Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse is coming off of a bad month. The Brewers are, too. It really couldn’t be going much worse. Neither side expected this, of course. Following the 2012 season, Lohse openly sought a big-money contract due to his performance with the St. Louis Cardinals over the previous two seasons.

Ryan Braun: Suspension would cast a dark shadow on Milwaukee Brewers

Over the past decade, it has been admirable the way that the Milwaukee Brewers achieved a balance between turning prospects into stars and adding veterans along the way to become competitive in the National League.

Scooter-Mania FINALLY Reaches Milwaukee

For being a player who's never played a game in Milwaukee, Brewers fans sure seem to love Ryan Joseph "Scooter" Gennett. The fan base's blind affection so generously heaped upon the childlike frame of the scant second baseman is probably on account of two main reasons. First, and most important, Gennett hit .297, stole eight bases and tallied 60 hits through 50...
