Can Milwaukee Brewers fans trust Mark Attanasio’s comments?

I hope this is the final time I have to recap this story, but with a few painful hours remaining on the frustrating disappointment of a season the Milwaukee Brewers have put together, it needs to be remembered. 2014 ended with the Brewers collapsing in the final 30 days of the campaign, throwing away a 150-day reign atop the National League Central. One day later, Owner Mark Attanasio...

Ryan Braun’s Much-Needed Resurgence

Let one thing be clear: I understand why many dislike Ryan Braun. Back when he was found to have violated MLB’s substance abuse policy, particularly just after winning the NL MVP and having an important hand in leading his Milwaukee Brewers to the NLCS, it was difficult to not feel cynical. As we all know, he won his appeal. The day that decision was announced, Braun was awfully...

Padres host Brewers in final home game of 2015

Beginning with his major league debut in June, Taylor Jungmann was one of the NL's top rookie starters for his first three-plus months. The Milwaukee Brewers right-hander has hardly looked like the same pitcher in recent outings but will get the chance to end his season on a positive note Thursday against the short-handed San Diego Padres. Jungmann went 9-5 with a 2.42 ERA in his...

Padres host Brewers in final night game of season Wed. night

The Milwaukee Brewers decided last week to go with an all-rookie rotation for the remainder of the season, and so far, the kids are all right. Milwaukee will look to pick up a third straight victory behind a rookie pitcher Wednesday night against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. This plan was more of a matter of circumstance than it was by design for the Brewers. Jimmy Nelson...
