It was an unfortunate start, as Davies failed to make it out of the fifth inning for just the second time this season. Davies had also been on a nice 5 start run, where he struck out 36 batters and only walked 6. This start, Davies primarily struggled...

Scooter Gennett providing great fantasy value at 2B

Three years from now, fantasy owners are going to look back on the 2016 season and call it, “The year of the second baseman”. What has been known as a shallow offensive position in the past, second base is suddenly the deepest position in fantasy realms. Entering play on June 30, 12 different second basemen had at least 10 homers, including six with more than 13. Last year, only...

Jimmy Nelson is Not a Franchise Cornerstone

About a month ago, I heard something on a Brewers radio broadcast that gave me an idea for a post. I believe it was Jeff Levering who said, “Jimmy Nelson is having a great season.” He really emphasized the “great.” When I heard this, my reaction was, ‘No, he is not.’ I shouldn’t just pick on Levering. A month ago it was not uncommon to hear people say how well Jimmy...

Ramon Flores Is Coming Around

Back in November, the Milwaukee acquired outfielder Ramon Flores from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Luis Sardinas. At first glance, that move seemed inconsequential enough — one fringe major leaguer for another. But Flores’ minor-league track record suggests he may not always be inconsequential. He hit a strong .308/.401/.454 as a 23-year-old in Triple-A last year and...

Wily Peralta, Potential, and ‘What If?’

Next year will be better. He looked good when he was healthy. He’s still pretty young. What if he finally puts it all together? In any sport, every sport, you’ve undoubtedly heard these words.

A Brewers Prospect and His Law School Application

Just over a month ago, I led one of my Sunday Notes columns with Jon Perrin and his microscopic walk rate. At the time, the 22-year-old Milwaukee Brewers prospect had issued just one free pass in 36 innings. He had 47 strikeouts. A few days later, Perrin was promoted from low-A Wisconsin to high-A Brevard County. His numbers with the Manatees aren’t quite as eye-popping, but they’re...

Report: Ryan Braun on the Giants’ radar

The San Francisco Giants head into their three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers this week with a 38-26 record in a comfy five-game lead in the National League West. They do so having lost outfielder Hunter Pence for a substantial amount of time due to a hamstring injury (more on that here). Even before Pence went down with injury, the team was rumored to be in the market...
