Ryan Braun Is No Longer Just Another Cautionary Tale

Ryan Braun is a guy whose reputation has been severely tarnished due to his admission of using performance-enhancing drugs. It wasn’t the admission of PEDs that made everyone turn their back on him, though. Braun had previously gone on live television and read a prepared speech telling the public, “If I had done this intentionally, or unintentionally, I’d be the first one...

WATCH: Khris Davis trolls umps after controversial homer

A bizarre sight at Miller Park today: Brewers outfielder Khris Davis hit a home run, only to be called out on the play for not touching home plate – a call which would be reversed. Here’s how it all went down. After hitting a juicy fastball off of Giants righty Tim Lincecum out of the park, Davis proceeded to do what any baseball player does when you hit a dinger – round...

Milwaukee Brewers: Time to think about starting Blazek

Kyle Lohse has been struggling for the Brewers this season. The Milwaukee Brewers have the second worst ERA in the National League at 4.54 this season, and their two most expensive starters, Matt Garza and Kyle Lohse, both have an ERA over 5.50. The starting rotation for the Brewers have combined for the second fewest quality starts in the National League and provided the team with...

Confessions of a die-hard Milwaukee Brewers fan

The Milwaukee Brewers have really been trying my patience this season. I expected a lot more out of them at this point, but instead I’m looking at a team in dead last in the NL Central. The NL Central is one of the most competitive divisions we have in the MLB, and being behind more than 11 games is a bleak situation indeed. Firing Ron Roenicke was an excellent decision, as I...

Milwaukee Brewers Cannot Afford 8-Game Suspension for Will Smith

Through the first 5 1/2 innings on Thursday night, Milwaukee and Atlanta battled a 1-1 game. Gerardo Parra got thrown out at 2nd on a Ryan Braun sacrifice fly that scored Carlos Gomez, and the Brewers ran themselves out of an opportunity in the 4th. When it comes to this team, fans need to take what they can get and at least appreciate the fact that the Brewers scored a run. The...

Brewers pitcher Will Smith ejected after pine tar is spotted on arm

In the seventh inning of Thursday’s Brewers-Braves, Milwaukee reliever Will Smith was ejected in the seventh inning after Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez spotted some pine tar on Smith’s arm. The umpiring crew conferred, spotted the pine tar on Smith, and booted him from the game. Smith’s infraction wasn’t nearly as blatant as Michael Pineda’s violation last year, in which...

Counsell goes with an unusual lineup

  Those watching the Brewers on Thursday may have noticed that Luis Sardinas was batting ninth while starting pitcher Matt Garza was hitting eighth. While having a pitcher bat eighth isn't unheard of, it certainly is rare. So why did Brewers manager Craig Counsell – a relatively new manager – opt for the unique strategy? “Like I've said before, Carlos [Gomez] has a lot to...

Brewers impressed with Sardinas

  Luis Sardinas, 22, may be young, but that doesn't appear to be holding him back any. Sardinas, called up late last week, has played well in his first week in the Majors and the Brewers have certainly taken notice. "What's exciting to me is that I feel like he's gotten better since Spring Training," Brewers manager Craig Counsell told "He plays really easy with a good...

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...

Carlos Gomez gets hit in head with 97 mph fastball

Milwaukee Brewers fans were dealt a serious scare Sunday afternoon.

Milwaukee Brewers: Can a season be lost in April?

Rough starts in MLB aren’t usually a big deal. Even if you lose eight of your first 10 games, there are still over 150 left to play. But what if the entire month turns out like that? For the Milwaukee Brewers, such was their April. It mercifully came to an end on Thursday, with their record an abysmal 5-17, the worst mark in all of baseball. And while they won’t be this bad...
