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]

The Curious Case of Juan Francisco

On Monday, the Brewers announced that they tendered the contracts of Juan Francisco and Marco Estrada, the only two arbitration-eligible players remaining on the roster.

Who’s On First?

An Outfield (Anti)Assist and Home Run Distances

Even though not a lot has been going right for the Milwaukee Brewers this season. A lot has been going very right for Jonathan Lucroy lately. Saturday’s game against the Miami Marlins was no different. Lucroy went 4 for 4 with a double, home run,… [More]
