From the SB Nation Brewers Blog: Brew Crew Ball
“where’s Randy Wolf when we need him? Yeah I know: ‘We glorify the past when the future dries up.’”
“ERA now DOWN to 19.64 He’s making progress!”
“The 60′s were a groovy time. I hope he reaches the prohibition era next inning.”
“His ERA should have been 19.66. That was the year “Wild Thing” was released.”
“Hooray for poor opposing defense”
“Reach on an error, out on a TOOTBLAN. Fate will be served, I guess.”
“Holy ****. this team is dumb as dirt.”
“I’m begging for this inning to end”
“It only took 7 ground balls to get out of it”
“This is going to be one of those games”
“I think the Cards and Mets switched uniforms”
“The lack of fundamentals is maddening. Can’t throw strikes, can’t field, can’t help but get thrown out on the bases.”
“Back from catching a toad that was taunting my dog.”
“I hope Aoki did that on his own. What a stupid, stupid play.”
“So true and it might not crack the top 3 worst plays of this game.”
“If TOOTBLANS were currency we would be the Yankees.”
“Hey, if you can trade international signing bonus cap dollars, you should be able to trade TOOTBLANS too. We can trade the bullpen and take their best prospects and unwanted TOOTBLANS in return.”
“DONT DO THAT”
“Someone needs to rub their noses in it. bad Brewers. Bad.”
“Are they tanking alreaady? For the top draft pick. Top 3 for sure?”
“Tanking isn’t just strategically useful. It’s also a damn good time.”
“Fire the whole coaching staff this team has turned into a joke.”
“Is Sophia getting worse by the day?”
“From my favorite Mets blogger, Jason Fry, on Twitter: ‘The Brewers play baseball like somebody’s spazzy nephew mashing buttons on the controller.’”
“‘Stupid controller, I pressed X!’ Suuuuuuuure you did, Johnny.”
“You know it’s bad when Mets fans feel ok piling on.”
“And they really are:
“The Brewers are making baseball look like amateur chainsaw juggling. And as a Met fan, I should know what that looks like.”
“Might be speaking too soon, but how do we get Marlins and Brewers to switch divisions? #FinallyTheMetsMaybeHaveAPatsie”
“Problem seems to be alignment of bases. If they were laid out in linear fashion, Milwaukee might have a contender.”
“The #Brewers led the NL Central in 2011, believe it or not”
“Zack’s pitch count a little high. As must be Brewers’ baserunning coach.”
“Holy mother of God are the Brewers stupid”
“I want anyone freaking out about Wheeler to watch this Hellweg start again and realize it could be worse’”
(Personal side note, those last two quotes used by this commenter are from me (@DailyStache) on Twitter. I’m very proud)
“Hellweg’s pitched in seven innings in the majors. He’s given up at least two runs in five of them.”
“not sure how anyone can question whether this team has given up. their focus is completely gone, Roenicke has lost this team”
“Worst game of the year candidate”
“there are many candidates”
“We could trade this game to May for one of May’s 6 wins”
“Really surprised the booing’s been as tame as it has been since I turned it on. Tough to get upset when you’re not surprised anymore, I guess.’
“If this is the best effort we can muster then I am turning off the game.”
“Can’t really blame you. My wife’s going to ask for the remote in a minute, and I’m not going to argue.”
“Switching up the mood… What is brown and rhymes with snoop?”
“Juan will swing at anything.”
“except a 2 strike pitch right down the middle I guess”
“that’s a typical Brewer inning”
“It doesn’t matter if we are losing the game. Fundamentals are fundamentals and we simply don’t execute them. It’s not even a matter of luck anymore, it’s just bad baseball. The kind of stuff you work on in spring training.”
“I hate this team”

MILWAUKEE -- As Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun continues to progress in his return from an inflamed nerve in his right hand, his return date is getting easier to project.
Barring any setbacks in batting practice sessions Monday and Tuesday, Braun is likely to come off the disabled list for the four-game series in Arizona beginning Thursday.
While Braun may be ready to...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun swung in the cage Friday for the first time since landing on the disabled list with an inflamed nerve in his right hand.
Braun will take batting practice on the field prior to Saturday's game against New York, will hit again in the cage Sunday and then will hit on the field again Monday.
While the Brewers are still a few...
MILWAUKEE -- A tough season rolled on for the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, as another loss came as a result of sloppy play.
Scripted like so many of the 51 losses before it, the Brewers wasted a stellar performance in one aspect of the game due to failures in the other two.
Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny gave Milwaukee six stellar innings in a spot-start, but a pair of throwing errors...

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta threw a bullpen session Friday, as the club still hasn't decided whether he'll make his scheduled start Sunday against the Mets due to a left hamstring strain.
"It was outstanding," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of Peralta's bullpen session. "I know you can't simulate 100 percent like you...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta will have his scheduled start bumped back from Sunday to Tuesday to give his strained left hamstring a few more days to heal.
Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny will make a spot start Sunday against the New York Mets, with Peralta taking the ball Tuesday against Cincinnati.
"Just making sure this thing doesn't come up again...
Aramis Ramirez was always at risk of causing further damage to his right knee while he stayed in the Milwaukee Brewers lineup. Now it seems as though that has finally happened as Ramirez departed last night's game after the fifth inning, following a diving play. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com tweeted the news during the game:
Aramis Ramirez, limping in the dugout after making diving...
Milwaukee Brewers' left fielder Ryan Braun continues to progress in his recovery from a right hand injury that has sidelined him for almost a month. He took 50 swings in the batting cage on Friday and will take batting practice today.
As reported by Kevin Massoth of MLB.com,

MILWAUKEE -- There wasn't one person to blame for the sloppiness of the Milwaukee Brewers' 12-5 loss to the New York Mets on Friday night at Miller Park.
The defense was poor, mistakes were made on the bases, outs were made at the plate, and the pitching left a lot to be desired.
It would be unfair to point the finger to rookie right-hander Johnny Hellweg for Friday'...
MILWAUKEE -- One year after having just one representative at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game for the first time since 2005, the Milwaukee Brewers are sending a pair to this summer's Midsummer Classic.
Shortstop Jean Segura and center fielder Carlos Gomez were named as reserves for the National League, as the 68 All-Stars were announced Saturday evening on FOX Sports...
The Milwaukee Brewers are planning on having a healthy tandem of Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez after the All-Star break to solidify the middle of their batting order.
As reported by Adam McCalvy at MLB.com,
"Manager Ron Roenicke views getting those two players healthy -- Braun's
right hand and Ramirez's left knee -- is key to the Brewers climbing out
After getting shelled in his previous start, Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo decided to do a little damage himself on Saturday night.
Gallardo singled, doubled, scored two runs and executed a successful sacrifice bunt off former teammate Shaun Marcum in a key spot to help Milwaukee hold off the New York Mets 7-6.
''I just try to put the ball in the play,'' Gallardo...
As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets. The truth is, I try to stay away from the “rumor” machine because I feel like I’ve learned my lesson with getting enthralled in things that never actually happen.
The Mets are in an interesting position because so much of what they do moving forward depends...
The Milwaukee Brewers hung on to beat the New York Mets 7-6 tonight at Miller Park.
What a difference a night can make. The Mets were able to contain the Brewer offense last night when they mustered a 12 run outburst, tonight they seemed unable to keep pace with the Brewers offense even though Yovani Gallardo’s fastball was straight and generally sat at around 89 – 90 touching...
