Which Brewer Had the Worst Pitch in 2015?

Which Brewer Had the Best Pitch in 2015?

Finding Joy in a Losing Season

In most sports losing sucks. It’s a dreadful experience for a fan. But it is never worse, never more disheartening than in baseball. In football, even when you’re the 2008 Detroit Lions and your team loses all of its games, that event only happens once a week. In hockey or basketball, the incident only occurs a few times a week. In baseball, the agony of defeat happens “every…...

Brewers 2016 All-Fan Giveaways: Will We Ever Reach Bobblehead Overload?

On Monday, the Brewers announced their 2016 All-Fan Giveaway schedule, and there was much rejoicing (probably).  There will be seven bobblehead Sundays, including the likenesses of Craig Counsell, Ryan Braun, Jimmy Nelson, Greg Vaughn, and the now traditional BobbleHank – although this one will bark.  The “Free-Shirt Friday” promotion returns for a third year, with fans voting...
