Rebuilding in Two Easy Months

On July 27, my wife and I were enjoying the Olympic opening ceremonies at a neighborhood bar in Cleveland. Preparing for our impending move back to Wisconsin, we were celebrating our year in Ohio. Watching the Olympics seemed like an easy decision; the Brewers were… [More]

Spinning Wheels

One of the difficult aspects of following a sudden Wild Card contender is that the cybermarket is flooded with loads of virtual ink analyzing said team and verifying the “what-ifs.” Of course, if this type of run happens to a team virtually overnight, there might… [More]

What a wonderful day off on Monday — a nice opportunity to let Wily Peralta‘s dominant outing sink in, but also to step away from Wild Card insanity for a moment. Now that’s that. The Brewers begin their final run of the season, a grueling… [More]

Reconsidering Rebuilding: Trading at the Deadline and 2013

After the flurry of right-handed pitching trades (or trades-to-be?) yesterday, the Brewers late-inning loss seemed a fitting accompaniment to fans’ trade market inquiries and “sell ‘em all” proclamations. Aside from the pending trade of Chicago Cubs righty Ryan Dempster for one of the Atlanta Braves’… [More]

Mike Fiers, Fastballer

Mike Fiers is one of the best surprises of the Brewers’ 2012 season. As J.P. Breen stated yesterday, Fiers has yet to look back since the Brewers inserted him into their injury-depleted rotation. Even though Fiers has yet to reach his 50th inning pitched in… [More]

Brewers buy themselves some time, recall McClendon

When Mike McClendon was sent down for Vinnie Chulk at the end of April, smart money was on McClendon returning to the big leagues before long. Thanks to Marco Estrada landing on the 15-day disabled list with a quad strain, McClendon is getting the call… [More]

Replacement City

In the 2011 National League, I counted 71 pitchers that worked 100+ innings primarily as starters (i.e., more than 50% of their appearances occurred in games started). As you probably deduced during that sentence, that’s notably fewer pitchers than 16 full-time five-man rotations would require…. [More]

Aces Central!

After the Cincinnati Reds’ home run derby at Miller Park not 10 days ago, the Brewers’ rotation produced a complete turn around. Since that 7 IP, 5 R outing by Marco Estrada, no Brewers starter has worked fewer than 6 innings, and each starter has… [More]

Brewers Round Up: May 10, 2012

The Brewers lost to the Reds in heartbreaking fashion yesterday, wasting a phenomenal start by Zack Greinke and failing to capitalize with runners on base in the bottom of the 9th. The Reds took the series from the Brewers, who receive a much-needed day off… [More]

Brewers April Round Up

I have to admit, I was concerned about writing this morning. Now that we’re out in the eastern time zone, the west coast games practically start after we’re asleep. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I accidentally left my computer volume and GameDay window open,… [More]
