The Huntsville Stars are now the Biloxi Shuckers

For the 2015 season, the Huntsville Stars (AA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers) will be playing in Biloxi, Mississippi.  The move necessitated a name and logo change, which would be determined in a “name the team” contest. Nearly 60,000 votes later, the winner was chosen – the Biloxi Shuckers Ladies and Gentlemen… Your Biloxi Shuckers! pic.twitter.com/6YH2PXmcAb — Baseball...

Lind excited to be on contender, solve Brewers' first-base woes

After two years of receiving historically low offensive production out of first base, the Milwaukee Brewers didn't waste any time in making a trade for a better everyday option. The fact the Brewers moved swiftly to acquire a first baseman was not a surprise to those in Milwaukee, but it is easy to see how Adam Lind was caught off guard when he landed from a vacation to learn...

Sunday Notes: A Change Will Do You Good: Brewers, Yanks, Cards, Astros, DBacks

Clint Coulter is no longer a catcher. The 21-year-old Milwaukee Brewers prospect is currently playing right field in the Arizona Fall League, and it’s not a temporary assignment. According to farm director Reid Nichols, “The plan is for him to stay in the outfield.” Based on this summer’s performance, his bat will play anywhere. Playing […]

Adam Lind and Baseball’s Worst Position

The baseball offseason arrived all of a sudden. As the Giants were parading around the streets of San Francisco, I was on my computer writing about the Cubs ditching Rick Renteria to hire Joe Maddon. And then Saturday brought the offseason’s first meaningful trade — Adam Lind to the Brewers, and Marco Estrada to the […]

For the First Time Since 2011 the Brewers Have a “Real” First Baseman

After the 2013 season, it was obvious that the Brewers were in serious need of help at 1B. During that offseason, the Brewers brought in veterans Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds as insurance in case they decided not to give the starting job to Juan Francisco.  At the time, few fans were enthusiastic about the prospects at 1B heading into 2014, but the Brewers really didn’t have...

Brewers acquire Adam Lind from Blue Jays

The Milwaukee Brewers have moved quickly to fill their hole at first base this offseason, acquiring former Blue Jay Adam Lind in exchange for long reliever Marco Estrada. Toronto just picked up a $7.5 million option on Lind for 2015, and the Brewers will now have him at that salary.

Brewers Rumors: Aramis Ramirez wants to remain a Brewer

Without Aramis Ramirez, the Milwaukee Brewers would go from third base being a team strength to a major weakness.  Ramirez has proven throughout his time in Milwaukee and his entire career in the National League Central that he can be a big time run producer. But as both he and the team enter the offseason, things could get interesting. #456468418 / gettyimages.com Ramirez has...

Brewers Make Right Call By Retaining Ron Roenicke

Last Friday, Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin announced that Ron Roenicke will return to manage the team in 2015.

Farewell My Love. Farewell Rickie Weeks.

When the Brewers played their last game of 2014 it was also the last game that Rickie Weeks will play for the Brewers. To some this will be good riddance. To others it's been a long time coming. To me? It's the end of an era. Rickie Weeks has been my favorite Brewers since before he was a Brewer. It was Rickie Weeks being drafted number two overall that brought the Brewers...

Milwaukee Brewers: Roenicke remains

I was really impressed with how Mark Attanasio and Doug Melvin expressed frustration at the end of the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2014 season. It seemed like these guys, especially Attanasio, were going to clean house and find out which players and coaches want to win most. At the time, I expected a veritable purge of the coaching staff. Instead, what Brewers fans and I got was the retention...

Milwaukee Brewers: Some final thoughts going into offseason

The Milwaukee Brewers were officially eliminated from playoff contention yesterday, and they lost the first game of Fan Appreciation weekend to the Chicago Cubs by a score of 6-4.

Milwaukee Brewers: October is out of reach

Missed opportunities and asinine decisions cost the Milwaukee Brewers another win last night, as they fell 3-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals in 13 innings. Kyle Lohse’s fantastic start last night went to waste. The maddening defeat knocked the Brewers back another game behind Pittsburgh in the Wild Card race to increase their gap to three and a half.
