The Milwaukee Brewers are currently buried in 4th place in the NL Central, but they remain the hunt by a slim margin. They have a lot of catching up to do and must decide in the next few weeks if they are going to sell off some of their key trade deadline candidates or are [...]

Brewers expect Marcum's return in August

MILWAUKEE When Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Shaun Marcum was scratched from a start against his former team on June 19, the belief was that Marcum wouldn't be out more than a start or two with elbow tightness. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and Marcum himself both said that they expected the Brewers No. 3 pitcher to be back after the All-Star break. But on Sunday, a few days after...

Brewers turn to Greinke one more time

MILWAUKEE Before the All-Star break, Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke became just the second pitcher since 2002 to start back-to-back games when an ejection in the first inning of last Saturday's loss to Houston prompted Milwaukee to use him two days in a row. But on Friday, Greinke is bettering his own accomplishment. With the first-place Pittsburgh Pirates in town, the Brewers...

Brewers pitchers rack up 44 Ks in series

MILWAUKEE When Yovani Gallardo walked off of the field at Miller Park to a standing ovation on Sunday afternoon, he had no idea that he'd just thrown the most strikeouts (14) in a single game in his career. Gallardo didn't actually learn of his career effort until one of the Brewers' other starters told him so in the clubhouse after the game. For a team that has become...

Lucroy to return to BP on Saturday

MILWAUKEE After breaking his hand in a freak suitcase accident back on May 27, it appears Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is inching closer to a return to the team's lineup. Lucroy threw to second base from home plate on Friday and had been hitting off of a tee since Monday. He said he plans on taking live batting practice on Saturday. "It's getting pretty...

Brewers frustrated by mistakes in close game

MILWAUKEE A six-inning effort from Marco Estrada was enough to give the Brewers a one-run lead heading into the seventh inning of Saturday's game against the first-place Pirates. But as they have been for much of the season, Saturday's one-run lead wasn't very kind to the Brewers. This time, it was defensive lapses that were the cause of Milwaukee's late-inning...

Gallardo K's 14 as Brewers top Bucs

Yovani Gallardo struck out a career-high 14 in seven innings and the Milwaukee Brewers used a four-run sixth to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1 on Sunday. Gallardo (8-6) gave up four hits, including Andrew McCutchen's homer in the fourth. Gallardo struck out two in every inning except the sixth and the side in the seventh. A.J. Burnett's nine-game winning streak ended...

Is Aramis Ramirez on the Trading Block?

Photo: Benny Sieu/US PresswireA recent report suggested the Los Angeles Dodgers could be thinking about Aramis Ramirez as a potential trade acquisition as they attempt to shore up third base and their inconsistent offense.  This news is not shocking by any means, but we haven’t heard the name of Ramirez thrown out there so much in the world of trade speculation.  Greinke has...

Zack Greinke, Ryan Dempster Are Among Standouts That Could Be Dealt Soon

With the July 31 trade deadline approaching, a handful of players are being dangled as trade bait. Whether it's All-Star caliber players, borderline standouts or role players, there's a bevy of talent available. A player's contract -- and the emergence of farm hands -- usually triggers the process. Before the swapping season begins, NESN.com took a look at the biggest...

Cody Ransom’s grand slam buries Bucs

Final: Brewers 10, Pirates 7 WP: Francisco Rodriguez (2-4, 3.86 ERA) LP: Tony Watson (4-1, 5.00 ERA) This was just one of those really strange games. First off, it took forever (3 hours, 50 mins). Second, a lot of really good things happened for the Pirates. And third, a lot of really bad things happened for the Pirates. Unfortunately, the bad things out-weighed the good things....

Cardinals-Brewers Preview

Sitting in fourth place in the NL Central, the Milwaukee Brewers know their upcoming efforts could be make or break. With things starting to finally go their way, the Brewers look for their recent momentum to carry over Monday night in the first of three with the visiting St. Louis Cardinals, winners of 10 of 13 in this series. After winning its first division title since 1982...

A Quick Analysis of the Next Nine Games

Photo: Jim Prisching/AP With no actual baseball to write about, a lot of digital ink has been spilled on the long-term future of the Milwaukee Brewers, especially whether they will use the upcoming trading deadline as an opportunity to buy, sell, or do some of both. Nick Michalski, Vince from Miller Park Drunk, and the folks at Brew Crew Ball have already wrote excellent articles...
