Killing Yovani With Patience

Right-hander Yovani Gallardo¬†threw one of his most bizarre outings of the year. He only allowed two hits and struck out six batters through six innings, but also walked six and allowed two runs. It took him 27 pitches to navigate through the first inning, and… [More]

Balance and Blame: What’s going on!?!?

On May 6, 2011, the greatest Milwaukee Brewers team in franchise history sat in last place in the National League Central. The club struggled to stay afloat after their prolonged winless start, and they flat-out sputtered to a halt to open May. From April 30… [More]

Brewers April Round Up

I have to admit, I was concerned about writing this morning. Now that we’re out in the eastern time zone, the west coast games practically start after we’re asleep. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I accidentally left my computer volume and GameDay window open,… [More]

Early Season Trends To Watch

We are only three weeks into the regular season, so the sample sizes are not large enough to make concrete arguments about anyone’s performance. We can, however, begin to identify interesting trends that have developed over the past three weeks and track them to see… [More]

Brewers Round ‘Em Up: The Great Strike Zone Conspiracy

Haven’t done one of these in a while; you all have been subjected to my crazy labor rants, stats excursions, and sessions of throwing-spaghetti-on-the-wall. Lucky for you, a part of my community service agreement (we won’t go there) requires that I have the decency to… [More]

Randy Wolf is a Better Pitcher than Zack Greinke

In 2009, Zack Greinke pitched one of the greatest seasons in the “live ball era” by a pitcher 25 or younger. Facing 915 batters, Greinke struck out more than 240 batters, walked only 51, and allowed 11 home runs. Allowing 64 runs in nearly 230… [More]

Brewers set rotation to start 2012

Many people could have guessed it by looking at the spring schedule, but the Brewers made their starting rotation to start the season official on Wednesday. Yovani Gallardo will take the ball on Opening Day for the third straight season. He’ll be followed by Zack… [More]

2012 Preview: Milwaukee Brewers, Part II

If you had asked me — and other Brewers fans — about the Brewers’ long term chances of competing after the 2009 and 2010 seasons, I would have said, “good luck.” Like others, I felt that the club had too many weaknesses to fill in… [More]

Building and Rebuilding: NL Central Contract Cores

While working on my 2012 NL Central previews, it occurred to me that the teams can be compared to one another for their contractual cores, as well as their 2012 rosters. The more I research these rosters, the more it amazes me how close some… [More]
