Apparently the trade rumors that surfaced with Corey Hart's name this trade deadline left Corey worried he'd be shipped somehwere else, so he took the initiative and had his agent tell Doug Melvin and the Brewers that he wants to stay a Brewer for life. In doing so, he'll likely take a decent sized pay cut. Prior to his move to first base this season, the player most comparable to Hart was Andre E...

We knew it was coming, but that doesn't make it any less sad - the Brewers announced less than an hour before last night's game that they had traded Zack Greinke to the Los Angeles Angels for shortstop Jean Segura and AA pitchers John Hellweg and Ariel Pena. Segura had been in the majors with LA for just about a week covering for some injuries, but he will be headed back to AA with the Brewers. Wi...

Less than two weeks after shutting down Zack Greinke for a start because of over-use, Tyler Thornburg left tonight's game after being put in for a second inning in back to back games. Thornburg spent the early parts of the season as a starter and is claiming fatigue on the arm, saying he's not used to the bounce-back needed to be a relief pitcher. But the real question is, why did he get sent back...

For weeks we've been hearing about how the first nine games out of the All-Star Break were the most important of the Brewers season. While many fans were ready to give up on the Brewers more than a few weeks ago, there were those who felt that if the Brewers could come storming out of the ASB, where they had nine games against division opponents, they could be back in the race. It started out well...

The problem with an 8+ hour school day and an hour commute home means that I'm way, way late on this news and now there's way more speculation than there is news. Here's what I know: Zack Greinke has been scratched from his Wednesday start against the Cardinals and will be completely skipped in the rotation, not pitching again til the Phillies series in 11 days. Ron Roenicke and Doug Melvin are...

Heading into the start of play today, the Brewers projected five starting pitchers - Zach Greinke, Yovanni Gallardo, Shaun Marcum, Chris Narveson and Randy Wolf - had a combined Spring Training ERA of 2.43. Not bad, folks, not bad. Marcum, who had been benched until yesterday with shoulder issues/soreness, made his debut yesterday, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out three over thr...

Well it looks like all those stories on Wednesday were for naught, because Zach Greinke has apparently convinced manager Ron Roenicke that he'll be ok to pitch on Sunday, despite throwing 75 pitches in Wednesday's game. Roenicke had said earlier today that it would be up to Greinke to show Roenicke that he was physically able to do it and convince Roenicke to let him pitch on the short rest. While...

The Brewers' magic number to clinch home-field advantage and the #2 seed in the playoffs is 2. Any combination of Brewers wins and Diamondbacks losses that equals two will give the Brewers the #2 seed in the playoffs and home-field advantage. But, because the Braves and Cardinals are fighting for the NL Wild Card, the Brewers won't know who their opponent will be, even if they do clinch home-field...

I'm not sure why I'm still sitting here watching the Brewers lose to the Yankees 7-0 in the 4th. Greinke made it just two innings. Though the official scorebook gives all those runs to Greinke as earned, Nyjer Morgan and Casey McGehee made questionable defensive plays that cost Greinke outs and made him work harder. I have to admit that I'm still on the Suzie Sunshine train with Greinke. I exp...

Why is it that baseball slumps always seem worse than slumps in every other sport? Is it the daily losing that gets to our psyche? That daily reminder of suckitude that doesn’t allow you to forget about the losing?   Baseball has the longest season and therefore stretches of losing have less of an impact than in other sports, yet I never take a string of losses so hard as when my baseball te...
