The latest on Matt Garza is that there’s nothing new to report. The Brewers and Garza reportedly agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract on Thursday, but the team later announced that negotiations were ongoing and that no deal had been reached. The announcement was rather odd, especially when coupled with the news that he…

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…

In the seventh inning of Monday’s Brewers-Braves game, Marco Estrada had a curveball get away from him, hitting Paul Janish squarely in the knee. It was as about as run-of-the-mill as HBPs get, at least until Angel Hernandez called Janish back to box, ruling the pitch a ball. The video isn’t embeddable yet, but here’s…

Rockies 4, Marlins 3: The Rockies won this game but the Marlins took the 1993 Expansion Cup for this season, closing out the year with a 4-3 record against Colorado. What — you don’t keep track of the 1993 Expansion Cup? There’s a great ceremony at the end of the series each year in which either…

All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

Marco Estrada is headed to the disabled list with a hamstring injury and the Brewers will replace him on the roster with Triple-A right-hander Tyler Thornburg. Estrada injured his hamstring during Monday’s start, continuing a rough season that has seen him serve up a league-high 14 homers on the way to a 5.32 ERA. His…

After signing Kyle Lohse to a three-year, $33 million deal earlier this week, the Brewers suddenly have more starting pitchers than rotation spots. While early indications were that Mike Fiers would be the odd man out, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Chris Narveson will begin the season in the bullpen. Narveson is coming off…

There’s no official word yet on who the Brewers will bump from the starting rotation to make room for Kyle Lohse, but Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that it’s expected to be right-hander Mike Fiers. That speaks pretty highly of the Brewers’ rotation depth because Fiers was damn good as a 27-year-old…

Canada kept its second round World Baseball Classic hopes alive with an emphatic 10-3 victory over Mexico today.
