Ryan Braun makes 5th All-Star team, Zack Greinke snubbed

For the fifth consecutive season, Ryan Braun will be playing in the All-Star Game. For the first time, though, it will not be as a starter. In his first four appearances, Braun was the leading vote-getter among National League outfielders, and was the leading vote-getter… [More]

Trade Winds Begin To Swirl Around Greinke

Milwaukee avoided a series sweep in Cincinnati on Wednesday afternoon, taking advantage of a pair of home runs from Rickie Weeks and Cody Ransom en route to an 8-4 victory. With a record of 34-41, the Brewers climbed back to within 7.5 games of the first-place… [More]

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]

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]
