Reds-Brewers Preview

Bombs away for Brewers in interleague play

Yeah, we know it has been a tough year for the Milwaukee Brewers, with playoff hopes being quashed early, a manager fired and several players traded. But despite all that, the Brewers have been playing well over the past two months and there's reason to believe that will continue in a brief two-game set at Cleveland. When it comes to interleague play, Milwaukee has the advantage...

Taylor Jungmann and Diminishing Marginal Utility

When faced with batters on base, Milwaukee Brewers righty Taylor Jungmann goes to his sinker more and throws lower in the zone. He hasn’t given up a home run on the sinker, and the pitch produces ground balls nearly three-quarters of the time. So why doesn’t Jungmann go to the sinker more often? “What makes the sinker better is that I don’t throw it as much,” Jungmann...

Milwaukee Brewers: A wish list for September

Come September 1, the MLB rosters will expand from the usual 25 to 40 players, allowing everyone on a team’s 40-man roster to come play on the big league team. For the Brewers, that means some younger guys will get some big league action to give the coaching staff a sense of what they have to work with for the next season. I personally cannot wait for that day to come, so here’s...

Braun now all-time leader, but who is Brewers' greatest home-run hitter?

So Ryan Braun is the Brewers' all-time leader in home runs. He's hit more moonshots in a Milwaukee uniform than anyone else in the history of the franchise. That much you already knew. But he's been here nine years, played in over a thousand games and accumulated more than 4,600 at bats. And the guy he passed to claim the top spot on the list, Robin Yount, was here for 20 years,...

Q&A with Jimmy Nelson, the Brewers emerging ace

Jimmy Nelson has emerged as Milwaukee’s best starter thanks to a pair of tweaks. The 26-year-old righty has unleashed a spike curveball and tightened up his delivery. The results are striking. Nelson leads Brewers hurlers in punch outs, wins, and innings, and his 3.61 ERA is as solid as his 6-foot-6, 245-pound frame. Nelson discussed his adjustments, as well as his repertoire...

Ryan Braun's HRs: By the numbers

Ryan Braun became the Milwaukee Brewers' all-time home run leader Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park, passing Robin Yount. Yount held the record for nearly 22 years. At one point it seemed as though Prince Fielder could have overtaken him (Fielder finished with 230 as a Brewer) and really Braun could hold the record for just as long as Yount, if not longer, especially since he could...

Will the Brewers Make an August Trade?

With the Dodgers reportedly acquiring Chase Utley from the Phillies Wednesday, it appears a ripe time to ponder whether the Brewers will make any deals before the waiver-trade deadline at the end of August. At the beginning of the month, starter-turned-bullpen-arm Kyle Lohse looked like the most suitable candidate to be traded before September 1, although his terrible performances...

They lost a chunk of their team at the trade deadline, including star Carlos Gomez, and general manager Doug Melvin is out of a job. Who knows what's to come once this season mercifully comes to an end. Well, Tuesday was a day to smile, at least before the Brew Crew lost 9-6 to the 70-loss...

StaTuesday: Brewers' soon-to-be franchise leader in HRs, Braun could be headed for 400

With his next home run, Ryan Braun will become the Milwaukee Brewers' all-time leader in long balls with 252. After hitting a grand slam in Sunday's win over the Phillies to tie franchise legend Robin Yount at 251, Braun is almost assured -- though, as they say, of course, you can't predict ball -- of taking the top spot. He's also almost assured of holding it for a very long time...
