JONATHAN LUCROY NEWS

LUUUUUUC, I’m Not Your Sponsor!

(Getty Images) Last year on this very date I posted proudly regarding The Brewers Bar’s sponsorship of the player pages of current Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy and former Brewer Charlie Moore on Baseball-Reference.com. A year ago the prospect that Lucroy would go unsponsored on B-Ref when all that was required was $60 was too much to bear. Well, times have changed… Lucroy...

Best to Keep Sports and Politics Separate

I don’t know how to quantify this, but I’ve long assumed Jonathan Lucroy is the most popular Brewer.  Sure, Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez were voted into the All-Star Game last year, but I sense that Lucroy has broader appeal.  If there were a tool for measuring crush/man-crush intensity among Milwaukee baseball fans, I bet Lucroy would bury the needle.  Not only has Lucroy...

Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy to attend Obama's State of the Union address

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is making an unexpected road trip to Washington. It has nothing to do with playing the Nationals. It's not often that a ballplayer gets to attend a State of the Union address to Congress as the guest of a U.S. senator. So the All-Star accepted an invitation from the office of Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin to watch President Barack Obama's...

Matt Garza Understands His Catchers

One of the things you’re supposed to learn about in a literature class is subtext. Subtext isn’t exactly a “hidden meaning,” but it’s the unspoken thematic uncurrent of a particular narrative or conversation. While the following will appear to be another post in a long line of posts about Jonathan Lucroy’s pitch framing (It is!), […]

Is Catcher Pitch Framing Fully Appreciated Yet?

Last night when I was watching the Gold Glove awards being announced, I started thinking about how the awards were doing a much better job this year of going to people with actual good defense. That is opposed to the past trend of giving out an award because of a good offensive season, or highlight reel plays that would be routine plays by better defenders. Basically, there weren’t...

Brewers shut out in Gold Glove awards

After Carlos Gomez snapped the franchise's 31-year drought last season, the Milwaukee Brewers were shut out of the Gold Glove awards in 2014. Finalists Jonathan Lucroy and Gerardo Parra were not announced as Gold Glove winners during an hour-long special aired Tuesday evening on ESPN2. Despite missing nearly two months with a thumb injury, St. Louis' Yadier Molina won the Gold Glove...

Lucroy sets MLB record for doubles by catcher

MILWAUKEE -- It may have taken him longer than he had hoped it would, but Jonathan Lucroy made history at Miller Park on Saturday night. A run-scoring double off Chicago Cubs left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada in the fifth inning was Lucroy's 46th two-bagger as a catcher this season, breaking Ivan Rodriguez's major-league record for doubles in a season by a backstop. Lucroy now has 53 doubles...

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 […]

Jonathan Lucroy, Catcher Framing, and the NL MVP

Three years ago, the BBWAA opened their doors to FanGraphs; currently, four of our writers are members, including David Laurila, Eno Sarris, Carson Cistulli, and myself. Having that access has allowed David and Eno to do really interesting work in combining data with comments from the players, including Eno’s piece on Jacob deGrom from this […]

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...
