Arbitration Decisions: Martin Maldonado

Wow!! Just days after I laid out on this website why the Brewers should and most likely would tender 2016 National League home run (and strikeout) king Chris Carter, David Stearns shouted a big “screw you, idiot,” at me, as it was reported on Monday… [More]

NPIND: C — Is this it for Martin Maldonado?

For the first year in what seems like forever (but really since 2009), the Brewers will begin a season without Jonathan Lucroy playing a game in the navy blue and gold uniforms. That ship has sailed and the Brewers will usher in a new era behind… [More]

Trade Candidate Series: Jonathan Lucroy

When fans question the strength of a position in the Brewers order tis year, there has never been any legitimate worry about one of the most difficult positions to fill: catcher.  30-year old Jonathan Lucroy has been a mainstay in the order for the last… [More]

The Best of the Rest: A Brief History of Pitching Position Players

Martin Maldonado has had a memorable start to the season. So much so that David Schoenfield slyly suggested that Maldonado should be April’s the player of the month. Amongst his many accomplishments, Maldonado literally hit the cover off the ball, punched a Pirate, and pitched a… [More]

Predicting the Brewers Regression

Through one month, the Brewers are off to a 20-8 start. I can’t really explain how or why this happened, but it did. 5.5 games up on the Cardinals, they are the surprise team in baseball, and back-to-back comeback, extra inning wins in St. Louis convinced… [More]

Injuries, Roster Utilization, and the Brewers

The Brewers pulled off, arguably, their most impressive win of the season Monday night in St. Louis. Trailing 3-0 in the 7th inning against a dominant Michael Wacha, the Brewers plated three runs to tie the game. The bullpen kept the Cardinals offense scoreless for… [More]
