Found May 08, 2012 on Miller Park Drunk:
There is a good chance the Milwaukee Brewers 2012 season is cursed. I mean, what other possible explanation is there for all of the injuries they have suffered lately? Was Miller Park built on an Indian burial ground and the lost souls are having their revenge? Did Ron Roenicke date a witch? Or maybe the Brewers left a crappy tip for their waitress at Buffalo Wild Wings and now the guy from the commercial (who has a crush on said waitress) is getting his revenge on the team? I've searched high and low for an answer to what is happening to this team right now, but I'm not having much luck finding an answer that makes sense. To make matters worse they haven't been winning, going 3-7 over their last ten games. The losses haven't been pretty either. Shut out by Jeff Suppan. The Dillard game aka the first true "Fire Ron Roenicke" game of the season. Yesterday's homerun derby. Don't even get me started on the road trips to Atlanta and St. Louis. It's ...

Front Row Amy Something Something

This represents me touching on the Front Row Amy phenomenon. I guess? Wednesdays game wasn't your usual Milwaukee Brewers contest. No, no... they still lost. And, obviously, Travis Ishikawa managed to replicate the results of a slumping Ichiro Jones. The most sizable difference (well, two most sizable differences) between this Brewers/Reds rubber match and most other Miller Park...

Brewers extend contracts of Melvin, Roenicke

MILWAUKEE After an unprecedented year of success for the Brewers in 2011, with Milwaukee winning the NL Central and coming just short of a World Series appearance, the organization announced Tuesday that it has extended the contracts of current general manager Doug Melvin and manager Ron Roenicke. Melvin's extension also includes a promotion, officially naming him the Brewers...

Melvin can maintain as well as rebuild

MILWAUKEE When Brewers general manager Doug Melvin took over in late September 2002, after another disappointing season in Milwaukee, the city had meager expectations for its baseball team. A decade straight of losing seasons will do that. So when Melvin set out to rebuild the Brewers, he started with a seemingly simple goal in winning back the city of Milwaukee. "When...

Winning is best cure for Brewers' injury blues

MILWAUKEE A few hours before Monday's game against Cincinnati, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke took his usual, pre-game stroll through the team's clubhouse. This time though, he was surveying a team that had changed quite drastically since its last game at Miller Park. Only pitchers Chris Narveson and Brandon Kintzler were injured the last time Milwaukee had laced up in its...

Brewers SS Gonzalez out for year with knee injury

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke says shortstop Alex Gonzalez will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season. Gonzalez was injured Saturday, sliding into second base during the Brewers' 5-2 loss at San Francisco. Signed to a one-year deal before the season with the hopes of shoring up the Brewers' defense...

Greinke puts Miller Park streak on the line

The Milwaukee Brewers are unbeaten when Zack Greinke takes the mound at Miller Park. Ryan Braun's potential absence combined with Johnny Cueto getting the ball for the Cincinnati Reds may put that streak in serious jeopardy. Greinke might not have the NL MVP behind him as he goes for another home victory in the conclusion of this three-game set with the Reds on Wednesday afternoon...

Braun: 'We have to find a way to win games'

MILWAUKEE Despite the team's well-noted struggles at the plate this season, Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said before Wednesday's game against the Reds that if the team's pitching staff had been throwing the past month like it had last season, then the team could've easily overcome its woeful hitting in the season's first month. There's reason to...

Brewers Lose Gonzalez to Injured Knee

The Milwaukee Brewers have not met their lofty expectations thus far in 2012, and a recent spat of injuries could make that an even more arduous task. Left-hander Chris Narveson was lost to season-ending shoulder surgery a couple of weeks back. First baseman Mat Gamel tore his ACL and is likely to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Center fielder Carlos Gomez just hit...

What Will Gonzalez's Injury Cost The Brewers?

Photo: Jeff Chiu/APThe Brewers learned yesterday that Alex Gonzalez has a torn ACL, meaning they have lost three regulars (totaling somewhere around five wins) for the rest of the season. In a year that has been almost nothing but bad news, this may be the worst break yet. The Brewers have already lost Chris Narveson and Mat Gamel, but they will likely be able to recoup most of their...

Brewers finalize extensions for Melvin and Roenicke

The Milwaukee Brewers announced that they have finalized contract extension for manager Ron Roenicke and General Manager Doug Melvin. Aaron Gleeman of NBCSports adds that Melvin's deal “runs through 2015,” and Roenicke’s deal “runs through 2014″ with team option for 2015. In 2011, his first year as a manager, Roenicke led the team to their first NL Central title with...

Reds begin series with injury-plagued Brewers

Like the Cincinnati Reds in 2011, the Milwaukee Brewers are having some difficulty in the early stages of their NL Central title defense. The injury-plagued Brewers will try to get headed in the right direction during their first matchup with the Reds this season, a three-game series that opens Monday night at Miller Park.
