Brewers' Davis on pace for historic month

It has been mentioned here before, but Khris Davis is having one heck of a month. In fact, Davis could join some very rare company in Milwaukee Brewers history. As August winds down, Davis leads the National League in home runs (10) in the month and is tied for the lead in RBI (23). Only six other times in franchise history has a player led (or tied for the lead) in both those categories...

Bombs away for Brewers in interleague play

Yeah, we know it has been a tough year for the Milwaukee Brewers, with playoff hopes being quashed early, a manager fired and several players traded. But despite all that, the Brewers have been playing well over the past two months and there's reason to believe that will continue in a brief two-game set at Cleveland. When it comes to interleague play, Milwaukee has the advantage...

Taylor Jungmann and Diminishing Marginal Utility

When faced with batters on base, Milwaukee Brewers righty Taylor Jungmann goes to his sinker more and throws lower in the zone. He hasn’t given up a home run on the sinker, and the pitch produces ground balls nearly three-quarters of the time. So why doesn’t Jungmann go to the sinker more often? “What makes the sinker better is that I don’t throw it as much,” Jungmann...

Milwaukee Brewers: A wish list for September

Come September 1, the MLB rosters will expand from the usual 25 to 40 players, allowing everyone on a team’s 40-man roster to come play on the big league team. For the Brewers, that means some younger guys will get some big league action to give the coaching staff a sense of what they have to work with for the next season. I personally cannot wait for that day to come, so here’s...

Q&A with Jimmy Nelson, the Brewers emerging ace

Will the Brewers Make an August Trade?

With the Dodgers reportedly acquiring Chase Utley from the Phillies Wednesday, it appears a ripe time to ponder whether the Brewers will make any deals before the waiver-trade deadline at the end of August. At the beginning of the month, starter-turned-bullpen-arm Kyle Lohse looked like the most suitable candidate to be traded before September 1, although his terrible performances...

StaTuesday: Brewers' soon-to-be franchise leader in HRs, Braun could be headed for 400

With his next home run, Ryan Braun will become the Milwaukee Brewers' all-time leader in long balls with 252. After hitting a grand slam in Sunday's win over the Phillies to tie franchise legend Robin Yount at 251, Braun is almost assured -- though, as they say, of course, you can't predict ball -- of taking the top spot. He's also almost assured of holding it for a very long time...
