In the top of the sixth inning during last night's Rockies-Brewers game, Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez made an amazing leaping catch at the center field wall to rob Colorado left fielder Carlos Gonzalez of a home run. It was an awesome catch that kept the Brewers' deficit at two runs for the timebeing, but ended up not meaning much in the grand scheme of things as the Rockies went on to win the game 7-3. But when I saw this catch, I was reminded of a familiar catch a decade earlier, on a bit of a grander stage. The 2002 All-Star Game at Miller Park has gone down in history for its result: an unfufilling 7-7 tie, resulting in no MVP named in the very year that the late Ted Williams had the All-Star Game MVP award named after him. Of course, the lasting image from this game wasn't Torii Hunter scaling the wall to rob Barry Bonds of a homer (at the height of his powers) in the first inning, but instead fans mercilessly booing MLB commissioner Bud Seli...

Brewers Wednesday: Maldonado gets first start

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is in a tricky but enviable spot when it comes to his catching situation. He must find a way to keep valuable backup Martin Maldonado in a groove, but starter Jonathan Lucroy is an integral part of Milwaukee's lineup. Though it's tough to figure out a plan that works for all parties, most managers would love to have just one of the...

Bounces go against Brewers in loss to Rockies

MILWAUKEE -- Baseball can be bizarre. It can also be cruel. Tuesday night the seventh inning was both to the Milwaukee Brewers and left-hander Michael Gonzalez. Making his debut with the Brewers, Gonzalez got hit with the loss by allowing three runs without recording an out in Milwaukee's 8-4 loss to Colorado. In a box score it looks like a rough outing, but all he had was rough...

Axford not concerned with recent velocity dip

MILWAUKEE -- Searching for any clue as to why his velocity has dipped in his first two outings of the season, Brewers closer John Axford went to the video tape. He pulled up side-by-side video from this season and successful outings from 2012 and 2011. "Nothing looks different," Axford said. "It's the same. The arm slot is the same going back to 2011, same leg...

Brewers' Ramirez sprains knee, leaves game

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez left Friday's game against Arizona with a left knee sprain. Ramirez was injured in the bottom of the fourth inning when he awkwardly slid into second base trying to stretch a single into a double. Off the bat it appeared to be an easy double, but the ball caromed off the wall and rolled right to Diamondbacks left fielder...

Segura showing off big time potential at SS

MILWAUKEE When Jean Segura took his place at shortstop on Monday, he became Milwaukee's fifth different Opening Day shortstop in five years. The Brewers shipped two young shortstops away in trades and had two stopgap starters the past two years while they searched for a long term solution. When the Los Angeles Angels showed interest in Zack Greinke at least season's trade...

Ryan Braun – Is he a keeper?

Well, I guess that’s too late to figure out now. I traded him for Steven Strasburg. Sure, Braun was named the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player. However,Strasburg was named the Nationals’ Opening Day starter. Sure, he may (or may not) have a pitch count but Ryan Braun was … connected to the Biogenesis scandal. I did not want to hedge my bets. You are talking to the...

Season Preview: Colorado Rockies
