    Dear Chase: I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so alike. I’d like to meet you one day, it would be great to have a catch. I know I can’t throw as fast as you but I think you’d be impressed with my speed.

    Rickie Weeks doesn’t want to learn to play left field, even though it would get him off the bench.

  10. Carlos Gomez will bat leadoff for the Brewers

    Carlos Gomez Getty

    After dealing outfielder Norichika Aoki to the Royals in December, the Brewers were left without an ideal option for the leadoff spot, but manager Ron Roenicke has settled on his choice. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Roenicke announced today that Carlos Gomez will hit leadoff to begin the year. Jean Segura, who will now…

  11. The powerful, yet dysfunctional, Brewers lineup

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:23 PM EST

    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:…

  12. The Marlins are reportedly interested in Rickie Weeks

    Rickie Weeks Getty

    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Marlins are interested in a trade for Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks. Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors confirms the report. It’s an odd fit on the surface, as the Marlins just signed Rafael Furcal to a one-year deal last week to be their second baseman.…

  13. Rickie Weeks sidelined 4-6 months after hamstring surgery

    Aug 15, 2013, 5:17 PM EST

    Rickie Weeks AP

    Rickie Weeks was debating whether to try the rest-and-rehab route for his torn hamstring or go under the knife, and today he opted for surgery. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Dr. James Andrews did the honors–he works on things other than elbows and shoulders–and Weeks is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 months. Six…

  14. Rickie Weeks to undergo season-ending surgery on injured hamstring

    Aug 9, 2013, 11:55 PM EST

    rickie weeks getty

    Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks will miss the remainder of the 2013 season as he will undergo surgery on his injured left hamstring, reports Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Weeks suffered the injury in the eighth inning of Wednesday’s game against the Giants. It’s been a rough year for Weeks. His 2013 season…

  15. Brewers place Rickie Weeks on disabled list with hamstring strain

    Aug 8, 2013, 7:23 PM EST

    Rickie Weeks AP

    The last-place Brewers have been bit by the injury bug in a big way this year. And now it’s Rickie Weeks‘ turn. The Brewers announced this evening that Weeks has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The 30-year-old suffered the injury when he was running to first base on…

  16. You can still get a Braun jersey at the MLB.com shop

    Ryan Braun shirt

    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…

  17. Aramis Ramirez learned a baseball rule last night

    Jul 4, 2013, 12:00 PM EST

    aramis ramirez ap

    We noted a minor leaguer committed a Merkle’s Boner play the other day, not realizing that he had to advance to second base safely in order for the winning run to score.  Last night a major leaguer committed a mental miscue of his own.Actually, two major leaguers had miscues on the same play: Aramis Ramirez…

  18. Rickie Weeks won’t have to worry about more benchings

    Jun 27, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    rickie weeks getty

    Three weeks ago the Brewers called up Scooter Gennett and gave him regular playing time at second base in place of the slumping Rickie Weeks. Gennett started 10 times in a 16-game stretch beginning on June 3, but along the way Weeks caught fire. Weeks is hitting .435 with five homers and a 1.370 OPS…

  19. Rickie Weeks is on fire

    Jun 26, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    rickie-weeks-brewers2

    Rickie Weeks was so brutally bad in April and May that the Brewers called up Triple-A infielder Scooter Gennett and have been starting him at second base over Weeks in about half the games this month. Whether or not that motivated Weeks is unclear, but whatever the case he’s on an incredible tear that has…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  21. Brewers acquire Juan Francisco from Braves, call up Scooter Gennett

    Jun 3, 2013, 12:16 PM EST

    Royals Braves Basaeball

    Atlanta designated Juan Francisco for assignment last week and today the Braves traded him to the Brewers for minor leaguer Thomas Keeling. Milwaukee also called up second baseman Scooter Gennett from Triple-A. Francisco has been exclusively a third baseman in the majors, but given how awful the Brewers’ production has been at first base he…

  22. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 1, 2013, 6:52 AM EST

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 8, Nationals 1: That’s nine straight wins by the Braves over the Nats dating back to last season. Someone should ask Danny Espinosa if he’s impressed by the Braves yet. Tim Hudson notched his 200th career win. In pretty grand style, too: he homered and doubled in addition to pitching seven strong innings. Indians…

  23. The Brewers are one awful baseball team right now

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:54 PM EST

    Kyle Lohse

    First of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitches, even though Ryan Braun can’t play because of a neck injury. That leaves them with a three-man bench that just doesn’t work in National League games. Second of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitchers. Why on earth is John Axford pitching a second inning in…

  24. Brewers sign Yuniesky Betancourt

    Mar 26, 2013, 4:16 PM EST

    Yuniesky Betancourt

    Released from his minor-league contract by the Phillies last week, Yuniesky Betancourt has agreed to a major-league contract with the Brewers. Betancourt played for Milwaukee in 2011, hitting .252 with a ghastly .271 on-base percentage and .652 OPS in 152 games as the starting shortstop, and yet that didn’t keep the Brewers from bringing him…
