  1. The Brewers are off to their best start since 1987

    The Brewers are a major-league best 8-2 to begin the young season.

  2. Martin Maldonado made a really, really good play

    Apr 7, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

    Martin Maldonado Brewers

    Martin Maldonado is the Brewers’ backup catcher behind top-notch starter Jonathan Lucroy, so he doesn’t play much, but when he does get into the game sometimes he makes ridiculously good plays like this one yesterday against the Red Sox.

  3. The powerful, yet dysfunctional, Brewers lineup

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Seattle Mariners

    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:…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 2, Cubs 1: And with that the Pirates are going to the playoffs. It’s so strange, though, how even though it’s the franchise that has lost for the past 20 years — even though it’s just the laundry which has been shut out so long — that we sort of passively put all that…

  5. The Roberto Clemente Award Nominees have been announced

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Clayton Kershaw won it last year.  The 2013 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. And now my annual complaint, albeit a minor one: Baseball has set…

  6. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Jonathan Lucroy Getty

    The Cardinals were shut out by the Cubs yesterday afternoon, so the Reds had a chance to move into second place in the National League Central with a win over the Brewers last night. And they appeared in fine position to do just that when Arolids Chapman strolled to the mound for the bottom of…

  7. NL All-Star voting update

    2013 All Star Game Logo

    Yadier Molina and Buster Posey are neck-and-neck tatto. David Wright is getting help from the cougars! Did Domonoic Brown do something awful to the pets of every All-Star voter? Confused? You won’t be, after this week’s episode of … “SOAP!” Er, sorry. After this week’s NL All-Star voting update: FIRST BASE Joey Votto, Reds 2,047,945…

  8. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 13, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…

  9. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 15, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

  10. Brewers finally end ridiculous scoring drought

    Apr 14, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Ryan Braun‘s two-run home run in the eighth inning of today’s series finale in St. Louis sparked a late-game comeback and ended a team record 32-inning scoreless inning streak. The home run brought the score to 3-2. In the ninth, Yuniesky Betancourt‘s RBI double tied the game, and Jonathan Lucroy‘s solo home run in the…

  11. U.S. rallies late against Canada to advance in WBC

    Mar 10, 2013, 7:29 PM EDT

    USA v Canada - World Baseball Classic - First Round Group D

    The U.S. rallied late against Canada to advance out of Pool D to the second round in the World Baseball Classic. Canada got on the board early thanks to a two-run home run by Michael Saunders off of U.S. starter Derek Holland. Holland was otherwise solid, allowing just the two runs over five innings of work,…

  12. Team USA keeps hope alive with 6-2 victory over Italy

    Mar 10, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

    World Baseball Classic - Pool D - United States v Italy

    David Wright hit a grand slam in the fifth inning of tonight’s contest that resulted in a 6-2 victory for the U.S. over Italy, keeping their hopes alive in Pool D. The U.S. had stayed within striking distance of Italy, trailing 2-1 entering the fifth. Italy scored twice, once in each of the first and…

  13. And this is why Team USA won’t ever win a WBC

    Mar 8, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    J.P. Arencibia

    Of the 223 players with at least 350 plate appearances in 2012, J.P. Arencibia ranked 169th in wOBA. Among those players born in the United States, he’s not one of the top 100 hitters. Maybe he’s in the 100-150 range. Yet there was Arencibia getting what may well have been the biggest at-bat for Joe…

  14. Photo of the Day: Brewers fans have cool t-shirts

    Camera

    Walking around the concourse I came across this fellow: Not sure I’ve ever seen anyone express their feelings for Jonathan Lucroy so strongly, but Brian from New Berlin, Wisconsin is doing it. There’s a lot of Wisconsin here. Indeed, I’ll say that Maryvale is probably tied with Scottsdale for the Cactus League Park which apes…

  15. Mark Teixeira injures forearm, to miss World Baseball Classic

    Mar 5, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    Yankees and Team USA first baseman Mark Teixeira suffered a strained right forearm hitting off a tee Tuesday before an exhibition against the White Sox and will miss the World Baseball Classic. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, he’s currently slated to miss 7-10 days. FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi confirmed through an official that Teixeira would…

  17. 2012 projections review: catcher

    Oct 24, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT

    Joe Mauer

    I’ll be doing some projection reviews over the next couple of weeks, starting with catcher here. Along with running down my preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each position, I’ll also present a few more that are of interest. Requests of players not listed can be made in the comments. 1. Carlos Santana –…

  18. Brewers acquire catcher Yorvit Torrealba from Blue Jays

    Sep 21, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Yorvit Torrealba Getty

    He won’t be eligible for the playoffs if Milwaukee gets there, but the Brewers have added some backup catching help for the final two weeks by acquiring Yorvit Torrealba from the Blue Jays for cash considerations. Torrealba was released by the Rangers in early August after they traded for Geovany Soto to replace him as…

  19. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jim Johnson, Taylor Teagarden

    Orioles 5, White Sox 3: Zach Britton strikes out ten, gets sent down to the minors. That’s fair. That aside, heady freakin’ times for the Orioles who, apart from the Yankees fans, I think everyone on the planet is wanting to sweep New York and make the AL East a dead heat by Sunday night.…

  20. Cubs beat Brewers 12-11 in a wild one

    Aug 30, 2012, 7:11 PM EDT

    Alfonso Soriano

    The Brewers got seven RBI from Jonathan Lucroy and a career-high five hits from Rickie Weeks on Thursday. What they didn’t get was a victory, as Milwaukee pitchers walked 11 batters and blew leads of 9-3 in the sixth and 11-9 in the ninth in a 12-11 loss to the Cubs. The latest huge letdown…

  21. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  22. A’s acquire George Kottaras from Brewers for Fautino De Los Santos

    Jul 30, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    George Kottaras

    As soon as the Brewers designated George Kottaras for assignment last week the clock was ticking on a trade and sure enough it’s now official: Milwaukee has sent the veteran catcher to Oakland for reliever Fautino De Los Santos. Kottaras makes up for a low batting average with good power and excellent plate discipline, so…

  23. Brewers agree to deal catcher George Kottaras to Athletics

    UPDATE: According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Brewers are getting right-handed reliever Fautino De Los Santos. SATURDAY, 4:02 PM ET: Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the two clubs have reached an agreement on a deal. It’s not clear what the Brewers are getting in return, but it doesn’t figure to…

  24. Trade coming? Brewers activate Jonathan Lucroy, designate George Kottaras for assignment

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    George Kottaras

    In making room for starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy‘s return from the disabled list the Brewers designated backup catcher George Kottaras for assignment. That means Milwaukee has decided to stick with Martin Maldonado as Lucroy’s new backup, but it’s unlikely that they’d be willing to simply let Kottaras go for nothing via waivers. Instead, expect the…

  25. Jonathan Lucroy on track to begin minor league rehab assignment Thursday

    Jul 16, 2012, 8:30 PM EDT

    Jonathan Lucroy Getty

    Jonathan Lucroy was off to a surprising start before suffering a fracture in his right hand almost two months ago. But he’s inching closer to rejoining the Brewers’ lineup. According to Brewers’ media relations director Mike Vassallo, Lucroy is tentatively scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Class A Wisconsin. Lucroy began…
