Found October 31, 2012 on Brewers Bar:
Not that this is breaking, shocking news, but the Gold Glove Awards are now officially stupid, dumb and just not worth anyone’s time.  As Todd Rosiak mentions in the JS, the Brewers failed once again to win a Gold Glove Award (or the Gold Glove Awards failed them, which is probably the better phrase).  Not one Gold Glove since 1982 (Robin Yount), holy cannoli, that is insane and just sucks outright.  Throw us a bone, Rawlings!!  Seriously.  I know the Gold Glove Awards are often thought to be awarded based on reputation or hitting ability, which is so ludicrous and contradictory that I won’t even get into it.  I know coaches and managers are often thought to base their choices on seeing a player or two during a few series each year, or to base their selections on simple things like errors, but what does a Brewer have to do to win one of these worthless awards? According to Kyle Lobner of Brew Crew Ball, 2013 bobblehead and former Brewer George Scott has more Gold Gloves than everyo...

Infield Depth a Concern for Crew

Photo: Cal Sport Media The Brewers’ infield is somewhat in flux going into the offseason, particularly at the shortstop position.  While the team will likely have much the same crew of regulars around the bases (first base: probably Corey Hart, second base: Rickie Weeks, third: Aramis Ramirez), shortstop is a position that will have some intrigue around it until the Brewers decide...

Brewers outright Morgan to minors

The Milwaukee Brewers have outrighted outfielder Nyjer Morgan to Triple-A Nashville. Morgan hit .304 while helping Milwaukee win the NL Central in 2011, but slumped to .239 this year and the Brewers failed to make the playoffs.

Report: Brewers to outright Jose Veras

Wanting to revamp a bullpen that struggled mightily last season, the Milwaukee Brewers appear to be in the process of taking the first step by parting ways with Jose Veras.MLB.com reported Wednesday that the Brewers will outright the 32-year old reliever off the 40-man roster, likely making him a free agent. If Veras would clear waivers, he would almost certainly elect free agency...

Brewers' Morgan turns down Triple-A option

Outfielder Nyjer Morgan, who was postseason hero for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2011, was sent outright by the club to Class AAA Nashville and will declare his free agency instead. Morgan, 32, fell into a deep slump this season and batted only .239 in 289 at-bats while ceding the No. 1 job in center field to OF Carlos Gomez.

Brewers begin bullpen overhaul

The Milwaukee Brewers' primary goal this winter will be rebuilding a bullpen that ranked last in the majors in three important categories: earned-run average (4.66), blown saves (29) and losses (33). There was some natural attrition with the free agency of setup man Francisco Rodriguez and long reliever Livan Hernandez. The Brewers had no intention of trying to resign either...

Brewers Free Agent Fornication Set To Begin

Despite what Tyler Maas said the other day, how awesome is it that the season is over? I AM SO HAPPY! No more dreaming of impossible scenarios that won't happen, no more Brewers bullpen doing Brewers bullpen thing, no more Cardinals, no more Barry Zito, no more MLB Betting, no more Prince Fielder used to be a Brewer and no more stupid teams in the stupid World Series. I'm...

Reliever Rodriguez charged with domestic abuse

In light of an alleged incident with his fiancé in September, free agent relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez on Wednesday was charged with one count of domestic abuse. Patch.com in Waukesha County reported the misdemeanor could cost Rodriguez as much as nine months in prison and a $10,000 fine. His first court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 12. Records say the alleged incident...

Every plan revolves around Shaun Marcum

Now is the time when people come up with their master plans for what will and won’t fix the team of their choosing. Of course, for me, that is the Twins, so I pay close attention to what everyone else has to say. I don’t have any free agent optimism, but everyone from Parker Hageman to Phil Mackey do. And they all believe that Shaun Marcum, formerly of the Blue Jays and Brewers...
