Reduce Mistakes, TOOTBLANs, and Brewers Even More Dangerous

At 15-5, the Brewers happily sit atop the NL Central division and have won more games than any team in baseball to this point.  Hell, they’ve already won more games than they did in all of April last year (14).  They have combined power, clutch hitting, good starting pitching and an excellent relief corps into […]


Analysis: Why Do Brewers Seem to Own Pittsburgh?

In all sports, good teams tend to have an opponent that they just own. Whether it is the Red Auerbach-era Boston Celtics beating the Los Angeles Lakers in seven different NBA Finals, or the 1927 Yankees going 21-1 against the hapless St. Louis Browns, teams often match up well against a given rival. In recent […]


When Matt Garza Becomes Wario Matt Garza – [TheBrewersBar-016]

Welcome to this season’s first official Brewers Theme Music event! As you may or may not remember from last season, this is a semi-regular feature of mine where I base an instrumental (in most cases, although, not all. There was that embarrassing singing attempt out of spring training) on either a player, possibly a mascot […]


Lucroy Fortifies his Patience at the Plate in 2014

Before the season, it would have taken a lot of Leinenkugel’s for even Bernie Brewer to predict that the team would have baseball’s best record. After this hot start, you would certainly be justified in praising nearly any player on the roster. However, one guy that stands out in particular is catcher Jonathan Lucroy. After […]

Yovani Gallardo – In Support of LGBT Marriage Equality

I’ll admit, I’m over a year and-a-half behind on this news, but, it turns out Milwaukee Brewers RHP, Yovani Gallardo (who is off to a nice start this season-including 30th amongst MLB starters in WAR, with a 0.3 fWAR in just 2 starts) lent his image and name to the worthy cause cause of marriage […]


Thoughts on “Baseball in the Dominican Republic: Jean Segura”

After last night’s Brewers/Pirates game, Fox Sports Wisconsin aired the first of three “Baseball in the Dominican Republic” specials that will focus on current – and perhaps future – Brewers.  I hadn’t read this story of the series’ origin until after the first episode aired.  It sounds like a fascinating project: The plan was to […]


Brewers Look to Keep Good Times Rolling Against Cliff Lee

Milwaukee Brewers starter Matt Garza had a bizarre outing on Wednesday night in Philadelphia, giving up eight hits, four runs and walking two, but he hung in there after some miscues on his part (a poor throw to second base and a balk among them) and some at-times shoddy defense behind him to pitch six […]


Ryan Braun’s Hand Specialist Gets Below Average Online Reviews

When Ryan Braun sat out the second game of the Red Sox series, he shared more detail about his thumb injury than he had previously.  Braun said two potential surgical options were unappealing, but that a third may be promising – except it hasn’t been done many times.  If Braun does eventually decide surgery is […]


The Brewers’ Latest Closer Controversy

For the second straight season, the Brewers have a closer controversy in early April. While last year Jim Henderson usurped the incumbent John Axford, now Henderson himself is on the hot seat. This time manager Ron Roenicke took a unique approach, evidently switching closers between Spring Training and Opening Day. Even the Brewers players were […]

Khris Davis – Fenway Illustration 4/6/14

Khris Davis’s diving catch to deny Jonny Gomes–(not illustrated)–a potential 1-out khrush hit (b4th inning) was one of the many reasons to believe Khris Davis enjoyed his great all-around series at Fenway Park immensely.
