Brewers 3B Prospect Suspended for Something 119 MLB Players Did Legally Last Year

Earlier this week, Class A third baseman Nick Delmonico was hit with a 50-game suspension for amphetamine use.  If you have friends/coworkers who are Cubs fans, they probably made some hacky Braun-related joke about how there are cheaters everywhere in the Brewers’ organization.  You had to forgive them, because Cubs fans are so pitiable it’s hard to get truly mad at them about...

Maldonado provides offense with jolt against Rays ace Price

Baseball can be quite the puzzling game, rarely following any kind of patter that makes sense. If it did, the Milwaukee Brewers and their struggling offense would have been shut down by Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price. Instead, the Brewers used a four-RBI day from backup catcher Martin Maldonado to come away with a 5-0 victory over one of the best pitchers in baseball and temporarily...

A look back at Brewers' trades in July under Melvin

If the history of Doug Melvin's tenure as general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers leaves any indication, the odds of a trade happening before Thursday's non-waiver deadline are high. Melvin has made a July trade in nine of his 11 seasons with the Brewers, including seven of the last eight years. Some have been minor and a couple have been minor, but Melvin usually does something...

Bolstering the Brewers’ Bullpen

Baseball fans can discount nearly anything they hear at the trade deadline. Therefore, Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin’s suggestion that he might bolster his bullpen comes with enough grains of salt to fill the Dead Sea. Perhaps Melvin’s comments were merely an elaborate smokescreen designed to conceal his true intentions. Yet despite the unreliability of such statements, an upgrade...

Sixth inning leaves Brewers feeling snakebit against Tampa Bay

Kyle Lohse appeared to be on his way to overcoming a lackluster performance from his offense when the right-hander just couldn't get a break in the sixth inning. Following a borderline 3-2 pitch to Evan Longoria that was called a ball by home-plate umpire Bob Davidson to load the bases with two outs, James Loney dumped a bloop single into center to plate a pair of runs. That...
