Prince Fielder has made the surprising move of agreeing to terms with a team his dad played for - the Detroit Tigers. The deal is reportedly for 9 years and $214 million. The Tigers are a surprising suitor since they have Miguel Cabrera at first base. They've already said that Prince will play first, so Miggy is moving. The Brewers will get a compensation pick for losing FA Fielder - the Tigers' 1...

Ryan Braun beat out Matt Kemp to win the NL MVP for 2011! I'm honestly a little shocked. Kemp had pretty much swept all the other awards and so it seemed like Braun was something of a long shot. But he won handily, receiving 388 points to Kemp's 332.  Braun was voted in first or second place on every ballot, which might be an even bigger accomplishment. There was no one that doubted that he was o...

LF Ryan Braun and 1B Prince Fielder won Silver Slugger Awards from the MLB tonight. The awards, presented by Louisville Slugger, are awarded to the top hitters at each position in each league. It is the second Slugger of Fielder's career. He won it in 2007, but it's going to Albert Pujols each of the last three years. It is actually the fourth consecutive Silver Slugger for Braun. The last NL outf...

Well if you ask the St. Louis Cardinals, the Brewers are brash, cocky, mean and generally disrespectful of all things baseball. But in the SI.com player poll that was released last week, Chris Carpenter and Albert Pujols were ranked the seventh and eighth meanest players, while Nyjer Morgan was ranked ninth and Prince Fielder was ranked 13th. The poll was taken of 215 other major league baseball...

Prince Fielder has become the highest-ever paid Brewer. He signed a one-year, $15.5 million dollar contract to avoid his final year of arbitration with the club. The previously highest-paid Brewer was Zach Greinke, at $13.5 million. Prince's contract includes a $100,000 bonus if he's named MVP, as well as $75,000 for coming in second and $50,000 for coming in third in MVP voting. He receives $50...

Ryan Braun leads all NL outfielders, though only by a narrow margin, and looks to become the first Brewer to be elected to three consecutive All-Star Games.   But Atlanta's Jason Heyward and Dodger Andre Ethier are close on his heels.   Go here: http://milwaukee.brewers.mlb.com/mil/fan_forum/allstar_offers.jsp to cast your vote for the Brewers. Prince Fielder is third among NL first basemen and ...

I may be the only woman in the greater Wisconsin area to say it, but JJ Hardy never really did it for me and frankly I’m more than a little sick of the implication that I’d be against the trade merely because I’ll miss Hardy’s baby blues. A lot of fans are really against this trade, but I can’t get too up in arms about it. Hardy was on his way out the door and the Brewers were tryin...

Considering what a sad season it's been, Braun and Fielder have really racked up the records. According to @Haudricourt on twitter, Ryan Braun has four games to get four hits and become the first Brewer with 200 hits since Paul Molitor in 1991....
