BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Platoons at 1B, 2B producing mixed results for Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Two weeks into the regular season, Ron Roenicke is still waiting for a clear answer to emerge at first base and second base. Until then, he'll continue to split up the playing time.  Mark Reynolds appeared to be pulling away after starting seven consecutive games at first base, but Lyle Overbay got the call Sunday and Monday. Early on, Reynolds has provided the...

Brewers' 9-game winning streak snapped by rival Cardinals

MILWAUKEE -- The top of the sixth inning looked like one of those frames the Milwaukee Brewers have had a few times on their nine-game winning streak. A couple of clutch defensive plays gave Matt Garza and the Brewers a way out of an inning that could have easily turned ugly, but this time one swing of the bat prevented the momentum-shifting sequence from going their way. Jon Jay...

Brewers bullpen dominant to start season

MILWAUKEE -- In what is an unpredictable game, the most incalculable aspect of baseball might just be the bullpen. A team needs a good one in order to contend for the postseason, but finding the right mix can prove challenging. The Milwaukee Brewers don't need to be told that. They watched in 2012 as their bullpen had the highest ERA in baseball and was one of the major factors...

Milwaukee Brewers Looking Like a Contender

Overreacting is fun. Overanalyzing is also fun. With that said, the baseball season is ridiculously long, but the Milwaukee Brewers are looking like an early contender in the National League.  Fresh off a series sweep against the Pittsburg Pirates, the Brew Crew have won 9 games in a row and currently hold a 10-2 record. Perhaps the most impressive part of their hot start is that...

Cards hope bats continuing picking up potency during trip to Milwaukee

Just one win shy of their longest winning streak in nearly 11 years, the Milwaukee Brewers continue to rely on strong pitching as they add to their best start since 1987.

Milwaukee Brewers starting to turn heads

Less than two weeks into baseball’s regular season, judging a team’s true potential to make a run at the postseason is almost impossible, but after winning seven of their first nine games to start 2014, the Milwaukee Brewers have become hard to ignore.
