Andrew Gruman's Oct. 21 Brewers mailbag

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions for our inaugural Milwaukee Brewers mailbag. The response was overwhelming, so I tried to answer the questions that were most frequently asked. Fans were most interested in the first-base situation, but other areas covered are the future of Carlos Gomez, the looming decision to bring back Yovani Gallardo, when to expect a new hitting coach...

Brewers Rumors: Aramis Ramirez wants to remain a Brewer

Without Aramis Ramirez, the Milwaukee Brewers would go from third base being a team strength to a major weakness.  Ramirez has proven throughout his time in Milwaukee and his entire career in the National League Central that he can be a big time run producer. But as both he and the team enter the offseason, things could get interesting. #456468418 / gettyimages.com Ramirez has...

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. ...

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...

Brewers Rumors: Adam LaRoche could head to Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers finished the 2014 season with a disappointing 82-80 record after a hot start the first few months of the season. A mediocre offense that ranked 15th in the Major Leagues in runs scored contributed to the downfall as the season progressed. One player who would provide a boost to the offense next season would be free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche, who likely...

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...

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...
