In a somewhat surprising move, the Brewers announced yesterday that they have asked their entire coaching staff to return for the 2012 season. That staff consists of hitting coach Dale Sveum, third-base coach Ed Sedar, bullpen coach Stan Kyles, bench coach Jerry Narron, pitching coach Rick Kranitz, first-base coach Garth Iorg and outfield coach/eye in the sky John Shelby.  When you think about ...

Corey Provus, who'd been the #2 Brewers radio guy at 620 WTMJ alongside Bob Uecker, has been hired to be the #1 radio broadcaster for the Twins. Provus came to Milwaukee three years ago after long-time "second guy" Jim Powell left Milwaukee for Atlanta. The Brewers organization has an interesting relationship with 620 WTMJ. Uecker (and TV guys Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder) is a Brewers employ...

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...

Let me preface this by saying that I am a huge supporter of the Brewers PR and Communications departments - I think they do amazing things. They have tapped into some great new markets and constantly come up with innovative ideas for the team to be more fan-friendly. I purchased a program during each the NLDS and NLCS series. The program for the NLDS was thinner and cost $8. The program for the NL...

Just in case you haven't heard it elsewhere, Sunday's game time is subject to change, based on the outcome of Saturday's ALCS game. As it stands, ALCS Game 7 is scheduled for Sunday night, meaning the Brewers are currently scheduled to play at 3 pm CST. However, if the Rangers win on Saturday, thereby winning the ALCS and eliminating the need for a Game 7, the Brewers will be bumped into t...

With the NLCS heading back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Sunday, I think it's time to address this. Sure, Monday's 12-3 loss to the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLCS was embarrassing. It was a blow out and it wasn't a fun game to watch. However, it was just the 2nd NLCS game held in Milwaukee in 29 years. And that right there means to me that it was inexcusable that Brewers fans exited Miller Park en m...

The Brewers won their NLDS series against the Diamondbacks last night and shortly thereafter found out they'd be facing the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS. On the plus side, the Brewers have home-field advantage. On the negative, they have to play the Cardinals. Tensions between these two teams have been high all season, culminating in the September game where Chris Carpenter screamed at Nyjer Mo...

Pitching - specifically starting pitching - was the story as the Brewers went on an incredible winning run in August and eventually closed out the season in September. Zach Greinke was undefeated at home. Shaun Marcum was clutch on the road. Chris Narveson had far exceeded expectations. Randy Wolf was a solid #4. And with two games in Phoenix, that seems to have all gone out the window. Randy ...
