BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Gennett laments double play that wasn't

It looked to the naked eye like a routine double play, just like the 50,000 or so others Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett figured he's turned in practices and games since boyhood. Thanks to the modern rules instituted by instant replay, this one had a uniquely painful outcome.

Non-Top 30 Prospects off to a Hot Start

As exciting as watching major prospects rise to greatness, many fans often omit the smaller seasonal accomplishments of other minor league names.  Despite many being seen as organizational depth at the beginning of the year, numerous guys at the upper-levels of the Brewers’ farm system have played incredibly through the first 44-50 games. With their lengthened success, the parent...

Hernan Perez’s power doesn’t surprise Brewers

The Brewers were fully aware of the pop in the bat of Hernan Perez when they recalled him late last month from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Just to be clear, nobody’s going to confuse Perez with Giancarlo Stanton, but the Brewers’ third baseman will be a consistent threat to hit it out once he becomes more consistent with ball/strike recognition. He played in a career-high 90 games...

When should the Brewers be Competitive?

Simple fact: #Brewers are not bad enough to warrant multi-year rebuild. Figure out roster depth, advance prospects in '16; compete in '17. — BP Milwaukee (@BPMilwaukee) May 22, 2016 We often think of rebuilds in simplistic terms. A team gets rid of its notable assets. Loses many games, gets quality draft picks, rebuilds farm system and then once prospects come up, the team in...

The One Thing That’s Gone Right For Milwaukee Pitchers

Central in the Great Brewers Pitching Meltdown of 2016 has been a complete loss of control, on the part of pretty much everyone. The rotation has the seventh-worst walk rate in baseball, at 9.3 percent, and the bullpen’s 11.2 percent clip ranks third-to-last. Taylor Jungmann walked so many batters, he went down to Triple-A (where he’s done the same thing). Wily Peralta has looked...

The Milwaukee Brewers could play “spoiler” in 2016

The division has been in the conversation for a World Series ever since David Freese and the St. Louis...

Milwaukee Brewers: Hey, it hasn’t been so bad thus far

For Milwaukee Brewers fans, the narrative for the 2016 season was already spelled out for them: it was not going to be a fun season, and a winning record would be a complete fantasy. The team is in full rebuilding mode, and fans would just have to stay patient until the team would be ready to compete in however many years from now. For myself, I bought the narrative. I knew going...

Pitching Staff and the Rebuild

It’s no secret that the Brewers’ pitching staff has struggled tremendously this year: they rank last in baseball in DRA, are the only group to have posted negative WARP, and are leading only Cincinnati in FIP. And unfortunately for the Brewers, many of the culprits are young pitchers who the club was hoping to be able to build around. While last year blame could justifiably be...

Buyers and sellers are among some of the great debates during the summer of the Major League Baseball season, and the Milwaukee Brewers are front and center.
