Found August 07, 2012 on Miller Park Drunk:
Jean Segura made his not long awaited debut as a Milwaukee Brewer last night and the results were.. there. Which is okay. We don't need Jean Segura to come up and hit 50 homeruns this season because 2012 does not matter anymore. 2013 is where it's at and finding out if Jean Segura is our SSOTF (shortstop of the future) is what the Brewers should be spending the rest of the season doing. The Brewers have somehow gotten less production out of the shortstop position this season than they did last year with Yuniesky Betancourt. That doesn't even seem like something that should be possible, but it's true. Improving this position and finding our SSOTF is something that was important to Doug when trading Zack Greinke and hopefully Jean Segura is it. (If not? Yuni is always available.) Personally? I'm pumped. Scouts see Jean Segura as a second baseman long term, but Segura has other ideas saying "The scouting report always has got something to say. I'm just here...

Brewers newcomer Segura displays nerves

MILWAUKEE With the weight of the Milwaukee Brewers' expectations resting on the young shoulders of new shortstop Jean Segura in his debut on Monday night, Segura's debut performance wasn't quite something to write home about for those hoping he'd immediately signal a bright future for the Milwaukee organization. Segura struck out twice and went 0-for-4 in his debut...

Brewers top prospect Segura called up

After joining the Milwaukee Brewers as the main prospect in a trade that sent pitcher Zack Greinke to the Angels, shortstop Jean Segura will join the Brewers major league roster tonight against Cincinnati, according to a release from the team.

Segura will get two-month audition with Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers decided not to wait until September to take a look at shortstop prospect Jean Segura. They called him up Monday with the intention of playing him regularly the rest of the season. "I think it's a great opportunity to look at him," said manager Ron Roenicke.

Will Segura Be Forever in Brew Jeans?

The Brewers called up shortstop, Jean Segura. Woohoo! Now, on various teams, I have Domonic Brown, Mike Olt, Straily, Starling Marte, Brett Jackson, Josh Vitters and some serious Short Eyes. I’m basically the creepy guy hanging around the playground in my Astrovan, blasting “Hey Nineteen” wearing candy jewelry like I’m Mr. T. ”Psst! Jean Segura, what kind of speed...

Kartje: Brewers still have some bright spots

MILWAUKEE Out of bad sometimes comes good. That message came directly from Brewers general manager Doug Melvin soon after Milwaukee had traded Zack Greinke to the Angels at the trade deadline. And with his Brewers a significant distance out of the playoff race, the message was almost a plea to those disappointed by the Brewers' season thus far. Even if Milwaukee couldn'...

Prime 9: Chillest Brewer Bros

Whenever I'm bored and can't find anything to watch on TV I always switch over to the MLB Network to see what's going on. Most of the time it's just a rerun of the previous night's highlights that gets old in about five minutes, but sometimes they show their original program Prime 9. It's essentially a countdown show that features lots of old footage and talking...

Brewers' Fiers silences red-hot Cincinnati

MILWAUKEE This was supposed to be the beginning of the end. The moment where the Milwaukee Brewers revealed what was truly behind the curtain. The game where Mike Fiers revealed what he had been all along: a late-round draft pick that happened to catch the rest of baseball by surprise. As a pitcher so reliant on deception and not on pure stuff, those who doubted Fiers' performance...

Top Play: Corey Hart makes diving snag

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart used every inch of his 6’6″ frame to make a diving catch against the Reds on Monday night. Hart, a former eleventh round pick in the 2000 amateur draft, made an excellent diving catch on a bunt attempt off the bat of pitcher Bronson Arroyo. The Brewers went on to beat the Reds 6-3 behind a strong pitching performance by Yovani Gallardo...

Rickie Weeks’ Quiet Turnaround

After a tremendous +6.5 win season in 2010, the Milwaukee Brewers signed second baseman Rickie Weeks to a four-year, $38.5M contract extension in February 2011. He followed up his breakout campaign with a +3.7 win season in an injury-shortened 2011, in which he proved 2010 was not a fluke by hitting .269/.350/.468 with 20 home runs and a .358 wOBA. Expectations were sky-high coming...

Wolf, Brewers aim for sweep of first-place Reds

The hottest team in the majors for much of the past month, the Cincinnati Reds are suddenly on the verge of matching their longest losing streak of the season. Fortunately for them, they may have the right man on the mound Wednesday to stop the slide. Mat Latos looks to help the Reds avoid a fourth straight loss and a three-game sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers by winning...

Nationals acquire INF Izturis from Brewers

The Washington Nationals acquired infielder Cesar Izturis from the Milwaukee Brewers in a waiver wire trade Monday. Izturis, who has seen time at all four infield positions this season, was claimed by the Nationals who needed depth around the infield with shortstop Ian Desmond on the disabled list and Mark DeRosa (groin) day-to-day. Izturis is in the final year of his contract...

Reds nearly no-hit by Brewers starter Fiers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers rookie Mike Fiers took a perfect game into the seventh inning and Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run homer off Johnny Cueto to lead Milwaukee over the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Mike Fiers Continues to Rise

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher, Mike Fiers, put on a show again last night against the Cincinnati Reds. The 27 year old right hander is beginning to look more and more like a true ace as the season progresses. Fiers went eight innings and only gave up three hits and one run in a 3-1 win over the Reds. This masterful performance follows a shutout win over the Washington Nationals...
