New GM David Stearns sets fresh tone for retooling Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) Nearly a week into his tenure with the Milwaukee Brewers, new general manager David Stearns is beginning to set a fresh tone for a franchise in transition. This has been a busy period for Stearns, who was hired on Sept. 21 but only officially began with the Brewers this week as he transitioned out of his previous job as an assistant GM for the Houston Astros.

Brewers designate Nevin Ashley for assignment, claim RHP Guerra off waivers

After making his major-league debut with the Milwaukee Brewers this past season at age 31, Nevin Ashley's short time with the big-league club might be ended. The team designated Ashley for assignment on Wednesday, removing him from the 40-man roster. The catcher, who was called up on Sept. 7, hit .100 with one RBI in 20 at bats in the majors. In a corresponding move, the Brewers...

10 Best Brewers Wins of 2015

Even though the Brewers’ 2015 win total was their lowest in a decade, some of them were bloody good fun. Interestingly, quite a few exciting wins came against the Cardinals, even though the Brewers only beat St. Louis six times. There wasn’t a lot for Brewers fans to cheer about in 2015, and although I’m as anxious as anyone to put the whole sordid affair behind us, it wasn’t...

StaTuesday: How Brewers rookies performed down the stretch

After 94-loss season and new GM hire, more changes ahead for Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers packed up their belongings and said their goodbyes for the 2015 season after getting swept in the final series by the Chicago Cubs. Really, the franchise started looking forward to next year five months ago. An offseason of change has arrived as Milwaukee looks to retool following its first 90-loss campaign since 2004. At 68-94, the Brewers were 14 games...

Brewers drop regular season finale to Cubs

MILWAUKEE -- The Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Sunday for their eighth straight win, but still needed Pittsburgh to lose in order to host the Pirates in the NL wild-card game. Pittsburgh, which played Cincinnati, held a one-game lead over the Cubs in the wild-card standings. If the teams finish with identical records, the Cubs would hold the tiebreaker and host the...

Can Milwaukee Brewers fans trust Mark Attanasio’s comments?

I hope this is the final time I have to recap this story, but with a few painful hours remaining on the frustrating disappointment of a season the Milwaukee Brewers have put together, it needs to be remembered. 2014 ended with the Brewers collapsing in the final 30 days of the campaign, throwing away a 150-day reign atop the National League Central. One day later, Owner Mark Attanasio...

Milwaukee Brewers: Reaction to Mark Attanasio’s comments

Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio has begun fielding questions about the disappointing 2015 season as well as the upcoming offseason, and from his responses come a sense of optimism for the future. Per Adam McCalvy, Attanasio told reporters outside the Brewers dugout, “The silver lining on the season is it became crystal clear to us as to where we were and what we needed...

Ryan Braun’s Much-Needed Resurgence

Let one thing be clear: I understand why many dislike Ryan Braun. Back when he was found to have violated MLB’s substance abuse policy, particularly just after winning the NL MVP and having an important hand in leading his Milwaukee Brewers to the NLCS, it was difficult to not feel cynical. As we all know, he won his appeal. The day that decision was announced, Braun was awfully...

In final series, Brewers need extra offense against Cubs

The Milwaukee Brewers begin their final series of the season at home against the Chicago Cubs on Friday. The Cubs are coming into town hot, having won five games in a row -- their seventh separate win streak of at least five games in 2015. They've had success against everyone in the second half, posting the National League's best record since the All-Stark break (47-25, .653). But...

Padres host Brewers in final home game of 2015

Beginning with his major league debut in June, Taylor Jungmann was one of the NL's top rookie starters for his first three-plus months. The Milwaukee Brewers right-hander has hardly looked like the same pitcher in recent outings but will get the chance to end his season on a positive note Thursday against the short-handed San Diego Padres. Jungmann went 9-5 with a 2.42 ERA in his...

Padres host Brewers in final night game of season Wed. night

The Milwaukee Brewers decided last week to go with an all-rookie rotation for the remainder of the season, and so far, the kids are all right. Milwaukee will look to pick up a third straight victory behind a rookie pitcher Wednesday night against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. This plan was more of a matter of circumstance than it was by design for the Brewers. Jimmy Nelson...

Craig Counsell on Decisions and Collaboration

The Milwaukee Brewers have reportedly hired David Stearns to be their new general manager. What that means for Craig Counsell is yet to be determined. The 45-year-old Counsell has been the club’s manager since May, and his contract extends through the 2017 season. On the surface, Counsell and the Harvard-educated Stearns look to be a good fit. Counsell was an accounting major at...

Brewers fan vents about Miller Park's 'circus-like atmosphere'

If the Milwaukee Brewers ever want to climb out of the cellar in the National League Central, they might want to reconsider the way they encourage fans to cheer on their team. Or at least that’s what one disgruntled fan of the Brew Crew thinks. FYI The organist at Miller Park encourages opponents to get hits. — Sam Oehler (@samoehler) September...

Fans at Miller Park witnessed a frightening moment Thursday night.

End of season post-mortem: 2015 Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers showed manager Ron Roenicke the door after a disappointing, MLB-worst  7-18 start that many blamed on poor luck. After replacing him with Craig Counsell, they played much more respectably, going 55-63 following Roenicke’s dismissal, right in the middle of the National League pack. So, could the Brewers end up holding their heads strong once this season is over? Preseason...

The second team to be sent home for the winter is the Milwaukee Brewers, who head out shortly...

Scooter Gennett: A Brewer’s Quest for Discipline

Scooter Gennett came into the season with a .300 batting average in 704 big-league plate appearance. The stat obviously has limited value, but it does suggest an ability to put a bat on a baseball. Gennett excels at it, sometimes to his detriment. The 25-year-old second baseman puts a lot of balls in play. His Z-Contact% as a Milwaukee Brewer is 91.9 and his O-Contact% is 74. Both...
