Andrew Gruman's Oct. 21 Brewers mailbag

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions for our inaugural Milwaukee Brewers mailbag. The response was overwhelming, so I tried to answer the questions that were most frequently asked. Fans were most interested in the first-base situation, but other areas covered are the future of Carlos Gomez, the looming decision to bring back Yovani Gallardo, when to expect a new hitting coach...

AFL: Pirates Prospects Face Off Against Wei-Chung Wang

On Friday night in the Arizona Fall League, Scottsdale had Josh Bell, Dan Gamache and Elias Diaz batting 5-6-7 in the lineup.

Brewers Rumors: Aramis Ramirez wants to remain a Brewer

Without Aramis Ramirez, the Milwaukee Brewers would go from third base being a team strength to a major weakness.  Ramirez has proven throughout his time in Milwaukee and his entire career in the National League Central that he can be a big time run producer. But as both he and the team enter the offseason, things could get interesting. #456468418 / gettyimages.com Ramirez has...

Brewers Survey Questions on Team Direction More Interesting Than Answers

Yesterday, Noah Jarosh at Brew Crew Ball alerted us to a survey the Brewers sent to select fans on the team’s direction.  It’s not clear how fans were chosen to take the survey, but if you didn’t get it the entire thing can be read at the BCB post.  Although I assume my opinion doesn’t count for much in any area of life, it would have been nice to be one of the chosen. ...

Brewers Make Right Call By Retaining Ron Roenicke

Last Friday, Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin announced that Ron Roenicke will return to manage the team in 2015. It ended nearly two weeks of speculation about Roenicke’s job security following an astonishing September collapse by the Brewers. Despite holding the lead in the NL Central for a total of 150 days throughout the year, Milwaukee lost 22 of its final 31...

Farewell My Love. Farewell Rickie Weeks.

When the Brewers played their last game of 2014 it was also the last game that Rickie Weeks will play for the Brewers. To some this will be good riddance. To others it's been a long time coming. To me? It's the end of an era. Rickie Weeks has been my favorite Brewers since before he was a Brewer. It was Rickie Weeks being drafted number two overall that brought the Brewers...

Brewers Rumors: Adam LaRoche could head to Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers finished the 2014 season with a disappointing 82-80 record after a hot start the first few months of the season. A mediocre offense that ranked 15th in the Major Leagues in runs scored contributed to the downfall as the season progressed. One player who would provide a boost to the offense next season would be free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche, who likely...

The Back to School Brewers

Well, it's that time of year again; time for the kids to go back to school. Football starts, fall comes and the kids go back to class. As a parent, I know how hard this can be. You not only have to go to crappy school concerts, help your kid with their stupid homework and get weird emails about Scott Walker from your kid's teacher, but you also lose out on a lot of important...

Milwaukee Brewers: Roenicke remains

I was really impressed with how Mark Attanasio and Doug Melvin expressed frustration at the end of the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2014 season. It seemed like these guys, especially Attanasio, were going to clean house and find out which players and coaches want to win most. At the time, I expected a veritable purge of the coaching staff. Instead, what Brewers fans and I got was the retention...

Brewers Injury Update: Ryan Braun feels "pretty good" after BP

Ryan Braun's thumb was a topic conversation throughout the entire 2014 season, but it appears that in 2015 both he and the Milwaukee Brewers may finally be able to move past the lingering injury.  Team beat writer Adam McCalvy is reporting that Braun took BP yesterday for the first time since his thumb procedure and felt "pretty good," after. Ryan Braun took BP yesterday...

Brewers 2014 Season in Review

What a season! So much drama! So much excitement! So much baseball! So much ********** and despair! I never felt great about the season. Those first couple months were pretty cool, but it never felt quite right. There was just something.. off. It felt like the things that went right went a little too right, if that makes sense. They were good, but deep down I think that everyone...

SUNDAY FUNDAY: More Songs About Brewers And Yuni

I've been holding this one in my back pocket until former Brewers pop-up machine Yuniesky Betancourt tricked another team into signing him or, worse yet, was taken back by the Brewers. Fortunately, the Phillies fell victim to the veteran middle infielder's cherubic Cuban charm, inking him to a minor league deal to serve as an insurance policy for the empty shells which once...

STEPBACK SATURDAY: When Vince and Tyler Went Gay (Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That)

I have a question for the male readers of the site. Have you ever been pondering the offseason moves of the Brewers and thought to yourself "I am glad they re-signed Craig Counsell, he's kinda hot"? I mean, everyone has had that conversation with a friend that starts like "I know you're not gay, but..." and you immediately yell out "DONNIE FROM NEW...

The Brewers have decided not to bring back hitting coach Johnny Narron or first-base coach Garth Iorg, but the rest of the on-field staff -- including manager Ron Roenicke -- will return next season, the Brewers announced in a press release Friday.

Brewers keep Roenicke as manager, fire two coaches

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will return for the 2015 season, the club announced Friday afternoon.

All Quiet on the Roenicke Front

The situation remains quiet regarding the Brewers front office’s decision on the future of manager Ron Roenicke and the rest of the coaching staff. This lull in offseason decision making is a dead zone when it comes to public information, but undoubtedly it gives Brewers owner Mark Attanasio and GM Doug Melvin time to meet with Roenicke and decide how to pursue improvement over...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Rankings Revisited: Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez Discussed

Major League Baseball’s 2014 regular season is in the books, so it’s time to look back towards Spring Training and reflect upon my preseason fantasy baseball rankings. Many players fell off due to season-ending injuries at some point during the season, unfortunately, but the six below I simply “hit” or “missed” in my initial go-around.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: When Animals Hated Trevor Hoffman

I think the last remaining member of the "Trevor Hoffman is just having a slow start" bandwagon fell off yesterday and now we can all finally accept that Trevor Hoffman is done as a closer. He doesn't have it. He throws right down the middle and he doesn't fool anyone. Is there a person in the world that was honestly surprised that Glaus hit that homerun? I didn...

WAYBACK WEDNESDAY: When John Hughes Died

John Hughes died. This affected me because I am about that age that this sort of thing would matter to me. Considering most of the Brewers are around my age or younger (a fact that depresses me to no end) I figure this has probably affected them too. After the jump it's a mishmash of Brewer reactions to John Hughes' death in one of the most unorganized posts in Miller Park...

Ryan Braun given go-ahead to swing a bat

Ryan Braun should know soon if he is finally able to swing a bat properly again. The Brewers’ rightfielder returned Monday for a follow-up visit with physician Vernon Williams, who performed a cryotherapy procedure on Braun’s ailing right thumb last Thursday at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles.

What Do We Know About Ryan Braun’s Unprecedented Thumb Fix?

Last week, Ryan Braun had a cryotherapy procedure at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles to heal his injured thumb. Today was supposed to be Braun’s follow-up appointment with his physician, Dr. Vernon Williams, although I have yet to see any new reports.  The news that Braun had taken steps to correct the injury was reassuring – not only because the 2011 MVP just concluded...

Fiers pleased with performance, but must prove self again next spring

MILWAUKEE -- When Mike Fiers reported to Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix for spring training last February, his career was hanging in the balance. Fiers was so much of a forgotten man in the organization that he pitched just two innings for the Milwaukee Brewers in spring training before he was assigned to minor-league camp in early March. Emotionally and physically, Fiers had...
