Having won 22 of their last 26 (yes, they've had just four losses in the month of August), the Brewers are undeniably the hottest team in baseball. It seems unlikely the team can keep up this torrid pace, though we did say that when they started this streak with an 8-1 homestand. Of course, in the three weeks since, they have kept it up. But should fans worry that this crazy stretch comes in Augus...

If the standings stay as they are, the Brewers will be the #2 seed in the National League for the playoffs. As announced by MLB, round one of the NLDS playoffs will take place on October 1st.  "Both National League Division Series begin on Oct. 1. Four games will be played on that Saturday, all in a row, a possibility of baseball from roughly 1-to-1 ET." If we're lucky, and because the Brewers ...

Now we're really getting somewhere with this baseball season! And not just first place, where the Brewers may have settled in for good. That's nice, but Milwaukee also has gained something every fan base...

ESPN's Steve Berthiaume seems to think so. Axford has already notched 31 saves this season and would seem to be on pace to break Francisco Cordero's season record of 44 saves, which he did in 2007. Axford had a rough April and his ERA was near 9. He blew 2 of 5 saves early and things were looking pretty bleak. Since then, he's set a team record of 27 straight saves and lowered his ERA to about ...

As the trade deadline looms, JS' Tom Haudricourt reports that Doug Melvin is working the phones, even on off days, trying to see what the market is like. Most fans are expecting the Brewers to be looking for a replacement short stop for Yuniesky Betancourt. Sometimes called the worst player in the majors, Yuni's poor defense has been much maligned this season. Add the struggles of Casey McGehee an...

Three years ago the Brewers reached the playoffs thanks to the bold trade that gave them a three-month “rental” of pitching ace CC Sabathia. Last week general manager Doug Melvin went for a short-term jackpot again, acquiring star closer Francisco Rodriguez from the New York Mets. Like Sabathia...

From MLB.com, there was a point in last night's game where the sun was especially brutal on Prince Fielder and he ran to the dugout asking for his sunglasses. Apparently they couldn't find them in the clubhouse and the Rockies fan started booing - so Fielder did what any player would do - he borrowed some from a fan.   Video embedded in the link below: http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=2011...

Anyone who thought in April that the Brewers would cruise to the playoffs isn't thinking it now. The team hit the All-Star break, with 70 games remaining, tied with St. Louis for first place in the National League Central and sporting a terrific home record of 33-14...

Just moments after the end of the All-Star Game, news broke that Dealin' Doug Melvin was at it again and had added Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez (K-Rod). Details of the trade so far are sketchy - the Brewers traded 2 players to be named later (PTBNL) to the Mets for K-Rod and cash. K-Rod is 2-2 with a 3.16 ERA in 42 games so far for the Mets. He's 23-for-26 in save opportunities. It's not clear ...
