You’re My Boy, Braun!

“You’re my boy, Braun!” It’s the bottom of the first inning of Friday’s game at Dodger stadium. I’m seated near the right field line, tucked two sections before the foul pole. Ryan Braun is close enough to hear me yell, but it’s not me bellowing… [More]

How the heck are the Brewers still in first place?

Eleven weeks ago, I left the Midwest (and range for Brewers local TV broadcasts) to spend the summer in South Carolina. I was able to catch a handful of day games in lieu of working, but, if you’re reading this, I’m sure that you all… [More]

Friday night, Carlos Gomez went 0-4 against the Dodgers. A glance at the box score paints it as an uneventful night at the plate for him. Yet, those who watched the game know that doesn’t tell the entire story. In fact, according to Baseball-Reference, Gomez’s… [More]

Carlos Gomez and Controlled Aggression

The Brewers broke out of an offensive slump Monday night against the Diamondbacks, erupting for eight runs in the win. Carlos Gomez, Martin Maldonado, and Jean Segura went deep for Milwaukee, which scored six or more runs for the first time since April 19. Leading… [More]

Predicting the Brewers Regression

Through one month, the Brewers are off to a 20-8 start. I can’t really explain how or why this happened, but it did. 5.5 games up on the Cardinals, they are the surprise team in baseball, and back-to-back comeback, extra inning wins in St. Louis convinced… [More]

Tracking Carlos Gomez’s “Crazy Swing”

To say that Carlos Gomez plays the game passionately would be an understatement. Sunday’s “dust-up” between Gomez and Gerrit Cole being the latest example of the energy and intensity Gomez brings to a game. While sites like Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs meticulously track Gomez’s on-field performance,… [More]

Gomez doesn’t back down from fight in postgame comments

When Carlos Gomez had his run-in with the Atlanta Braves last season, he was quick to apologize for his behavior. Long-standing bad blood with then-Braves pitcher Paul Maholm got the best of him, and his showdown with Brian McCann at home plate cost him a… [More]
