Sometimes you may not notice certain things about certain players because you don’t pay attention to their every at bat, inning pitched, or whatever. Even in this wonderful age, where so much information is at our fingertips at virtually all times, things can slip past and go unnoticed to the baseball-loving masses. I mean, sure, if it is a “superstar” that is struggling mightily or a mighty struggler producing like a “superstar” then, yeah, the media and talking heads will notice and sort of force feed this information down our proverbial throats. However, for the majority of players, you know the tweeners or those on the cusp of stardom or, for that matter, mediocrity, certain statistics or information can be widely missed. All of this, as you should have guessed from the title, brings to me to the ever talented, Yovani Gallardo. First, let me set the scene, even though many of you reading this are probably familiar with YoGa’s tale. Yovanni Gallardo broke into the majors with th...

Francisco Rodriguez joins Brewers Class-A roster

Francisco Rodriguez's attempted road back to the big leagues will begin Tuesday night, as the former Brewers reliever has been added to the roster at advanced Class-A Brevard County. Signed to a minor league contract on April 17, Rodriguez has a provision in his contract giving the Brewers just 30 days to add him to the Major League roster or he will be released. The 31-year...

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...

Bianchi ready to deliver whatever the team needs

MILWAUKEE -- If a player can play shortstop, he has a good chance at being able to play anywhere on the infield. At least that's what the Milwaukee Brewers are hoping for. When Jeff Bianchi was reinstated from the disabled list last Thursday, he made five shortstops on the roster. Josh Prince was sent back to Triple-A Nashville the next day, so Milwaukee currently has four shortstops...

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Yuni B

Let's start this off properly: Yuniesky Betancourt is the worst shortstop in Brewers history. That might not necessarily be true, but it feels true. In 2011, his last full season as the Brewers shortstop, he was the worst everyday shortstop in the league. Or at the very least in the bottom five. Even when he did good things, he always followed them up with boneheaded plays, errors...

Brewers strike first, eventually end losing skid

MILWAUKEE -- All it took for the Milwaukee Brewers to snap their five-game losing streak was an opponent not wearing "St. Louis" across its chest. Facing one of the American League's best teams, the Brewers jumped on the Rangers for five runs in the first inning and got good pitching and defense throughout to hold on for a 6-3 victory. After a tough weekend series...

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...

Yuniesky Betancourt Hasn’t Changed a Bit

I know it’s not like me to use such a provocative, declarative headline. Truth be told, I’d be more comfortable with “Yuniesky Betancourt Hasn’t Changed a Bit, Probably”, just so I can cover all my bases. But here we are, and I think it needs to be said, on the heels of Betancourt slamming his eighth dinger of the still very young regular season. This is a time for sanity...

Brewers-Reds Preview

Yovani Gallardo knows that even though it's early, the upcoming stretch of road games is a key one for the Milwaukee Brewers. Jay Bruce finally homered again for the Cincinnati Reds, and facing Gallardo could help him get on track. These NL Central rivals meet for the first time in 2013 on Friday night in Cincinnati, with NL batting leader Carlos Gomez of the Brewers looking...

Brewers looking to snap five-game losing streak

After a promising start to a nine-game homestand, the Milwaukee Brewers are in the midst of a five-game skid. The Brewers look to avoid a season-high sixth straight loss as they open a two-game interleague set against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night at Miller Park. Milwaukee (14-16) held a 22-12 scoring advantage over Pittsburgh to win the first two on the home stretch, but has...

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...
