No Strategy But Win

This has been a spectacularly strange beginning to the season: team streaks, bizarre baserunning, Rickie Weeks on kryptonite, Ryan Braun in full Adam Dunn mode. Like a lot of fans, I tend to place parameters on my hopes for an upcoming season. This season’s boundaries… [More]

Opposing Teams Aren’t Pitching Around Ryan Braun

Best Contracts in the NL Central

It’s only Wednesday, but the Brewers have already made waves twice this week with a couple interesting signings. First, with Monday’s complicated Kyle Lohse deal and then there was the “He’s back!” moment Tuesday when the team brought back one of the game’s great punchlines… [More]
