    Alex Gonzalez

    Here’s a streak that might hold up all year: Alex Gonzalez left Saturday’s game with a right knee injury, making it the fourth straight game in which a Brewers starter has gotten hurt. Tuesday: Mat Gamel (torn ACL – out for the season) Wednesday:  Ryan Braun (Achilles’ tendon – returned Saturday) Friday: Carlos Gomez (hamstring…

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun followed up his monster three-homer game Monday by swiping his 100th career base Tuesday, but in doing so he injured his Achilles’ tendon. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that there was some thought given to having Braun sit out last night to rest the injury, but instead he started the game and then…

    UPDATE: General manager Doug Melvin announced that Gamel has a torn ACL, which likely means season-ending surgery. Very tough break for a player who waited to get his shot. ========== Mat Gamel left yesterday’s game after injuring his right knee chasing a foul ball and now Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that the Brewers first…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: A Battered Brew Crew. The Big Question: Can the Brewers still be successful without their Prince? Milwaukee put it all…

  5. Scenes from Spring Training: Randomness at Brewers camp

    Yount Gamel

    I mentioned earlier that I’m in an impossibly good mood today. The park has a lot to do with it. Great weather of course. Just woke up on the right side of the bed somehow. And when I’m in a good mood I like to walk around and take pictures of stuff. Yes, I realize…

  6. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    The Question

    It was a long offseason, my friends. A light winter in these parts but a harsh one all the same. The usual offseason non-stories seemed even less-satisfying than normal. On a personal level, I spent many long, dark hours searching for meaning and happiness in a world that seemed uncompromising, unforgiving and indifferent to humanity.…

  7. Ryan Braun’s return puts Brewers on good footing in NL Central

    Feb 23, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers Ryan Braun slaps hands with teammate Rickie Weeks after hitting a two-run home run against the St. Louis Cardinals in the first inning of Game 1 of the MLB National League Championship Series baseball playoff game in Milwaukee

    In doing the Brewers’ edition of running down the rosters earlier this month, I presented two lineups: one with Ryan Braun and one without him for the 50 games he appeared likely to miss pending the appeal of his PED suspension. Needless to say, the one with the exonerated 2011 NL MVP looked a whole…

  8. Mat Gamel is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Tom Haudricourt is in Brewers camp, and he spoke with the man who is tasked with replacing Prince Fielder: Mat Gamel. What say you, Mat? Feel up to the task? Gamel is focused on the opportunity at hand to replace Prince Fielder. “I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m excited about my opportunity.”…

  9. Running down the rosters: Milwaukee Brewers

    With Prince Fielder‘s departure assured, the last thing the 2011 NL Central champion Brewers needed was to lose Ryan Braun for a third of the season. It’s likely to happen, though, even if his appeal is still pending. The rotation should be strong enough to keep the Brewers in the race while Braun is out,…

  10. MLB’s worst position situations: 2012 edition

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…

  11. Ike Davis is the NL’s second-best first baseman?

    Jan 24, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    Ike Davis, Miguel Montero

    With Albert Pujols and now Prince Fielder following Adrian Gonzalez to the American League, the NL has bled some remarkable talent at first base the last two winters. That’s one sure Hall of Famer and two more legitimate possibilities switching leagues while still in their primes. Left is Joey Votto and, well… Reds: Joey Votto…
