Brewers Make Right Call By Retaining Ron Roenicke

Mike Fiers Should Stay In The Brewers’ Rotation

With Matt Garza slated to return to the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation in the not too distant future, manager Ron Roenicke will have to decide whether to keep Mike Fiers or Jimmy Nelson as a starter for the stretch run in September.

While decisions like these can leave a manager tossing and turning at night, the choice Roenicke must make upon Garza’s return is quite clear: keep Mike Fiers in the starting rotation.

Ned Yost, Kansas City Royals heading for a blue October

Nearly a month ago I inked a ranking of a dozen Major League Baseball managers whose jobs I considered to be on thin ice. As of now, the axe has not fallen anywhere, though things remain bleak for Walt Weiss in Colorado and Kirk Gibson in Arizona (and I’m not going to cry too hard when Gibson gets his pink slip).

Jonathan Lucroy Becoming the New Face of the Milwaukee Brewers

Thanks to his breakout 2014 season, Jonathan Lucroy is quickly supplanting Ryan Braun as the face of the Milwaukee Brewers franchise.

A dozen managers on MLB’s 2014 hot seat

Even with Mike Scioscia seemingly safe, there are still a lot of skippers in varying degrees of danger as baseball fast approaches its stretch run. Here is my ranking of 12 managers who may feel the seat starting to get warm, and one who may be the first casualty of 2014 as soon as this week.

2014 Milwaukee Brewers: Top 10 Wins of the First Half

The first half of the 2014 season has been quite eventful for the Milwaukee Brewers, as they’ve done everything from scoring three runs on a wild pitch to literally hitting the cover off of a baseball.

2014 Milwaukee Brewers Season Preview

The 2013 season was one to forget for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Yes, their 74-88 record fell short of expectations and was the franchise’s worst mark since 2004, but that doesn’t do justice to how much of a train-wreck their season actually was.

Report: Milwaukee Brewers sign Matt Garza for four years, $50 millon

According to multiple reports, including Ken Rosenthal of MLB Network and FOXSports.com, the Milwaukee Brewers have come to terms with 30-year old right handed pitcher Matt Garza. The deal is reportedly worth $52 million over four seasons, but the club has yet to confirm it.

Milwaukee restaurant group next in line to cut ties with Ryan Braun

Even though Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun tried to recoup some of the goodwill that he lost when he was suspended for 65 games this season by personally calling a number of Brewers season ticket holders, it looks like it’s a week where he will take one step forward but two steps back.

Ryan Braun should return the 2011 NL MVP trophy

Finally. Suspended Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun finally said something.

Braun admitted to a number of things, including being in denial, using a “cream and lozenge” and he also apologized to sample collector Dino Laurenzi Jr.

MLB’s PED Epidemic has ruined baseball role models

The Little League World Series is now on TV, and besides watching the game, the part that interests me the most is the children telling us who their favorite baseball player is before every game. My favorite player when I was in Little League was Mark Grace.

Report: Ryan Braun claimed Dino Laurenzi, Jr. was an anti-Semite

If you were still wondering just how despicable Ryan Braun’s actions were in the wake of his positive test for elevated levels of testosterone late in the 2011 baseball season, I think we may have finally hit rock bottom.
