Brewers Wednesday: Weeks drops in batting order

MILWAUKEE -- With 31 games and 114 at-bats under his belt, Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is still trying to get going. And while the Brewers are going to continue to stay patient with the former All-Star, manager Ron Roenicke dropped Weeks from fifth to seventh in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Texas. "It wasn't really a conversation," Roenicke...

Lohse sporting historically low run support numbers

MILWAUKEE One of the extreme oddities in baseball happens every once in a while when a team just can't score when a certain pitcher takes the mound. It's completely unexplainable if that team has an above average offense. The Milwaukee Brewers do, and they simply can't score for Kyle Lohse. In the seven games Lohse has started this season, the Brewers have scored 14...

Brewers' Gallardo feels 'out of whack' on the mound of late

Yet again, Yovani Gallardo didn't look like himself, and now it's getting concerning. The usually reliable Gallardo put together another frustrating outing Friday night against Cincinnati, throwing 100 pitches while lasting just four innings, walking five and allowing three runs in Milwaukee's 4-3 loss to the Reds. "Command obviously sucked," Gallardo said...

Brewers acknowledge need to execute better

MILWAUKEE -- The mood of a clubhouse as bags are packed for a road trip can usually can be a pretty telling sign of how the previous homestand went as a whole. The Milwaukee Brewers have had three homestands thus far, all to one extreme or the other. As bags were packed in preparation of Thursday's trip to Cincinnati, Milwaukee's mood was one of frustration after a 4-1 mistake...

Reds, Brewers to meet for first time in 2013

A More Mature Carlos Gomez

January 30, 2008 — I remember it like it was yesterday.  The Mets sent Philip Humber, Deolis Geurra, Kevin Mulvey, and Carlos Gomez packing to Minnesota. “Yes!” I thought to myself, “that’s all it takes to acquire Johan Santana, arguably the best pitcher in the game…what a steal.” I believe Humber was considered the centerpiece of the deal, while Gomez was that token...

Series notes versus Brewers and more

  The Reds will aim for a winning homestand this weekend when they welcome the Milwaukee Brewers to town. But to do so they will have to sweep the three-game set after dropping two out of the first three games of this homestand to the Atlanta Braves. Easier said than done, right? Friday's affair will pit surging rookie Tony Cingrani against Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo...
