What Could Have Been: Chris Archer and the Chicago Cubs

When Jim Hendry traded for Matt Garza in 2011, he did so thinking that the addition of a playoff-tested arm would be what finally got the Chicago Cubs past the NLDS, perhaps even to a World Series. The Tampa Bay Rays, meanwhile, were simply doing what they did best. They were trading an ace pitcher at his maximum trade value, and building a constant flow of young talent for years...

With Garza likely out longer than expected, Brewers staff will be tested

Maybe it was wishful thinking, but the possibility of right-hander Matt Garza returning to the Milwaukee Brewers after the minimum 15-day stay on the disabled list seemed too good to be true. As it turns out, it was an unrealistic expectation. Garza has yet to throw a baseball since a strained left oblique landed him on the disabled list on Aug. 5, retroactive to his outing on...

Cardinals End Up Winning The Weekend

Sometimes you get the breaks, sometimes the breaks get you. For six innings on Sunday afternoon, Matt Garza was making the Cardinals look even worse than the toothless offense we’ve watched most of 2014. It was cold. And it was clinical. When the Brewers took the field in the bottom of the 7th, Garza (whose pitch count was at 71) was absent. In his place Zach Duke, who promptly...

Sunday's win full of key developments as race heats up in NL Central

ST. LOUIS -- Come the end of September, be sure to remember what happened Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium.

Brewers monthly recap: July

  July record: 9-16 Andrew Gruman's player of the month: RF Ryan Braun (.277, 3 HR, 5 2B, 2 3B, 15 RBI in 22 games) It wasn't a very good month offensively for the Brewers, as Braun was just one of two regulars to hit over .250 and the only one over .270. Braun was hitting .343 for the month on July 26, but Milwaukee's right fielder is currently mired in an 0-for-16...

Brewers batters continue to struggle versus Tampa Bay

The Brewers are in a severe offensive funk and aren't winning because of it. For the third straight game, Milwaukee wasted a strong performance from its starting pitcher by providing little offensive support.
