The Best Brewers Rotation in Recent Memory

I’ll bet you thought this was going to be another rah-rah piece for Matt Garza and the 2014 Brewers rotation. Nope. Instead, I want to talk Brewers history, and question whether Doug Melvin is being judged a bit harshly in hindsight for his inability to… [More]

Brewers Arbitration Estimates

Last week, I examined the size of the wallet the Brewers will be wielding this off-season. I turned out the team’s pockets and helped hunt for change in the couch cushion. In the end, the rough estimate was that the Brewers would have around $13M… [More]
