There is one trade that stands above the rest however, easily the Cubs trade of the decade. Revisiting the Jake Arrieta Trade During...

Matt Garza Understands His Catchers

One of the things you’re supposed to learn about in a literature class is subtext. Subtext isn’t exactly a “hidden meaning,” but it’s the unspoken thematic uncurrent of a particular narrative or conversation. While the following will appear to be another post in a long line of posts about Jonathan Lucroy’s pitch framing (It is!), […]

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...

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...

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...

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...

RHP Matt Garza nearing return to Brewers' rotation

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...

Mike Fiers Should Stay In The Brewers’ Rotation

With Matt Garza slated to return to the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation in the not too distant future, manager Ron Roenicke will have to decide whether to keep Mike Fiers or Jimmy Nelson as a starter for the stretch run in September. While decisions like these can leave a manager tossing and turning at night, the choice Roenicke must make upon Garza’s return is quite clear...

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 for...

What Can We Make of Mike Fiers?

If you've been paying any attention to the Milwaukee Brewers lately, you might have noticed a name you don't generally see when check the box scores: Mike Fiers. 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. Yet if he continues to pitch similarly to how he has in...

Deal for Matt Garza Looking Good for Brewers

The contracts given to Ubaldo Jimenez, Ricky Nolasco and Matt Garza by the Orioles, Twins and Brewers, respectively, were remarkably similar. Each called for at least four years and roughly $12.5 million per year, then the going rate for what the offseason market deemed to be middle-tier but still highly valuable starters.
