Selig Experience Message: Seeking Corporate Welfare is Heroic

The multimedia Selig Experience opened at Miller Park on Friday, the latest and most attention-demanding measure to perpetually honor the former Brewers team owner and MLB commissioner.  Putting a statue and a plaque outside the stadium were hardly enough – only a permanent shrine with state-of-the-art 3D hologram technology is a fitting tribute to Selig.  […]

Memorial Day Thought: Too Much Easy Patriotism at MLB Games?

Memorial Day is a time when Americans are supposed to honor the sacrifices of the U.S. military.  We all pay our respects differently, and there’s no right or wrong way to express gratitude for fallen soldiers and those who are currently serving.  If you go to a fair number of baseball games, you’ve probably noticed […]

Scooter Gennett Demoted from Kids Club?

With Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett’s recent demotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the diminutive player also may have lost his place as the face of the team’s “Kids Club.” Earlier this month an email was sent out advertising the benefits of the Kids Club, which does have its merits to be sure.  It’s interesting, though, […]

Open the Roof, Brewers

I’ve railed against the excessive closing of Miller Park’s roof in the past, and unfortunately I have cause to do so again. I’ll admit it: I just don’t get it. I was reminded recently of a conversation I had with a fellow Brewers fan at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium years ago during which we both […]

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - MARCH 11:   Shortstop Luis Sardinas #62 of the Milwaukee Brewers throws to first base over Casey McGehee #14 of the San Francisco Giants to complete a double play during the fourth inning of a Cactus League game at Scottsdale Stadium on March 11, 2015 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Sardinas Callup First Official Glimpse into Gallardo Trade

A report from Todd Rosiak of the Journal Sentinel details how shortstop Luis Sardinas will be called up from the minor leagues to replace Jean Segura, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a finger injury. Obviously yet another injury to a starting player is bad news for the Brewers, who just can’t seem […]

Firing a Manager Brings Out the Worst in (Some) Fans

I’m generally not a fan of firing managers/coaches in any sport.  I’m skeptical that “shaking things up” is the best way to turn around a losing team…but it certainly seems to be a common practice, so what the hell do I know?  I’m not sure what Ron Roenicke could have done to stop Kyle Lohse […]
