PLAYERS: John Axford
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
Milwaukee Brewers reliever John Axford had a insatiable craving for some Krispy Kreme donuts this past weekend and took to Twitter to help score some. Axford sent out the following tweet on Saturday afternoon asking if anyone at the Wisconsin state fair would be willing to trade donuts for Brewers tickets: Who is at the WI State Fair & would like to exchange a dozen Krispy Kreme Burgers for a dozen game tickets? (plus the cost of the burgers) — John Axford (@JohnAxford) August 3, 2013 A woman named Kathy was all for the exchange. The two hashed out the details via Twitter. @KathyDarrow will you now? How do you feel about an exchange? And where can we do this exchange? Getting a feel if this will work! — John Axford (@JohnAxford) August 3, 2013 @KathyDarrow Bacon. Always bacon. Especially chocolate covered bacon. — John Axford (@JohnAxford) August 3, 2013 Then, about three hours later, the good were exchanged. Hurray! Thank you so much @KathyDarrow for taking the time to get ...

Brewers activate Marco Estrada, option Gennett

The Milwaukee Brewers optioned second baseman Scooter Gennett to Triple-A Nashville following Tuesday's 3-1 victory over San Francisco, clearing the way for right-handerMarco Estrada to come off the disabled list. At the time Estrada went on the disabled list in June, he expected to be out for just the required 15 days. But the left hamstring strain and a back injury has delayed...

Aramis Ramirez may see time at DH during roadtrip

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke usually plays it safe when he has a player returning from an injury, easing the player back by not having him play the full nine innings or back-to-back games right away. But because the Brewers will have the disabled list at their disposal for five of the nine games on the road trip, Milwaukee's skipper may be able to play...

Milwaukee leaving far too many runners left stranded on third base

Unlike many baseball statistics, the success rate of driving runners in from third base with less than two outs is not easy to find. It just seems like the Milwaukee Brewers have squandered countless of those chances this season, and manager Ron Roenicke confirmed as much. He's seen the numbers, but would only say Milwaukee ranks near the bottom of the league in turning runners...

The Western Gull(s) - Waiting For Jim Henderson / Watch Out for Your Camera Lenses

Inspired by the art of my favorite illustrator and hero (to the extent that it's fair to call a person that…fair to that person, I mean) Craig Robinson / author of Flip Flop Fly Ball: An Infographic Baseball Adventure and his work with stadiums! Hoping the "Imitation is a Form of Flattery" thing applies to this... And, of course, they're going to attack...

Will the Brewers Lose 100? (Probably Not, But They Are on Track for Their Worst Season in a Decade)

(Image: AP) Like most dedicated Brewers fans, I have continued to follow the games out of a sense of loyalty, inertia, and because summer television programming leaves a lot to be desired.  The relative lack of emotional attachment is unfortunate on one hand…but on the bright side I’m sleeping better at night than I was after some of those meaningful late summer games of...

Brewers' Tom Gorzellany slowed by line drive off elbow

Tom Gorzelanny got hit by a line drive in the second inning on Friday making his Wednesday start be in doubt. RR says Wed. start "definitely a question mark" for Tom Gorzelanny.

Matronly white-haired usher breaks up scrum for bat in stands

A elderly, white-haired female usher used her best finger-waving skills to break up a little tussle in the stands as Giants fans tried to stake their claim to a wayward bat at AT&T Park last night.
