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 […]

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 […]

Verdict on First Episode of “Brewers on Tap” Podcast: Harmless Amusement

In case you missed it, the Brewers launched their first official podcast last week.  Hosted by new broadcaster Jeff Levering, “Brewers on Tap” will be available for free download every Wednesday.  When Levering was first hired, his highest profile responsibility was filling in for Bob Uecker on road trips, but it was also said that […]

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 […]
