The long and painful offseason for the Milwaukee Brewers finally came to a close this afternoon as they started their 2013 campaign by taking on the Colorado Rockies. Despite the fact that the temperature was near freezing in the streets of Milwaukee, the 45,781 fans in attendance witnessed a solid 10 innings of baseball that was capped off by a walk-off sac fly from Jonathan Lucroy to give Milwaukee the 5-4 victory.
Yovani Gallardo stepped on the mound for his 4th-consecutive opening day start and struggled from the opening batter. The Rockies do feature a very deep and tough lineup but it still was painful to watch Gallardo allow multiple Colorado batters to get on base during each inning. Gallardo finished the afternoon allowing only three runs on 10 hits during the five innings he was on the mound. While it’s a bit concerning to see Yovani struggle, he’s always been a slow starter so I would...

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...
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...
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...
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...
The Milwaukee Brewers lack elite talent in their farm system. However, after emptying the system out via promotions and trades over the past few years, they did a pretty decent job filling it back...

During a wild and exciting (at times) day of baseball, the first walk-off win of the season came in Milwaukee. Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy drove in Rickie Weeks with a sac fly with one out in the tenth inning of a 4-4 game to give Milwaukee the 5-4 victory.
The Brewers trailed 3-1 going into the bottom of the eighth before a three run rally, capped by a two-run dbuble by...
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...

The Milwaukee Brewers seem to bring out the best in Colorado's Troy Tulowitzki.
Off to a strong start after missing most of 2012 with a groin injury, Tulowitzki looks to help the Rockies to a series victory over the Brewers on Wednesday night at Miller Park.
Tulowitzki played 47 games in 2012 and missed the last four months of the season with an injury that required surgery...
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...
Jonathan Lucroy hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 5-4 victory over Colorado on Monday, ruining the first game for new Rockies manager Walt Weiss.
Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally when he stole second after he was hit by a pitch with one out. Adam Ottavino (0-1) then issued an intentional walk to Ryan Braun and lost Aramis Ramirez to another...
