Brewers Headed in the Right Direction

The non-waiver trade deadline came and went on Friday afternoon, and when the dust had settled it was clear that the team has decided to go in a somewhat different direction than the path they have been on since Mark Attanasio took over as owner… [More]

Smartbuilding #8: Doug Melvin’s Conservatism

For quite some time, I’ve worked to formulate a thread, an argument, or an ideology about the Brewers’ front office. There is a seemingly simple fact about Brewers President and GM Doug Melvin that becomes more complex as it is unfolded: Melvin is loyal to… [More]

Friday Round-Em Up: Trade Lucroy, Attanasio, Tanking

For an off-day, Thursday yielded some of the most interesting quotes of the seasons for Brewers fans. The day started with an unintentionally hilarious look at the Attanasio as “baseball ownership family,” and ended with more-than-candid quotes from apparently-disgruntled catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Can the Brewers win in 2016?

If you’ve followed the Brewers throughout 2015, there have been few moments of press clarity from the front office. Granted, in the past, President & GM Doug Melvin has been tight-lipped about potential club moves, so a lack of a loud “Players For Sale” sign… [More]

Will the Brewers Go “All In” Again in 2015?

It’s been awhile, so hopefully the cliche can be forgiven: are the Brewers going to go “all in” and deal away some of their top prospects for immediate impact? If they do so, it really shouldn’t be a surprise, because it would be the third time… [More]

Series Preview: Brewers @ Reds

When the Brewers schedule was released, the September series against the Reds hinted at the potential for heavy-hitting games with playoff implications. Since the Pittsburgh Pirates won during the Brewers’ day off, there is not much of a playoff threat hanging over these games; neither… [More]

The Brewers’ $100 M Ball Club

With all the projections being made about the Brewers’ 2014 season, here’s one you can take to the bank — the Brewers payroll will exceed $100 M for the first time in the organization’s history. AP compiled the Opening Day payrolls for every MLB team… [More]
