Firing a Manager Brings Out the Worst in (Some) Fans

I’m generally not a fan of firing managers/coaches in any sport.  I’m skeptical that “shaking things up” is the best way to turn around a losing team…but it certainly seems to be a common practice, so what the hell do I know?  I’m not sure what Ron Roenicke could have done to stop Kyle Lohse from giving up homers in every start, or to get Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez...

Preview: Brewers at Cubs

The Milwaukee Brewers leaned heavily on the long ball in each of their past few wins, which have been hard to come by for baseball's last-place club. The Brewers will likely need to bring a different offensive strategy Friday against the Chicago Cubs and stingy left-hander Jon Lester. Although their record still ranks as the worst by a National League team through 22 games since...

Braun: 'We show up every day optimistic'

  The Brewers are off to a horrendous start. No matter how you look at it, the month of April has not been kind to the Brewers. Not only do the losses continue to pile up, but the team has been hit with injuries as well. Nothing seems to be going right in Milwaukee, but that doesn't mean the team has lost hope or given up on the season. “I think every day that we lose, we're surprised...

Milwaukee Brewers playing like it’s still September 2014

The horrific month of September 2014 was one Brewers fans were hoping to put behind them and never think about again. Unfortunately, the 2015 Brewers are playing like it’s still September. In particular, the offense is simply hopeless. The lineup that’s supposedly built for power has amassed a league-worst three home runs, and the team batting average sits at a depressing .223...

Brewers Boosting Doubters Early

Before the season started, there was a lot of fiery talk from the Brewers brass.  They were going to build on their “150 days” of first-place fortitude, dadgummit, they were going to use the disappointment of 2014’s conclusion to figure things out successfully in 2015.  And hopefully they’d have a good start to the season again. D’oh. After losing heartlessly 4-0 to the...
