BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Series Preview: Brewers (73-63) at Cubs (61-76)

The Brewers started the season scorchingly hot and had a 20-8 record on May 1. Since then they’ve gone 53-55, are currently riding a five game losing streak, and are now tied with the (ugh) Cardinals for the division lead. I think the Pirates end up taking the division by season’s end but that big lead the Brewers built early in the year has given them a big cushion. (The new...

Brewers Prospect Nathan Orf Plays All Nine Positions In Single Game

A lot of value is placed in Major League Baseball on players who can perform capably at several defensive positions. If that’s the case, Nathan Orf should be in the bigs in no time. Orf is a 24-year-old prospect on the Brevard County Manatees, the Single-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. You’ll notice we didn’t mention what position he plays. That’s because on Sunday...

Brewers Injury Update: Matt Garza activated from DL

With MLB rosters expanding to as many as 40 men, there is now little need for teams to use the disabled list for the remainder of the season. Therefore, the Milwaukee Brewers have announced the activation of starting pitcher Matt Garza, who will pitch Wednesday against the team that traded him away last year, the Chicago Cubs. MLB.com's Adam McCalvy first announced on Friday...

Milwaukee Brewers looking pathetic

It was a bad day to be a fan of Wisconsin sports. The Wisconsin Badgers blew their opener vs. LSU, and the Milwaukee Brewers couldn’t hit Jake Peavy to save their lives. How convenient it is for both teams to have failed miserably on offense on the same night. The Brewers managed one hit off Jake Peavy in the eighth inning, and Ryan Braun delivered a consolation run in the ninth...

Mike Fiers Should Stay In The Brewers’ Rotation

With Matt Garza slated to return to the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation in the not too distant future, manager Ron Roenicke will have to decide whether to keep Mike Fiers or Jimmy Nelson as a starter for the stretch run in September. While decisions like these can leave a manager tossing and turning at night, the choice Roenicke must make upon Garza’s return is quite clear...

The Brewers Can’t Let Till Dillard Go (At Least Not Permanently)

As I write this on Wednesday evening, the Brewers’ AAA affiliate Nashville Sounds are playing their last game at Greer Stadium, which the team called home for 37 years.  They’ll start the 2015 season in a new stadium, which naturally was financed by the usual indefensible corporate welfare. Leaving that aside, via Tom Haudicourt’s Twitter feed comes an interesting column by...

Three Call-ups Who Could Help Brewers

Roster expansion on September 1 stands as one of the most unique events in all of sports. MLB allows teams to stretch their September rosters from 25 to 40 men, remaining the only major sports league to adjust the roster size in-season. These September call-ups figure to play a very different role for the Brewers than they did last year. 2013’s call-ups could gain experience while...

Feeling a Case of Wild Card Jitters Coming On

According to JSOnline’s Matt Montgomery, by beating the Pirates yesterday the Brewers increased their odds of making the playoffs to a cool 83.4%.  If the Brewers had lost and the Cardinals had won against the Phillies, Milwaukee would have dropped nine percentage points.  Meanwhile, the goddamn Cardinals are still slight favorites to win the division – 47.4% compared to the...

Milwaukee Brewers: Uh, what’s happening here?

The Milwaukee Brewers, in one week, have gone from handing the great Los Angeles Dodgers their first sweep of the season to looking like a doormat for the Pittsburgh Pirates. In the first two games of the series against the Pirates, who are now just four games back of Milwaukee, the Brewers have allowed 18 runs, committed four errors, gone 3-17 with runners in scoring position...

Milwaukee Brewers belong in the playoffs

The first two games of the series between the Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers have been playoff previews. The Brewers have won both in different ways, but the results, especially the one this evening, point to an obvious conclusion: the Milwaukee Brewers belong in the playoffs this year. Last night, Milwaukee ran into a Zack Greinke buzz saw. They managed only two hits...
