MILWAUKEE Taylor Green knows he doesn't have the natural tools that some star baseball players have. Drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 25th round of the 2005 MLB Draft, Green didn't start in pro baseball as a highly touted prospect, either. But since he started in the Brewers organization in 2006, they've seen something else in Green that higher draft picks or five-tool players don't always show in the early years of their baseball career. "There's a lot of good Triple-A hitters that, when they come up here, the thinking part, they can't figure it out," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said on Tuesday. "Whenever we look at somebody, I always ask, What's upstairs? Does he have good instincts? Can he figure things out when things are going wrong?'

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' Axford sees save streak halted

MILWAUKEE In a season that has been anything but consistent for major league baseball's closers, Brewers closer John Axford had been a perfect picture of consistency.

After Ian Stewart reached first base on a close throwing...

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...

John Axford Leaves Interesting Note For Post-Game Media

Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford, who had his streak of 49 consecutive saves snapped Friday night, left a pretty cool note for the media, foregoing post-game interviews. His wife was having contractions, so naturally he jetted to the hospital instead of hanging around to answer questions:

Audio: Front Row Amy & Front Row Ashley Tell 1250 AM In Milwaukee They Might Join Forces

All we heard for like 18 hours from Milwaukee Brewers fan was that our Front Row Ashley marketing campaign was “lame” and a “complete failure” wouldn’t be on TV in Wisconsin. Blah, blah, blah. And then we went out and put Ashley in the infamous seat usually occupied by Front Row Amy. The fans in attendance loved it. The beer vendors loved Ashley and Milwaukee’s 1250...

Brewers' batters are searching for answers

MILWAUKEE Johnny Narron didn't have to do much talking on the other end of the phone Wednesday morning; after all, the caller Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton had plenty to talk about. The night before, Hamilton had completed one of the best single-game efforts in baseball history, tallying four home runs, eight RBI, and an American League-record 18 total bases. And it was...

Brewers 8, Cubs 7(13)

Castillo (0-1) plunked Rickie Weeks on the left hand and Ryan Braun in the back before Aramis Ramirez hit...

Series Preview: Brewers vs. Cubs

I can't believe we're saying this, but this weekend's three game series with the Cubs is a battle to avoid the cellar in the NL Central as the Brewers and Cubs share equal 13-18 records and are 7 games back of the St. Louis Cardinals in the Central division race.  So let's take a look at this series and how I see it shaking down.Pitching Matchups: Friday: Brewers...

Cubs-Brewers Preview

Dale Sveum watched from the home dugout as the Milwaukee Brewers won eight straight games over the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park last season. Now managing Chicago, Sveum hopes to see that streak end as a visitor.
