BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brewers Sign Neftali Feliz, Remain Interesting

The Brewers appear to have unearthed a gem in Keon Broxton, whose admirers are growing in number, the bandwagon led by FanGraphs’ own Jeff Sullivan. If the projections are right, the Brewers found more sneaky value in their 2017 first baseman, Eric Thames, who spent the last few years launching home runs in South Korea. And on Thursday, the Brewers reached a one-year, $5.35 million...

Youth Movement on Hold

To Brewers fans’ disappointment, the oft-controversial and seemingly replacement-level veteran right-handed starting pitcher Matt Garza will likely open the 2017 season in the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation at the expense of sexier, younger options in Josh Hader, Jorge Lopez, and Brandon Woodruff. The idea isn’t that Garza is likely to be a big piece on the next winning...

Fun With Platoons!

The Brewers roster has quite an issue as currently constructed: it is full of a number of fringey bench-[maybe starting positional OFP] players with extreme platoon issues.

How Keon Broxton Looks Like the Brewers’ Best Player

I’ve encouraged you to believe in Keon Broxton before. In baseball-game terms, that wasn’t even very long ago. So you could accuse me here of being unoriginal, but I’ve prepared a counterargument. For one thing, it’s January, shut up. For a second thing, I bet a lot of you missed my previous summary. And for a third thing, now there’s some new information. This is a Keon...

The Brewers need to trade Ryan Braun this off-season

We’re reaching the point of the off-season where teams are starting to move on to Plan B. Given what’s left on the free agent market, it sure seems like a good time to have a trade chip. Teams who preferred to look to free agency to add talent (it makes sense on the surface; why would you want to give up assets in the form of prospects to acquire talent when you could do so with...

Selling While You’re Ahead

In just over a year at the helm as the Milwaukee Brewers’ general manager, David Stearns has shown an incredible ability to find value in places where no one thought to look. By buying low on Jonathan Villar, re-signing Hernan Perez, and betting against Keon Broxton’s strikeout problem, Stearns has accumulated assets without giving up any real assets in return. Perhaps the best...

2017 Minor League Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

Johnny come latelys like the Yankees and White Sox may think they're hip for acquiring prospects. But the Brewers have been doing it since before it was cool. Starting with the trade of Carlos Gomez, the Brewers have brought in a bounty of talented youngsters. In fact 8 of the 16 prospects discussed were acquired via trade. Including 4 of their top 5. So good work Doug Melvin and...

The Brewers’ Potential Breakout Slugger

Right after the end of the playoffs, we lost August Fagerstrom to a major-league front office. I miss having August around, because he was a good friend and an excellent writer. If there was one complication, though, it was that, shockingly often, we wanted to write about the same things. The same sorts of stuff inspired us, and in this line of work, there’s nothing more precious...
