Offensive Battles & Rebuilding

In 2015, the major culprit for the difficult Brewers campaign was the starting rotation. Really, unfortunately, the major culprit was ineffectiveness among a couple of veteran pitchers, and then injuries and some first-full-season-adjustments by young organizational arms.

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

Tuesday Morning Coffee: SP, Lucroy, Aramis, Trade Season

After scoring at least four runs in 12 of their first 16 games in July, the Brewers offense has gone completely cold. That cold streak extended from Phoenix to San Francisco, as Milwaukee lost to the Giants last night in a 4-to-2 affair. The game… [More]

Brewers Bats: Five Offensive Explanations

The Brewers sat at 12-23, with 133 total runs scored, on the morning of May 14 when I checked in with the bats. Their overall RS / G of 3.80 was somewhat misleading, however, as the club was in the midst of a 19-game hot… [More]
