BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Lucroy's big night leads Brewers past Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy had four of the Brewers' season high-tying 16 hits and drove in two runs, leading Milwaukee to a 7-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night in a matchup of the two worst teams in baseball. Ryan Braun had three hits with a double and an RBI, and Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez each had a pair of RBIs for the Brewers, who have won five...

Teammates Hook Carlos Gomez Up With a Chin Strap on His Batting Helmet to Keep it From Falling Off

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez has a problem. The man can't seem to keep his helmet on when he's batting. I suppose you could just chalk it up to one crazy powerful swing and when he misses the momentum jerks his body around so quick his helmet falls off.You could also say come on man! Time to wear a helmet that fits!via Cut4Read more »

Rehab frustrating Brewers' Peralta

Wily Peralta expected to be well on his way to returning to the Brewers rotation by now, but his rehab isn't going as fast as he'd like. "It's going slow, yeah," Peralta told Brewers.com. "This type of injury is not easy. Some days you feel good, some days you feel sore, stiff, whatever. It's hard to get 100 percent. There has not really [been a setback]. It's just going slow...

Why the Milwaukee Brewers should move Ryan Braun back to third base

I know! Ryan Braun’s defense at third base was below average. That’s why he was moved to the outfield in the first place, and even at his age, Aramis Ramirez is by far a better defensive third baseman than Ryan Braun ever could be. However, at the end of this season, Rami is gone and third base will be vacated. The first option for the Milwaukee Brewers is to trade Carlos Gomez...

Late home runs boost Brewers' morale

MILWAUKEE -- There's little question Miller Park is a hitter-friendly yard conducive to home runs flying over the fence. For years, Milwaukee took advantage of its home park. But such has not been the case of late, as the Brewers have been hurt by the home run at home much more so than they've been aided. The Brewers temporarily bucked that trend Sunday. Ryan Braun and Adam Lind...

Best of both worlds: Milwaukee Brewers take series from Minnesota Twins

Seven innings pitchers’ duel, two inning slugfest. When the dust settled Sunday between the Minnesota Twins and the Milwaukee Brewers, long forgotten was the stellar duel between Tommy Milone and Mike Fiers. Baseball’s chess match gave way to a white-knuckle demolition derby as the Brewers took game and the series from the Twins 5-3. For seven frames, the starting pitchers went...

The struggle is real: performance issues and the 2015 Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers are not a very good baseball team. Lest I overstate obvious points, the Brewers are the second-worst team in Major League Baseball at 28-48. They are not effectively pitching or hitting, and rarely have a combination of both that would spell success. Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweeted after today’s 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins: ...

Milwaukee Brewers trade rumors: Jean Segura edition

This could be the most intriguing trade possibility for the Milwaukee Brewers this July. If you take a look at the team’s top prospects, you can see the names of many talented shortstops, one of whom could very possibly be the starter this upcoming season. If the current starter, Jean Segura, does go, Luis Sardinas is the best man for the job at this point, who was already in The...

Binge and purge: Minnesota Twins bash their way past Milwaukee Brewers

One night, the bats are going for the Milwaukee Brewers. Hours later, the bats aren’t going at all. With fewer hits and fewer runs to show for it, the Brewers fell to the Minnesota Twins 5-2 Saturday afternoon. The Twins’ bats went for quality over quantity at Miller Park: though they tied the Brewers with seven total hits, three went over the fence and accounted for all of the...

Milwaukee Brewers trade rumors: Francisco Rodriguez edition

Milwaukee Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez is having a solid year on a losing team, and his good numbers could attract a beneficial trade for the Brewers. However, Ken Rosenthal has reported that Rodriguez has not attracted much interest as of yet. The reason for the lack of interest apparently lies in Rodriguez’s backloaded contract. While K-Rod is only due $3.5 million this...

Brewers' Rodriguez knows a trade is possible

Francisco Rodriguez doesn't want to be traded, but he's also realistic. "I'd be disappointed if I get traded," Rodriguez told Brewers.com, "because I signed two years plus [a club option for 2017] just to be here. If I didn't believe this ballclub would be better and compete in the future, I would have gone someplace else. … "But definitely, it [the possibility of a trade]...

Brewers: Sorting out the mess in Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers have never won a World Series. They’ve made the postseason just twice in my lifetime and since 1989 have only experienced seven winning seasons—going from 1993–2006 without one. Their most recent successful seasons—2008 and 2011—were made possible by “trading the farm” in order to win. Their post-2011 fall is chronicled here. They almost got...

Brewers and Mets talk trade; focus on Aramis Ramirez

A month ago I wrote about the Mets and how their offense, or more appropriately their lack of offense, was a threat to their playoff hopes. Since then things have only gotten worse for New York. They’re just now getting Travis d’Arnaud back. David Wright is still out and there’s no timetable for his return. And to make matters worse they’ve now lost Daniel Murphy to a...

Ground ball rate might predict Ryan Braun’s thumb woes

Back in April, I explored the question of how worried Brewers fans should be about Ryan Braun. He’s infamous now for his PED suspension but the larger concern was how his thumb would respond to a cryotherapy procedure he underwent in the offseason. It just so happened he got off to a terrible start and so a lot of people simply assumed it was the thumb. My assertion at the time...
