I've been struggling to think of things to write about the Brewers lately. At one point I wanted to write a post about how Jim Henderson is the GREATEST CLOSER IN BREWERS HISTORY, but I obviously missed that bandwagon. Who would've thought that Honey Boo Boo's 15 minutes of fame would last longer than Jim Henderson's 15 minutes of being a good reliever? (Don't answer that. Sports betting sites wouldn't even take that action.) I'll probably write something about how awesome Aramis Ramirez has been or how the offense has been exactly what we dreamed it would be, but I can write those things anytime. Watching the Brewers lose in walk off fashion night after night just sucks the motivation to write Brewers things out of me so I'm just not going to do it. Let's talk about something else. Let's talk about these three things instead.
What is the point of baseball?
I've been thinking a lot about this Stephen Strasburg/Nationals situation lately ...

DENVER Two hours before the Milwaukee Brewers are set to take on the Colorado Rockies in their last game at Coors Field this season, the reliever who was never supposed to be here smiles wide, holding a hand of playing cards close to his chest.
Jim Henderson never could have imagined this card game three weeks ago, when he was still just a 10-year veteran of the minor leagues,...
Two days removed from the birth of his first child, Mark Rogers wasactivated from the paternity listto start Wednesdays game against the Rockies.
To make room for him on the active roster, the Brewers sent shortstop Jeff Bianchi to Triple-A Nashville.
Occupying the fifth spot in the rotation while Shaun Marcum recovers from elbow tightness that has sidelined him for two months...
DENVER Mired in one of the worst stretches at the plate of his career, Milwaukee Brewers star outfielder Ryan Braun will get the day offWednesday, as his Brewers try to salvage at least one win out of their trip to Colorado.
The day off has nothing to do with any lingering injuries, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. But with little options left to spark Braun at the plate, Roenicke...
The Milwaukee Brewers kept their home winning streak going with some late heroics from Corey Hart. Yovani Gallardo will try to help ensure no late heroics are necessary to extend that run to eight.
Gallardo will also be seeking his fourth consecutive victory Friday night with another successful outing against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Brewers' run of success at Miller...
Milwaukee's Mark Rogers welcomed his first child to the world Monday.
He's hoping he doesn't have to wait much longer for his first major league win.
Rogers takes the ball Wednesday for the sputtering Brewers in a matchup with a Colorado Rockies team seeking its first home sweep in 2 12 months.
After dropping Monday's opener 9-6, Milwaukee (52-63) fell to 1-13...
Mark Rogers of the Milwaukee Brewers is not a very lucky fellow. And that is unfortunate because he is from this great state of Maine and Maine is not exactly brimming with baseball success stories. And so it was pretty darned exciting when a kid who went to Mount Ararat High School in Topsham, Maine was the fifth overall selection in the first round of the 2004 draft. He had big...
How long had it been since Ryan Braun took early batting practice? "It's been a long time," Braun told reporters Thursday after doing exactly that with a group of Milwaukee Brewers teammates before the series opener against Philadelphia at Miller Park. "I think it's the second time ever in my career." Braun figured it was time to try something different...
MILWAUKEE Take a close look at the playoff races formulating this season, and you're likely to notice an interesting trend that has very much dictated the landscape of baseball in 2012.
First, the National League: Washington, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Francisco, St. Louis and Pittsburgh comprise the seven teams in the NL that are likely to be in the playoff hunt...
Ryan Braun hit his NL-leading 32nd home run, Yovani Gallardo won his fourth straight start, and the Milwaukee Brewers extended their home winning streak to nine with a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.
Braun, Gallardo and Nyjer Morgan each drove in two runs for the Brewers.
After Braun struck out with the bases loaded in Milwaukee's four-run fourth...

MILWAUKEE At 3:30 in the afternoon when the Milwaukee Brewers have an evening game, Ryan Braun usually starts his pregame routine of stretching and working out before taking the a roundof batting practice later in the evening.But at that same time Thursday, Braun broke his routine and took early batting practice for only the second time...
In case you guys haven't figured this out by now I am down with internet memes. I like to stay current on them, I think they are funny and I like to figure out a way to integrate them into the Brewers. This is what led to the creation of LOLBREWERS, the official MPD tumblr. From Sad Keanu all the way to McKayla is not impressed I love them all. (Except for that overly attached...
Corey Hart's grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning prevented Philadelphia's Cliff Lee from getting a rare win as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Phillies 7-4 on Thursday night.
Livan Hernandez (4-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory. Jim Henderson recorded the final two outs for his third save in four chances, getting Erik Kratz to ground out with the bases...
The Brewers joined in with the Cards a few weeks ago to roll back their uniforms as well. I’m a big fan of the No Name On Back here:
Photo: Tony Farlow/MiLB.com I’m going to be blunt here: The Brewers’ bullpen has had a really terrible season. So many things have gone wrong, both for each individual pitcher and the unit as a whole, that you feel like you’re witnessing something historic each time the staff surrenders a hard-earned lead – all 23 times, if you want to go by blown saves. The sheer combined...
