The search is over! The famous Milwaukee Brewers’ Italian racing sausage has been returned safe and sound.
The costume was lying unused in a backroom at the Milwaukee Curling Club during a fundraiser on Feb. 16th when someone swiped it. It was seen about an hour later bar hopping around town, according to reports.
From there, he became a missing link…
On Thursday, he was returned. Via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
“The hot sausage reportedly was dropped off at TJ Ryan’s bar in Cedarburg.
Two men — one wearing a hoodie pulled tight over his face — lugged the larger-than-life link into the bar just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, plopped him on a bar stool and warned staff, “You did not see anything,” said bartender Jen Mohney.
“Like I didn’t just see two guys plop a sausage on a bar stool,” Mohney said.
Mohney said the two left in less than a minute and she immediately called police.”

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez has left a spring training game against the Los Angeles Angels with an apparent leg injury.
Ramirez snapped an 0-for-10 skid to start the spring with a bloop double down the left-field line in the third inning Saturday.

One of the challenges when it comes to ranking players by position in fantasy baseball is trying to determine which player is going to have that breakout season and return a profit to your auction buy or draft pick. When reviewing the list of catchers for the 2013 season, my pick to break out is catcher Jonathan Lucroy of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Lucroy was on pace for that type of...
The Italian Sausage costume that is used during the “Sausage Race” at every Milwaukee Brewers home game was returned to a bar Wednesday after it was reported missing earlier in the day, and it sounds like the people who stole it had themselves quite the sausage fest.
People claiming to be responsible for the “prank” emailed USA Today to detail their experience with the costume...
Aramis Ramirez has been remarkably consistent in his career, posting a .289 average or better and at least 25 homers with 90 RBI in nine of his 12 seasons.His batted profile over the years has averaged out to what I like to call the “perfect power hitter’s batting profile,” which is 19.9 LD%, 35.0 GB%, and 45.1 FB%. The line drive rate is high enough to keep his BABIP rates...
The injuries are coming in bunches for the Milwaukee Brewers.
Aramis Ramirez doubled for his first hit of the spring Saturday but left Milwaukee's 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels with a strained left knee.
