LYLE OVERBAY RUMORS & GOSSIP

For the First Time Since 2011 the Brewers Have a “Real” First Baseman

After the 2013 season, it was obvious that the Brewers were in serious need of help at 1B.

Key Ingredients: Lyle Overbay at the Bat

One person influential to the Brewers’ strong start was not even alive when the season began. When Eddie Overbay was born on April 17, his father, Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay, was hitting just .100 with a .480 OPS. However, since being reinstated from the paternity list, the elder Overbay has gone on a tear. The 37-year-old Washington native has compiled a six-game hit streak...

Re-Sign or Let Him Walk: Lyle Overbay

Lyle Overbay is a pleasure to watch, and one of these days, we are really going to miss him

In March, when the Retrieval Empire cashed in its Raleigh Coupons and signed Lyle Overbay, the wheels in every blogsmith's mind began to rotate. We said to ourselves, "Let the hilarity ensue!"Lyle O-for-three... Lyle Overmatched... Lyle NoCanPlay... You don't get enough names like that. (We never imagined Chien-Ming Wang was on the way.)
