Why I’m Concerned About Nyjer Morgan at the Plate

Doug Melvin wheeled and dealed his way to an NL Central pennant in 2011. He augmented the starting rotation with the notable acquisitions of Shaun Marcum and Zack Greinke, though the two best trades are seldom mentioned as significant contributors to the Brewers’ success. During the… [More]

2012 Preview: Milwaukee Brewers, Part I

Along with the rest of the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers’ run environment has declined, meaning that from their Wild Card appearance through their Division Championship, the Brewers’ offense remained consistently above average. 2008: 750 RS (Brewers) / 721 RS (league/park) 2009: 785 RS (Brewers)… [More]

Boggs Gets Outrighted Again and Again and Again

Brewers Claim SS Josh Wilson from the Diamondbacks

Hello, Disciples of Uecker. Jack, er, Mr. Moore recently reached out to me about writing here. I demanded a huge salary. He said no. I acquiesced. Jack drives a hard bargain. Here I am. In case you did not notice – which is completely understandable… [More]

Game 10 Thought: The Nationals Have Good Players

The perception among many Brewers fans coming into this series is probably that anything less than a sweep is a disappointment, given how poor the Washington Nationals have been the last few years. Although I do agree that losing the series would be a very… [More]
