Brewers head to spring looking to get over sting of 2014

MILWAUKEE (AP) It took a little while for Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse to get over the sting of the 2014 season. A 9-22 finish dropped Milwaukee out of first place and right out of playoff contention. The wait is over. It's time to look forward again for the Brewers with pitchers and catchers scheduled to report to spring training on Friday. ''Obviously, we were all pretty disappointed...

Brewers' Braun approaches true test after offseason surgery on thumb

MILWAUKEE -- Ryan Braun's annual appearance at Brewers On Deck carried a much different vibe this year than it did a year ago. National television cameras weren't following his every move, while the media horde wanting to interview him was significantly smaller than the mob scene that waited in 2014 for his first public comments since his suspension for use of performance-enhancing...

Fantasy Baseball Team Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

Even though the Brewers had more wins than losses in 2014 (82-80), they were on the outside looking in for the third-straight season. Milwaukee was 15th in runs scored (650 runs) and 17th in team batting average (.250) last year. It’s those middle-of-the-road numbers that can scare off fantasy baseball owners, but this team is filled with quality bats. ALSO SEE: TEAM PREVIEWS...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Catchers with Multiple Position Eligibility

Targeting players that carry multiple position eligibility in your fantasy baseball draft will provide your fake team with flexibility throughout the season. These players are typically helpful in formats that feature two catchers, a corner or middle infield slot and even with relief and starting pitchers. It’s important to note that different sites use different formulas to determine...

Rudy’s 2015 LABR Team

2015 draft season has begun (at least for me)! The 2015 15-team mixed LABR draft took place on Friday, February 10th – nearly 2 months before the start of the regular season. Almost 60 full days where I can read the player news and play injury bingo (Jonathan Lucroy – woo-hoo, not on my board!). Please, blog, may I have some more?

Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy to miss 4-6 weeks

Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy will miss 4-6 weeks due to a mild strain of his right hamstring. Lucroy began dealing with a irritated hamstring a few weeks ago when he upped his running. On the long side the problem could cause him to miss a portion of spring training but should have little effect on his ability to be ready to go for the Brewers season opener on April 6. Catcher...

Brewers All-Star catcher Lucroy (hamstring) out 4-6 weeks

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is expected to miss 4-6 weeks of spring training because of a mild right hamstring strain. Given the timeframe, Lucroy should be ready for Opening Day, barring a setback. Lucroy, a first-time All-Star in 2014, hit .301/.373/.465 with 13 homers and 69 RBI last season. He led the majors with 53 doubles. The 28-year-old Lucroy finished fourth...

Milwaukee Brewers: Lucroy should see more time at first base

Expect to see Lucroy at first a bit more this season. Since Prince Fielder left the Milwaukee Brewers after the 2011 season, first base has been a revolving door year after year with the team not able to find a consistent replacement. This year appears to be more of the same except their most consistent offensive talent will be thrown into the mix, Jonathan Lucroy. The platoon of...

Brewers to use Lucroy at first base against lefties this season

MILWAUKEE -- The speculation as to if the Milwaukee Brewers would acquire a platoon partner for Adam Lind began immediately after the club acquired the left-handed-hitting first baseman from the Toronto Blue Jays. But after watching how players who can only play one position hamstrung Milwaukee's bench last season, general manager Doug Melvin opted not to pursue another first baseman...

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...

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...
