Angels Mike Trout joins elite company

By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Staff Reporter - Mike Trout is going to finish the year first in fWAR again - he's at 7.8 right now, with #2 being far behind at 6.2 (Jonathan Lucroy). For those who prefer rWAR, he's also at 7.8 but Donaldson is much closer at 7.3, so it isn't quite a lock but it is close.Anyhow, this will be the third year in a row that Trout has...

Cardinals give away runs, give away bases and, ultimately, give away game

ST. LOUIS -- Getting beat is bad enough. Giving away a game is even worse, especially in September.  But the Cardinals handed the Brewers enough Tuesday night to allow them to take a 3-2 victory in 12 innings at Busch Stadium. Here's how: The Cardinals led 2-1 in the ninth when Trevor Rosenthal walked the leadoff batter, Jonathan Lucroy, and he came around to score the tying...

The Tortoise and the Hare: NL Central Edition

You might be familiar with one of Aesop’s Fables, entitled “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Either way, let’s take a journey, if you will, back to a magical time that Milwaukee Brewers fans called “June.” At the end of that mysterious, wonderful month, the Brewers held a 6.5 game lead in the National League Central, after taking three of four in a midseason series with the...

The Entirety of the Jonathan Lucroy MVP Argument

Okay, I’ll grant that now isn’t the best time to talk about the National League MVP Award, with just weeks to go in a closely competitive regular season. I’ll grant that now isn’t the best time to talk about a Brewer winning the NL MVP Award, with the team in a bit of a slide […]

The Decline and Fall of the Milwaukee Brewers

It’s taken until September, but the Brewers are who we thought they were… and it’s not pretty. Milwaukee has lost 6 games in a row at just about the worst time possible. With only a month to go, instead of looking in the mirror, Milwaukee is looking up at an NL Central leader for the first time all year. Before the season started, we thought that the Central would be a three...

Game 128: Pirates 8 Brewers 3

When Jeff Locke took the mound in the bottom of the first, walked Jonathan Lucroy, and served up a two-run homer to Ryan Braun on a silver platter,  I got a sinking feeling in my stomach. I’m sure I wasn’t alone on that front; we’ve all seen that movie before. Locke’s control looked awfully iffy out of the gate, the Pirates’ offense hasn’t really clicked since Neil Walker...

Jonathan Lucroy Becoming the New Face of the Milwaukee Brewers

Thanks to his breakout 2014 season, Jonathan Lucroy is quickly supplanting Ryan Braun as the face of the Milwaukee Brewers franchise. Before his overturned positive PED test in 2012 and suspension as a result of the Biogenesis scandal last year, it would’ve been unimaginable that anybody would pass Braun as the franchise’s most valuable player. After all, Braun – who signed...

Brewers 7, Dodgers 2: A Game That Was Over Before It Started

You know, after Dan Haren was surprisingly decent his last two times out, you had to wonder when the other shoe was going to drop. That’s what happened today, as Haren lasted all of three innings, allowing six runs — only three earned, thanks to Adrian Gonzalez‘ error — and getting through exactly zero of them unscathed. The second batter of the game, Jonathan Lucroy, homered...

Feisty base running sometimes causes outs, but Brewers won't change

MILWAUKEE -- Already in scoring position with two outs and Jonathan Lucroy at the plate, Carlos Gomez left many scratching their heads Saturday when he was caught stealing third base to end the inning. With one of his top run producers at the plate and Gomez having the ability to score from second base on the vast majority of base hits, did manager Ron Roenicke think about taking...
