In trading last year’s leadoff man, Norichika Aoki, and failing to add the quality left-handed-hitting first baseman they wanted, the Brewers have left themselves with the most unbalanced lineup in baseball. Here are the likely starters, along with my projection for each: C: Jonathan Lucroy (R) – .283/.337/.443 1B: Mark Reynolds (R) – .231/.328/.455 2B:…

Just to review, my take on the Braves-Brewers thing last night is that while Carlos Gomez was certainly out of line, Brian McCann and the Braves were too and that they are the ones responsible for what should have been a minor thing turning into a fight that caused punches to be thrown and a…

The Cardinals have themselves a little breathing room in the National League Central. Though closer Edward Mujica struggled again and put the Brewers in position to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Cardinals eventually won 7-6 in 10 innings. Carlos Beltran drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly…

Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks. The real amazing thing here is that if you would have told me before the season that the Braves would have a game in late August where Elliot Johnson got a start and tripled…

Two weeks after talking about how his recovery from knee problems wasn’t going as well as he hoped Aramis Ramirez is off the disabled list and back in the Brewers’ lineup for tonight’s game. Ramirez has played just 54 of a possible 118 games while hitting .271 with five homers and a .773 OPS that…

Aramis Ramirez will be on the disabled list when the trade deadline passes tomorrow and now it sounds like the Brewers third baseman may not be particularly close to returning from a knee injury. “I’m not healing as well as I thought I would,” Ramirez told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. “I don’t know why. I’m…

While the Brewers’ portal to the MLB.com shop area is now Ryan Braun free, the Braun jerseys themselves are easy enough to find and are still marked at full price. An authentic Braun home jersey costs $298.99 through MLB.com, the same price one would pay for a Brewers jersey featuring the name and number of…

In news that throws cold water on speculation about contenders pursuing Aramis Ramirez as their new third baseman, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that he’ll be on the disabled list for at least another 10-14 days. Ramirez is recovering from a left knee injury that’s been an issue since spring training and Rosenthal’s reported timetable…

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that Nick Cafardo has a source in the Sox’ scouting department: When Aramis Ramirez returns from the disabled list Monday look for the Red Sox and Yankees to be scouting him. Both teams need a RH 3B. — Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) July 19, 2013 The…

Ryan Braun, who’s spent the past month on the sidelines with a thumb injury, is back in the Brewers’ lineup tonight against the Reds. Braun played through the injury for quite a while before the Brewers finally decided to shut him down in early June. Milwaukee’s lineup still isn’t close to full strength, however, as…
