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]

Rounding the Bases: A Good Working Relationship

Welcome to Rounding the Bases, a weekly column where writers Ryan Topp and Steve Garczynski participate in a discussion on one baseball topic. This week, how do managers and general managers get along?. You can follow @RyanTopp and @SteveGarczynski on Twitter. Steve Garczynski: The Milwaukee Brewers followed up losing… [More]

What Kind Of Team Is ’13 Brewers?

The 1987 Brewers have gone down in franchise history as “Team Streak”. The 1987 team established the “Team Streak” identity early in the season. Right out of the gates, they won their first 13 games, which still ties the 1982 Atlanta Braves for most consecutive… [More]

Narratives and Questions About Winning

More than anything else, baseball allows us to tell stories. Even after we think about all the factors, analyze performances, and form our opinions about baseball, our experience of baseball moves beyond that realm of calculation. While there is not much that happens on a… [More]

Throwing Out the Bullpen

This summer, one key rule has kept our humble Ohio City home in order: when the Brewers are leading after 7, GO TO BED! It’s a useful rule, given that Brewers games typically start around 8:10 PM on eastern time, and it ensures that I… [More]

Halfway Already? The Path to a Winning Season

Another day, another wild, high-scoring affair between the Brewers and Miami Marlins. I’m certain that we could find symbolism between the 2012 halfway point and American Independence, spurring one of the greatest outlaw nations in the world. At the very least, if the Brewers are… [More]

In Defense of Bunting (but Just a Little)

It seems that I’ve gone and started something on twitter. You know, Twitter, the place where you get to express deep, complex thoughts in 140 character bursts. Anyway, during Wednesday’s bunt-fest extraordinaire, I defended the tactical soundness of Carlos Gomez’s bunt in the 6th by remarking: @n_prill Oh,… [More]

Brewers give extensions to Doug Melvin, Ron Roenicke

Things have been a bit tumultuous in Brewer Land over the past week or two, but owner Mark Attanasio provided a bit of long-term certainty on Tuesday, inking Doug Melvin and Ron Roenicke to contract extensions. Melvin will now be under contract through the 2015… [More]

The Great Ron Roenicke Swindle (and another Braun rant!)

Dateline, unknown. Deep in a training facility somewhere in the vast Milwaukee Brewers organization, manager Ron Roenicke, owner Mark Attanasio, and general manager Doug Melvin sit at a table in a dimly lit room. RR: Geez, can’t someone get better lights in here? MA: Sorry,… [More]

2012 Preview: Milwaukee Brewers, Part II

If you had asked me — and other Brewers fans — about the Brewers’ long term chances of competing after the 2009 and 2010 seasons, I would have said, “good luck.” Like others, I felt that the club had too many weaknesses to fill in… [More]
