Which Brewers Players are “That Guy Who Always Kills Us” for Opposing Teams?

At the start of the Brewers’ four-game series in Philadelphia, one of the storylines highlighted by the FSWisconsin team was that Ryan Braun loves to hit in Citizens Bank Park.  It’s no surprise why – after Tuesday’s game, Braun’s slash line was a cool .438/.486/.833 at the home of the Phillies.  No wonder Philadelphia fans were so vociferous last year when Braun hit...

He just...

Fantasy Roundup: Cargo Crushing

Carlos Gonzalez has had trouble staying healthy throughout his career, but his problems in 2014 and 2015 have been a result of production, not health (at least on the surface). However, he’s been heating up recently, raising his average from .208 to .240 since May 27. This weekend, Gonzalez hit his first two home runs at Coors Field and has started to make those who bought low...

Milwaukee Brewers: Stars that must stay

It’s unfortunate but true: the Brewers are not contending this year. What this disastrous campaign has turned into is an audition for current minor leaguers. While that’s all well and good, a playoff-caliber team needs to have proven stars at the core, not just a ragtag bunch of youngsters. The Brewers are a small market team, and they don’t have the funds or allure that other...

Moves are being made at the upper levels such as manager Ron Roenicke getting the boot this week. He had an abysmal record ending the 2014 campaign and then started 2015 with a 7-18 record before getting...
