Hey, you! Stop saying the Brewers will lose 100+ games

Less than a week away! That’s all that separates us from the return of spring. If you follow us on Twitter/Facebook, you probably have been seeing our countdown on a daily basis (taking different Brewers numbers through the years and applying them to how many days sit between now and April 3). Baseball is on the horizon and we couldn’t be any more excited. With that being said...

Walk, Whiff, Smash, Swipe!

In September of 2015, the Milwaukee Brewers hired David Stearns to give direction to what had recently been a rudderless franchise. The move was well received by industry analysts and casual fans alike. Stearns was a rising star in the Houston Astros front office, and that franchise had just emerged from years of futility in dramatic, youthful fashion. Who better than to helm a rebuilding...

2017 Division Preview: 4th Place Milwaukee Brewers

  The other rebuilding club in the NL Central is quite a bit further along than the Reds.  Make no mistake, the Brewers will not be contenders this season.  But they’re going to be a tough opponent as they continue to build their suddenly deep farm system and call up some of the fruits of their labor over the last year and a half.  After trading Jonathan Lucroy, among others...

The Brewers Striking National Irrelevance

My first years as a real diehard Milwaukee Brewers fan came in the early 2000s, shortly after my family moved out from the boonies to the relative metropolis that was Trempealeau (population 1,315). Cable television was just one benefit of moving to civilization, and it was exciting to have a team like the Brewers on my television every day for the first time. I couldn’t get enough...

Examining the Brewers Outfield Defense

In recent years, we have become more appreciative of the value of defense. There has been an influx of defensive statistics that have been able (to some extent) to quantify the value of a player and a team in the field. Even for those who scoff at advanced defensive statistics, most could judge by the eye-test that the Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals have had elite defenses the...

Ryan Braun is clearly not a fan of how long Spring Training is

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun provided some very honest thoughts Thursday regarding the length of Spring Training. The 33-year-old outfielder told MLB.Com’s Adam McCalvy that his favorite Spring Training at-bat is “a first-pitch, line drive double play,” and added that “We don’t get paid by the hour.” Well, that’s some refreshing honesty, at least. Of course...

Garza using spring training to work on off-speed pitches

PHOENIX -- Matt Garza stuck with the game plan Thursday, which meant the Brewers right-hander fed the Arizona Diamondbacks a steady diet of offspeed pitches. It was a practice in patience for the fiery starter. Garza allowed four runs on five hits, including a homer, over 3 1/3 innings in Milwaukee's 8-5 win. Not his most flattering line. "It's frustrating because I want the results...

The Next Step for Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana

Last year, only one team improved their exit velocity in the second half as much as the Brewers did, when they went from 17th in the league to fifth. That might not surprise you, because you’ve read often about the young power duo on that team — Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana — and those two were at their healthiest and most dynamic in the second half. And yet the team was...
