Milwaukee Brewers: An ode to Yuniesky Betancourt

I want to admit at the outset of this article that I am from Denver, so my focus is on New York and the Super Bowl. With that said, there was some huge news regarding the Milwaukee Brewers this week and I would feel guilty if I didn’t address it this week. For those of you who haven’t heard the news, Yuniesky Betancourt recently signed a deal to go play for the Orix Buffaloes...

The remarkable career of Yuniesky Betancourt

The baseball world has been filled with stories about remarkable baseball players whose careers may or may not be rewarded with a nod to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Baseball writers who have a vote in such proceedings are filling columns on how remarkable they thought each career was. Those of us without a vote are doing the same and making fun or tearing our shirts asunder over the...

Yuniesky Betancourt Must Be the Greatest Teammate of All Time (Because His WAR is Awful)

(Image: Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images) It’s no secret Yuniesky Betancourt has turned about to be who fans thought he was, his uncharacteristically hot April notwithstanding.  While no one expects much from Yuni at this point, a recent blog post by NBC Sports columnist Joe Posnanski really put Betancourt’s lack of productivity in perspective: Betancourt is well under replacement...

No...Yuni B is Still as Yuni B as Ever.

Earlier today, Jim Breen / @JP_Breen - head writer at the wonderful Disciples of Uecker site and a contributor at fangraphs.com - asked fans, via twitter, if they thought Yuniesky Betancourt had "fundamentally changed as a player." This question was asked in light of Betancourt's unexpected offensive contributions as an everyday player so far this season. For those...

Fan Makes Spectacular Catch On Yuni Betancourt’s Home Run

Yuniesky Betancourt crushed a three-run homer to left field to give the Brewers an early lead in the top of the first, but it was the play in the stands which got the most attention. Check out the young Padres fan who laid out backwards to haul in the dinger with no regard for his safety. Very impressive work. Your browser does not support iframes.

Phils Lose to Boston, Cut Betancourt

The Phillies lost to the Boston Red Sox in Clearwater, 7-6. After the game, they cut veteran infielder Yuniesky Betancourt, allowing him to pursue other opportunities. Betancourt played well with the Phillies, hitting .447 over 17 games. However, with Kevin Frandsen and Freddy Galvis ahead of him, and the need for a fifth outfielder, Betancourt was expendable. On top of that, his...

Cardinals Interested in Betancourt

Nick Cafardo slipped this tidbit in his morning post over at the Boston Globe this morning: (Betancourt) has improved his visibility, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see a team deal for him before the season. The best thing that happened for Betancourt is Jimmy Rollins playing in the WBC. Betancourt is also in good shape, which has been a challenge for him in the past. With a March...

Betancourt out to prove he is everyday player

When the Royals demoted second baseman Johnny Giavotella last Sunday, it signaled that the organization wasn't willing to sacrifice any defense. It almost surely means that Royals fans are going to see a whole lot more of Yuniesky Betancourt. Manager Ned Yost's plan is to split time between Betancourt and Chris Getz. But behind the scenes the feeling is that Betancourt...
