Tyson Ross, Sliders, and Brewers Plate Discipline

On Tuesday night, the Brewers fell behind starter Jimmy Nelson 4-1 to the Padres. This time, though, the topic of discussion won’t be the ongoing debate regarding Nelson, Mike Fiers, Marco Estrada, and the impending return of Matt Garza; rather, let’s take a look at the… [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]

Brewers Exploit Cubs Weaknesses in 3-1 Victory

This deep into the season, there aren’t many mysteries in regards to teams’ strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, and overall ability. Against a division rival, and there are even fewer unknowns about both teams leading into a series. So heading into Monday’s opener of the Brewers’ series… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Thornburg, Outfield, and Brewers Free Agency

“Melvin said Will Smith is coming in as a starter, but RR said Thornburg is penciled in as the 5th starter. What gives?” -@acmccabe I wrote in last week’s mailbag that I foresaw Tyler Thornburg as the fifth starter when the season opens up. I then… [More]

Home ImpBrewMent: Wily Peralta

The 2013 Milwaukee Brewers were a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde team in almost every facet that wasn’t named Carlos Gomez. With that roller coaster pattern being such a common theme, it’s tough to call out anyone in particular, but, though the team struggled with… [More]

Home ImpBrewMent: Johnny Hellweg

There’s no question that when Johnny Hellweg was promoted in late June to take the place of Alfredo Figaro in the revolving circus that was the Brewers 2012 starting rotation, he simply was overmatched. In a game that also featured Pittsburgh Pirates former first-overall draft… [More]
