Morneau staying in Colorado after Rockies turn down Brewers' offer

The first-place Milwaukee Brewers won the claim on Justin Morneau, the current NL batting average leader, but were unable to acquire him. The Brewers made an offer of unknown players to the Rockies for Morneau after getting the claim, but Colorado apparently didn't believe it was good value for Morneau. So he is staying in Colorado. The Brewers have been using Lyle Overbay...

First rate job: Reynolds, Overbay have upgraded Brewers at first base

The Milwaukee Brewers were historically bad at first base in 2013. Seven different players combined to provide little at the plate and in the field, leaving general manager Doug Melvin looking to improve at the position in the offseason. After weighing many options, Melvin brought Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay in on minor-league deals to compete with Juan Francisco. Reynolds and...

Justin Morneau Sure Would Look Great in a Brewers Uniform

In hindsight, it looks like the Milwaukee Brewers should have signed former Twin and Pirate Justin Morneau this past December.  Morneau signed with the Colorado Rockies on a very reasonable deal which guaranteed him about $13 million for two years with a mutual option for $9 million for 2016.  Morneau has been worth 1.9 bWAR in 2014, putting him about 1.5 bWAR above the cumulative...

Everything Is Not Awesome

The Brewers just got swept by the Philadelphia Phillies. It's hard to saw which one was more unbelievable: the one where they gave up seven runs in the eighth inning, the one where Lyle Overbay hit a grandslam and they blew a 5-1 lead in the SECOND inning or the one where Roberto Hernandez pitched a three hitter. I'm going to go with the Overbay one because I was there and...

5 New Questions About the 2014 Brewers

Before the season started, I had 10 Questions About the 2014 Brewers.  It’s interesting in hindsight to see what I was concerned about at the time.  In many cases, the players I was unsure of have exceeded expectations – including Khris Davis, Aramis Ramirez, and Matt Garza.  Now that more than half of the 2014 season is ancient history, I thought it might be worth raising...

Peralta roughed up in Brewers' loss

MILWAUKEE -- After Lyle Overbay connected for a first-inning grand slam to allow a struggling offense to breathe a bit with a 5-1 lead, the Milwaukee Brewers had to be feeling pretty good about their chances Tuesday night.
