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!)

Efficiency and Yovani Gallardo

Adam McCalvy reported at MLB.com that the Milwaukee Brewers are looking to increase Yovani Gallardo’s efficiency. Ron Roenicke introduced an interesting idea while discussing Gallardo’s efficiency: “Sometimes it’s not throwing the nastiest pitch you have the first pitch…There’s a lot of guys that you don’t… [More]

Attanasio eyeing extensions for Melvin, Roenicke

Now that the Ryan Braun mess is settled (at least when it comes to knowing whether or not he’ll be on the field to start the year), the Brewers can turn their attention to other matters. According to Mark Attanasio, those matters include discussing extensions… [More]

Brewers Lose 5-4, Leave About 1.0746 Runs on the Field

I’ve written about 2500 words on baserunning at You Know, And That this week. Time to spread the wealth here. The Brewers lost 5-4 last night and most of the fault for the loss should fairly go to either: Shaun Marcum, who gave up a… [More]
