Milwaukee Brewers Face Cincinnati Reds In Most and Least Expensive Games Of July

The Milwaukee Brewers will be a team to watch as baseball steps into July, but it won’t be because of their play on the field. At 32-48, Milwaukee is 20.5 games back of the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central division, while also being considerably back of an NL Wild Card berth as well. The reason to watch the Brewers is to see how they can impact other rosters around...

Which Brewers Players are “That Guy Who Always Kills Us” for Opposing Teams?

At the start of the Brewers’ four-game series in Philadelphia, one of the storylines highlighted by the FSWisconsin team was that Ryan Braun loves to hit in Citizens Bank Park.  It’s no surprise why – after Tuesday’s game, Braun’s slash line was a cool .438/.486/.833 at the home of the Phillies.  No wonder Philadelphia fans were so vociferous last year when Braun hit...

Can a Woman Play in MLB? (If She Does, She Won’t Need Us To Stick Up For Her)

If you watch the Brewers on TV, you’ve no doubt noticed the following AT&T U-verse ad that asks, “When the first woman pitches in the majors, where will you be?” The ad has been in heavy rotation lately, I suspect it runs at least half a dozen times during game broadcasts.  When you see an ad over and over, you start asking questions about the fictional universe the ad...

Default Position: Miller Park Features Indoor Baseball

(Photo: County Stadium had lots of bad-weather days, but the Brewers now elect to remove the outside world entirely for most games on the schedule.) On the Brewers’ website the team says it closes Miller Park’s roof unless it’s expected to be above 60 degrees for the duration of the game. Broadcaster Brian Anderson alluded to a magic number of 65 degrees at the beginning of...

Brewers Continue Nine-Game Road Trip Against Twins, Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers enter the weekend three games into their current nine-game road trip. Currently in last place of the National League Central division, the Brewers need to start piling up some wins to climb back into the playoff race. Milwaukee lost two out of three to the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the week, after only scoring five runs over three games...

Slumping Brewers Still Returning Value With Solid Ticket Prices

Things haven’t gone according to plan for the Milwaukee Brewers, who enter June with the worst record in Major League Baseball. Ryan Braun has rebounded from a slow start to try to ignite the Brew Crew’s offense, but the performance just hasn’t been there from an overall perspective (just 198 runs scored). Milwaukee has also been let down by shaky pitching and could be looking...

Selig Experience Message: Seeking Corporate Welfare is Heroic

The multimedia Selig Experience opened at Miller Park on Friday, the latest and most attention-demanding measure to perpetually honor the former Brewers team owner and MLB commissioner.  Putting a statue and a plaque outside the stadium were hardly enough – only a permanent shrine with state-of-the-art 3D hologram technology is a fitting tribute to Selig.  After all, without...

Memorial Day Thought: Too Much Easy Patriotism at MLB Games?

Memorial Day is a time when Americans are supposed to honor the sacrifices of the U.S. military.  We all pay our respects differently, and there’s no right or wrong way to express gratitude for fallen soldiers and those who are currently serving.  If you go to a fair number of baseball games, you’ve probably noticed that MLB teams pay their respects in a number of ways.  For...

Okay…this one other thing bothers me (please know this is in good fun, I hope–since it is supposed to be funny, right?)

It is highly possible someone has already pointed this out, and, I do not want to say that shots are being fired…however, I am a drummer, and have very dramatic, abrupt timing applied to most things that are experienced by me. Or, something. I am getting the writing rust off. I just wanted to make sure I covered every base and then used a blatant example of overuse of a special...

Keep Wearing Your Brewers Gear / Watch Most of Every Game…a personal message from the heart

…and, this personal message is on a facebook page, because that is how primitive I happen to just be, just by the way. Just…whatever. [Again, here it is]  Also, turn off the HD (it will be activated when you play it, so, just hit “HD” to make the HD icon look more bright/bold, meaning HD is turned off. Terrible video, though, anyhow. So, it will not help that much to switch...

Scooter Gennett Demoted from Kids Club?

With Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett’s recent demotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the diminutive player also may have lost his place as the face of the team’s “Kids Club.” Earlier this month an email was sent out advertising the benefits of the Kids Club, which does have its merits to be sure.  It’s interesting, though, that after being prominently featured in...

Open the Roof, Brewers

I’ve railed against the excessive closing of Miller Park’s roof in the past, and unfortunately I have cause to do so again. I’ll admit it: I just don’t get it. I was reminded recently of a conversation I had with a fellow Brewers fan at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium years ago during which we both lamented the fact that Miller Park isn’t a “proper” ballpark because...

Sardinas Callup First Official Glimpse into Gallardo Trade

A report from Todd Rosiak of the Journal Sentinel details how shortstop Luis Sardinas will be called up from the minor leagues to replace Jean Segura, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a finger injury. Obviously yet another injury to a starting player is bad news for the Brewers, who just can’t seem to keep their projected starters on the field, among other issues holding the...

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...
