Brewers pitcher Will Smith ejected after pine tar is spotted on arm

In the seventh inning of Thursday’s Brewers-Braves, Milwaukee reliever Will Smith was ejected in the seventh inning after Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez spotted some pine tar on Smith’s arm. The umpiring crew conferred, spotted the pine tar on Smith, and booted him from the game. Smith’s infraction wasn’t nearly as blatant as Michael Pineda’s violation last year, in which...

Counsell goes with an unusual lineup

  Those watching the Brewers on Thursday may have noticed that Luis Sardinas was batting ninth while starting pitcher Matt Garza was hitting eighth. While having a pitcher bat eighth isn't unheard of, it certainly is rare. So why did Brewers manager Craig Counsell – a relatively new manager – opt for the unique strategy? “Like I've said before, Carlos [Gomez] has a lot to...

Scooter Gennett Demoted from Kids Club?

With Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett’s recent demotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the diminutive player also may have lost his place as the face of the team’s “Kids Club.” Earlier this month an email was sent out advertising the benefits of the Kids Club, which does have its merits to be sure.  It’s interesting, though, that after being prominently featured in...

After April’s Debacle, There is Hope for Brewers

Photo credit Copyright Robby White, Madison, WI As the Brewers broke spring camp in early April, there was, as with all other MLB teams optimism for a great season. For the Brewers, that optimism seemed to wane as the Crew lost on Opening Day 10-0 to the Rockies and went into freefall mode. The powerful on paper lineup of the Brewers couldn’t hit their way out of a wet paper bag...

Gennett sent to Triple-A

  In what was somewhat of a shocker the Brewers optioned second baseman Scooter Gennett to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday. "Craig [Counsell] and i talked to him last night in the hotel room, and just told him he needed to go down and get his entire game together, both offense and defense," Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told Brewers.com. "He understood. He took it fine...

WATCH: Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez Hit in the Head With 97-MPH Fastball

Sunday was a good day as well as a bad one for New York Mets rookie pitcher Noah Syndergaard. Good in that he notched his first MLB victory with a 5-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. It was bad in that he lost control of a fastball and ended up nailing Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez in the head with a pitch (97 MPH). Amazingly GOmez was able to walk off on his own and word is...

Segura just wanted a chance to play

  Earlier in the week the Brewers placed shortstop Jean Segura on the 15-day Disabled List with a fractured finger. However, the injury was not serious and the shortstop believes he could have played through it and helped his team. “I mean, I understand,” They want to keep you healthy or whatever,” Segura told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “At some points, you can't dictate...

MMO Game Recap: Mets 14, Brewers 1

The Mets (21-16) defeated the Milwaukee Brewers (13-24) by a score of 14-1 Saturday night. Jacob deGrom had perhaps his best stuff all season tonight while Matt Garza had quite the opposite. The reigning NL Rookie of The Year pitched six innings while giving up one run, striking out six and walking one. He is now 4-4 on the year. DeGrom helped his own cause in the 2nd. After a double...

Report: Brewers seem “especially interested” in trading Matt Garza

Even though they are playing better under new manager Craig Counsell, the Milwaukee Brewers are likely to be sellers at this years trade deadline. They have attractive trade pieces such as Jonathan Lucroy and Jean Segura, but they don’t seem too interested in moving them. One player to keep an eye on in trade discussions is Matt Garza. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com...

Milwaukee Brewers: Addressing the trade rumors

At 12-23 and 12.5 games behind division-leading St. Louis, the Milwaukee Brewers already look dead in the water in May. Analysts like Ken Rosenthal and Buster Olney say it’s likely the Brewers will go into rebuilding mode this season, and I am inclined to agree with them. As a fan, it hurts to see these struggles continue. The team’s latest series against he White Sox seemed...

Sardinas Callup First Official Glimpse into Gallardo Trade

A report from Todd Rosiak of the Journal Sentinel details how shortstop Luis Sardinas will be called up from the minor leagues to replace Jean Segura, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a finger injury. Obviously yet another injury to a starting player is bad news for the Brewers, who just can’t seem to keep their projected starters on the field, among other issues holding the...

Bob Uecker was stuck inside the broadcast booth at Miller Park

Baseball legend and longtime Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker got stuck in the broadcast booth last night when the handle to the door broke off.  With the Brewers at 9-19 and having the worst record in baseball, apparently nothing is safe at Miller Park. If you think this sounds like a scene that should be from Major League, you’re probably right. The post Bob Uecker...

Counsell gets first win as manager, is the right man for the job

New Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell took over the helm on a tough day Monday, as his club had to face the phenomenal Clayton Kershaw.

Brewers fire Ron Roenicke — Who’s Next?

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was rewarded for his team’s first series win this season by getting fired on Sunday night. Of course, when you’re winning your first series of the season in May, it should be no mystery as to why you’re getting canned.

Milwaukee Brewers: Can a season be lost in April?

Rough starts in MLB aren’t usually a big deal. Even if you lose eight of your first 10 games, there are still over 150 left to play. But what if the entire month turns out like that? For the Milwaukee Brewers, such was their April. It mercifully came to an end on Thursday, with their record an abysmal 5-17, the worst mark in all of baseball. And while they won’t be this bad...

How worried should Brewers fans be about Ryan Braun?

We’re only a little over two weeks into the 2015 season but Ryan Braun has been having some pretty might struggles at the plate. He’s only hitting 238/273/310 with a 2.3% walk rate. He only just hit his first home run of the season on Monday. After the suspension and especially the thumb injury people are understandably concerned about him. But how worried should Brewers...
