Claiming Vogt

The Brewers shook things up behind the plate on Sunday. Jett Bandy has been jettisoned to Class-AAA, and to replace him the Brewers snatched Stephen Vogt off the waiver wire from the Oakland Athletics. Vogt was an All-Star in 2015 and 2016 for the Athletics, partially because the weak Athletics roster had no obvious candidates and Vogt played a shallow position. But Vogt also posted...

The Milwaukee Brewers need to take advantage of weak division.

The National League Central has proven to be far below the expectations of the 2017 season. The Chicago Cubs won 103 games and let’s not forget the World Series a season ago. This year the Cubs have yet to show what its obvious talent can do. The Pirates and Cardinals have no offense. The NL Central is sitting there for the taking. Milwaukee is not respected by anyone in the media...

Shaw hits long HR, Davies shines as Brewers blank Braves 7-0

ATLANTA (AP) — Travis Shaw became the first player to reach SunTrust Park’s right-field roof, belting a two-run homer that helped the Milwaukee Brewers beat Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves 7-0 on Sunday. Zach Davies (8-4) pitched seven innings of four-hit ball for Milwaukee, bouncing back nicely from his worst start of the season. After being held to a combined five runs...

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.

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' Arcia makes ridiculous play to secure one-run victory

The Milwaukee Brewers have been one of baseball’s biggest surprises this season, featuring a roster that doesn’t exactly jump at you on paper, but keeps finding ways to win games.On Wednesday night at Miller Park, it appeared the Pittsburgh Pirates were about to tie the game with two outs in the top of the ninth when 22-year-old shortstop Orlando Arcia came out of nowhere to...

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...
