Gammons Report: K-Rod to decline arby

Francisco Rodriguez thinks of himself as a closer. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if he thought he was an all-time great closer. With that in mind, the Brewers offered Rodriguez arbitration, hoping to collect on some compensation picks. They were counting on K-Rod’s ego winning out over common sense. Apparently,

Brewers lose Jerry Hairston to Dodgers

While the Brewers continue their search for a shortstop, one familiar face that could have filled the role is moving on. Infielder Jerry Hairston, Jr. is signing with the Dodgers for 2 years and $6 million,

Octavio Dotel tells ESPN Brewers are showing interest

With three big pieces of last year’s excellent bullpen possibly leaving via free agency, it’s no secret the Brewers are looking for bullpen help. According to ESPN Deportes, it looks like there’s some mutual interest between the Brewers and right-hander Octavio Dotel. Unlike a lot of rumors this time of year, it appears this one […]

How likely is a Casey McGehee bounceback?

The Brewers have somewhere around a million questions surrounding their team and what they will do with it this offseason, and somewhere in the middle of all of them is Casey McGehee. After being a key contributor in 2009 and 2010, the third baseman fell off a (very high) cliff last year, to the tune […]

Brewers keep hitting coach hire in the family

With Dale Sveum leaving to take over the Chicago Cubs, the Brewers needed a new hitting coach. Monday, they hired Johnny Narron, the older brother of bench coach Jerry Narron. We don’t know a whole lot about Johnny Narron, so it’s hard to write much about the move. We know he’s coming from Texas, where […]

Brewers Spotify playlist

If you’re like me, the first month of the offseason has been pretty rough. There’s not a lot going on, and next season seems so far away. I also like music and messing around with playlists in Spotify, so I threw together a Brewers-themed playlist using the songs Brewers players used during the 2011 season. […]

Ryan Braun is Not Your Friendo

Ryan Braun appeared on MLB Network to talk about his MVP award. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like anyone paid attention to what he was saying, because they were too focused on his awful haircut. By the end of the year, Braun was rocking a pretty solid mullet. So far this season, it’s gotten worse. He’s […]

NL MVP debate: Ryan Braun vs. Matt Kemp

Ryan Braun was named the National League’s Most Valuable Player by the BBWAA on Tuesday, beating out Matt Kemp with 20 of the 32 first place votes. Braun is the third Brewer to ever win the award, joining Rollie Fingers and Robin Yount. The selection doesn’t come without a bit of controversy, though, as there […]

Exploring the shortstop trade market

With Clint Barmes now a Pirate and most of the other free agent shortstops apparently priced out of the club’s range, it’s safe to say that the Brewers’ offseason shortstop hunt hasn’t quite gone as planned. At this point, most followers of the club are largely over the thought of the club bringing in a […]

Barmes nearing deal with Bucs; where do Brewers look next?

The Pittsburgh Pirates appear to be on the verge of signing free agent shortstop Clint Barmes to a multi-year deal, likely taking another free agent option off the list for the Brewers. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers and Giants were both in play, but it sounds like the Pirates were willing to make the […]

Knobler: Brewers could extend Greinke, Marcum, Axford

If you still aren’t willing to accept the fact that Prince Fielder is gone, here’s another piece of news to chew on — Danny Knobler of CBS Sports is saying the Brewers may continue to use the Prince Fund to keep players who want to stick around, as they entertain the idea of offering extensions […]
