Roenicke's future uncertain as season comes to disappointing end

MILWAUKEE -- The ambient sounds in the Milwaukee Brewers clubhouse following Sunday's season finale weren't those of celebration, and certainly not what anybody in the organization expected to hear merely six weeks ago. Instead, sounds of packing tape being peeled off the roll and hands slapping as goodbyes were issued filled the room. After leading the National League Central...

Journeyman Clark's gamble paid off with spot on Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Whether it worked out or not, Matt Clark was going to live with his decision. He was 27 years old and stuck playing in Double-A for an organization with not much use for him beyond minor-league filler. So, Clark asked for and was granted his release on June 25. "You have to sit there and wait or do what I did and take a chance," Clark said. "Without anything...

The Picture of Jonathan Broxton

As long weekends go, this past Labor Day holiday was particularly unenjoyable for Brewers fans. As Milwaukee’s losing streak stretched to six, the club has slipped behind St. Louis in the NL Central race. In order to stem the recent reverses, GM Doug Melvin pulled off an unusual intradivisional trade at the waiver Trade Deadline. The cavalry coming to the Brewers’ rescue takes...

Gerardo Parra’s Further Impact for Brewers

In the heat of a pennant race, teams often let a rival’s actions shape their own decisions. As a result, when St. Louis fired a shot across the Brewers’ bow by bolstering their rotation, Milwaukee needed to make a countermove. Of course, Doug Melvin’s retort – gaining Gerardo Parra in exchange for two minor leaguers – stands stratospheres below the Cardinals’ acquisitions...

A look back at Brewers' trades in July under Melvin

If the history of Doug Melvin's tenure as general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers leaves any indication, the odds of a trade happening before Thursday's non-waiver deadline are high. Melvin has made a July trade in nine of his 11 seasons with the Brewers, including seven of the last eight years. Some have been minor and a couple have been minor, but Melvin usually does something...

Bolstering the Brewers’ Bullpen

Baseball fans can discount nearly anything they hear at the trade deadline. Therefore, Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin’s suggestion that he might bolster his bullpen comes with enough grains of salt to fill the Dead Sea. Perhaps Melvin’s comments were merely an elaborate smokescreen designed to conceal his true intentions. Yet despite the unreliability of such statements, an upgrade...

Nothing ordinary about Brewers' international signing Lara

MILWAUKEE -- Balls fly into the second deck at Miller Park regularly during batting practice, as numerous big-league hitters have put on impressive displays over the years. But a 16-year-old? Gilbert Lara isn't ordinary for his age. The Milwaukee Brewers have invested $3.1 million in the Dominican shortstop, by far the richest international signing in franchise history. It didn...

Brewers' Melvin won't make trade just to make trade

MILWAUKEE -- There aren't many general managers around baseball planning to spill their trade deadline plans to the media, for a variety of reasons.  If a general manager or manager comes out and goes into depth about where their team needs to improve and a deal doesn't end up getting done to address that area, clubhouse morale becomes a concern.

Brewers Rumors: Milwaukee doesn't expect to make any moves

The Milwaukee Brewers currently hold one of the best records in baseball and are in control of the NL Central. They are also not planning to be aggressive as the trade deadline approaches. The health of the bullpen is potentially the only issue that could prompt a move. Two right-handers, Jim Henderson (shoulder) and Tyler Thornburg (elbow) are currently on the disabled list and...

The Brewers Are All Stars (Pitching Edition)

The Brewers offense has been great this year, but of course it has. That's Doug Melvin's thing. He builds a team that hits a bunch of homeruns and then he fills it with pitchers who give up even more. Sure, he's built a team that hasn't done that but he did it by trading like 15 guys for one and a half good seasons of Shaun Marcum and Zack Greinke. It's not his...
