Garza's stuff recovers for quality outing

While his teammates were trying to figure out R.A. Dickey's knuckleball in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park, Brewers right-hander Matt Garza did everything he could to keep Milwaukee in the game after Brandon Phillips' two-run homer in the third broke a 1-1 tie.

Brewers put men on, can't cash them in

As the rain fell upon SunTrust Park in Friday night's 5-4 loss to the Braves, the Brewers had something cooking in each of Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz's five innings of work. But Milwaukee stranded seven runners in that span, scoring just once on a solo homer from Keon Broxton.

Naming Contending Brewers Stars

The Brewers have spent 36 days in first place this 2017 season, which is perhaps one of the biggest surprises of the MLB campaign. Even those analysts and fans that felt the rebuild and develop campaign was on the right track hardly thought the Brewers would be competitive in the vast majority of cases. Many analysts called the Brewers “interesting” without taking the leap to...

The Juiced Ball and You

The Brewers are fun! And one of the main reasons they’re fun is all of the massive dingers they hit. Keon Broxton has been Aaron Judge-lite over the past several days, and Travis Shaw has been routinely destroying baseballs. As of this writing the Brewers have clubbed 98 home runs, tied for 5th in all of baseball, but while we all love massive dingers, I would like  to briefly...

Brewers Sign Keston Hiura

The Brewers announced on Wednesday that they’ve signed their first-round pick, UC Irvine second baseman/outfielder Keston Hiura. According to MLB.com’s Jim Callis (on Twitter), he’ll receive a bonus of $4MM, which comes in a bit south of the $4.57MM slot value of the No. 9 overall selection.

130 Games of New Wave

The use of restrictive linguistic categories complicates discussion about the 2017 Brewers: since these upstart Brewers will not stop winning, they are short-circuiting fan dialogue between “rebuilding” and “winning now.” According to Baseball Reference, Sunday’s thrilling 2-1 win against San Diego marked the 32nd day that the Brewers stood in first place in the National...

Hader’s Gonna… Join Milwaukee’s Bullpen

In addition to calling up stud center-field prospect Lewis Brinson, Milwaukee also recently summoned talented lefty and KATOH crush Josh Hader. Although Hader’s worked primarily as starter in the minors, the Brewers plan to use him out of the bullpen for the time being. A 19th-round pick out of high school, Hader’s been exceeding expectations for years. He owns a 3.87 FIP and...

Is it too early to call the Milwaukee Brewers contenders?

The Milwaukee Brewers are still on top of the National League Central division with about a month to go before the All-Star Game. It has been a weird start to the year in the NL Central to say the least with the lowest payroll in the MLB leading what was a tough division in 2016. However, is it too early to gauge whether Milwaukee has a real shot at winning the division. I think...

The Brewers Might Have an Actual Ace

There’s not a soul out there that thought the 2017 Brewers would be as good as the 2017 Cubs. There’s not a soul out there that thinks the 2017 Brewers will be as good as the 2017 Cubs. And yet, the 2017 Brewers have been as good as the 2017 Cubs, at least by wins and losses, which are ultimately the only numbers that matter. The Cubs have three more wins than defeats. The Brewers...
