Mike Schmidt: Today's hitters don't want much help

I just returned from Hall of Fame induction weekend, where I find that my cronies and I are slowly becoming the older generation of the membership. Most of us are in our 60s, having made our mark on the game in the late 1970s and `80s. Like any club or fraternity, the Hall's membership has cliques, groups of guys that form around things like ethnic background, competitive era...

Eddie Murray and the 4th of July

It was 1979 … my uncle was taking me to my first Twins game. It was also the first time I truly found a favorite player. The bad thing for my uncle is that his name was Eddie Murray. Murray went 3-5 with three homers and drove in seven RBI that day. In 1983, my uncle promised to take me to a bunch of games because the previous year I’d broken my leg and wasn’t able to play...

Brewers match Yount-era team by remaining unbeaten away from home

It's been 27 years since the Milwaukee Brewers began a season with this much success on the road. After Wednesday night's 9-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, the Brewers are 5-0 away from home for the first time since 1987. It was another relatively decisive win for Milwaukee, too. Though the game was tied at 4 after seven innings, the Brewers added three runs in...

Pregame 4: Baltimore Orioles at Detroit Tigers

It was a dark and rainy afternoon, and the Tigers continued their winning ways, cruising to a 10-4 victory over Baltimore. The highlight of the game of course was Miguel Cabrera’s 2-run home run in the 8th inning, which also just happened to be his 2,000th career hit. Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Mel Ott, Joe Medwick, Jimmie Foxx, Robin Yount, and Alex Rodriguez. That’s the short...

Yount springs into action, imparts wisdom on Brewers in spring training

PHOENIX -- In 2008, Brewers outfielder Logan Schafer was invited to a pre-draft workout at Miller Park along with about 60 other prospects the team was considering. Each prospect was given a number for identification and by the luck of the draw, Schafer was handed a Brewers shirt with "19" on it. "I looked at that shirt with number 19 and 'Brewers' and thought...

Former Brewers outfielder Geoff Jenkins was in uniform Sunday to help work with the team's outfielders, while Hall of Famer Robin Yount will come down later in camp. There...

Sculpting the Brewers’ Mount Rushmore

(Image: Artist Eduardo Kobra's "Mount Rushmore Mural" in L.A. via designboom.com) I saw a post about a hypothetical “Mount Rushmore” of Golden State Warriors players via the blog Golden State of Mind, and apparently that discussion was brought on by some really interesting comments by the narcissistic but undeniably great LeBron James of the Miami Heat.  James...

Memorable Mets: Catcher John Stearns Was One Tough “Dude”

In the 1973 Amateur Draft, right after the Texas Rangers selected the highly regarded and ultimately ill-fated David Clyde with the first pick, the Phillies used the second selection to take catcher John Stearns out of the University of Colorado. The next two picks both turned out to be hall-of-famers, Robin Yount and Dave Winfield. Since Bob Boone was just starting what would turn...

Brian Kenny on Dale Murphy

I remember clearly there was talk of 1999 being the greatest Induction class since initial Hall of Fame votes back in the late 1930’s: George Brett, Robin Yount, Nolan Ryan, Carlton Fisk and Dale Murphy.  The writers, though, made Fisk wait another year, and passed on Murphy for 15. Murphy's career did not have the length preferred by the Hall voters.  Most inductees...

Chinooks Will Reel You In, Given the Chance

  I recently attended a Lakeshore Chinooks game for the first time with my dad and my friend Kevin.  In short, I had a great time and you should check it out.  It’s a short drive from Milwaukee, up at Kapco Park on the Concordia University campus.  It’s right near the lake so you kind of get that Wrigley feel with the winds.    The Chinooks are a recent addition...

The Longest Game

One of my favorite things about baseball is that you never know what could happen on a given night. You could see a perfect game, a 15-14 slugfest, an inside-the-park home run, or other feats too numerous to list here. You could even see an extra-inning marathon that would go into the record book for all time. On Tuesday, May 8, 1984, that is exactly what the Milwaukee Brewers and...
