Miller Park Drunk:
Lost in the elation of yesterday's win was a single moment in the game that really pissed me and other like minded Brewers fans off. With the Brewers up five runs in the eighth inning and K-Rod due to bat at the top of the inning the Brewers called upon a pinch hitter. The hitter chosen by Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was Casey McGehee. Casey McGehee took about two pitches before hitting a foul pop-up that the catcher caught for the out. As Casey McGehee headed back to the dugout he was treated to a chorus of boos from the crowd at Miller Park. #areyouseriousbro
I am not here to defend the season of Casey McGehee. A .626 OPS is not good. In fact, it is very bad. He underperformed badly and now he has (seemingly) been replaced in the lineup by Jerry Hairston. If you are one of the people who believes that Casey McGehee is responsible for all of the Brewers losses this season then this is exactly what you wanted to happen. Adding to that, a pinch hit at bat when the Brewers are up...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Saturday and Sunday saw the Milwaukee Brewers looking like World Series contenders. Ryan Braun was 6-for-8 in two games, while Prince Fielder was 3-for-8. Yovani Gallardo pitched a gem on Saturday, and a strong offense bailed out a pedestrian outing from co-ace Zack Greinke on Sunday. With that kind of talent playing at that high a level, Milwaukee's visit to Phoenix and Chase...
Jonathan Lucroy earned a new nickname on Sunday night, when his latest heroic act of small proportions played a huge role in Milwaukee's 9-4 triumph over the D-backs in Game 2 of the NLDS.
Prince Fielder said on the eve of the Milwaukee Brewers' National League Division Series opener with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Miller Park that perhaps the biggest mistake he made going into his first postseason appearance in 2008 was being too amped up.
His goal heading into Saturday? "Try to be real cool," he said Friday. "As cool as possible." Fielder...
MILWAUKEE Thirteen pitches, and the Diamondbacks were done.
That's all it took for the Milwaukee Brewers to string together six good at-bats and score five times in the sixth inning, breaking a 4-4 tie created just an inning earlier by Justin Uptons long home run.
When they were done, the Brewers had a 9-4 victory on Sunday at Miller Park and the D-backs found themselves on...

Staring pitcher Shaun Marcum struggled as Milwaukee missed out on a chance to sweep Arizona.
PHOENIX -- In Games 1 and 2 of the NL Division Series between the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks, intentional walks -- whether real or proposed -- factored prominently into both Milwaukee wins.
The trend continued as the series shifted to Arizona for Game 3 Tuesday, but roles were reversed as an intentional pass swung things in the Diamondbacks' favor and they avoided...
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy drove in the go-ahead run with a squeeze and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they could bunt
as well as bash, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-4 Sunday to take a 2-0 lead in their NL division series.
After his solid performance in the field and at bat in the NLDS series opener, Jerry Hairston Jr. made his second straight start at third base for the Brewers in Game 2.
Neither Milwaukee's Zack Greinke nor St. Louis' Chris Carpenter were experienced taking the mound on three days' rest, but both did so Sunday in the interest of improving their teams' National League Division Series prospects.
Suddenly, the Milwaukee Brewers are America's Team. Or at least America's Goofball Team.
With their raucous, frat house team spirit, their growing collection of identifiable personalities and their small-market franchise roots, the Brewers have emerged as the anti-Yankees and anti-Phillies of this baseball postseason.
