The Brewers’ Busy Week: Free Agents, Arbitration, and Payroll

The Brewers were busy last week. The team landed Mark Reynolds, who, despite signing a minor league deal, is expected to compete and possibly platoon with Juan Francisco at first base. Left-handed reliever Zach Duke also signed a minor league contract with the club and… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Brewers Batting Order, Hall of Fame, Roenicke

“Given the current roster, what is your preferred batting order?” -@acmccabe To make everything less complicated, I’m going to set my lineup adjusted for platoons at second and first base. I’ll put my lineup out there and then explain some of my thought process. Segura,… [More]

Checking in on the Chosen Juan

A few days before Christmas, the Brewers opened up a spot on their 40-man roster by sending Michael Olmsted outright to Nashville. Olmsted made a strong impression during last year’s spring training but couldn’t get traction in AAA. In 52.1 IP for Nashville, Olmsted managed… [More]

The Brewers unfortunately experienced one of the latter on Wednesday evening against the Cubs. The ninth inning is not what… [More]

The Brewers’ Central Problem

I don’t need to tell you that it’s bad for the Brewers, right now. Their team ERA is 4.55, worst in the National League. Prior to Thursday’s game, the Brewers’ high-powered offense was only hitting .243 with runners in scoring position, which is lower than… [More]

Series Preview: Shuffling Cards

Taking the bad with the good, the Brewers offense generally hammered out runs and won at least one seesaw battle with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park. Unfortunately, that magic from Tuesday night wore off on Wednesday, and the offense could not produce one last… [More]

Ron Roenicke, Bunting, and Evolution

Baseball is a game practically tailor made to inspire passionate debate and few things spark more debate among it’s fans than managers decisions to bunt or abstain from bunting. Among the analytically inclined (like the writers on this site), bunting is more often than not frowned… [More]
