WATCH: Bryce Harper leaps the wall for the catch

Overshadowed by his Willie Mays Hayes slide, Washington Nationals’ outfielder Bryce Harper made a Sportscenter Top 10 caliber grab in foul territory. Harper tracked down a foul ball off the bat of Milwaukee Brewers’ Lyle Overbay in the seventh inning, leaping over the wall to grab the ball before it fell in the stands.

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. How could they not? The Brewers entered with a 44-10 record when scoring four or more runs and had dropped just three games all season when they had scored five...

Phillies Bats Awaken, Bail Out Kendrick, Beat Brew Crew 9-7

The Phillies went down 5-1 in the first inning to the Brewers via a Scooter Gennett homer and a Lyle Overbay grand slam off of Kyle Kendrick. But the Phillies offense remained patient, with eight out of the first nine hitters reaching base in the second inning to take a 6-5 lead. Domonic Brown would hit a solo homer, his sixth, in the third inning to extend the lead to 7-5 and would...

Overbay leads Brewers in rally over Pirates

Garza (4-4) allowed five walks and six hits while striking out one, yet limited the Pirates to three runs a day after they scored...

Key Ingredients: Lyle Overbay at the Bat

One person influential to the Brewers’ strong start was not even alive when the season began. When Eddie Overbay was born on April 17, his father, Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay, was hitting just .100 with a .480 OPS. However, since being reinstated from the paternity list, the elder Overbay has gone on a tear. The 37-year-old Washington native has compiled a six-game hit streak...

Tex is the swizzle that stirs the drink

Only $15.99 at Rakuten.com!Last night, Mark Teixeira's home run saved a game that last year - or last week - we probably would have lost. No disrespect to Lyle Overbay, the most selfless lug nut of the 2013 scrap heap, or the recent Mad-Libs 1B collection of Johnson/Cervelli/Beltran/Sizemore, but the '14 Evils will live or die with Teixeira, and all the Vidals, Dellins and...

Lyle Overbay Takes Paternity Leave Without Incident (Plus Mostly-Unrelated Thoughts About Watching Childbirth) ☆

Yesterday, Lyle Overbay and his wife welcomed their fifth (!) child into the world.  Overbay took paternity leave, paving the way for Elian Herrera to be called up and enjoy the sights and sounds of Pittsburgh for a few days.  Overbay’s absence from the team has been met with no drama whatsoever as far as I can tell.  Funny, it seems like just a few weeks ago there was a mini...

MILWAUKEE -- Two weeks into the regular season, Ron Roenicke is still waiting for a clear answer to emerge at first base and second base. Until then, he'll continue to split up the playing time.  Mark Reynolds appeared to be pulling away after starting seven consecutive games at first base, but Lyle Overbay got the call Sunday and Monday. Early on, Reynolds has provided the...
