Turns out, The Collector has a name. And a reputation. And a story.
The PR battle Ryan Braun lamented is raging anew. For this, he has himself to blame.
I don't know if Braun knowingly used the synthetic testosterone that showed up in his October urine test. But he is guilty of a blatant refusal to quit while he was ahead.
In the news conference that followed his successful...
Barring injury or an unlikely meltdown, Jonathan Lucroy will be the starting catcher when the Milwaukee Brewers open the 2012 season on April 6.
But by all accounts, George Kottaras will be on the roster once again as the team's No. 2 catcher.
The 28-year-old returns for a third season with the Brewers. Last year, he hit .252 in 49 games with five home runs and 17 RBI. Kottaras...
Let me be clear by stating that Alex Rodriguez has never said anything about Ryan Braun’s failed drug test having to do with him taking medicine for herpes.
Of course A-rod wouldn’t because he knows better, as Derek Jeter would have failed way before Braun… right?
Kidding again. But now to the point, as this Braun saga is getting annoying but I wanted to weigh in my opinion...
Ryan Braun is innocent…I guess.
Milwaukee Brewer fans can’t be happier with the way Major League Baseball handled Ryan Braun’s test sample and the subsequent innocent verdict in his PED case. While there might still be questions out there as to what really happened, this T-shirt shows Brew Crew fans can really care less. The dude is innocent. Case closed.
With Spring Training finally upon us and speculation surrounding the future of baseball’s brightest prospects spreads like wildfire, The Golden Sombrero will highlight some of the notable and intriguing Spring Training invitees from each organization.

During Ryan Braun's news conference last Friday, the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder made a number of insinuations about the integrity of the MLB's sample collecting process and the specific collector who took his positive test sample. On Tuesday, a man revealing himself to be the collector of Braun's test, Dino Laurenzi Jr., sent an email to ESPN The Magazine to state his...
By all accounts, 2011 was a lost season for Zach Braddock.
After posting a 1-2 record with a 2.94 ERA in 2010, the 24-year-old made the opening day roster for the first time in his brief major league career last spring and figured to be a key part of the Brewers' bullpen.
In early May, though, Braddock went to the 15-day disabled list with a sleep disorder. At the time, some...
While Ryan Braun’s suspension over a positive drug test has ended with it being overturned, I think everybody recognizes that his trial has only just begun. While the suspension being lifted was a boost to the Milwaukee Brewers, it probably would have actually been better for Braun’s reputation had he gotten suspended but for reasons
Brewers closer John Axford had another successful Oscar night, correctly predicting 11 of the 15 winners at Sunday night's Academy Awards after going 11-for-13 last year. Perhaps some day, the Brewers' resident film buff will hold a statuette of his own.

Let the Countdown to games being as we now stand 5 days shy of the 1st game of Spring Training against the San Francisco Giants. I've avoided talking much about what the Brewers lineup and fielding will look like because we knew so little about what would happen to Braunie. Well now we know and it's as good a time as any to try and construct what a potential Brewers lineup...
PHOENIX (AP) -- John Axford was fighting food poisoning last spring, leaving the Milwaukee Brewers uncertain about his future with the team. After a breakthrough season, they no longer have any doubts about the tall Canadian closer.
"Command wasn't good, velocity wasn't good, so we weren't sure," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke recalled. "You can't make...
Last season, Chris Narveson was one of the most pleasant surprises on the Milwaukee Brewers' roster.Installed as the fifth starter, behind aces Yovani Gallardo, Zack Greinke, Shaun Marcum and fellow lefty Randy Wolf, little was expected of the then-29-year-old.Quickly, though, Narveson established himself as a bona fide link in one of the National League's best starting rotations...
