Much has been made of the Brewers’ outfield logjam since the signing of Lorenzo Cain and acquisition of Christian Yelich seemingly left the team with more big leaguers than spots to play them. While Domingo Santana has been an oft-speculated trade candidate, frequently connected to pitching targets, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Keon Broxton has actually...

Watch: Keon Broxton exits game after being struck in face by pitch

Brewers outfielder Keon Broxton left the game Thursday against the Rockies after being hit in the head by a pitch. Ouch! After watching the footage over and over again (and it’s okay to admit that you did), it looks like it could have been way worse for Broxton. “Luckily,” the face guard/flap of the helmet seems to have taken the brunt of some of the ball, protecting his face. The...

All Aboard the Keon Broxton Bandwagon

Sometimes things don’t work out. For example, this morning, I dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Had things gone according to plan, I would have not dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Unfortunate for me. Arguably unfortunate for the bagel. And then, sometimes, things do work out. For example, last Friday, I chatted a little bit about Keon Broxton. Then...
