BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Fiers Burning Brightly for Brewers

While the front of the Brewers’ rotation appears capable of matching up with any team in the National League, it remains to be seen whether the back of the staff can hold suit.

Zach Duke of Earl is a pearl

One of the amazing surprises of the year for me has been the success of Zach Duke. After all, for so many years as a starter in the early part of this millennium, Duke came to symbolize everything that was wrong with the (then) perennial losing Pittsburgh Pirates. After a successful rookie season, he quickly sank into a slot of one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball. And...

This Guy Is On Fiers….This Guy Is On Fiers…

Low voice, "Wow." Digs ditch, steps down, "Wow." Need more emphasis. Buys a mini-excavator, consults with architects about installing a down escalator, begins construction, gets behind on schedule, fires a guy that smokes more than he digs, hires a foreman that seems like he knows what he's doing, foreman runs off with money, tracks foreman down in Aruba...

Fantasy baseball go add Mike Fiers: Let’s hope it’s not too late!

Honestly, let’s hope it’s not too late to add Mike Fiers to the Fantasy Baseball squad. I know I’m too late on this video, but to be fair…I did mention Fiers would not only make a great stream option Thursday, but that he would make for a solid addition down the stretch. As a rookie in 2012, Fiers had a 9-10 record with a 3.14 ERA in 22 starts (127 IP). He was striking out...
