Rolling Out the Barrel: Chasing an Up-Hill Dream

It’s February, folks, which means that the last baseball-less month is in our wake. Pitchers and catchers report two weeks from today, which means we’re just 14 days away from new pictures of some of our favorite ballplayers working out in the Arizona sun. New general manager David Stearns continues to reshape the franchise, making another major move on Saturday evening. While...

Which Brewer Had the Best Pitch in 2015?

Most fans of baseball seem to observe the game from a hitting-centric viewpoint. As Warren Spahn once quipped, “hitting is timing, pitching is upsetting timing.” This approach has never appealed to me — I think pitchers have a greater hand in the game than we credit them for. Aside from the fact that they succeed far more often than batters do (by a more than two-to-one ratio...

Rolling Out the Barrel: How can there be a tank if we’re shedding WAR?

Folks, Brewers On Deck weekend has arrived! All your favorite Brewers will be there, except for Jonathan Lucroy, which makes us all very upset, dangit. Who’s this joker think he is answering questions honestly? Matt Garza will be there, so if you’re still furious at him about the way last season ended, you can yell mean things at him (side note: definitely do not do that). A...

What a time to be alive

BP used to have KG, Parks, Rubio ect. Now we are reading about how front offices need to be like Darpa. *makes wanking motion until I die — Dylan Jones (@Dylanj85) January 28, 2016 This made me laugh, if only because of how much I and others here disliked Parks and especially KG back when they were writing for BP.

The Brewers Didn’t Take Advantage of Their Bullpen

Imagine that an old-time baseball player — from, say, a hundred years ago — has somehow traveled to the present. What characteristic of the modern game would shock them the most? Perhaps the increased emphasis on reaching base would come as a surprise, since batting average had dominated for most of baseball history. Or maybe the incredible velocity increase would blow their...

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers showed manager Ron Roenicke the door after a disappointing, MLB-worst  7-18 start that many blamed on poor luck. After replacing him with Craig Counsell, they played much more respectably, going 55-63 following Roenicke’s dismissal, right in the middle of the National League pack. So, could the Brewers end up holding their heads strong once this season is over? Preseason...

Erasmo Ramirez and Identifying Ideal Strike-Stealing Pitches

Talking to Erasmo Ramirez is refreshing. He always has a smile on his face. Life is fun for him — especially now. He’s having the best season of his career in Tampa Bay. It turns out that changing the use of his slider has been a big part of that success. And certain aspects of his slider may provide a roadmap for other pitchers that should make the same move. His best pitch...

Matt Garza blasts Brewers, refuses to move to bullpen

The Milwaukee Brewers recently decided to remove Matt Garza from their starting rotation for the remainder of the season, and the veteran right-hander is furious about it. After Garza allowed four earned runs and seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work on Saturday (a no-decision that the Brewers won 8-6), manager Craig Counsell revealed that the start would be the 31-year-old...

Chicago Cubs: Matt Garza trade officially a lost cause

It took over four years, but the Chicago Cubs officially lost the infamous Chris Archer trade. In January of 2011, former Cubs’ General Manager Jim Hendry made a trade that would lead to his eventual dishonorable discharge from the organization. In an act that screamed desperation to save his job, Hendry acquired SP Matt Garza, OF Fernando Perez, and RP Zach Rosscup from the...

Preview: Brewers vs. Reds

Although his struggles are part of why the Milwaukee Brewers are in the midst of a lost season, Matt Garza believes he still can get something out of the experience. Perhaps a matchup with a team that has gone 19 innings without scoring can help his cause. The right-hander hopes to avoid an MLB-high 15th defeat Saturday night when the host Brewers try to put some space between themselves...

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitching potential gives promise for future

Kyle Lohse can’t win, and will no longer be a Milwaukee Brewer in the near future. Matt Garza will be around for a while longer, but will likely be gone after 2018 at the very latest, and that’s if he meets the requirements for his vesting option in 2017. Before the end of the decade, however, the Brewers could have one of the elite rotations in all of baseball, assuming they...
