Bianchi couldn't pass up spot in the WBC

Jeff Bianchi was born roughly 4,500 miles from Italy in Lampeter, Pa. He'll be the first one to tell you he's only of Italian descent.

But for the seven years before that, injuries threatened to keep him from ever making it in the sport he loves so much. It's a cruel coincidence that Bianchi clearly doesn't like to call attention to. Instead, in just his second...

Get To Know Jeff Bianchi

Close enough. According to pretty much everybody, Milwaukee's first nine games after the All-Star break are the most vital games ever, making the previous 85 Brewers contests all but meaningless. People are saying this because 1. Such statements cause reaction and panic, which creates more page views, and 2. It's sort of true. The Crew resumes its schedule with consecutive...
