MILWAUKEE Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin has been elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
Melvin was born in raised in Chatham, Ontario, the same hometown of hall of fame pitcher Fergeson Jenkins. Growing up, Melvin idolized Jenkins, who won 284-226 games in his 19-year career.
"That's who inspired me to play baseball," Melvin said Tuesday on...
2012 Top 20 Prospects – Milwaukee Brewers
It’s prospect season again. I’ve had my rankings listed on team pages, but have been horrible about keeping those up to date. As I mentioned on the pages, I’m looking at other rankings when I make mine (along with scouting reports and my own opinion). This time we look at the Milwaukee Brewers.
For the top 20, I’ve listed them...

Milwaukee, meet Aramis Ramirez, or, as many will come to know him, not Prince Fielder. Ramirez is a nice player, a very good player even. He’s a .300 hitter (when healthy), still has enough pop to hit 30 homers (when healthy) and, if guys do their job and get on base in front of him, he can still drive in 100 runs (when healthy). There’s one problem with Ramirez, though. Sometimes...
It's about time to kick off one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Five years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Moving right along with our preview of the National League Central, here is a look at the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers.
We hope Ryan Braun
