The WAR between Studs and Bums

On Wednesday night, Carlos Gomez went 4-5 with two triples, three runs scored, and three RBIs — a mighty successful day at the office for the Brewers’ center fielder. Gomez continues to build on a strong finish to the 2012 season and appears to be… [More]

Wily Peralta’s Release Points and Sliders

From the get-go, the Los Angeles Dodgers hit Wily Peralta yesterday. Carl Crawford started the damage by singling off of Peralta’s very first offering. The next two outs would be Peralta’s best sanctuary from the Dodgers’ offense, and the lonely first inning run simply foreshadowed… [More]

Improving the Current Starting Rotation

Coming into the 2013 season, it was commonly said that the Milwaukee Brewers would only go as far as the starting rotation would take them. The offense would score plenty of runs and the bullpen would be improved, but the question marks centered around the… [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]

Pitching Logic: Destroying the NL Central

I think it’s in the nature of hometown fans to think in completely critical ways, or completely uncritical ways about their home teams. In a sport like baseball, it doesn’t seem like we spend that much more time with our teams than other sports; after… [More]

Quality against Quantity: Shuffling the Rotation

After signing Tom Gorzelanny, Burke Badenhop, and a gang of minor league relievers, and (thankfully?) losing out on starting pitching free agents such as Ryan Dempster or Francisco Liriano, it is apparent that the Brewers are going to trust their young core of starters. These… [More]

Brewers eliminated from playoff race, but optimism for 2013

In the end, early- and mid-season struggles were just too much to overcome for the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers were eliminated from playoff contention with their 7-0 loss to the Houston Astros, but those postseason dreams would have died anyway with St. Louis’ win… [More]
