Quality against Quantity: Shuffling the Rotation

After signing Tom Gorzelanny, Burke Badenhop, and a gang of minor league relievers, and (thankfully?) losing out on starting pitching free agents such as Ryan Dempster or Francisco Liriano, it is apparent that the Brewers are going to trust their young core of starters. These… [More]

The Inimitable Marco Estrada

If Marco Estrada starts 31 games after 2012, he will sit among rare company in the last decade of MLB pitchers. A lot of Brewers fans question Estrada’s expected production in 2012, and with good reason: first and foremost, very few MLB pitchers are successful… [More]

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.
