Brewers Make Uncharacteristic Cuts

In a surprising set of moves the Brewers elected to option first base backup candidates Matt Clark and Jason Rogers to the minor leagues Tuesday, along with reliever Rob Wooten. It seems somewhat un-Brewers-like to send both Clark and Rogers to AAA Colorado Springs when one of them would have provided some pop on a […]

Kicking Tires on the Cardinals with C70

Enrique and I played some “pepper” again this year with Daniel of C70 At The Bat: Check it out.  In exchange for some thoughts on the Brewers’ upcoming season over at C70, Daniel provided some great answers to questions we had about the Cardinals heading into the 2015 campaign.  You can follow Daniel’s work on the Cardinals […]

Twin Killing an Option in June for Brewers Fans in Twin Cities

(Photo: Saintsbaseball.com) The Brewers will visit Target Field in Minneapolis on the weekend of June 5-7 this season, as Milwaukee’s more traditional home-and-home weekend series matchups with the Twins return. 2015 features an opportunity to not only catch Brewers baseball in Minneapolis during a weekend series but baseball in St. Paul as well in the form of […]

Spotlight: Tom Petty, the King of Milwaukee

My friend Seth gave me some Super Stars MusiCards from the “Pro Set,” duplicates of ones he already possesses because he owns the full set.  One of which, Tom Petty, I will profile here in what could become an ongoing series.  These cards are pretty cool. As the back of the card indicates, Petty formed […]

Brewers Defense and Baserunning: Yuck

Watching the Milwaukee Brewers thus far this spring mostly has been a series of headshakes and handwringing.  They beat the Reds today, a nice change of pace, but the play in the field this spring has been notable because it’s been a little too flawed. There was another error in Tuesday’s game, unfortunately.  That brings their spring […]

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 […]
