The play by Anibal Sanchez is amazing, but I prefer imagining the sequence of emotions from Martin Maldonado

Greinke pushes on despite trade rumors

MILWAUKEE Zack Greinke can feel the wind in his hair and the sweat on his back as he rounds the left field corner of Miller Park. He darts around the warning track and toward home plate, staring straight ahead. With his earbuds in, he can shut out the rest of the noise noise that constantly surrounds him, even if it is quieter in Milwaukee than in most baseball cities. For a few...

Oof: Talking Brewers with Al’s Ramblings

Sometimes we just like to talk about baseball. No jokes, no fashion judgement, just plain old baseball talk. For that we call upon Al Bethke of Al's Ramblings. He talks a lot about politics (and Meghan McCain's looks) on his blog, but when he talks baseball there are few who can match his intelligence and rationality. VINCE: The talk of the fanbase right now has moved past...

Zack Grienke trade rumors: Cardinals, Braves and Rangers

Milwaukee Brewers ace Zack Greinke is set to be a free agent at the end of the season and it likely to be dealt before the July 31st MLB trade deadline. The 28 year old Greinke currently sports a record of 9-2 with a 3.08 ERA with 106 strikeouts in 108 innings pitched. Despite those stellar numbers Greinke was not selected for the All-Star team. ”There’s so many good starters...

Marlins 7, Brewers 6(10)

Hanley Ramirez hit an RBI single off reliever Manny Parra in the 10th inning, and the Miami Marlins went on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 Wednesday. Ramirez's big hit came after the Marlins rallied from a one-run deficit in the ninth, when Gaby Sanchez hit a solo home run off Brewers closer John Axford to tie the game at 6. After the Brewers left a pair of runners on base...

Brewers remain unsure if they are buyers or sellers

With trade rumors already swirling involving right-hander Zack Greinke, Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and general manager Doug Melvin met with him briefly Sunday to discuss the situation. "He's already heard his name come up," Roenicke said, "so Doug had mentioned that his name is out there. And those rumors aren't spread by us. We're not even...

Source: Marlins acquire Carlos Lee

The Marlins, seeking to upgrade their production at first base, acquired Carlos Lee from the Astros on Wednesday, according to a major-league source. The Astros will receive two minor leaguers, third baseman Matt Dominguez and pitcher Rob Rasmussen, a source said. As part of the deal, the Astros will cover all of the approximately $9 million remaining on Lee's contract except...

Greinke on ASG: 'It's kind of like the BCS'

MILWAUKEE He might not file a grievance any time soon we'll leave that to Cincinnati Reds' pitcher Johnny Cueto but Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke did make a fitting comparison when talking about his snub from next week's All-Star game in Kansas City. "It's kind of like the BCS," said Greinke, when asked about the controversy of All-Star voting, "...

Braun: 'It's a tremendous honor'

MILWAUKEE For Brewers star left fielder Ryan Braun, his fifth All-Star game invite -- a selection that was decided by player vote on Sunday -- put him in a special class of Milwaukee Brewers. That's because only two other Brewers' greats, Robin Yount and Cecil Cooper, can claim a similar honor in a Milwaukee uniform. This year, however, Braun wasn't elected as a starter...

Ramirez walk-off lifts Brewers

Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run homer off Heath Bell in the bottom of the 10th inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 13-12 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. Livan Hernandez (2-1) pitched the 10th and picked up the win. He struck out John Buck, got Scott Cousins to fly out to center, but Jose Reyes connected on a 3-1 pitch and homered into the second tier above the Marlins...

Brewers 6, Marlins 5

Pinch-hitter Norichika Aoki drove in the go-ahead run with a safety squeeze in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 6-5 on Monday night. Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally with a leadoff double. He moved up on Martin Maldonado's single to right and scored when Aoki greeted Randy Choate with a bunt single that gave Milwaukee a 6-5 lead. Steve...

Dugout Digest - bullpen meltdown

I remember two offseasons ago, the Miami (then Florida) Marlins going on a crusade to improve their bullpen. They brought in guys like Ryan Webb, Edward Mujica, and Mike Dunn in trades, and were attempting to heavily retool things. And last year, it worked. The Marlins pen had a 3.44 ERA, a top ten mark in the league, and a half run improvement over 2010. But this season...

Greinke Wasn’t Snubbed

Yup, I said!  Zack Greinke did not deserve to be an All-Star in the 2012!  I know, his numbers (entering Sunday) may say otherwise as he was 9-2 with a 2.82 ERA.  Most years, those digits put you in line with a Cy-Young award…this year is different. Zack Greinke (MIL) – 9-3/2.82 ERA/1.167 WHIP/102 innings/102 SO/22 BB Tony La Russa (yes, even typing that name bothers me...

Double-Error, Game-Winning Plays

The Brewers and Diamondbacks played an afternoon game on Sunday at Miller Park. The scored was tied 1-to-1 heading to the bottom of the ninth. Milwaukee’s Aramis Ramirez walked to lead off the inning. He was replaced by pinch runner Carlos Gomez. Corey Hart flew out, bringing Rickie Weeks to the plate. Arizona’s Patrick Corbin never threw a one pitch to Weeks. Gomez scored the...
