BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Brewers C literally hits cover off the ball

Announcers like to say that guys “hit the cover off the ball” all the time, but how often is that literally what happened? Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado did just that against Charlie Morton and the Pirates. While he didn’t exactly hit it hard — he pounded it into the ground — the ball fell apart as it reached poor Pedro Alvarez, who had to try to throw a ball...

Rule 5 is Catch-22 for Brewers, Wei-Chung Wang

After not pitching for over two weeks, Wei-Chung Wang walked to a big-league mound for the first time and tossed a scoreless inning. Just three days later, he was torched for six hits and six runs in an ugly outing. Such is the life of a Rule 5 draft pick trying to make the jump from rookie ball to the major leagues. The Milwaukee Brewers knew what they were getting into when they...

Relievers Wooten, Wang struggle late in loss to Pirates

A quick glance at the final score would make it hard to believe the Milwaukee Brewers were tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates heading to the seventh inning Thursday night. After Yovani Gallardo grinded through six innings to keep the game tied at 2-2 without his best stuff, relievers Rob Wooten and Wei-Chung Wang got lit up for nine runs in two innings in a 11-2 loss to the Pirates...

Daily Fantasy - Start Yovani Gallardo

The Milwaukee Brewers own the best record in baseball at 11-4, and their pitching staff has played a large part in that. Opposing teams have scored just 40 runs (33 earned) on Milwaukee, which gives them the best ERA in the MLB at 2.17. Tonight, Yovani Gallardo will matchup with the Pittsburgh Pirates Edinson Volquez again (same matchup as their last start). Gallardo left the previous...

When Matt Garza Becomes Wario Matt Garza –

Welcome to this season’s first official Brewers Theme Music event! As you may or may not remember from last season, this is a semi-regular feature of mine where I base an instrumental (in most cases, although, not all. There was that embarrassing singing attempt out of spring training) on either a player, possibly a mascot or group of mascots, an event on or off the field, or,...

What the heck do you do with Ryan Braun?!

A hot topic ever since his one-man assault on Kyle Kendrick and the boo-birds of Philadelphia just over a week ago, what to expect from Ryan Braun in 2014 is a true quandary for the fantasy baseball community, and one which shows no signs of being answered soon. The volatile combination of sensational past performance, a lingering injury, and his return from a 65-game PED suspension...

Pair of monster home runs put finishing touch on Cards' win in Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers were the hottest team in the majors two days ago. Then they ran into the Cardinals. A strong start from Shelby Miller and offensive contributions from just about everyone in the lineup led the Cardinals to a 6-1 victory on Tuesday night, which followed a 4-0 victory on Monday. The Brewers, who came into the series on a nine-game winning streak, have been limited...

Brewers’ Matt Garza Nearly Loses It On Mound After Home Run (GIF)

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Matt Garza is an excitable individual, known for being a bit fiery a times on the mound. Monday was one of those times. The Brewers were trailing the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 when Garza surrendered a three-run, sixth-inning home run to Jon Jay, icing what ended up being a 4-0 Cardinals win. To say Garza was mad at himself over the homer would be an understatement...

Matt Garza Turns Into Very Angry, Crazy Man After Allowing Home Run

Things are going pretty well for the Milwaukee Brewers these days, riding a nine-game winning streak and MLB-best 10-2 record into Monday. But you wouldn’t have known that by the reaction of Matt Garza, after the Brewers’ pitcher allowed a three-run homer to the St. Louis Cardinals’ Jon Jay in the seventh inning of Monday night’s game at Miller Park: Now, every game against...
