5 New Questions About the 2014 Brewers

Before the season started, I had 10 Questions About the 2014 Brewers.  It’s interesting in hindsight to see what I was concerned about at the time.  In many cases, the players I was unsure of have exceeded expectations – including Khris Davis, Aramis Ramirez, and Matt Garza.  Now that more than half of the 2014 season […]

Ex-Brewer Prince Fielder Comfortable in own Skin

Former Brewers slugger Prince Fielder adorns the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s “Body” Issue, which comes around on July 11.  You may have already heard that, surprise!  He’s partially nude.  Well, pretty much totally nude except for certain private parts.  You know what?  Prince is cool with his body, and he’s not afraid to show […]

Naked Truth: Ramirez, Gomez Don’t Deserve All-Star Starts

In all sports, the unveiling of All-Star rosters draws attention to the perceived snubs. This summer, baseball fans will gripe about excluded players such as Ian Kinsler and complain about studs like Chris Sale suffering the humiliation of a runoff. Many may wonder if Devin Mesoraco is truly a better catcher than former MVP Buster […]

Buck Martinez and the Infinite Loop…

I’d wanted to do something funny involving Buck Martinez because I figured some of my friends who are Blue Jays fans might get a kick out of it -and/or- I’m upset the Brewers lost today, so I’m getting revenge…or, both (and, I wish them a Happy Canada Day, regardless), so I drew made this picture […]

Breaking Down Wily Peralta’s 5-0 June

Based on the start of this season, the baseball gods appear to have mixed feelings toward Wily Peralta. The Dominican right-hander caught some bad breaks in the first two months of the year, receiving just four wins despite a sparkling 2.73 ERA. Yet in June, although Peralta’s ERA ballooned by a run and a half, […]

Is “God Bless America” in the 7th Inning Permanent?

With the Washington Nationals in town, my thoughts turn to our nation’s capital and its most famous exports – burdensome attempts at social engineering, paternalistic rules that are unequally enforced, excessive regulations that benefit powerful interests, shortsighted laws with destructive unintended consequences, and never-ending reminders that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  […]

How Do Brewers Stack up Against NL Division Leaders?

“If the season ended today” certainly ranks among the least useful expressions in sports. With many months of plot twists remaining in baseball’s marathon season, a glance at the standings in June offers little meaningful information. Yet with Milwaukee playing Washington in a high-profile meeting of division leaders, fans cannot help but drool over a […]

Revisiting the Aoki-Smith Swap with Josh Duggan

After nearly three months of the 2014 season, the December 2013 Nori Aoki-Will Smith trade between the Milwaukee Brewers and Kansas City Royals looks like a brilliant move for Brewers GM Doug Melvin.  Smith has been a crucial part of the Brewers bullpen, but the lineup has shown a lingering vacancy in terms of a […]
