Recent history suggests good things for Braun, Brewers vs. Cubs

After a rough road trip, could playing Chicago Cubs at Miller Park be just what the doctor ordered for the Milwaukee Brewers? If recent play means anything, then yes, yes it is. Over the last five seasons, the Brewers have dominated the Cubs at home. On a player level, Ryan Braun might be licking his chops as well. He has had as much production against Chicago than any player against...

Which Brewers Players are “That Guy Who Always Kills Us” for Opposing Teams?

At the start of the Brewers’ four-game series in Philadelphia, one of the storylines highlighted by the FSWisconsin team was that Ryan Braun loves to hit in Citizens Bank Park.  It’s no surprise why – after Tuesday’s game, Braun’s slash line was a cool .438/.486/.833 at the home of the Phillies.  No wonder Philadelphia fans were so vociferous last year when Braun hit...

Why the Milwaukee Brewers should move Ryan Braun back to third base

I know! Ryan Braun’s defense at third base was below average. That’s why he was moved to the outfield in the first place, and even at his age, Aramis Ramirez is by far a better defensive third baseman than Ryan Braun ever could be. However, at the end of this season, Rami is gone and third base will be vacated. The first option for the Milwaukee Brewers is to trade Carlos Gomez...

Braun pleased with thumb's progress

Approximately two weeks ago, Ryan Braun underwent another cryotheraphy procedure on his thumb and, according to, so far so good. "Overall it feels pretty good," Braun said. "I'm happy with where it's at. "It's exciting and encouraging that there is an option that makes it better, and there's limited downtime and limited recovery time. So from that perspective, I...

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun left Wednesday's game early with a bout of dizziness, but doesn't believe it's anything to worry about. "It could be from allergies or something. I'm not sure what the cause is," Braun told "I thought it was from being dehydrated and I kept drinking water. It wasn't getting better. It was kind of weird. But I'm fine." (h/t Brewers...

A Closer Look At Ryan Braun As A Potential Trade Target

Joe D had an interesting exchange on Twitter today with SNY personality Sal Licata. Licata is like me in that he wants the Mets to go after not only a big bat, but the biggest ones on the market. Here is the exchange: Since the media attention surrounding Braun’s suspension died down in 2013, he has faded into relative obscurity. He is no longer given the attention of a star...

Ground ball rate might predict Ryan Braun’s thumb woes

Back in April, I explored the question of how worried Brewers fans should be about Ryan Braun. He’s infamous now for his PED suspension but the larger concern was how his thumb would respond to a cryotherapy procedure he underwent in the offseason. It just so happened he got off to a terrible start and so a lot of people simply assumed it was the thumb. My assertion at the time...
