Being a Brewers fan this season is becoming an exercise in extreme patience to say the least. On days when the bats come alive it seems we can't get the pitching to help out. On days when the pitching has been awesome we can't hit to save our lives. So it got me to thinking about what gives, especially with our pitching staff.

The Milwaukee Brewers' tough week for injuries continues to get worse.

Gonzalez was called safe on the steal but jammed his foot into the base on a late slide. He immediately spun flat on...
There hasn't been much good news out of the Brewers camp since the team left for a nine-game, 10-day road trip at the end of April. The road trip resulted in four players injured in four consecutive days and twice as many losses as wins.
But amid the recent disappointment has been one very quiet, very impressive breakout success of the season's first month. He's been...
Ryan Braun is out of the Milwaukee Brewers lineup for Friday night's series opener with San Francisco, two days after the reigning NL MVP left the game at San Diego in the sixth inning with a sore right Achilles tendon.

The after effects of first baseman Mat Gamel's season-ending injury continued to sweep through the organization Friday, as reliever Zach Braddock was released to make room for Brooks Conrad, the team's latest call-up.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Brewers figured they should have scored more runs against a wild Tim Lincecum. Milwaukee wound up with just enough when it mattered -- and that marked quite an improvement from two shutout losses at San Diego.
