Let me preface this by saying that I despised Ned Yost and thought Ken Macha was a clown, so it's going to take a lot for me to really dislike Ron Roenicke. He's just so superior to anything I've experienced in my short seven years as a Brewers fan that I probably give him way more leniency than I should. But by the inevitable end of tonight's game, I think I'm ready to admit that I'd like a chang...

Can't link Twitter from work, but 1250 AM's Doug Russell is reporting that a source says "Bob Brenly is close to agreeing to become the next Brewers Manager."  Brenly in the past has compared Miller Park to minor league stadiums and two seasons ago openly advocated a pitcher throwing at Ryan Braun. W hen one of Macha's main problems was his inability to be close to Braun and Fielder, I'm thinki...

I have always found myself very apathetic about Macha. I could never muster the energy to hate him, as I did Yost. And he never struck me as remotely likable. He never seemed to warrant strong emotions. While you could always count on Yost for a good rant at an ump, it was an event is Ken left the dugout. Yost was combative with reporters while Macha often seemed resigned. Yost was half a step fr...

ESPN.com is reporting that Ken Macha complained to a baseball official that Brewers' hitters, who have been hit more than any other team in baseball, are getting hit by too many pitches.   Not sure what complaining to an unnamed official will accomplish, but the article goes on to say that Macha also met with Braves' manager Bobby Cox about the issue....

After the abysmal four game series loss to the San Francisco Giants, Ken Macha's leash was probably the shortest its been in his tenure as the Brewers' Manager. But his team bailed him out with three straight one-run wins over the Pirates (including two walk-offs) The Pirates proved to be the cure for what ails ya as Ryan Braun broke out of his slump while he and Corey Hart had walk-off hits on Fr...

Using the excuse that his career track record outweighs his poor pre-season performance, Jeff Suppan has been named the Brewers� 5th starter today. He will do a rehab assignment on Friday in Appleton with the Timber Rattlers and is likely to pitch Wednesday at Chicago, say Haudricourt and McCalvy. � In his comments on the move, manager Ken Macha seemed to say a lot without saying anything. He d...

Brewers were close to three-team deadline deal  from Adam McCalvy's blogThe Brewers were so close to completing what general manager Doug Melvin called a "big," three-team trade for a pitcher ahead of Friday's nonwaiver Trade Deadline that Ken Macha tuned into the MLB Network in the visiting manager's office at PETCO Park and waited to see the news break.It never did.The deal fizzled, and the pit...

Jeff Suppan has an oblique strainNo one out there is happy with the fact that Jeff Suppan is in our rotation and at more millions than I care to go research right now. I certainly don't wish him ill, but if this is what it takes to be rid of that albatross, I'm not sure I can be upset. That being said, we can't find someone to replace Dave Bush - what the hell will we do for another starter? Clear...

They are not even words to describe the crapfest that is happening on my TV right now. Brewers pitchers have given up two grand slams to the frickin' Washington Nationals. Both to Josh Willingham.The Nationals are 30-68, have the worst record in baseball and we just gave up six runs to them in the fifth followed by seven runs in the sixth.It has now been twenty-one games since we've won two games ...
