I know the umpire was just trying to get into position, but in the GIF, it certainly looks like he’s purposely trying to check Brooks Conrad into oblivion. If the goal for the defense on a fly ball was to let the ball hit you directly in the face, Michael Saunders wins

MILWAUKEE Cody Ransom doesn't remember much from the experience, but the shortstop's career with the Milwaukee Brewers actually started much, much earlier than that of any active player on Milwaukee's roster.
As a grade school kid growing up in Chandler, Ariz., Ransom lived only a few miles from the Brewers' spring training facility. And since Ransom's family...
MILWAUKEE With a cast covering the majority of his throwing hand, catcher Jonathan Lucroy told reporters on Friday that the surgery he underwent on his broken right hand on Friday was a successful one.
And despite the fact that he'll likely miss around six weeks of action with the injury, the Brewers catcher made it clear he won't be taking any time off while recovering...
Brooks Conrad ended his 0-for-27 slump to start the season, hitting a homer and driving in three runs to lead the injury-depleted Milwaukee Brewers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1 Saturday night.
Shawn Marcum (4-3) pitched seven strong innings for Milwaukee, giving up five hits while striking out eight without a walk.
Pirates starter Erik Bedard (3-6) lasted just 3 2-3 innings...
The 2012 Seattle Mariners starting lineup for Friday's series opener at the Chicago White Sox features one BIG change.
Ichiro Suzuki is back in leadoff spot.
The Mariners got this one right in my opinion. He's lost a ton off his batting avg. He's familiar with the lead-off spot. I hope this works.
What is accomplished is that Seager, Ackley...
Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun has been playing since the early days of the season with a tight right Achilles tendon, which flares up on occasion. One of those occasions was Thursday night, when Braun was withheld from the lineup for the series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers, a game Milwaukee won 6-2. Manager Ron Roenicke said Braun began feeling tightness in...
The Seattle Mariners spent the first one-third of the season looking to see if Ichiro Suzuki was a good fit as
the No. 3 hitter and the last few weeks giving Dustin Ackley a shot at being the leadoff man. On Friday, all of that changed. Manager Eric Wedge has installed Ichiro back as the leadoff man, the position he had for the first 11
years of his big-league career. Ackley...
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan hit a solo home run in the first inning of Friday night's game against Pittsburgh, snapping his major league record of 138 straight plate appearances without an RBI to start the season.
The previous record was 125, by outfielder Herb Adams of the Chicago White Sox in 1950.
Morgan hit a pitch from Pirates starter Kevin Correia over the...
Because of the Milwaukee Brewers' mounting injury list, manager Ron Roenicke has had to be creative with his lineups. That creativity was tested in a big way Sunday. With left fielder Ryan Braun nursing a sore Achilles tendon and hip, and third baseman Aramis Ramirez out due to a quadriceps strain, Roenicke was missing his Nos. 3 and 4 hitters from an already thin lineup. ...
MILWAUKEE (AP) Ryan Braun is back in the lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers, but lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon is still an issue.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke says Braun's status changes daily, "so it's hard knowing where we are with it."
Roenicke says the problem won't keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time but can limit...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Gomez each hit a two-run homer, Zack Greinke pitched effectively for six innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Thursday night to complete a four-game sweep.

By SANTOSH VENKATARAMAN,
STATS Senior WriterMaybe the Pittsburgh Pirates' fortunes at Miller Park are taking a turn for the better. They are in position for a rare series victory in Milwaukee, with Ryan Braun's status in doubt. The Pirates can capture a road set against the Brewers for the second time in the last six seasons Saturday night, and it's not clear if Braun...
What a huge series win. I know it’s hard to call any series win huge this early but that one was. The Reds were a hot team, with a hot offense and the Pirates shut them down 2 out of 3. They have to keep it going though, on the road. The Brewers are [...]
