The Milwaukee Brewers were officially eliminated from playoff contention yesterday, and they lost the first game of Fan Appreciation weekend to the Chicago Cubs by a score of 6-4.
Needless to say, it’s a dark time for Brewers fans.
The once promising-looking season has now become a heap of bile in our collective throats. But I don’t want to dwell on the negative emotions encircling...
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Thursday that he has spoken to general manager Doug Melvin about the possibility of Ryan Braun moving to first base”
“I think he’s a good defender in the outfield, learning a new position that he picked up pretty fast. I think he’ll continue to get better in right. We haven’t approached (Braun) about it. It’s just kind of what the needs...
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra had every right to be peeved with at least one St. Louis Cardinals fan during Tuesday’s game at Busch Stadium. Instead, he took the high road, demonstrated a lot of class and even went above and beyond to make nice. While chasing down a Chris Carpenter pop-up that drifted into […] The post Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next...
The Brewers battled back from a brutal first inning to hold the Cardinals scoreless for 11 straight innings and managed just enough offense to eke out a critical victory tonight in extra innings. Gerardo Parra and Wily Peralta kept them in the game early, and a couple of September callups drove in runs to take home the win.
In the first, the Cardinals BABIPed their way to three...
When the Brewers acquired Gerardo Parra on July 31 from Arizona, the idea was to have available an experienced extra outfielder with strong defensive skills and a decent bat should help be needed.
Parra went from fourth outfielder to regular the past week when centerfielder Carlos Gomez was sidelined with a sprained wrist and rightfielder Ryan Braun missed a couple of days on unofficial...
Cyborg Gerardo Parra – by J. Lemont
Before any Braves fans accuse me of copying their “thing”…actually, never mind. In fact, I hadn’t even thought about Cyborg Tommy Hanson until right around the time I was logging in. Just making sure I have myself covered on this one. Good day.

It’s without a doubt that this season hasn’t gone the way the Arizona Diamondbacks would like. But Diamondbacks fans would like to think that the trade deadline was an opportunity to put themselves in a position to succeed next year. Did they do that? Injuries have been the name of the game this...
Rickie Weeks hit a three-run homer and Gerardo Parra had two hits and two RBIs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
The Dodgers went ahead 3-2 in the top of the seventh, then Milwaukee capitalized on two errors by reserve shortstop Justin Turner and scored four runs in their half of the inning.
Weeks hit a 2-2 pitch from Carlos...
I think I’m already sick of talking about Roberto Hernandez, and he hasn’t even thrown a pitch for the Dodgers yet.

MILWAUKEE -- It didn't take Gerardo Parra long to show what he can bring to the Milwaukee Brewers down the stretch.
Parra made a quick impression on the home fans in his debut at Miller Park on Tuesday, blasting a go-ahead home run in the bottom of the seventh before making an impressive sliding catch in foul territory in a critical moment in the top of the eighth inning.
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...
Having already utilized the conventional with walk-off singles and home runs this season, the Milwaukee Brewers used a rare walk-off challenge to beat the San Francisco Giants, 4-3, on Tuesday night.

Before Tuesday’s trade deadline, the Diamondbacks dealt away two big names (and fan favorites) in Gerardo Parra and Martin Prado. These were definitely some controversial moves among the Diamondbacks fan base, but before calling for Kevin Towers’ head, let’s dig a little deeper into these two deals:
The D-backs sent outfielder Gerardo Parra to the...
The Diamondbacks parted with two roster players in Martin Prado and Gerardo Parra before Thursday's trade deadline and although they didn't receive any immediate help in return, it was a new face to the lineup that helped spur a comeback win against the Pirates in front of 20,145 at Chase Field.

With the trade deadline passed, the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals can focus solely on the competitive NL Central race.

By acquiring Gerardo Parra from the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Milwaukee Brewers added a two-time Gold Glove winner to their outfield and a useful left-handed bat to their bench.
What the Brewers didn't do is add a right-handed reliever to their bullpen, something considered one of their top priorities at the deadline.
As it turned out, none of the right-handed relievers thought...
PHOENIX -- They rode to the park together. The often followed each other in the batting order. But Martin Prado and Gerardo Parra went their separate ways Thursday after being moved at the major league non-waiver trade deadline.

Parra is having a down year hitting .259 with a .667 OPS. Parra’s career average is .274 and has sneaky pop and sneaky speed. But he’s also an outstanding...
