62.5% If there’s a telling statistic about the Brewers’ recent success and struggles, it’s also a straightforward statistic: from June 1 onward, 62.5% of the Brewers’ games required five runs (or more) in order to win. Let that sink in: basically, for every series, the… [More]

Protecting Jean Segura

Much has been made about the Brewers’ revamped line-up. Since Jean Segura, Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, and Carlos Gomez were slotted 1-4, which started last Saturday in Miami, the Brewers have averaged 6.1 runs per game. Leading the charge is the Brewers’ latest lead-off hitter,… [More]

Let’s Talk About Lucroy

“I’m never happy with myself. If I’m hitting well, I want to hit better. It’s my personality not to give up. I’ve always worked hard and pushed myself. Nothing is good enough.” A 16-year-old Jonathan Lucroy said the above after being named the Orlando Sentinel… [More]

Jonathan Lucroy’s One Weakness

In his 2013 post-season Brewers grades, one sentence from Journal-Sentinel beat writers Tom Haudricourt and Todd Rosiak jumped out at me: Catchers Jonathan Lucroy and Martin Maldonado again formed a nice duo behind the plate though Lucroy had trouble throwing out runners. The reason this… [More]

Roster Construction: Positions By Year

The Face of the Brewers

In lieu of MLB Network’s “Face of the Franchise” campaign that centered its focus on the Brewers on Tuesday, the question of “Who really is the face of the franchise?” has risen.  And though it’s not a completely integral to the team’s success on the… [More]

Brewers Do Not Need a Lead Off Bat

A common refrain from Brewers fans is, “The Brewers need a lead-off hitter.” This chorus has been prominent since Doug Melvin traded Norichika Aoki to Kansas City, and it reverberated beneath the club’s hunt for a 1B during the winter meetings. Yet, the fans’ desire for a… [More]
