Brewers bullpen dominant to start season

MILWAUKEE -- In what is an unpredictable game, the most incalculable aspect of baseball might just be the bullpen. A team needs a good one in order to contend for the postseason, but finding the right mix can prove challenging. The Milwaukee Brewers don't need to be told that.

Brewers' Kintzler brings the right approach to the mound

PHOENIX -- For the first time in his career Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler is all but assured of that he'll be on a major-league roster on Opening Day.

Joining Rodriguez...
