I don't know about you, but I take great pride in taking down the Cubbies, no matter if it's Spring Training, the regular season, or heck, even a company picnic between the two teams (o.k., that last part isn't likely to have ever happened, but you get the point).  The Brewers and more importantly George Kottaras came out swinging as Milwaukee took out the Chicago Cubs 10-2 on Wednesday afternoon.  The win pushed the Brewers Spring Training record to 5-6.  Below are the major points and highlights from the game:  - George Kottaras had not hit well so far this spring, but that changed in back to back innings as Kottaras hit a bases clearing double in the fourth (3RBI's) and then hit a two run double the very next inning.  Overall Kottaras was responsible for driving in half the Brewers runs today.- Randy Wolf made the start and came in to the game having pitched 4 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball.  That changed today though as he went 4 innings in his 3rd start of th...

Rodriguez, Axford wrap up victories for Brewers

Francisco Rodriguez and John Axford are a tough combination to beat, and the Milwaukee Brewers' starters love it.

Weeks brothers facing off in Arizona

PHOENIX It's a scene that plays out hundreds of times over the course of a 162-game Major League Baseball season: a runner takes a big lead off first base, dances a little bit and once the pitcher takes notice, tries to dart back to first ahead of the throw, only to be caught between two fielders. Such a scene played out in the first inning of the Milwaukee Brewers' March...

Its not all an act: Tony Plush can play

PHOENIX (AP) -- If the Milwaukee Brewers can get anywhere near the same type of starting pitching during the regular season that they are getting this spring, a second straight NL Central title would appear to be well within reach.

Roenicke keeping an eye on young pitchers

PHOENIX Usually during split-squad games, Ron Roenicke stays back at Maryvale Baseball Park. Tuesday, however, the Milwaukee Brewers' manager made the 25-minute trek across Phoenix to get a good look at players fighting for a roster spot as the Brewers took on Oakland at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. Roenicke wanted to focus his attention on a few of the team's young pitchers...

Wolf produces another solid start for Brewers

MESA, Ariz. Another day in Arizona, another strong performance by a member of the Milwaukee Brewers' rotation.

Go-To Baseball History Site does not Associate Ryan Braun as a MVP Winner

Prominent stats website, for like Wikipedia and sports broadcaster's references, Baseball-Reference.com refuses to identify Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun as the MVP winner that Bud Selig and the MLB awarded him last season. Instead the site chose to leave a blank space, something they don't even do for the years when Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Jason Giambi...

Fantasy Forecast: Milwaukee Brewers

Author: Andrew SwansonAs Brewers fans slowly thaw this spring from a cold and unforgiving winter, they will be pleasantly surprised to see a Milwaukee team that addressed a much needed weak spot this off-season: Starting Pitching. With the additions of Zack Greinke and Sean Marcum to a rotation already consisting Yovani Gallardo and Randy Wolf, the Brewers may now have enough pitching...

Brewers 6, Padres 4

If the Milwaukee Brewers can get anywhere near the same type of starting pitching during the regular season that they are getting this spring, a second straight NL Central title would appear to be well within reach. Left-hander Chris Narveson kept the momentum going on Thursday, pitching 3 2-3 scoreless innings in the Brewers' 6-4 victory over the San Diego Padres. In three...
