10 Best Brewers Wins of 2014

With the Great Collapse of 2014 still a fresh memory, it may be hard to recall that the Brewers had some bloody terrific wins this year. Below is my list of the top ten.  Notably, all of these came before the last week of August, when the Brewers began digging a hole they would not […]

Bobble Head Rain Checks Redeemable until End of 2014

Way back in April I got a rain check for the Carlos Gomez bobble head at Miller Park, and since then it’s been something of a winding saga of uncertainty as to when I’d receive the item. Apparently the Brewers experienced shortages during the giveaway of bobble heads featuring Kyle Lohse, Scooter Gennett and the […]

The Picture of Jonathan Broxton

As long weekends go, this past Labor Day holiday was particularly unenjoyable for Brewers fans. As Milwaukee’s losing streak stretched to six, the club has slipped behind St. Louis in the NL Central race. In order to stem the recent reverses, GM Doug Melvin pulled off an unusual intradivisional trade at the waiver Trade Deadline. […]

The Brewers Can’t Let Tim Dillard Go (At Least Not Permanently)

As I write this on Wednesday evening, the Brewers’ AAA affiliate Nashville Sounds are playing their last game at Greer Stadium, which the team called home for 37 years.  They’ll start the 2015 season in a new stadium, which naturally was financed by the usual indefensible corporate welfare.

Three Call-ups Who Could Help Brewers

Roster expansion on September 1 stands as one of the most unique events in all of sports. MLB allows teams to stretch their September rosters from 25 to 40 men, remaining the only major sports league to adjust the roster size in-season. These September call-ups figure to play a very different role for the Brewers […]
