Brewers Boosting Doubters Early

Before the season started, there was a lot of fiery talk from the Brewers brass.  They were going to build on their “150 days” of first-place fortitude, dadgummit, they were going to use the disappointment of 2014’s conclusion to figure things out successfully in 2015.  And hopefully they’d have a good start to the season again. D’oh. After losing heartlessly 4-0 to the...

Jean Segura’s hot start is encouraging

There’s not much going right for the Brewers in the young season and therefore not much for Brewers fans to celebrate. One bright spot, though, is the also young Jean Segura’s hot start. After experiencing the worst year of his personal and professional life Segura is storming back. Last year he hit .246/.289/.326. As of today, Milwaukee’s shortstop is hitting .333/.379/.529...

What to Make of Brewers Involvement with Problematic DARE Program?

Despite the decades-old wisdom of Charles Barkley, many people continue to think of professional athletes as role models.  A lot of the work done by sports teams and players is certainly admirable – the Brewers Community Foundation has a great reputation for its charitable programs, and plenty of individual players are engaged in their own philanthropic pursuits.  On the other...

Milwaukee Brewers: First week observations

Ryan Braun and the Brewers have started off the 2015 season cold. Here are a few observations for the Milwaukee Brewers (2-5) first week of the 2015 MLB season: 1.  Hitting has not gone well. For a team that was fifth in the National League last season in OPS, the Brewers find themselves currently in 11th while scoring the fourth fewest runs. Hitting was supposed to be the strength...

What could a Milwaukee Brewers fire sale look like?

This is not an overreaction piece. This is a reality piece. Even before the Milwaukee Brewers began the season 1-5, my predictions had them finishing fourth in the NL Central. Their starting offense is above average when its clicking, but there’s absolutely no depth. The same can be said for the starting rotation and bullpen. The Brewers have a chance to be really bad in 2015,...

Game 6: Pirates 10 Brewers 2

There was a brief moment in which I was sure this game was headed in the opposite direction. After Casey Sadler mostly cruised through the Brewers’ lineup on the first pass, he gave up a hard-hit double to Hector Gomez in the eight spot. When Carlos Gomez came up shortly after, Sadler barely got a 91 mph sinker past him on the first pitch of the at-bat, with Gomez swinging for...

Milwaukee Brewers: Ugly start to say the least

While a baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint, it’s always in a team’s best interest to not start a campaign looking pathetic. But pathetic is unfortunately a very apt term for how the Milwaukee Brewers have played in their first four games of the season. The Brewers are 0-4 and have been outgunned and outmatched at every turn. Almost everything about the team just stinks...

Fireworks went off during Carlos Gomez’s first plate appearance

During Wednesday’s Rockies-Brewers game at Miller Park, Carlos Gomez’s plate appearance in the bottom of the first inning was interrupted after two pitches by an unlikely source – fireworks. Yeah, that’s the last thing you expect when you’re in the box getting ready to take some hacks. Those fireworks weren’t a sign of things to come for Milwaukee, however. Gomez walked...

WATCH: Fireworks go off during Gomez's at-bat

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez was concentrating hard on the task at hand. Prepare to hit the 90-plus pitch coming his way from Colorado Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler. And then… Whoever had the bright idea or made the ridiculous mistake to set off fireworks in the middle of an at-bat is probably getting a talk to right now. For Gomez, he looked pretty calm after...
