Minus Andrew Friedman, Rays' vision still lives with Matt Silverman

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- In his first day as the Tampa Bay Rays' president of baseball operations, Matt Silverman spent about 10 hours with his head pressed against a phone. His ear hurt. His elbow turned sore. On Tuesday, he had received a taste of his new professional life as the man tabbed to take over baseball operations after Andrew Friedman. Silverman's former colleague...

Fiers pleased with performance, but must prove self again next spring

MILWAUKEE -- When Mike Fiers reported to Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix for spring training last February, his career was hanging in the balance. Fiers was so much of a forgotten man in the organization that he pitched just two innings for the Milwaukee Brewers in spring training before he was assigned to minor-league camp in early March. Emotionally and physically, Fiers had...

Brewers Could Improve Focus by Limiting Costume Use

First off, this article is a bit facetious. If we’re cheering for laundry, it shouldn’t really matter the color or design of the threads. But perhaps the Milwaukee Brewers could better forge an identity through the cataclysm of 2014 by limiting the number of alternate, nostalgic or just plain bizarre uniform options at their disposal in future seasons. If you look at the Detroit...

Matt Garza: if you think I was trying to hit McCutchen, “you’re just an idiot”

The way things have gone for the Milwaukee Brewers, even when they win a game they have to survive controversy. With the bullpen doing yeoman duty after starter Matt Garza was ejected in the fifth inning for hitting Pittsburgh star Andrew McCutchen a second time with a pitch, the Brewers finally pushed across a run in the ninth inning Saturday night at PNC Park to nip the Pirates...

One last game against the Brewers

This is how it is: with a win today, the Pirates will have a 4 1/2 game lead on the Brewers with eight games left on the schedule. Their magic number will be three. They shouldn’t have any trouble winning three games against the Braves and Reds. If they lose, they’ll have a 2 1/2 game lead with eight games left. I think that should be enough, frankly, but it will lead to some...

Morning Report: Expect the Hits to Keep Coming

If you keep watching the Pirates for the next few years, you should expect the hits to keep coming. I’m talking about the amount of batters being hit during Pirates’ games and it’s mostly due to the philosophy of pitching inside the organization preaches in the minors. With Andrew McCutchen getting hit twice by Matt Garza on Saturday night, now is a time to look back at a subject...

Brewers secure white-knuckle win, maintain playoff pulse

From here on out, every game is a must-win for the Milwaukee Brewers. So when starter Matt Garza was ejected by home-plate umpire Marty Foster in the fifth inning of a scoreless game for hitting Andrew McCutchen on a 1-2 pitch after both benches had previously been warned, the Brewers had to be wondering what else could go wrong. But six relievers helped Milwaukee overcome Garza...

Andrew McCutchen hit twice in loss against Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers won today 1-0 by a 9th inning sacrifice fly from Logan Schafer, and Edinson Volquez pitched seven scoreless, but both storylines were out shined by Andrew McCutchen getting hit by pitches twice from Matt Garza. The first came in the 3rd inning and the 2nd came in the 5th, resulting in Garza being tossed from the game. Clint Hurdle wasn’t sure of the intent...

Milwaukee Brewers keep pace in Wild Card

A day after mustering only two hits, the Milwaukee Brewers offense burst forth today in a relentless offensive assault on the Cincinnati Reds, winning 9-2 and remaining a game and a half behind the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Wild Card. The Brewers collected 15 hits and used a five-run seventh inning that was spearheaded by September call-up Matt Clark‘s three-run home run to ensure...

Garza’s Arm Cannot Cash a Check His Mouth Wrote

We all know what happened with Matt Garza. After a failed contract negotiation (which might have only been for show), the Chicago Cubs traded Garza to the Texas Rangers for Mike Olt, Neil Ramirez, C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm. After a failed playoff run, Garza hit free agency and eventually signed with the Milwaukee Brewers. Mid Spring Training, Garza was asked his thoughts on facing...

Brewers Injury Update: Matt Garza activated from DL

With MLB rosters expanding to as many as 40 men, there is now little need for teams to use the disabled list for the remainder of the season.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Milwaukee right-hander Matt Garza pitched a simulated game in what likely was his final test before returning from the disabled list to the Brewers' rotation next week. As long as Garza comes through the outing without further problems when he reports to AT&T Park on Saturday, he could start as soon as Thursday at home against St. Louis. Manager Ron Roenicke...

One Man’s Trash: Starting Fiers

This week's hot add was Mike Fiers (+62%). The Brewers hurler has posted a 9.5 K/9 and a 1.8 BB/9 since filling in for Matt Garza in the Milwaukee rotation. The strikeouts are no fluke, as he posted a K/9 of 11.4 in Triple-A this season. While his FIP is a run higher than his current ERA and Steamer is projecting a 3.60 ERA from this point forward, Fiers remains a great pickup...

The 29-year-old is a starting pitcher in the organization and was taken in the 22nd round of the 2009 amateur draft. Suffice it to say, he is not a household name.
