Found October 30, 2012 on Brewers Bar:
Photo: Cal Sport Media The Brewers’ infield is somewhat in flux going into the offseason, particularly at the shortstop position.  While the team will likely have much the same crew of regulars around the bases (first base: probably Corey Hart, second base: Rickie Weeks, third: Aramis Ramirez), shortstop is a position that will have some intrigue around it until the Brewers decide how they want to approach the conundrum of candidates.  Alex Gonzalez could be back, and frankly it would be great to see him get a chance to play extensively with the Brewers without being forced off the field with an injury.  It seemed like he was happy to be with Milwaukee and it was an unfortunate turn of fate that he had to miss so much time.  If he is open to a relatively reasonable salary, the Brewers might elect to sign him.  Of course, that question brings into focus the pending decision on whether Jean Segura is ready for the majority of starts at shortstop in the big leagues.  If the club is be...

Free agent preview: Milwaukee Brewers

For four months, the Brewers were one of 2012's bigger disappointments. They fell of the pace in the National League early in the season, they traded Zack Greinke, and they hit their season low of 12 games under .500 on August 19th. Then, like a light switch, the finished the season playing like their hair was on fire. From August 20th onwards, the Brewers went 29-13. That tied...

Every plan revolves around Shaun Marcum

Now is the time when people come up with their master plans for what will and won’t fix the team of their choosing. Of course, for me, that is the Twins, so I pay close attention to what everyone else has to say. I don’t have any free agent optimism, but everyone from Parker Hageman to Phil Mackey do. And they all believe that Shaun Marcum, formerly of the Blue Jays and Brewers...

A Frightful Reality: Gold Glove Awards Officially Bunk

Not that this is breaking, shocking news, but the Gold Glove Awards are now officially stupid, dumb and just not worth anyone’s time.  As Todd Rosiak mentions in the JS, the Brewers failed once again to win a Gold Glove Award (or the Gold Glove Awards failed them, which is probably the better phrase).  Not one Gold Glove since 1982 (Robin Yount), holy cannoli, that is insane...

Guess Brew? Don’t Mind If We Brew… Er, Do!!!

Unlikely.Getting through baseball's long, unforgiving offseason is a difficult task. While each season draws to its conclusion, the days also get shorter and the temperatures dip.
