Losers, baseball fans, Wisconsin residents, I ask the above question; Is it fire sale time for the Milwaukee Brewers?
Due to a number of factors, the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers season looks to be all but over. Well, not over in the fact that we can still go enjoy the beautiful Miller Park, enjoy the food, and, most importantly, peruse the parking lot for hotties…..but it looks to be over for playoff and World Series dreams.
A number of factors have contributed to my fear it is fire sale time and that The Brewers may cruise to a 90+ loss season.
-The Brewers miss Prince Fielder more than ever. Sure, Prince only has 5 hrs and is hitting .278, but there is no doubt the Crew is missing his emotional presence and his protection in the line up.
-Injuries; This team is riddled by injuries. Alex Gonzales, Matt Gamel Toe (this one really hurts, we had a sweet t-shirt all ready to roll out), Narv Dog and Spaz Gomez are all hurt. None of these guys are all stars, but they are A TON better than ...

I'm always checking out twitter during the games. This isn't because all my friends are either old or lame married or gay, and it's certainly not because I live in a basement and if I make too much noise I'll wake my mom up and she'll be mad. No, I do this because I like to keep my finger on the pulse of what Brewers fans are thinking. I've always sort of...
After seven straight quality starts for the Brewers starting rotation, Randy Wolf's outing on Wednesday felt like a step back for a group that seemed to be getting it back together.
The group had posted a 1.37 ERA in that time, holding opponents to an impressively low .160 batting average. But in Houston on Wednesday night, Wolf gave up six earned runs, walked three Astros batters...
After winning the National League Central title last season and establishing themselves as contenders in the National League for the foreseeable future, the Brewers' start to the 2012 season looked, to many, like a colossal disappointment.
A 16-20 start through May 16 certainly wasn't ideal. And losing three important pieces to the puzzle in the first month or so of the...
With all the hubub over my article suggesting a fire sale by the Brewers, I thought I would post a funny statistic.
**A.D.D. Side note. Look, Losers, Brewer Fans, Wisconsinites……..I am a very reactionary fan. I live in the moment….be it the Brewers, The Packers, The Badgers or which ever Wisconsin team is competing. I bleed Green and Gold, Blue and Gold, Red and White…...
Daniel Murphy is red hot at the plate, especially at Citi Field.
The New York Mets are reaping the benefits.
The second baseman goes for the longest hitting streak of his career as the Mets try to win for the eighth time in 10 tries by sweeping this two-game set against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
Murphy is hitting .333 with a team-leading 10 doubles and 14 RBIs on...
So it appears that one of our fellow Yardbarker blogs is a tad upset with me and my Fire Sale article. Miller Park Drunk, a Milwaukee Brewers blog has posted this article in response. I often don’t get into arguments with Drunks, but, since were Losers, I guess we can offer a retort.
We also joined the Yardbarker network to get some more exposure, gain readers and to see what...
The Mets will have to hold off impending storms if they hope to get the chance to sweep the Brewers in their brief two-game set. First pitch is still scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game can be seen on SNY or heard, as always, on WFAN 660AM. Join the conversation on Twitter by following @dailystache or yours truly, @DevOnSports.
The rains came late in Monday’s 3-1 win over...
The Brew Crew comes to town for a short stay, and tonight will play the 1st of only 2 games against the Mets at CitiField during this brief stay. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm and the game can be seen on SNY and heard on WFAN660AM. Be sure to follow @MetsWFAN, @dailystache and @Meriwyn as well.
The Brewers have had their share of struggles this year both with the departure...
Photo: Jae C. Hong/APIt appears that the Ryan Braun saga isn’t over just yet. The Associated Press reported today that Major League Baseball has fired Shyam Das, the arbitrator who overturned Braun’s 50-game suspension in February. Yesterday, Das revoked a 100-game suspension for Padres catcher Eliezer Alfonso over the same chain-of-custody issue that affected Braun’s sample...
