Curious Cases of Compensation: Trade Value and Draft Picks

Last week, Ryan Topp pointed me in the right direction regarding Zack Greinke‘s trade value and compensatory picks. I wrote my article under the assumption that the Brewers would trade Zack Greinke, as well as the reserve rights that result in compensatory picks (if the… [More]

Cutter City and Contract Considerations

Last night, I noticed that Zack Greinke’s moving fastball showed up frequently during his start. The right-handed ace-once-again went cutter crazy upon announcing his new pitch, selecting it more than 19% of the time during his April starts. As a result, approximately 71% of Greinke’s… [More]

Greinke’s 12 K’s Fuel Victory

Zach Greinke set a personal best as a Brewer with 12 strikeouts, helping the Crew shut out the lowly Cubs 8-0 Wednesday night at Miller Park. Greinke (7-2, 3.13) worked seven sparkling innings, allowing just two hits, two walks and no runs to pick up… [More]

Aces Central!

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]

Brewers Round Up: May 10, 2012

The Brewers lost to the Reds in heartbreaking fashion yesterday, wasting a phenomenal start by Zack Greinke and failing to capitalize with runners on base in the bottom of the 9th. The Reds took the series from the Brewers, who receive a much-needed day off… [More]

Just how good was Zack Greinke’s start?

The Brewers came up short of a win again on Wednesday, but it wasn’t by any fault of Zack Greinke’s. By the numbers, it’s not crazy to say that Milwaukee not only wasted Greinke’s best start as a Brewer, but possibly one of the best… [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]

Switchin’ Pitches: He Throws WHAT?

While researching Zack Greinke’s pitch f/x stats Monday night, and thinking up a grand scheme for Tuesday morning’s cutter article, I asked a huge question, and then filed it in the back of my mind: how many MLB pitchers added a new pitch at some… [More]

Battlin’ Zack and his Cutter

Heading into Monday night’s contest against the Houston nine, it seemed like every previous start by Zack Greinke proved to be fodder for either extreme in the “sign him / don’t sign him” debate. If you’re like me, last night’s start was PERFECT: finally, a… [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]
