Found July 11, 2014 on Larry Brown Sports:
PLAYERS: Ryan Braun
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
How was MLB able to get Ryan Braun to agree to a 65-game suspension in 2013 despite the absence of a failed drug test? There was so much evidence against Braun that the Brewers slugger decided to accept his fate. And where did MLB get all the evidence? Not only did they have Anthony Bosch […]

Brewers Thursday: Braun returns to lineup

MILWAUKEE -- Ryan Braun returned to the lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday but in a very unfamiliar spot in the batting order. For the first time since Sept. 14, 2008, Braun found himself in the No. 5 spot of the lineup and will continue to hit there for the foreseeable future. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is hoping to find a consistent top four in his lineup and he knows...

5 New Questions About the 2014 Brewers

Before the season started, I had 10 Questions About the 2014 Brewers.  It’s interesting in hindsight to see what I was concerned about at the time.  In many cases, the players I was unsure of have exceeded expectations – including Khris Davis, Aramis Ramirez, and Matt Garza.  Now that more than half of the 2014 season is ancient history, I thought it might be worth raising...

Death in Brewers family cast pall over loss

MILWAUKEE -- On the field, the Milwaukee Brewers suffered their 10th loss in 11 games, surrendering a 6-0 lead in a 7-6 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park. St. Louis slowly chipped away at the deficit with a pair of two-run home runs and a solo home run, eventually taking the lead for good and cutting Milwaukee's division lead to just one game on a Matt Holliday home...

Brewers swept by Phillies in miserable finale

MILWAUKEE -- Matt Garza was on his way to letting the Milwaukee Brewers forget about their offensive woes for a day when things completely fell apart in the eighth inning. By the time the last-place Philadelphia Phillies had completed a four-game sweep of the Brewers with a 9-1 victory Thursday, it was hard to even remember Garza taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning. Jimmy...

Justin Morneau Sure Would Look Great in a Brewers Uniform

In hindsight, it looks like the Milwaukee Brewers should have signed former Twin and Pirate Justin Morneau this past December.  Morneau signed with the Colorado Rockies on a very reasonable deal which guaranteed him about $13 million for two years with a mutual option for $9 million for 2016.  Morneau has been worth 1.9 bWAR in 2014, putting him about 1.5 bWAR above the cumulative...

Brewers head into All-Star break with big series vs. Cardinals

MILWAUKEE -- When a team has lost nine of its last 10 games, it is hard to build any series up to be much bigger than the last. It wouldn't matter if it were the worst team in baseball coming to Miller Park this weekend -- the Milwaukee Brewers need some sort of positive momentum heading into the All-Star break. That said, it's hard to not build this weekend's series...

Brewers hitting woes resume against Hernandez, Phillies

MILWAUKEE -- In the matter of a week and a half, the Milwaukee Brewers have went from feeling great about their first half of the season to trying to make it to the All-Star break without their current skid from getting out of hand. Unable to solve Phillies right-hander Roberto Hernandez, the Brewers managed just three hits Wednesday night and fell 4-1 to Philadelphia at Miller Park...

Cardinals sting Brewers, 7-6

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Matt Holliday hit a solo homer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez, completing the St. Louis Cardinals' comeback from a six-run deficit for a 7-6 win Friday night over Milwaukee. Milwaukee has lost six straight and 10 of 11 games. Holliday sent the first-pitch changeup from Rodriguez (3-3) into the left-field seats...

Kyle Lohse’s pine tar laden bat was stuck to his hands

During Wednesday night’s Phillies-Brewers game, Kyle Lohse laid down a sac bunt in the fifth inning. He kept the bat in his hands for nearly his entire trek up the first base line, and when he got back into the dugout, we learned why – there was too much pine tar on the bat, and it was stuck to Lohse’s hands. Somewhere, George Brett is nodding approvingly.

The Phils sweep the Brewers thanks to a seven-run eighth inning, as they defeat the Brew Crew, 9-1.

A seven-run eighth leads to the Phils’ sweeping the Brewers, as they defeat Milwaukee, 9-1.

Dugout Digest – the rising red tide

Just one short week ago, the Milwaukee Brewers were cruising along with the largest division lead in baseball. The Cardinals, Reds, and Pirates were 6.5, 7, and 7 games behind the Brewers in the standings, and it looked like Milwaukee would be able to feast on a weak schedule and go into the All-Star Break with a hefty lead. Of course, that didn’t go according to plan. The Brewers...
