MPD’s Guide To Life

There was a time in my life when Brewers baseball was the be-all, end-all of my life. It filled me with so much joy and so much excitement that there was nothing else I'd rather be watching/talking about/writing about/going to. Brewers baseball was my life and I loved it. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, those days are over and I've lost that loving feeling. Now it'...

Brewers Rumors: Luis Jimenez claimed off waivers to add third base depth

Reminder: Managers and Coaches Have Negligible Impact

Last week, stories inside and outside Brewers Nation reminded us that the effect coaches and managers have on the game is hard to figure. (Does anyone actually say Brewers Nation?)  News that longtime Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon chose to opt out of his contract surprised most MLB observers.  Closer to home, the Brewers announced they hired a new hitting coach – Darnell...

Rodriguez's future uncertain, but reliever wants to return to Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Francisco Rodriguez is used to uncertainty. At the end of the past two seasons, Rodriguez had no idea what his future would hold. He'd eventually land with the Milwaukee Brewers, but the veteran reliever has twice come to spring training with his role undefined. So when Rodriguez, a free agent following the World Series, walked off the Miller Park mound for the final...

Brewers Survey Questions on Team Direction More Interesting Than Answers

Yesterday, Noah Jarosh at Brew Crew Ball alerted us to a survey the Brewers sent to select fans on the team’s direction.  It’s not clear how fans were chosen to take the survey, but if you didn’t get it the entire thing can be read at the BCB post.  Although I assume my opinion doesn’t count for much in any area of life, it would have been nice to be one of the chosen. ...

Brewers Make Right Call By Retaining Ron Roenicke

Last Friday, Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin announced that Ron Roenicke will return to manage the team in 2015. It ended nearly two weeks of speculation about Roenicke’s job security following an astonishing September collapse by the Brewers. Despite holding the lead in the NL Central for a total of 150 days throughout the year, Milwaukee lost 22 of its final 31...

Farewell My Love. Farewell Rickie Weeks.

When the Brewers played their last game of 2014 it was also the last game that Rickie Weeks will play for the Brewers. To some this will be good riddance. To others it's been a long time coming. To me? It's the end of an era. Rickie Weeks has been my favorite Brewers since before he was a Brewer. It was Rickie Weeks being drafted number two overall that brought the Brewers...

Milwaukee Brewers: Roenicke remains

I was really impressed with how Mark Attanasio and Doug Melvin expressed frustration at the end of the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2014 season. It seemed like these guys, especially Attanasio, were going to clean house and find out which players and coaches want to win most. At the time, I expected a veritable purge of the coaching staff. Instead, what Brewers fans and I got was the retention...

THROWBACK THURSDAY: When Animals Hated Trevor Hoffman

I think the last remaining member of the "Trevor Hoffman is just having a slow start" bandwagon fell off yesterday and now we can all finally accept that Trevor Hoffman is done as a closer. He doesn't have it. He throws right down the middle and he doesn't fool anyone. Is there a person in the world that was honestly surprised that Glaus hit that homerun? I didn...

What Do We Know About Ryan Braun’s Unprecedented Thumb Fix?

Last week, Ryan Braun had a cryotherapy procedure at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles to heal his injured thumb. Today was supposed to be Braun’s follow-up appointment with his physician, Dr. Vernon Williams, although I have yet to see any new reports.  The news that Braun had taken steps to correct the injury was reassuring – not only because the 2011 MVP just concluded...

Milwaukee Brewers: Some final thoughts going into offseason

The Milwaukee Brewers were officially eliminated from playoff contention yesterday, and they lost the first game of Fan Appreciation weekend to the Chicago Cubs by a score of 6-4. Needless to say, it’s a dark time for Brewers fans. The once promising-looking season has now become a heap of bile in our collective throats. But I don’t want to dwell on the negative emotions encircling...

Milwaukee Brewers: October is out of reach

Missed opportunities and asinine decisions cost the Milwaukee Brewers another win last night, as they fell 3-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals in 13 innings. Kyle Lohse’s fantastic start last night went to waste. The maddening defeat knocked the Brewers back another game behind Pittsburgh in the Wild Card race to increase their gap to three and a half. While nine games still remain...
