2014 Fantasy Baseball: Revisiting Rankings

Preseason rankings are always fun. And futile. Everything a ranker thinks he know, seems to go out the window soon after the first pitch of the season is thrown. Sure, any ranker will get some right. And they’ll undoubtedly get some wrong that seem stupid in retrospect. As humans we see what we wish to see. Oh, this guy has a platoon split? He’ll get it figured out. This dude...

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...

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.
