Kevin Correia Would Look Neat on Minor League Deal

Milwaukee traded longtime starter Yovani Gallardo for three young players in January.  The Brewers saved some money in the transaction and theoretically opened up a rotation spot for Jimmy Nelson. Unfortunately, the side effect of the Gallardo deal was that it seriously weakened the starting pitching depth for the club.  The Brewers now have question marks at the sixth […]

Brewers Could Sign K-Rod Soon

Much has been said about Francisco (“K-Rod”) Rodriguez this offseason, and most of it has been critical of his many home runs given up during the 2014 season.  While K-Rod did give up an unsavory 14 home runs last year in 68 innings, that number, despite any decline in velocity, would seem to be an aberration rather than a […]

Bold Talk from Brewers, but it could Backfire

http://gty.im/485755411 In a recent article, Brewers officials again have talked about moving on and moving up in the baseball world following their historically awful collapse in 2014.  Manager Ron Roenicke is quoted by beat writer Adam McCalvy as saying: “We need to move on and hopefully we can have the same kind of start, be […]

Theme Nights Latest Value Add at Miller Park

(Photos: Brewers.com) As if the Milwaukee Brewers weren’t giving enough to fans who like “stuff,” what with loads of bobbleheads, gnomes and T-shirts, the team introduced the 2015 Theme Nights on Tuesday, and they are spectacular.  Theme Nights revolve, as you’d expect, around a theme and feature an exclusive freebie item with a special ticket […]

The Matheny Manifesto: Not As Bad As I Hoped

If not for the power of targeted internet advertising, I would not have known that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny put out a book last week called The Matheny Manifesto.  For the last several days I’ve been bombarded by ads trying to attract the click of my mouse with “a young manager’s old-school views on success […]

Speculating on the Future of Rickie Weeks

(Getty Images) Per this Darren Wolfson tweet from earlier today, the Twins apparently are among the majority of teams not interested in former Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks, or at least not keen on what Weeks’ camp has requested thus far in terms of dollars or longevity of contract. None of this will surprise Brewers […]

LUUUUUUC, I’m Not Your Sponsor!

(Getty Images) Last year on this very date I posted proudly regarding The Brewers Bar’s sponsorship of the player pages of current Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy and former Brewer Charlie Moore on Baseball-Reference.com. A year ago the prospect that Lucroy would go unsponsored on B-Ref when all that was required was $60 was too much […]

Brewers On Deck 2015: Not Bad for Not Free

Last year, I attended my first Brewers On Deck, and thought it was worth well more than the price of admission – which, as you may recall, was $0.  They were charging again this year, but based on previous experience the $15 price of an advance ticket seemed like a fair deal.  Upon arrival, it didn’t […]

Gallardo’s “Best” Game: April 29, 2009 vs. the Pirates

Reports first surfaced in the middle of the NFC Championship game that a trade was in the works to send Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers.  Yesterday, it became official: Gallardo is on his way to the Lone Star State in exchange for three players, two of which were Top 20 prospects in the Rangers […]

Best to Keep Sports and Politics Separate

I don’t know how to quantify this, but I’ve long assumed Jonathan Lucroy is the most popular Brewer.  Sure, Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez were voted into the All-Star Game last year, but I sense that Lucroy has broader appeal.  If there were a tool for measuring crush/man-crush intensity among Milwaukee baseball fans, I bet […]

What Other Brewers Broadcasters Are Wall of Honor Worthy?

Yesterday, the Brewers announced that the latest inductee to their Wall of Honor would be longtime TV color analyst Bill Schroeder.  I was a bit surprised upon first hearing the news.  Based on my understanding of Wall of Honor qualifications, Schroeder was 800+ plate appearances and/or one Hall of Fame induction short of meeting inclusion […]

10 Crap Brewers Items They’d Like to Sell You

It was around this time last winter when I did a post about the most useless Milwaukee Brewers items for sale on the Internet. I believe it was a shout-out in an echo chamber similar to that of the Brewers’ current offseason. Recently I came upon a post at the KC blog Royals Review, which […]
