What a wonderful day off on Monday — a nice opportunity to let Wily Peralta‘s dominant outing sink in, but also to step away from Wild Card insanity for a moment. Now that’s that. The Brewers begin their final run of the season, a grueling… [More]

Aces Central!

After the Cincinnati Reds’ home run derby at Miller Park not 10 days ago, the Brewers’ rotation produced a complete turn around. Since that 7 IP, 5 R outing by Marco Estrada, no Brewers starter has worked fewer than 6 innings, and each starter has… [More]
