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 […]

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 […]

What to Make of Brewers Involvement with Problematic DARE Program?

Despite the decades-old wisdom of Charles Barkley, many people continue to think of professional athletes as role models.  A lot of the work done by sports teams and players is certainly admirable – the Brewers Community Foundation has a great reputation for its charitable programs, and plenty of individual players are engaged in their own […]

New Miller Park Experience Includes Some Real Buzzkills

As the great poet Zooey Deschanel observed, change is hard.  Other less accomplished individuals have pointed out that change is constant, change is inevitable.  Whether or not change is good is subjective and debatable. With that in mind, after attending all three Brewers/Rockies games (before the series I was hoping for a sweep, and boy […]

10 Questions About the 2015 Brewers

Last year at this time, the Brewers were coming off a miserable 2013 season during which their star player was suspended for PED use and the team was never in contention after May.  There was little reason for hope, and yet the 2014 Brewers got off to a scorching start and would have been the […]

Are Sports Journalists Too Cozy with the Teams They Cover?

The JSonline chats with Brewers beat writers Tom Haudricourt and Todd Rosiak are usually good reads.  There’s still a fair amount of frivolous babble that would be more appropriate for sports talk radio callers, but there are always a couple of decent questions mixed in.  Case in point – the chat with Rosiak earlier this […]

Miller Park Tax Update Reminds Us That Stadium Subsidies Never Die

Although I haven’t traveled extensively to other MLB stadiums, I have rarely had a bad experience at Miller Park.  It’s the entertainment venue I frequent more than any other, and if I were to try and add up all the money I’ve spent there over the years it would probably give me pause. As much […]
