Game of the Year: Brewers vs Cardinals (7/11/14)

On Friday July 11, 2014, the Brewers welcomed the Cardinals into Miller Park to begin a big three-game series before the All-Star break. At 52-41, the Brewers were in first place, two games ahead of the Cards. A perch they had held for 89 consecutive… [More]

Brewers Go The Cardinal Way

The Brewers traded for Gerardo Parra on Thursday to help try and get them into the postseason. It wasn’t a particularly splashy move, as Parra is a somewhat limited player in his overall ability, but he possesses a few attributes that the Brewers think can… [More]

The Clobbering Cardinals

On Friday night, the Brewers exploded for a six run lead over the Cardinals. Unfortunately, the Cardinals clobbered four home runs to erase the deficit and eventually win, 7-6. After the Brewers’ fast start, the loss was unexpected, to say the least. Even more so… [More]

NL Central Rotations: Who’s Got the Stuff?

As pitchers rise through the minor leagues, fans are bombarded with projections of their supposed ceilings: “future ace”; “mid-rotation guy”; “back-end at best.” These are just that: projections. The projections tell us about the pitcher’s potential, but not usually where the pitcher is now.  That’s… [More]

NL Central Rotations: Who Can Stay Healthy?

The 2013 Detroit Tigers featured the most productive starting rotation since the 1997 Atlanta Braves, generating 25.5 Wins Above Replacement (Fangraphs fWAR). One reason is that the Tigers had five very talented pitchers. But another is that the Tigers enjoyed terrific health, and had only… [More]

Was John Axford tipping his pitches with the Brewers?

Ranking the Best (and Worst) Roster Cores in the NL Central

Earlier this week, Baseball Prospectus published my calculations and rankings of the “core” roster quality of all 30 teams. Having a strong “core” means not only having players who produce, but who also produce while they are under long-term control and preferably while at or… [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]

Where do NL Central Teams Stash their Cash?

Earlier this week, the folks at the LA Times put together a pretty sweet, interactive tool that can compare where each MLB team has spent its payroll for the 2013 season. I highly, highly recommend that you check it out. I find the disparity of… [More]

Miller Park’s Foul Ball Wall of Fame

It was the second inning of Friday’s game between the Brewers and Cardinals. Carlos Gomez stepped to the plate as the NL leader in batting average. After going 6-for-37 (.162 AVG) through the first nine games of the season, Gomez had gone on a tear…. [More]
