Milwaukee Brewers fans who wanted to bring their own potty to games this season will have to leave it at home.In the past, fans have been known to bring their own portable bathrooms with them for convenience sake. But because of the team's contract with a sanitation company, that practice will no longer be allowed.It seems Waste Management, which has the sanitation contract with the Brewers, has the stranglehold on the outdoor potty market at Miller Park.Normally, there are in excess of 100 portable bathrooms in the parking lots around Miller Park. There are also bathroom facilities at the Klement's Sausage Haus and at Helfaer Field. If you have to go, there's somewhere to go.But when large crowds show up for Brewers baseball, and that has been the norm more often than not in past seasons, long lines near the portable bathrooms are sure to follow.The wait time has motivated some fans to bring their own, or hire a vendor to bring theirs in. Potty, that is.Unfortunately, that violates an agreement the Brewers have with Waste Management.The team made the announcement ahead of its Opening Day game against the Colorado Rockies on Monday. The home opener is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year at Miller Park.So, for any fans who want the convenience of having their own bathroom to use, let it be known that the Brewers have strictly prohibited the practice from now on."If you want your own, you can't work through a different vendor," said Brewers spokesman Tyler Barnes.I believe some fans will receive this news and label it as crap. Am I right?Via Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson will open the season as the team's long reliever and not in the starting rotation.
Narveson is recovering from shoulder surgery and a torn rotator cuff that cut his 2012 season to just one start.
"We want to back off him a little bit," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. " ... He's OK but he's really...
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson is fully on board with the team's decision to move him to the bullpen instead of beginning the season in the team's starting rotation.
Narveson was limited to just one start last season because of a torn rotator cuff, and he doesn't want to overdo things early in the season.
"I'm not reading too much into it,...
MILWAUKEE It's that time of year again. Every team has some kind of hope on Opening Day, as the pundits try to decipher which fan bases are delusional in thinking their team is a contender.
Can the Milwaukee Brewers make another run at the postseason? They'll only go as far as their pitchers take them.
The Brewers finished just five games back of the final Wild Card spot...
MILWAUKEE -- There's something special about Opening Day.
In Milwaukee it means warmer temperatures are on the way, though the high temperature outside of Miller Park is just 35 degrees Monday.
The bunting was hung around the park, and fans lined up to get into the parking lot before 9 a.m. - over four hours before Yovani Gallardo will throw the first pitch of the 2013 season...
When you gotta go, you gotta go. So it makes sense to BYOP -- Bring Your Own Potty.
Try telling that to the Brewers.
Experienced tailgaters at Miller Park in Milwaukee have been known to bring their own portable commode with them to the parking lot. As of this season, though, the Brewers will no longer allow that practice.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Waste Management...
Kyle Lohse will make his first start for the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Lohse waited until there was only a week left of spring training before signing a deal with the Brewers. The official deal for Lohse was for three-years and $33 million.
Last season Lohse pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals where he had a career best season finishing 16-3 with...
If you listen to the various pundits out there, the St. Louis Cardinals are predicted by many to finish no better than second to the Cincinnati Reds. Even the Post-Dispatch's Jeff Gordon is calling this a "transition" year for the Cards, as they deal with season-ending injuries to Rafael Furcal and Chris Carpenter, while also breaking in youngsters like Shelby Miller...
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer in the first inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 Saturday in the final spring training game for both teams.
White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod came on in relief and threw 5 1-3 scoreless innings before tiring in the eighth. Axelrod, scheduled to start Friday against Seattle, was pulled after RBI doubles...

Adam Wainwright has not been generous to the Brewers over the years. Among current players with a fair number of at bats against Wainwright, only Aramis Ramirez (.404) and Corey Hart (.265) hit him respectably. Although I could not find Wainwright’s career numbers versus the Brewers overall (apparently I need to be a STATS LLC client for that) I was...
