Firing a Manager Brings Out the Worst in (Some) Fans

I’m generally not a fan of firing managers/coaches in any sport.  I’m skeptical that “shaking things up” is the best way to turn around a losing team…but it certainly seems to be a common practice, so what the hell do I know?  I’m not sure what Ron Roenicke could have done to stop Kyle Lohse […]

Brewers Boosting Doubters Early

Before the season started, there was a lot of fiery talk from the Brewers brass.  They were going to build on their “150 days” of first-place fortitude, dadgummit, they were going to use the disappointment of 2014’s conclusion to figure things out successfully in 2015.  And hopefully they’d have a good start to the season […]

What to Make of Brewers Involvement with Problematic DARE Program?

Despite the decades-old wisdom of Charles Barkley, many people continue to think of professional athletes as role models.  A lot of the work done by sports teams and players is certainly admirable – the Brewers Community Foundation has a great reputation for its charitable programs, and plenty of individual players are engaged in their own […]

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 […]

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 […]
