Face of the Franchise: 1974

The Brewers finished 18th in winning percentage in 1974, and the 18th ranked player in WAR was center fielder Ken Berry.

Face of the Franchise: 1973

The Brewers finished 20th in winning percentage in 1973, and the 20th ranked player in WAR was rookie outfielder Wilbur Howard.

Face of the Franchise: 1969

At Mr. Leam's suggestion, I will present a short series in parts showing what he calculates is the 'Face of the Franchise' for the Brewers. The way this works is we figure out how the team ranked...

Positives: A Rebuilt Bullpen

Trying to focus on positive things and giving credit where it's due, Doug Melvin completely rebuilt the Brewer bullpen this offseason and his work has so far been a big success. Last season the...

Playing Yuni is like starving children in Africa

Ok, at this point we know that Yunieski Betancourt is a bad baseball player. In spite of the much-higher-than-minimum contract that he was offered in the offseason that is filled with incentives...

2013 Small Sample Sizes

With the hubbub over our favorite golden-handed utility man and his astounding early dinger display, I thought I would sift through the number thus far to find the exceptional data points that come...

The decline of Rickie Weeks

Rickie, when he's hot, is an awesome player. Offensively. When he's not hot, he looks completely lost and terrible. He's always been streaky, so it's tough to get a good look at him to judge...

Shortstops Worse Than Yuni

I've been a pretty big critic of Yuniesky Betancourt over the years, having a good time poking fun at Yuni's tendency to swing at the first pitch, his nonchalant wave at ground balls just outside...

Who would you elect for the Hall of Fame?

There are some pretty big names on the ballot for the first time this year, and with them comes a lot of controversy. Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens all appear for the first time,...

Tommy John surgery. Sounds like an injury sustained while with the Orioles.

Buster Posey and the "clean MVP" myth

A lot of people are looking to vote for someone other than Ryan Braun for MVP. I don't blame them, they just heard the word "steroids" tossed around in the offseason and were too stupid to...

The possibility of a repeat MVP

The MVP award is a rare treasure that many great players and Hall of Famers have never achieved. Only one is granted each year for each league, and the competition is so fierce that a number of...

Not your daddy's HR king

Forgive me, I grew up in an era where little guys stole bases, skinny guys hit doubles, and the big fat guys with mustaches hit home runs. If little guys hit homers it was a wind-aided fluke, and...

The Undisputed MVP

I was getting tired of listening to the sports news talking heads mention for the umpeenth time about Ryan Braun taking away the MVP trophy from Matt Kemp, and I thought I would try to take a look...

Now Yahoo is just trying to piss us off (Matt Kemp)

6

Looking for controversy with link titles like "What might have been for Matt Kemp" and "Matt Kemp: I should have won MVP" Yahoo Sports is trying to be as asinine as possible and trying to lure Kemp into badmouthing Braun. If a website had nuts, Yahoo's should be Hyatted. To his credit, Kemp played it fairly cool.

Getting into a Groove

With a pitching staff like ours there's no guarantee that anyone put out on the mound will escape without giving up at least one run. Axford is supposed to be the closer, but he's been leaving the...

A Quick Look at the Bullpen

It's pretty easy to pick out what's wrong with this year's team. Rickie has been terrible (although recently it appears that he's fixed whatever ailed him). We're decimated by injuries. The...

The Real Firemen

As a followup to the Happily Ever Axford post, I wanted to take a look at what happens to inherited runners (IR) and how often they score (IS). Axford is a great closer, but almost all the time he...

Happily Ever Axford

Rain or shine, one thing is near-certain: If you turn a lead over to The Ax, you keep it. Closers are often maligned by the statistical community as an overrated role, and the money they make is...

Playoffs already out of reach?

Comparing this season's record at May 25 to previous Brewer seasons, no club has ever started as poorly as the 2012 squad (or worse) and ended up with a .500 record or better. The closest...

Fielder: It's all about health

So we're in the second half of January now, and Prince Fielder is not yet signed as a free agent. I think it's probably pretty easy for Scott Boras to get people interested in having Fielder be a...
