MLB Power Rankings: June Edition

30. Milwaukee Brewers Honestly, just nothing has gone right for them this year.  Lohse and Garza have played very poorly and Jimmy Nelson is their best pitcher, which perfectly exemplifies how bad they’ve been collectively on the mound. The Brewers haven’t been much better at the plate either.  Ryan Braun is a shell of what he once was, Carlos Gomez is having a somewhat rough...

Watch: Martin Maldonado hits walk off homer in 17th inning

After Mark Trumbo hit a game tying home run in the 8th inning nobody would score until the 17th inning. Matt Garza was used a day before his start, both teams combined to use 16 pitchers, and Paul Goldschmidt reached base 7 (!!!) times before Martin Maldonado hit a solo homer off Vidal Nuno to send everybody home. The Brewers move to 17-34, last place in the National League Central...

Milwaukee Brewers: Everyone should be tradable

The Brewers should consider trading Carlos Gomez among many others. Barring a miraculous turnaround the Milwaukee Brewers will not be chasing a World Series trophy this season. They are sitting in the cellar with the worst record in the major leagues and are already 16.5 games back in the division and over 10 games behind in the wild card. It doesn’t take a lot of thought to...

Carlos Gomez on tiff with Bumgarner: 'He's not my dad'

During Tuesday night’s Giants-Brewers game at Miller Park, Milwaukee outfielder Carlos Gomez wasn’t pleased with fouling off a pitch from Madison Bumgarner, and swore at himself.

Attanasio, Melvin to blame for Milwaukee Brewers 2015 season

Mark Attanasio has done a lot of good things for the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He was front and center for the only two playoff appearances of my lifetime. He contributed to signing Ryan Braun to a career-long contract, which was a great move at the time. Braun was yet to be busted and it looked like the Crew had locked in a future Hall of Famer. Finally, what also seemed like...

Brewers Could Trade Braun, Gomez, Or Segura For Right Price

Milwaukee beat writer Todd Rosiak of the Journal-Sentinel believes the Brewers would trade outfielder Ryan Braun, but only if a team were to take on his entire salary which he calls unlikely. “I’d think they most certainly would, but because of the money he’s owed – his extension doesn’t even kick in until next season – it’s highly unlikely unless the Brewers would...

WATCH: Khris Davis trolls umps after controversial homer

A bizarre sight at Miller Park today: Brewers outfielder Khris Davis hit a home run, only to be called out on the play for not touching home plate – a call which would be reversed. Here’s how it all went down. After hitting a juicy fastball off of Giants righty Tim Lincecum out of the park, Davis proceeded to do what any baseball player does when you hit a dinger – round...

Brewers pitcher Will Smith ejected after pine tar is spotted on arm

In the seventh inning of Thursday’s Brewers-Braves, Milwaukee reliever Will Smith was ejected in the seventh inning after Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez spotted some pine tar on Smith’s arm. The umpiring crew conferred, spotted the pine tar on Smith, and booted him from the game. Smith’s infraction wasn’t nearly as blatant as Michael Pineda’s violation last year, in which...

Scooter Gennett Demoted from Kids Club?

With Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett’s recent demotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the diminutive player also may have lost his place as the face of the team’s “Kids Club.” Earlier this month an email was sent out advertising the benefits of the Kids Club, which does have its merits to be sure.  It’s interesting, though, that after being prominently featured in...

Milwaukee Brewers: Can a season be lost in April?

Rough starts in MLB aren’t usually a big deal. Even if you lose eight of your first 10 games, there are still over 150 left to play. But what if the entire month turns out like that? For the Milwaukee Brewers, such was their April. It mercifully came to an end on Thursday, with their record an abysmal 5-17, the worst mark in all of baseball. And while they won’t be this bad...
