Correia finished 2014 with the Dodgers.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Burton, Perez, Wright could Help Crew Bullpen

Recently I picked five pitchers from the Yahoo free-agent checklist that could be possible fits for the Brewers. I was going to write a post based on the five: starters Brett Anderson and Gavin Floyd, swingman and former Brewer Chris Capuano, and relievers Jared Burton and Chris Perez. However, owing to the pace with which […]

Brewers Sign Willy Wonka to Major League Deal

BREAKING: Shattering the malaise of the Milwaukee Brewers’ offseason slumber is the news that Willy Wonka, the right-handed pitcher formerly of the Fudge Room Chocolatiers organization of the Roald Dahl League (Wales), has signed a major league contract. Wonka, 27, has pitched nearly 1,100 innings as a starter in the aforementioned league, which plays under […]

Maybe Corey Hart Could Platoon with Adam Lind

In Adam Lind the Brewers currently have a left-handed-hitting first baseman who’s expected to play a lot.  That solid foundation is a nice change of pace from the scrum of players the team has tried at the position in recent years.  However, the Brewers lack a clear partner for Lind at first base, a player […]

Brewers’ Hot Stove Mumbles Softly

Things to read after shooting your wad…. The Milwaukee Brewers have traded for a left-handed-hitting platoon first baseman to replace their previous left-handed-hitting platoon first baseman. Aging but professional third baseman Aramis Ramirez and enigmatic but soulful starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo will be Brewers to start the 2015 campaign. Athletic but confounding second baseman Rickie […]

Homer-Dependent Teams Rarely Win World Series

During the broadcast of the Orioles-Royals series Tuesday, I was struck by a stat mentioned regarding the Royals and their small-ball ways. Since 1985, only one team (2009 Yankees) has won the World Series after leading MLB in home runs during that regular season. For Doug Melvin, that number (1) should be a keen warning. […]

All Quiet on the Roenicke Front

The situation remains quiet regarding the Brewers front office’s decision on the future of manager Ron Roenicke and the rest of the coaching staff. This lull in offseason decision making is a dead zone when it comes to public information, but undoubtedly it gives Brewers owner Mark Attanasio and GM Doug Melvin time to meet […]
