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]

Rebuilding in Two Easy Months

On July 27, my wife and I were enjoying the Olympic opening ceremonies at a neighborhood bar in Cleveland. Preparing for our impending move back to Wisconsin, we were celebrating our year in Ohio. Watching the Olympics seemed like an easy decision; the Brewers were… [More]

Notes and Charts on Wily Peralta’s Domination

Wily Peralta made one of the best starts of the Brewers season Sunday against the Mets, firing eight shutout innings with just two hits and a walk allowed, striking out five. Peralta has always had some level of tout from the prospect evaluators, at least… [More]

Narratives Revised: 2012, Peralta’s Strikes, 2008 Sheets

There is a new narrative overtaking the 2012 Brewers’ season, displacing our grave concerns of April and May. Gone are those Milwaukee nine of the replacement breed; our beloved club now carries their best bats. After warming throughout the season, the Brewers’ offense scored 203… [More]

Brewers add four more to September roster

With rosters expanded in September, the Brewers have slowly been adding pieces over the past few days. Eric Farris was promoted to replace Cody Ransom over the weekend, and as we reported on Sunday, Brandon Kintzler was added to the bullpen. Now, with the minor… [More]

Replacement City

In the 2011 National League, I counted 71 pitchers that worked 100+ innings primarily as starters (i.e., more than 50% of their appearances occurred in games started).
