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!

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]

Too Much Pitching?

Too Much Pitching?

There is an old saying in baseball that a team can never have too much pitching. Anyone who has followed any team for  a year or two can readily attest that no matter how set one thinks a team’s rotation or bullpen is for an… [More]

Narveson Gets Cut… on the Finger; Frankie de la Cruz Promoted

Matt Wise can start resting a little bit easier now: he is no longer the most recent Brewers pitcher to injure himself on a metal utility object. Chris Narveson can handle salad tongs well enough, but a pair of scissors meant to help fix the… [More]

Who are the Brewers’ next three starting pitchers?

The Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation has been absolutely stellar so far. The group owns only the 8th best ERA in the National League (a modest 3.85 mark), but they’ve pitched better than that, posting the 4th best FIP (3.43) and WAR (8.0), as well as… [More]

Minor League Notes

AAA – Nashville Sounds The Sounds have gone 8-4 through their first 12 games. The big force on offense has been 27 year old RF Brendan Katin, with 4 HR accounting for his .667 slugging percentage in 27 ABs. Angel Salome has only played in… [More]
