NASHVILLE, Tenn. Rubber boots encased with dried mud sit in the corner of Brad Tammens office at Herschel Greer Stadium. On the back of the door hangs a bright yellow rain jacket, underneath yet another jacket for when the unpredictable spring weather around these parts hits a cold spell. I bought that rain jacket a few weeks ago, the Nashville Sounds vice president and general manager said with a chuckle. It already has come in handy. One moment he could be working on details for a possible new stadium for the Sounds; the next, he might be down on the field wielding a rake while helping get the field ready for that nights game. Or, he could be pounding the pavement around Music City in attempts to attract fans to the 71-home game schedule at the venerable baseball park. So it goes for Tammen, who wears many hats while running the Triple-A minor-league affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers in the Pacific Coast League. A veteran of two-plus decades in various minor-league manageri...

Preds sign 2012 sixth round pick Marek Mazanec…

In a move that could pave the way for Magnus Hellberg to move to the big club, the Nashville Predators have signed 2012 sixth round pick Marek Mazanec to a two-year entry level deal. Mazanec backstopped HC Plzeň to the Czech Extraliga Championship this past season. Hellberg has grown leaps and bounds this season with the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals. So much so that the brass may...

Hellberg went from back-up to Calder Cup Playoffs starter…

When he heard his name, he wasn’t even paying attention. “When I got drafted, I thought they would say my new team, Frölunda,” Magnus Hellberg told us with a smile. “But they said my old one, Almtuna. So I didn’t connect at the beginning. But then I was like ‘Hey! That’s me!’” The general consensus in 2011 (and most years, really) was that the main need for the...

Clune proves to be good pick up for Preds

When the Nashville Predators claimed Rich Clune off of waivers from the Los Angeles Kings, it was hard to figure out exactly how he would fit into the mold in(More here)…

Extra work pays dividends for Brewers' Weeks

MILWAUKEE -- Rickie Weeks was frustrated, so he picked up the phone and called Brewers hitting coach Johnny Narron. He doesn't usually like to get early work in unless it's after a day off, but Weeks met Narron at the park at 12:30 and went to work in the cage and then on the field during batting practice. It's hard to know if his diligent efforts paid off Tuesday night...

Josi next on Preds’ priority list

“We almost have it done for both of them. We are only off on the years and the amount of money we are going to pay them,” Predators General Manager(More here)…

Brewers 12, Pirates 8

Rickie Weeks was so fed up with his season-long slump that he called Brewers hitting coach Johnny Narron for some early batting practice Tuesday. The extra work sure paid off for Weeks, who broke out with a three-run homer and five RBIs to lead Milwaukee over the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-8. Weeks, who began the night batting .167, said he was at Miller Park by 12:30 in the afternoon...

Bautista, Weeks off to slow starts

I'll start this by saying that I've never been one of the more aggressive fantasy owners. Sometimes my patience gets rewarded, while other times having slow-starting hitters on my roster brings my batting average down to a point where recovery is impossible. For instance, my NL-only team has a boatload of slow starters: C - Carlos Ruiz is back, thankfully, as I endured 100...

Pirates 6, Brewers 4

THOSE were the Pirates we came to know and love during the past few weeks. After falling behind yet again at Miller Park, the Bucs pulled off a big comeback and managed to shut Milwaukee down late to get out of Wisconsin with a rare victory. Jeanmar Gomez‘s start went about how most expected it to go. He labored early on and only managed to go four innings and gave up a couple...

The punt game

Long story short: the lock at my apartment got jammed shut last night and no one answered the emergency maintenance number, so I couldn't get into my apartment and as a result didn't see much of last night's game besides Rickie Weeks's homer that sealed the deal for Milwaukee. There were home runs, bad pitching, the Pirates lost at Miller Park. Frankly, I've heard...
