Lind Out / 3 RHP In

Brewers roster-building fanatics and prospect heads waited through a quiet Tuesday, but were rewarded with a surprising trade for 1B Adam Lind to Seattle. I say “surprising” because the Brewers did not go for an MLB-level buy-low candidate (like Marco Estrada in the original Lind… [More]

Payroll & Revenue Growth

Payroll & Revenue Growth

Yesterday, I advocated for full revenue sharing in the MLB, which is a measure that is necessary to benefit labor (by increasing the amount that a team will be able to spend on payroll, or perhaps mandating a spending level) and small market owners (who… [More]

Offensive Battles & Rebuilding

In 2015, the major culprit for the difficult Brewers campaign was the starting rotation. Really, unfortunately, the major culprit was ineffectiveness among a couple of veteran pitchers, and then injuries and some first-full-season-adjustments by young organizational arms. On the offensive side, injuries were really the… [More]

Gallardo & Estrada 2: Adjustments

Pitching coach Rick Kranitz was one of several coaches fired by the Brewers to open the 2015-2016 offseason. Given the rough campaigns by Matt Garza and Kyle Lohse, as well as some other question marks (Wily Peralta‘s “dead arm” / mechanics; overall fastball struggles across… [More]

Gallardo & Estrada 1: Front Office & Coaches

Martin Perez, David Price, Cole Hamels, and Marcus Stroman: these are the four pitchers that former Brewers starters Yovani Gallardo and Marco Estrada have out-pitched during their 2015 American League Divisional Series.

With another strong start in Arizona — even in a tough loss, Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann catapulted himself into a Top 30 WAR ranking against all other MLB pitchers. Consider this: based on WAR alone, Jungmann is a #1 ranking starter in 2015, having produced… [More]

Thursday Round-Up: Draft, Kirby, Nelson, 2014 Trades

Last night, our beloved Milwaukee Nine cast aside their terrible season and performed another evening of solid baseball, dismissing the contending New York Mets once more. Surely, one must cue the “we can’t even beat the lowly Brewers” talk from New York fans and media,… [More]

Taylor Jungmann’s Fastball

After his excellent debut, Taylor Jungmann earned his first “tough loss” of the season, as Max Scherzer, the Washington Nationals big-contract ace, nearly no-hit the Brewers. Jungmann hardly pitched poorly, however, and managed to get himself out of trouble a couple of times. Unfortunately, the… [More]

Tyler Cravy: Best Brewers Debut?

Let’s forget the offensive woes for a moment, and praise Tyler Cravy for his exceptional Major League debut. Last night, the organizational righty worked each of his pitches against the Cardinals, varying speeds and planes to confound Cardinals batters. While BaseballAmerica suggested a sinker /… [More]

Building & Rebuilding #6 (Reprise): Depth

Since Brewers President of Baseball Operations & GM Doug Melvin traded Yovani Gallardo and signed Neal Cotts, the 40-man roster has undergone changes that reshape some of the team’s peripheral depth. First, and foremost, the Brewers made two moves to clear roster space for their… [More]
