Late triple dooms Brewers in 5-2 loss to Tigers

DETROIT -- Nick Castellanos arrived at third base, clapped his hands joyously and bent over to slap the dirt. Finally, the Detroit Tigers had broken through for a big inning. "I've been waiting for that all season," Castellanos said. "I needed it, the team needed it, the organization, the fans needed it. Everybody needed it." Castellanos hit a bases-loaded triple with two out in...

What could a Milwaukee Brewers fire sale look like?

This is not an overreaction piece. This is a reality piece. Even before the Milwaukee Brewers began the season 1-5, my predictions had them finishing fourth in the NL Central. Their starting offense is above average when its clicking, but there’s absolutely no depth. The same can be said for the starting rotation and bullpen. The Brewers have a chance to be really bad in 2015,...

The deal is unfair, but the Phillies should take Jonathan Broxton for Papelbon and be done with it

The deal is awful. Terrible. The Brewers want to trade the Phillies their overpriced, injury-prone reliever who did not even close for them last season and get in return someone who, while sometimes is a pain, is one of the top closers in the game of baseball. Spring Training opens...

As Major League Baseball's Winter Meetings got underway Monday at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and manager Ron Roenicke held their first formal press conferences of the meetings Monday evening.

Brewers playoff hopes dealt devastating blow by Pirates rally

While technically the Brewers are still alive in the race for the National League's second wild-card spot, the Pittsburgh Pirates may have ended any realistic chance Milwaukee had at the postseason Friday night. The decisive blow came from Russell Martin, as the Pittsburgh catcher launched a three-run home run off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth inning to give the Pirates a 3-2 lead...

How the Milwaukee Brewers turned from sizzling to fizzling

So, what the heck happened to the Brewers? There is no easy answer, yet also no reason to talk of this team in past tense. The Crew, for all their recent angst, are 1½ games out in the race for the second National League wild card. They have three games left against the Pirates, the team in current possession of the second spot. And their roster, with the post All-Star break additions...
