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...
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.https://t.co/adkwZD5lIB —...
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...
Prince Fielder was dealt an unfortunate hand when he was forced to step down from professional baseball. The former Milwaukee Brewers first baseman departs from America’s pastime leaving us fans with a sad ending to a great story. Fielder is currently recovering from his second spinal fusion surgery. His reoccurring neck injuries have his doctors concerned about his future health...
The continued presence of Matt Garza in the Brewers rotation seems to defy explanation. The club needs to pay him this year and next, but they have no playing-time obligation. He clearly has no trade value at this point — his ERA and DRA sit at 5.03 and 5.36, respectively — so why continue to start him when Josh Hader, Brent Suter, and a host of others sit in the minors? Shouldn’t...
When Matt Garza signed with the Brewers before the 2014 season, the Brewers had to have been hoping that he would be a veteran anchor for a young and developing group of starting pitchers. Both Wily Peralta and Jimmy Nelson were already in the rotation, and Taylor Jungmann would join them the next year. In an ideal world, Garza would be providing solid, approximately league-average...
Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Zach Davies has left his early 2016 struggles far, far behind. The 23-year-old right-hander delivered another quality start for the Brewers on Monday, going seven innings and allowing three runs against the Atlanta Braves. He began his night in ace-like form, taking care of the first three Braves batters on just six pitches. Davies ended up getting...
Orlando Arcia has been Milwaukee’s shortstop of the future since well before his call-up and Brewers debut this Monday. His arrival has been perhaps the most anticipated part of the 2016 season, a rebuilding year destined for a fourth-place finish from the start. But the brightest star in Milwaukee’s season so far has been Opening Day shortstop Jonathan Villar, who leads the...
