WILL SMITH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brewers Injury Update: Will Smith dealing with back spasms

After last night's victory against against the Washington Nationals it appeared that the Milwaukee Brewers were shaking things up with the back end of the bullpen as Rob Wooten and Zach Duke were called on to pitch in the eighth inning instead of reliever, Will Smith.  But that is not the case, according to Brewers' beat writer, Adam McCalvy, Smith was unavailable due to back...

Brewers' Will Smith, bullpen parody singer Will Smith

MILWAUKEE -- Besides getting the job done on the mound this season, the bullpen crew of the Milwaukee Brewers has found time to have some fun along the way. The latest creation from the relievers that brought us "Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday" is a tribute video to Will Smith -- the actor, not the Brewers left-handed setup man. Milwaukee's Smith is joined by teammates Zach Duke, Mike...

Brewers bullpen pays tribute to Will Smith in music video

The Milwaukee Brewers have been on a tear with viral videos this season, and the latest one is a tribute to Will Smith, starring…Milwaukee reliever Will Smith and the rest of the Brewers bullpen in a mashup of various Will Smith songs. I almost want the Brewers to keep playing well just so we can keep getting more videos like this. These are phenomenal.

Revisiting the Aoki-Smith Swap with Josh Duggan

After nearly three months of the 2014 season, the December 2013 Nori Aoki-Will Smith trade between the Milwaukee Brewers and Kansas City Royals looks like a brilliant move for Brewers GM Doug Melvin.  Smith has been a crucial part of the Brewers bullpen, but the lineup has shown a lingering vacancy in terms of a true leadoff hitter, at least when Rickie Weeks is in that spot. ...

Smith's 'slider of death' is just that to opposing hitters

MILWAUKEE -- For a pitch to get a nickname, it has to be pretty special. The origins of Will Smith's slider being called "the slider of death" are unknown, but the moniker certainly fits the effectiveness of the pitch. Although other relievers throw sliders at a higher percentage  -- Smith entered Thursday using the pitch 30.7 percent of the time -- it's hard to argue any pitcher...

Lefty reliever Smith making name for himself with Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- The initial reaction to the trade that sent Norichika Aoki to Kansas City this past December was lukewarm at best, mostly because nobody had heard of the left-handed pitcher the Milwaukee Brewers were getting in return. Will Smith hasn't needed much time to completely change the perception of the deal. The Brewers flipped a 32-year-old outfielder in the final year of...

Surprised by trade, Smith sees plenty of positives with Brewers

PHOENIX -- When Will Smith reported to the Brewers' Maryvale, Ariz., spring training complex last week, he was about 20 miles from where he expected to be this February. Coming off a 2013 season in which he emerged as one of the most reliable arms in the Kansas City Royals bullpen, the 24 year-old lefty seemed ticketed for a spot in the Royals bullpen in 2014. Recalled by the Royals...

Milwaukee Brewers offseason rumors

The Milwaukee Brewers have not made many moves in the offseason and are the only team yet to sign a Major League Free agent. This is not an accident because of General Manager Doug Melvin’s past experience with free agents.  After being burned in the past with the large contracts and small production of pitchers like Jeff Suppan, Randy Wolf and David Riske, it fair to understand...

The Brewers, Will Smith, and a Breakthrough

One of baseball’s most compelling storylines during the 2013 season was the monster breakthrough campaign of Chris Davis. One of baseball’s most quietly hilarious storylines during the 2013 season was the very similar campaign of Khris Davis down the stretch. Last year, the Brewers didn’t have a whole lot going for them, but Davis shined rather unexpectedly, and the team liked...
