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 […]

Brewers Ticket Prices Well Below Season Average For Pittsburgh Series

The Milwaukee Brewers haven’t had the start they had hoped for to get the 2015 MLB season going. Hosting a potent Colorado Rockies offense, Milwaukee’s pitching struggled to keep up in a rough 3-0 series sweep that included a 10-0 shutout loss on Opening Day. Milwaukee’s pitching got rocked over the first three games of […]

Rally Bus Makes Attending a Brewers Game More Fun and Convenient

After closing out their season-opening series against the Colorado Rockies with an 0-3 record, the Milwaukee Brewers remain at home for a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates this upcoming weekend.

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 […]

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 […]

Brewers Look to Rebound in 2015; Opening Day Tickets Start at $48

The Milwaukee Brewers want to take the next step and compete at a high level for 162 games as opposed to last season when the Brewers were in first place of the National League Central Division past the halfway mark in the season, going 51-33 in their first 84 games, but could not stay 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 […]

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 […]
