Brewers Friday: Milwaukee makes room for Nelson in rotation

MILWAUKEE -- After discussing the switch over the last couple of weeks, the Milwaukee Brewers officially moved Marco Estrada out of the starting rotation Thursday night to make way for top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson. What made the timing right for Nelson to come up now? The right-hander was simply pitching too well to stay in Triple-A. "I think it had both to do with him...

Justin Morneau Sure Would Look Great in a Brewers Uniform

In hindsight, it looks like the Milwaukee Brewers should have signed former Twin and Pirate Justin Morneau this past December.  Morneau signed with the Colorado Rockies on a very reasonable deal which guaranteed him about $13 million for two years with a mutual option for $9 million for 2016.  Morneau has been worth 1.9 bWAR in 2014, putting him about 1.5 bWAR above the cumulative...

Brewers head into All-Star break with big series vs. Cardinals

MILWAUKEE -- When a team has lost nine of its last 10 games, it is hard to build any series up to be much bigger than the last. It wouldn't matter if it were the worst team in baseball coming to Miller Park this weekend -- the Milwaukee Brewers need some sort of positive momentum heading into the All-Star break. That said, it's hard to not build this weekend's series...

Everything Is Not Awesome

The Brewers just got swept by the Philadelphia Phillies. It's hard to saw which one was more unbelievable: the one where they gave up seven runs in the eighth inning, the one where Lyle Overbay hit a grandslam and they blew a 5-1 lead in the SECOND inning or the one where Roberto Hernandez pitched a three hitter. I'm going to go with the Overbay one because I was there and...

Ex-teammate likely ratted out Ryan Braun to MLB in 2013

How was MLB able to get Ryan Braun to agree to a 65-game suspension in 2013 despite the absence of a failed drug test? There was so much evidence against Braun that the Brewers slugger decided to accept his fate. And where did MLB get all the evidence? Not only did they have Anthony Bosch […]

5 New Questions About the 2014 Brewers

Before the season started, I had 10 Questions About the 2014 Brewers.  It’s interesting in hindsight to see what I was concerned about at the time.  In many cases, the players I was unsure of have exceeded expectations – including Khris Davis, Aramis Ramirez, and Matt Garza.  Now that more than half of the 2014 season is ancient history, I thought it might be worth raising...

Brewers swept by Phillies in miserable finale

MILWAUKEE -- Matt Garza was on his way to letting the Milwaukee Brewers forget about their offensive woes for a day when things completely fell apart in the eighth inning. By the time the last-place Philadelphia Phillies had completed a four-game sweep of the Brewers with a 9-1 victory Thursday, it was hard to even remember Garza taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

Score One For the Pragmatists In Cardinal Nation

The Brewers are struggling. 3-7 in their past 10 and losers of 3 games in a row (including 6 of 7), this is the first true strife that Milwaukee has faced in 2014. Throughout April and then May and then June we thought this was coming… after all, the Brewers were inferior to the Cardinals (and some would say the Pirates and Reds), at least on paper. It never happened. The Brewers...
