Milwaukee Brewers: Jeremy Jeffress owns the bullpen

The bottom of the ninth inning with everything on the line is what we baseball fans live for. Milwaukee Brewers closer Jeremy Jeffress has earned the right to be the “man” in the top of the ninth inning. The 28-year-old is currently tied for seventh in all of Major League Baseball in saves with 21. His ERA has been under three for the majority of the 2016 season and he has blown...

What are the Milwaukee Brewers getting in Corey Ray?

The Milwaukee Brewers have been locking up their draft picks this year. That includes the recent signing of the No. 5 overall pick, Corey Ray. He is an outfielder capable of playing all three positions and is expected to be able to produce immediately for the Brew Crew. The Brewers have a solid outfield already, including All-Star Ryan Braun. However, with multiple players currently...

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...

WATCH: Joc Pederson crashes into wall, leaves game with injury

The last thing the Los Angeles Dodgers need right now is more health concerns. Not too long after it was announced that Clayton Kershaw will have his ailing back further examined, young center fielder Joc Pederson gave his team’s fans a scare in the bottom of the eighth on Tuesday against the Brewers. "@FlyByKnite: This is how Joc Pederson got hurt. pic.twitter.com/BTKjtb0p24...

The Brewers By Elo Rating

FiveThirtyEight followed their fascinating NBA and NFL franchise value Elo Ratings by introducing such ratings for MLB franchises. Their published results are fascinating because they blend zero-sum judgments of each team (when the Brewers beat the Nationals, for example, the Nationals lost exactly the same number of points that the Brewers gained) with weighted predictions of team...

Game 75 Recap: Nationals 3 Brewers 2

Best Play: Although the Brewers couldn’t score off Tanner Roark, they certainly tried — or, at least, their third baseman did. Leading off the seventh inning, Aaron Hill crushed the first pitch he saw to deep right for a ground rule double. (Odd trivia: Two innings prior, Hill had a first-pitch double to lead off.) With the Brewers trailing 1-0 and possessing only nine outs to...

Revisiting the Awful 2002 Brewers

Fourteen years ago today, the Brewers lost 5-2 to the Cardinals to fall to 27-50. Cardinals starter Woody Williams threw 7.2 innings, struck out seven, and was working on a shutout until Matt Stairs tagged him for a leadoff home run in the top of the eighth inning. Milwaukee starter Jamey Wright gave up five runs in as many innings to see his record fall to 1-6 and his ERA rise to...

Why Pitchers Should Avoid Cardio Workouts

In a recent baseball training study, researchers from the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee recorded in-game heart rates of 16 professional baseball starting pitchers in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. The study showed that the pitchers' heart rates varied slightly from inning to inning, and that "inning-dependent psychological factors" caused...

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. Their intention isn’t to bring false hope, even if they sometimes do. Their intention isn’t to tease, even though they surely do. Their intention isn’t to ring hollow, but there’s...

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...
