Two homers, two pies for Aoki, translator

MILWAUKEE -- There are plenty of similarities between baseball in Japan and in the major leagues, but Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Norichika Aoki found out Thursday that there is at least one significant difference.

What Does Zack Greinke Have For Breakfast At Home?

Brewers ace Zack Greinke has some pretty interesting home/road splits since joining Milwaukee in 2011. He's literally unbeatable at his home Miller Park running his record to 15-0 after Wednesday's beatdown of the Cubs. Greinke pitched seven shutout innings allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out 12. He is a monster at home. You think pitcher wins are a silly...

2012 Fantasy Baseball, Week 10: Is It Time To Give Up On Rickie Weeks?

Rickie Weeks is slowly becoming this years Adam Dunn, painful at bat by painful at bat.First, let's get it out of the way that I personally have always felt Rickie Weeks was severely overvalued by the majority of fantasy owners.  Maybe fantasy owners remember back in the '06, '07 and '08 years when he actually used to run and that's where the perceived value...

Tweet 'em and meet 'em: Axford surprises fan

Hart, Brewers look to stay sharp vs. Padres

Andrew Cashner missed his opportunity to become a full-time member of a major league rotation due to injury last season. It appears the San Diego Padres feel he's finally ready to take on that role. Cashner's first task as a starter will be to help cool down the Milwaukee Brewers, who seek their fourth straight victory Saturday at Miller Park. Injuries and inconsistent...

Daily Friar 6.9.12

So I was wrong about the Padres "winning formula" I mentioned yesterday. They were supposed to win last night, but failed to do so. Of course it doesn't help when you are facing a power hitting team in a hitter friendly ball park. Ironically enough though, it wasn't Ryan Braun doing all the damage this time.
