Reminder: Managers and Coaches Have Negligible Impact

Last week, stories inside and outside Brewers Nation reminded us that the effect coaches and managers have on the game is hard to figure. (Does anyone actually say Brewers Nation?)  News that longtime Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon chose to opt out of his contract surprised most MLB observers.  Closer to home, the Brewers announced they hired a new hitting coach – Darnell...

Rodriguez's future uncertain, but reliever wants to return to Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Francisco Rodriguez is used to uncertainty. At the end of the past two seasons, Rodriguez had no idea what his future would hold. He'd eventually land with the Milwaukee Brewers, but the veteran reliever has twice come to spring training with his role undefined. So when Rodriguez, a free agent following the World Series, walked off the Miller Park mound for the final...

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 Survey Questions on Team Direction More Interesting Than Answers

Yesterday, Noah Jarosh at Brew Crew Ball alerted us to a survey the Brewers sent to select fans on the team’s direction.  It’s not clear how fans were chosen to take the survey, but if you didn’t get it the entire thing can be read at the BCB post.  Although I assume my opinion doesn’t count for much in any area of life, it would have been nice to be one of the chosen. ...

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...
