PLAYERS: John Axford
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
Brewers closer John Axford had another successful Oscar night, correctly predicting 11 of the 15 winners at Sunday night's Academy Awards after going 11-for-13 last year. Perhaps some day, the Brewers' resident film buff will hold a statuette of his own.

Braun should have quit while ahead

Turns out, The Collector has a name. And a reputation. And a story. The PR battle Ryan Braun lamented is raging anew. For this, he has himself to blame. I don't know if Braun knowingly used the synthetic testosterone that showed up in his October urine test. But he is guilty of a blatant refusal to quit while he was ahead. In the news conference that followed his successful...

Kottaras works to improve his defensive game

Barring injury or an unlikely meltdown, Jonathan Lucroy will be the starting catcher when the Milwaukee Brewers open the 2012 season on April 6. But by all accounts, George Kottaras will be on the roster once again as the team's No. 2 catcher. The 28-year-old returns for a third season with the Brewers. Last year, he hit .252 in 49 games with five home runs and 17 RBI. Kottaras...

Maybe New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez respects Ryan Braun herpes

Let me be clear by stating that Alex Rodriguez has never said anything about Ryan Braun’s failed drug test having to do with him taking medicine for herpes. Of course A-rod wouldn’t because he knows better, as Derek Jeter would have failed way before Braun… right? Kidding again. But now to the point, as this Braun saga is getting annoying but I wanted to weigh in my opinion...

Collector in Ryan Braun Steroid Case Denies Wrongdoing, Says He Followed Protocol

During Ryan Braun's news conference last Friday, the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder made a number of insinuations about the integrity of the MLB's sample collecting process and the specific collector who took his positive test sample. On Tuesday, a man revealing himself to be the collector of Braun's test, Dino Laurenzi Jr., sent an email to ESPN The Magazine to state his...

Braddock hopes to bounce back in 2012

By all accounts, 2011 was a lost season for Zach Braddock. After posting a 1-2 record with a 2.94 ERA in 2010, the 24-year-old made the opening day roster for the first time in his brief major league career last spring and figured to be a key part of the Brewers' bullpen. In early May, though, Braddock went to the 15-day disabled list with a sleep disorder. At the time, some...

Jungmann, Bradley making first impressions

By John Pesetski Special to FOXSportsWisconsin.com PHOENIX -- They're big. They're strong. They're smart. And, with more than 5 million in signing bonuses between them they are also two of the highest-paid prospects Brewers history. This spring, the Brewers are getting their first extended look at 2011 first-round draft picks Taylor Jungmann and Jed Bradley. Jungmann...

Ryan Braun’s suspension has been overturned, but the trial has just begun

While Ryan Braun’s suspension over a positive drug test has ended with it being overturned, I think everybody recognizes that his trial has only just begun. While the suspension being lifted was a boost to the Milwaukee Brewers, it probably would have actually been better for Braun’s reputation had he gotten suspended but for reasons

Lining Up The Brewers

Let the Countdown to games being as we now stand 5 days shy of the 1st game of Spring Training against the San Francisco Giants.  I've avoided talking much about what the Brewers lineup and fielding will look like because we knew so little about what would happen to Braunie.  Well now we know and it's as good a time as any to try and construct what a potential Brewers lineup...

Collector of Braun's sample refutes allegations

Five days after Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun won his appeal of a 50-game suspension by blaming a faulty collection process, the collector of Braun's sample responded with a three-page statement.
