In recent years, we have become more appreciative of the value of defense. There has been an influx of defensive statistics that have been able (to some extent) to quantify the value of a player and a team in the field. Even for those who scoff at advanced defensive statistics, most could judge by the eye-test that the Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals have had elite defenses the...

Ryan Braun is clearly not a fan of how long Spring Training is

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun provided some very honest thoughts Thursday regarding the length of Spring Training. The 33-year-old outfielder told MLB.Com’s Adam McCalvy that his favorite Spring Training at-bat is “a first-pitch, line drive double play,” and added that “We don’t get paid by the hour.” Well, that’s some refreshing honesty, at least. Of course...

Garza using spring training to work on off-speed pitches

PHOENIX -- Matt Garza stuck with the game plan Thursday, which meant the Brewers right-hander fed the Arizona Diamondbacks a steady diet of offspeed pitches. It was a practice in patience for the fiery starter. Garza allowed four runs on five hits, including a homer, over 3 1/3 innings in Milwaukee's 8-5 win. Not his most flattering line.

The Next Step for Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana

Last year, only one team improved their exit velocity in the second half as much as the Brewers did, when they went from 17th in the league to fifth. That might not surprise you, because you’ve read often about the young power duo on that team — Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana — and those two were at their healthiest and most dynamic in the second half.
