Rangers officially get Yovani Gallardo, Brewers receive 3 prospects in trade

Until the Nationals hijacked Sunday’s baseball headlines with news of signing Max Scherzer, the biggest MLB news of the day appeared to be the Rangers making a deal with the Brewers for Yovani Gallardo.

Best to Keep Sports and Politics Separate

I don’t know how to quantify this, but I’ve long assumed Jonathan Lucroy is the most popular Brewer.  Sure, Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez were voted into the All-Star Game last year, but I sense that Lucroy has broader appeal.  If there were a tool for measuring crush/man-crush intensity among Milwaukee baseball fans, I bet Lucroy would bury the needle.  Not only has Lucroy...

Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy to attend Obama's State of the Union address

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is making an unexpected road trip to Washington. It has nothing to do with playing the Nationals. It's not often that a ballplayer gets to attend a State of the Union address to Congress as the guest of a U.S. senator. So the All-Star accepted an invitation from the office of Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin to watch President Barack Obama's...

Developing changeup could be difference between rotation and bullpen for Nelson

There was nothing left for Jimmy Nelson to prove in Triple-A when he received the call to the big leagues from the Milwaukee Brewers last July. Nelson had dominated the Pacific Coast League to the tune of a 10-2 record and a 1.46 ERA, which ended up earning him the league's pitcher of the year honors despite spending the final four months of the season in the big leagues.

Trevor Hoffman: Not a First Ballot Hall of Famer?

To San Diego Padres fans the very idea of Trevor Hoffman not being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, his first year of eligibility, would be nothing short of sheer blasphemy. However, that is exactly what some baseball experts and Hall of Fame voters have been stating since the 2015 Hall of Fame class was announced on January 6th.

What Other Brewers Broadcasters Are Wall of Honor Worthy?

Yesterday, the Brewers announced that the latest inductee to their Wall of Honor would be longtime TV color analyst Bill Schroeder.  I was a bit surprised upon first hearing the news.  Based on my understanding of Wall of Honor qualifications, Schroeder was 800+ plate appearances and/or one Hall of Fame induction short of meeting inclusion criteria.  As it happens, these things...

10 Crap Brewers Items They’d Like to Sell You

It was around this time last winter when I did a post about the most useless Milwaukee Brewers items for sale on the Internet.
