All hope isn't completely lost for this year's Milwaukee Brewers

As disastrous as the first two months of the season were for the Milwaukee Brewers, they still aren’t hopeless as the MLB approaches the All-Star break in mid-July. The trade deadline is within 30 days, and will show fans and division rivals how serious the Crew still is about Mission: October. After countless articles and reports of 2015 being nothing more than a disappointment...

Brewers End-Of-Month Report for June

  Miller Park   Brewer’s end-of-month report for June By Robby White As June turns into July for the 2015 Brewers, it is safe to say that this campaign is a lost year. The team has played better since April’s horrendous 5-18 start; they are 12-14 heading into tonight’s game with the Phillies. But too many things are still going alarmingly wrong. For starters, the Brewers...

Past vs. present: Milwaukee Brewers vs. Kansas City Royals series preview

Credit for the renaissance currently underway in the Kansas City Royals organization belongs to two people: Royals general manager Dayton Moore, and Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin. Moore, in the face of a skeptical Kansas City media and populace, stayed the course over several disastrous seasons, drafting and developing prospects and, like Melvin, filling in the gaps...

Brewers 1st-round pick Clark has unique grip on hitting

MILWAUKEE (AP) Brewers first-round draft pick Trent Clark has quite the grip on hitting. The 18-year-old high school senior from Richland, Texas, uses a golf-style grip at the plate, with thumbs positioned up along the bat. The outfielder said the unusual technique helps him with balance and bat control. A team scout said it's a bit unique. Whatever Clark is doing is working - the...

Final draft: Milwaukee Brewers select Trent Clark at #15

The Milwaukee Brewers took Major League Baseball by surprise Monday night. With their first round pick—15 overall—the Brewers selected high school outfielder Trent Clark from North Richland Hills, TX. A left-handed six-foot, 200-pound outfielder, Clark was not linked to the Brewers in any mock drafts. Perhaps he should have been: Clark’s physique matches almost perfectly to...

Firing Roenicke now brings Brewers' decisions of past into question

If you retrace the Brewers’ steps, both major decisions they made in retaining Ron Roenicke as manager were defensible. They chose not to fire Roenicke after last season’s 9-22 finish, giving him the benefit of the doubt after the team arguably over-achieved for the first five months. They then exercised Roenicke’s option for 2016 in March, seeking to avoid the perception that...

Firing a Manager Brings Out the Worst in (Some) Fans

I’m generally not a fan of firing managers/coaches in any sport.  I’m skeptical that “shaking things up” is the best way to turn around a losing team…but it certainly seems to be a common practice, so what the hell do I know?  I’m not sure what Ron Roenicke could have done to stop Kyle Lohse from giving up homers in every start, or to get Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez...
