We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

Quality against Quantity: Shuffling the Rotation

After signing Tom Gorzelanny, Burke Badenhop, and a gang of minor league relievers, and (thankfully?) losing out on starting pitching free agents such as Ryan Dempster or Francisco Liriano, it is apparent that the Brewers are going to trust their young core of starters. These… [More]

The Inimitable Marco Estrada

If Marco Estrada starts 31 games after 2012, he will sit among rare company in the last decade of MLB pitchers. A lot of Brewers fans question Estrada’s expected production in 2012, and with good reason: first and foremost, very few MLB pitchers are successful… [More]

Contract tender deadline nears

With teams having to tender contracts to players before December 1st, the Brewers have some interesting decisions to make over the next five days. Following the Great Outright Roster Purge of Early November, the Brewers have five arbitration-eligible players remaining on their roster: Carlos Gomez,… [More]

Spinning Wheels

One of the difficult aspects of following a sudden Wild Card contender is that the cybermarket is flooded with loads of virtual ink analyzing said team and verifying the “what-ifs.” Of course, if this type of run happens to a team virtually overnight, there might… [More]

Replacement City

In the 2011 National League, I counted 71 pitchers that worked 100+ innings primarily as starters (i.e., more than 50% of their appearances occurred in games started). As you probably deduced during that sentence, that’s notably fewer pitchers than 16 full-time five-man rotations would require…. [More]

Brewers April Round Up

I have to admit, I was concerned about writing this morning. Now that we’re out in the eastern time zone, the west coast games practically start after we’re asleep. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I accidentally left my computer volume and GameDay window open,… [More]

Chris Narveson lands on DL with torn rotator cuff

This probably isn’t the way Chris Narveson wanted to begin the 2012 season. In his first two starts, the lefthander allowed 8 runs (7 earned) in just 9 innings, walked 4 and only struck out 5. Considering Narveson was never much of a swing-and-miss guy… [More]

Weekend in Review: House of Horrors in ATL

It proved to be a weekend to forget in Atlanta. The Brewers put together rallies on Friday and Saturday, but were simply unable to break through for a victory. On Sunday, however, the Braves’ bats came to play and blew out Chris NarvesonĀ and the Brewers…. [More]

Brewers Round ‘Em Up: The Great Strike Zone Conspiracy

Haven’t done one of these in a while; you all have been subjected to my crazy labor rants, stats excursions, and sessions of throwing-spaghetti-on-the-wall. Lucky for you, a part of my community service agreement (we won’t go there) requires that I have the decency to… [More]

Randy Wolf is a Better Pitcher than Zack Greinke

In 2009, Zack Greinke pitched one of the greatest seasons in the “live ball era” by a pitcher 25 or younger. Facing 915 batters, Greinke struck out more than 240 batters, walked only 51, and allowed 11 home runs. Allowing 64 runs in nearly 230… [More]
