Reassessing Wily Peralta

When Wily Peralta was sent to the minor leagues in the middle of June, he was struggling tremendously. He had put up a 6.68 ERA in in 66 innings and struck out 42 batters and walked 27. These numbers were absolutely horrible, and—as I wrote at the beginning of the season—Peralta’s underlying performance was trending downwards as well. The demotion was justified. But when Junior...

Chalk Up Another Brewers Buy-Low Success

Some parts of the Brewers’ rebuild have been relatively easy. I mean, all trade negotiations are complex, but it was pretty obvious when it was time for the Brewers to trade Carlos Gomez, and they were inevitably going to get a strong prospect return. And, it was pretty obvious when it was time for the Brewers to trade Jonathan Lucroy, and they were inevitably going to get a strong...

Woman suing Brewers after being struck by foul ball

A New Jersey woman is crying foul in a new lawsuit filed against the Milwaukee Brewers. Dana Morelli is suing the Brewers organization after getting hit by a foul ball under her eye in 2014. Morelli told CBS58 that Milwaukee didn’t do enough to protect her from the injury, which caused her to be unable to work full time until mid-2015. The Brewers declined to comment on the case...

ESPN Power Rankings Week 21: Perez Stays Hot, Moves Crew Up

ESPN released their latest rankings, which has the Brewers up one spot at No. 22. It’s safe to say that’s sort of difficult to justify after getting swept by the Pirates, but hey, we’ll take it! Hernan Perez continues to ride a hot streak. We all know it. I can throw out some fancy stats right now, but I simply don’t have the time right now (I’ll explain in the next few...

Jonathan Villar’s Historically Bad Baserunning

Jonathan Villar made another baserunning error this past weekend, and his gaffes on the base paths have become common this season. While the specific errors he is making are obviously not the difference between the Brewers being in and out of the playoffs, they are still worrying because seasons like this one are at least partially useful for building winning habits. And whether...

Game 124: Brewers 4 Rockies 2

TOP PLAY (WPA): The top play of this game happened in the first inning. The Brewers were batting and Jonathan Villar was leading off the inning. On the fourth pitch of the at-bat, he pulled a ground ball past the second baseman for a leadoff single. Villar then stole second base, his 49th steal of the season. The next batter was Keon Broxton, and he grounded out to second base. On...

All Aboard the Keon Broxton Bandwagon

Sometimes things don’t work out. For example, this morning, I dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Had things gone according to plan, I would have not dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Unfortunate for me. Arguably unfortunate for the bagel. And then, sometimes, things do work out. For example, last Friday, I chatted a little bit about Keon Broxton. Then...

WATCH: Anthony Rizzo climbs dugout to make great catch

Last year, Chicago Cubs star first baseman Anthony Rizzo climbed the tarp to make an absurd play against the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field: Well, he just made a similar play against the Brewers (with Jason Hammel again on the mound for the Cubs), but this time he climbed the ledge over the tarp at Wrigley. This is insane: King of the Confines. —...

Brewers rookies make Starbucks run in full uniform

Baseball has a long season. The toll this takes on players manifests in many ways, from ridiculously intricate handshake routines to a team adopting a rally mantis. And sometimes, when you’re staring down a day-night doubleheader, you need some caffeine. That’s the situation the Brewers found themselves in, and they didn’t want any clubhouse coffee. Rather, they apparently...
