Rank Relief: Michael Fiers should stay in the rotation…maybe

McCutch going clutch in extras….walk off My friend asks me on Google Talk today where I was valuing Andrew McCucthen.  Now, walk off home runs aren’t a category in any fantasy league I know, but if they were, you’d be happy with Cutch tonight.  This was your basic late inning relief no out walk off home run.  On a 2-2 count, Cutch took Fiers over the right center field wall...

Brewers' Fiers struggles with command in loss

MILWAUKEE With just three home runs given up in 82 innings before Saturday's start against the Phillies, Michael Fiers had established himself as not only one of the best young pitchers in baseball this season, but also as one of the best, regardless of experience, at limiting long balls. But in a fashion that fell in line with his last start a 2.2-inning stinker that Fiers...

'Deceptive pitching' key to Fiers success

MILWAUKEE When Charlie Sullivan met Michael Fiers for the first time, Fiers was too old to be a big-time prospect. He had too much of an injury history having just recently recovered from a car accident that resulted in four fractured vertebrae. And his fastball was nothing to write home about it hovered in the high 80's. But between innings at a Deerfield Beach High School...

Pitcher Profile: Michael Fiers Is On Fire, Don’t Have No Fears

Looking at his name, I would certainly think it’s pronounced more like “fears,” but it’s actually pronounced “fires.” Infinitely cooler, and certainly appropriate for his immensely successful rookie campaign. With a Brewers starting rotation dealing with an early season-ending injury to Chris Narveson, then Marco Estrada pulling his quad rounding first, Michael Fiers...

Milwaukee's Fiers has a blue-flame passion

MILWAUKEE It was nearing 2:30 a.m. in early January 2008, as Michael Fiers fought to keep his eyes open. He stared into the darkness of the Florida Turnpike ahead of him, continuing to drive on, while his vision grew ever hazier. He already knew this had been a bad decision, choosing to avoid the traffic by driving through the night, rather than waiting till morning to begin his...

Fiers looks to spoil Chicago's comeback

The Chicago White Sox have an opportunity to reclaim the AL Central lead despite struggling most of June. Having Jose Quintana on the mound could increase their chances. The impressive rookie tries to help the White Sox to their first series win since early this month when they face the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field. Chicago won a season-high nine straight...

Michael Fiers and Martin Maldonado were supposed to be in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, manning the battery for the Triple-A Nashville Sounds in their road series against the RedHawks.
