Found December 14, 2011 on The Outside Corner:
As someone who spent years dressing up as one of the most iconic food-based mascots in professional sports history, I have a special place in my heart for food-based logos. Yes, from 2004-2006 I was one of the Milwaukee Brewers' racing sausages. And while I treasure my time racing around the field in Milwaukee, the sausages are a mascot and not a logo. Which is why when Joe announced that we were doing a logo month here at TOC, there was really only one that I had any interest or desire in writing about. In a field of interesting minor league logos, there is one that stands out as the flakiest, the perfect compliment to a hearty breakfast or a satisfying dinner, the one logo where when you hear of its very existence makes you think of everything from late nights out with your buddies at Denny's to waking up at your childhood home and heading to the breakfast table, where mom would invariably have something waiting for you that was good for your tummy and even better for yo...

Ramirez has the power the Brewers needed

MILWAUKEE Aramis Ramirez is officially a Milwaukee Brewer. The team introduced the 33-year-old third baseman Wednesday during a press conference at Miller Park, and his powerful bat could go a long way to filling the void left by departing free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder. A career .284 hitter, Ramirez is also a two-time All-Star, has reached 100 RBI six times in his career...

Potential Trade Partners: Angels and Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers were perhaps a bit surprised last week when reliever Francisco Rodriguez accepted their arbitration offer, likely putting the team on the hook for something north of the $11.5 million Rodriguez made last season in the third year of a three-year contract he originally signed with the Mets. While Brewer GM Doug Melvin has stated that the K-Rod situation doesn’t...

What Do the Brewers Do Now?

Ryan Braun‘s performance-enhancing drug saga is ongoing, and nobody seems to know with any certainty how it will end. Unfortunately, the Milwaukee Brewers are part of that large group eagerly awaiting the outcome. The Brewers aren’t going to re-sign Prince Fielder and now stand to potentially lose their best player for almost a third of the season. But what do they do? The team...

Notebook: Rangers might grab Fielder with kick at the finish

They haven't even reached the starting gate, but don't count the Rangers out of the Prince Fielder Derby. In fact, oddsmaker Jon Heyman lists them as the morning-line favorite to add the free-agent slugger to their already potent lineup.

Handicapping the Prince Fielder derby

All (likely) soon-to-be former Milwaukee Brewers all-star slugger Prince Fielder wants for Christmas is a home. The 27-year-old free agent slugger is by far and away the best free agent left on the open market. He's coming off a season that saw him post this monster line in his walk year: .299 BA, 38 HR, 120 RBI, .566 slugging percentage .981 OPS and a WAR of 5.2. Those numbers...

Herpes Medicine Elevates Testosterone?

Milwaukee Brewers superstar Ryan Braun, the reigning NL MVP, recently tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The All-Star outfielder claims it’s all BS….and now RUMORS are swirling that Braun tested positive for herpes, and the totally-acceptable and legal medication given to him by his doctor caused the positive test. Dude, Braun… just don’t go there. Maybe you’re...

Braun posterboy for progress, not problem

Pretending that baseball players aren't cheating with steroids anymore might make it easy to cheer for home runs again, but it doesn't exactly help to fight the problem. Blind faith does not help to find the truth. When Ryan Braun, the future of good-guy, clean baseball players and current National League MVP, tested positive for banned substances this month, it was portrayed...

(source feed provided no summary content for this entry)

Details of Aramis Ramirez deal announced

When the Brewers signed Aramis Ramirez, it was easy to start wondering just how the Brewers were going to fit him into their 2012 payroll, especially with Francisco Rodriguez accepting salary arbitration just a few days ago. As it turns out, the answer is a drastically back-loaded contract. Ken Rosenthal had the details first this morning: 2012: $6 million 2013: $10 million...

How Many Years Will Prince Fielder Get?

One team tells Scott Miller of CBS Sports Prince Fielder is looking for a ten-year deal.  As Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports writes, isn't Fielder entitled to an Albert Pujols-like contract, as a 27-year-old coming off a monster season? The problem is the marketplace, however, writes Morosi.  The teams with the biggest payrolls don't appear to be fits for Fielder.  Over...

Prince would reign in Rangers' regal lineup

The question of where Prince Fielder will play for the next several years remains up in the air. Adding Prince Fielder to the Rangers' potent lineup would make it the best in baseball -- hands down.
