Quick Profile: 2016 Bats

Following Thursday¬†morning’s glance at the 2016 arms, the positional players appear to be much less easily sorted into roles.

Playing Davis & Santana

Throughout the offseason, Brewers fans and analysts have clearly advertised expected rebuilding moves. With a set of advanced minor league outfielders and trade returns making their way to the MLB, one “logical” move for the Brewers is a trade involving either Khris Davis or Ryan… [More]

Quick Profile: The Davis Surge

Left fielder Khris Davis was putting together a decent 2015 campaign before his May 30 injury. In a league that would hit .262 / .326 / .412 for batting average / on-base percentage / slugging, Davis’s .250 / .337 / .446 marks on May 30… [More]

Winning in 2016: Margins

On Arms and Baserunning

In my final follow-up to our rousing debates on Khris Davis over the last week, I realized that I needed to take opposing arguments about Davis’s arm a bit more seriously. Certainly, the statistics say that Davis’s glove is better than his arm is detrimental;… [More]

The Davis / Gennett Connection

As the Brewers introduce their new GM David Stearns, fans will have the opportunity to fully assess the legacy of President & GM Doug Melvin. Recently, the 2009 draft will be one of the thorny issues to untangle, as the regular players emerging from that… [More]

Memorable Brewers Moments: Power Players

Milwaukee is best known for one thing: slugging the ball. Sure, the history of the organization features some solid pitchers (Yovani Gallardo, Teddy Higuera, and Ben Sheets being the leaders), and lately the clubs have been known as much for pitching, speed, and situational baseball… [More]

Rickie Weeks & Khris Davis

During our rousing Khris Davis debates over the last few weeks, it occurred to me that these disagreements are rather similar to those involving Rickie Weeks. Both players exhibited true strengths around the peripheries of the game (including plate discipline / walking, power, and speed… [More]

Khrush: Ballplayer

Throughout the season, Khris Davis has remained a steadily popular and dividing player among Brewers fans. One common phrase about Davis, uttered on Twitter and in comments sections, is that the left fielder’s arm apparently impacts the Brewers in a negative manner. The obvious defenses… [More]
