I like that picture. It says “Michael Pineda came, Michael Pineda saw, Michael Pineda conquered.”

One of baseball’s older cliches came true on Friday night thanks to Martin Maldonado.
Apr 7, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT
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.

Adam McCalvy knows what time it is. He saw catcher Martin Maldonado walk into Brewers camp and asked the hard questions that needed to be asked: After only four days off, a noticeably trim Maldonado reported for duty at Maryvale Baseball Park. “Not that I was overweight last year, but I wanted to come into…

How did the Brewers’ winning streak end? One run down, a man on second and Martin Maldonado being called out for interfering with a ball in fair territory: Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think this was a botched call as many have said this morning. Yes, Maldonado’s foot is still in the batter’s…

Padres starter Edinson Volquez blanked the Brewers for seven innings Wednesday to win for the first time this year. Normally, that wouldn’t necessarily be worthy of a blog entry. However, it happened to be the first time in 127 career starts in which Volquez went seven innings and walked no one. Volquez, who walked 105…

Milwaukee transferred Corey Hart to the 60-day disabled list, meaning the injured first baseman is not eligible to return until May 30.

Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…

Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…

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…

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…

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…
