The Tuesday Takeaway
All eyes, from fans’ to scouts’, were on Zack Greinke when the Brewers ace took the mound last night at Citizens Bank Park. His team had lost four straight and was seven games under .500 coming into the second game of the series in Philadelphia, but Greinke was pitching less for the Brewers of today and more for the Brewers of tomorrow. Apparently felled by the team’s decision to start him on back-to-back days before the All-Star break, the 28-year-old righty had only two chances to rebuild his trade value before the July 31 deadline.
Two hours and 51 minutes later, the Brewers’ losing streak had reached five and their record had dropped to 44-52. But if there are such things as moral victories for organizations, Tuesday’s 7-6 defeat certainly was one for Milwaukee.
Fresh off of an 11-day rest, Greinke tossed seven innings of one-run ball, needing only 87 pitches to record those 21 outs. His fastball was back up to the mid-90s, and his curveball was...
BEST OF MAXIM
It was the question in the back of everyone's mind and on the tip of many tongues as the Milwaukee Brewers' ace pitcher took the mound against Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Was this Zack Greinke's last start in a Brewers uniform?
It's a question that Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said wasn't on his mind before the game.
"I don't think that way," Roenicke...
With the Milwaukee Brewers falling fast in the National League Central race, they have become sellers as the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline approaches. There biggest piece is former Cy-Young winner Zack Grienke who is unlikely to sign a long-term extension with the team.
Seems the Boston Red Sox with all their pitching woes could be a player in the chase for his services.
The Milwaukee Brewers eliminated any uncertainty regarding their intentions for pitcher Zack Greinke when general manager Doug Melvin stated that Greinke will be traded before Tuesday's trading deadline, USA Today reported Thursday. Making it public that a team intends to trade a player is rare, because it tends to hurt their negotiating power with potential trade partners...
Apparently, Zack Greinke is healthy.
Now it gets interesting.
After a 10-day layoff -- reason: battery recharge -- Greinke demonstrated his health to every interested general manager and scout with a command performance Tuesday night. He allowed one run on three hits over seven innings in Philadelphia; he struck out five, walked no one and hit a home run -- off Cliff Lee -- for...
Shane Victorino and starting pitcher Zack Greinke are among the few being scouted tonight, Jim Salisbury reports. Victorino is the talk of most trade situations that could happen for the Phillies before the trade deadline. He's not alone, there have also been rumors of dealing away Pence or Polanco.
Zack Greinke has found himself in a very Ryan Dempster-esque situation. He...
Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin confirmed to USA Today that the Brewers will indeed trade Greinke before the trade deadline.
The Brewers are in the midst of a disappointing season and are looking to sell after being swept by both the Cincinnati reds and Philadelphia Phillies.
Greinke and the Brewers have not had contract negotiations since Spring Training and he informed...
Last night, the Phillies capped off an extraordinary comeback in the series opener against the Brewers. Down 6-3 in the bottom half of the 9th, the Phillies mounted four runs off of Francisco "Beats His Father-in-Law" Rodriguez to win the game, 7-6. It seemed like the baseball Gods of 2008 pulled a highlight reel from that season and stuck it in this 2012 campaign. Okay...

The Phightin’ Phillies are coming off back-to-back dramatic wins. Could this be the return of the old Phillies? The energy in the ninth inning of last night’s game was...
At the height of trading season, teams often send confusing messages, making it difficult to decipher their intentions.
That said, the Chicago White Sox will be a team to watch in the next week, with the non-waiver deadline approaching at 4 p.m. ET July 31.
White Sox general manager Ken Williams already has acquired third baseman Kevin Youkilis and right-handed reliever Brett Myers...
The Atlanta Braves missed out on Ryan Dempster and may look to Zack Greinke to fill the void.
The Milwaukee Brewers held out as long as they could. They focused talk on getting back into the NL Central race instead of becoming sellers at the July 31 trade deadline. They spoke of high hopes and soon-to-be-realized potential.
But on Wednesday, as the Brewers boarded a plane back to Milwaukee having lost six straight games on the road their longest losing streak of the season...
For their last full series of July, the Washington Nationals (58-39) will travel to Milwaukee, a city filled with the ghosts of their past failures, to face the Milwaukee Brewers (44-53). Success in this city has been elusive for the Nats, as the Brewers swept them the last two times they visited Miller Park, and the Nats haven't won a game there since July 28, 2009.
