a brewer hanky

Maybe I've listened to the Pharrell Williams song "Happiness" 30 too many times. And I used to think I had some sort of musical taste? I cut myself some slack. The Brewers are 6-2, in first...

Ryan Braun's future wife

The title of this post is cheating. Shame on me, but it also speaks to my point. Braun strived for perfect body athleticism and never lacked confidence. Braun's future wife Larisa Fraser did the...

Just another Brewer's fan

When I attend ceremonies where a sermon is likely, I reach for The Official Baseball Rules I keep in my jacket pocket at all times. It kills time without disturbing anyone. Last week I attended...

everybody would love to play in st. louis?

Most nights I don't really care who the announcers are, but last night I wanted the Cardinals. I wanted to hear all about them and I was not disappointed. I laughed more than once. First of all, a...

The Brewers are going for it the right way

When it comes to Brewers starting pitching for 2013, there is very little to discuss and debate. Other than Yovani Gallardo and maybe Marco Estrada, it's not even clear who will make up the staff...

Better Than Your Average Counsell!

Take a summer stroll through any park and find a baseball game. Watch players step to the plate, dig territorial dirt, and shake some lumber. In the major leagues, choosing a batting stance is as...

The Chemistry Contradiction

If I earned a dollar every time I heard a fan say, "Chemistry is the most overrated thing in professional sports," I'd plan a vacation. Yet, the cliché seems kind of true. What really gets me is...

An August Ticker Tape Parade

On Sunday, a swirl of rain dumped on Montreal. It didn't really change my activities. I watched the Brewer's game and once again, felt satisfied by the outcome. I haven't had any difficulty...

Brewer Shutouts: Can They Be Stopped?

**This post, first published on my blog, (http://brokenbats.wordpress.com/) seemed appropriate for Brew Crew Ball in the hopes of generating a discussion.** In order for an airplane to reach a...

Road Woe World Series Winners!

Prince Fielder's 3-run, opposite field, All-Star homerun was definitely not an "oh my goodness" blast, but it stands a chance to be the biggest homerun of the year; especially if Miller Park hosts...

Broadcasters Posing as Clairvoyants

I always considered a baseball broadcaster's primary responsibility to paint with words, to describe what he saw happening on the diamond. And if it happened to be a television broadcast rather...

If Gamel's called up, then what?

I don't want to give up on Casey McGehee. I don't want to see him on the bench and hear discussions about him transforming back into a pumpkin. I love remembering that the Brewer's 2010 player of...

Greinke seems ready for something big..

I was having a hard time deciding what was more spectacular; Braun's pinch-hit blast at the Fish a few weeks ago or Axford's gas at Fenway last weekend, but then I got depressed by all the loses...

A Case For Prince as Leadoff Hitter

He’s big and mean and bad to the bone. He’s the Milwaukee Brewers Prince of Swat and he just might be a viable option as the 2011 Brewer’s leadoff batter. In 2010 Prince Fielder led off an inning...

Greinke Bandwagon Misses The Mark

The difference between Zach Greinke’s social phobia and what might appear to be fashionable insouciance cannot be overstated. The new Brewer ace will always struggle with a very real and...

Yuni Who? Is shortstop really that important?

What the shortstop position lacks in name (short), it makes up six-fold in importance or so we are led to believe. On average, the man in the hole is involved in a very disproportionate amount of...

LOGAN SCHAFER'S SPRING FLING?!!!

Don't mention the law of averages to a young prospect. He can't hear you. He's repeating over and over Ken Kesey's timeless advice...."You  are as big as you  believe you  are."  The spring...

Pass The Hat For Prince

He's 5 feet-11 inches, 270 pounds, backs down to no one, and seldom takes a day off. Scouts once overlooked him...called him too fat, but six years into his young career, he's bigger than anyone...

Why Brewers Pitching May Get Even Better!
