Doug Melvin Returned Brewers to Relevance

Friday, August 14th, 2015

After months of speculation regarding his future with the Milwaukee Brewers, Doug Melvin brought the rumors to an end Tuesday by announcing that he’s ready to step down as the franchise’s general manager and transition into an advisory role.

Tim Kurkijan is a subpar sausage racer

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

ESPN baseball reporter Tim Kurkijan made a foray into gonzo journalism by participating in the Sausage Race at Milwaukee's Miller Park during Monday night's Brewers-Nationals game. But to paraphrase famous Kazakh journalist Borat, it was not a great success. (Or maybe it was since we're talking about it). Kurkijan dressed up ...

Zack Greinke is still Brewers’ No. 2 starter

Monday, September 17th, 2012

I haven't paid much attention to baseball in the last month or so, because that's what happens when you're a Cubs fan. However, I have watched enough games this season to realize the Milwaukee Brewers ascension up the standings came out of nowhere. Suddenly a team that was just a notch ...

The Padres Front Office Is Dead To Me

Friday, January 9th, 2009

As I'm sure you've heard, yesterday baseball's all-time saves leader agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, officially ending his 16-year tenure with the San Diego Padres. As a lifelong Padres fan, I'm not happy. In fact, I'm the opposite of happy. Typically I try to take the high road ...

Now that the White Sox have wrapped up the final playoff spot after Tuesday night's 1-0 thriller over the Twins for the AL Central title, we can finally make our playoff predictions.

Ben Sheets is Pretty Much Just Like Kerry Wood

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

It's not often we actively root against an athlete, no matter how outrageous or annoying they are (see Schilling, Curt). This is certainly the case with Brewers pitcher Ben Sheets. No, we don't like him. He pitches for the Brewers and Cubs fans clearly outnumber anything else on this blog. He's ...

Blame it on McLane, Yost is Toast, and Other Brew-haha’s

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

After missing history at Miller Park Sunday night, I was not going to stand idly by as the Cubs took on the Astros once again Monday afternoon. Come cheese or high water, nothing would stop me from paying my penance to the baseball gods. Thanks to Theodore Roosevelt Lilly, I nearly ...
