pirates completed the series sweep, handing the Brewers their worst start in franchise history. Fans are instantly… [More]
