Twitter Mailbag: Morris, Rotation, Win Totals

“What to do you believe is Hunter Morris’ true ceiling?” — @mph343 Since the team announced Mat Gamel would miss the 2013 season with a torn ACL, this has become the most popular question in my Twitter feed. Ultimately, his ceiling remains slightly unclear because… [More]

Podcast, Episode 3.2: “Getting Back To This Podcast Thing”

After a longer layoff than expected, Ryan and I returned to your iDevice to talk some Brewers baseball. We were a little rusty, to be sure — I completely missed the housekeeping portion of the podcast introduction — but we hopefully shed some light on… [More]
