The Brewers controlled their own destiny and they didn't let it slip out of their hands tonight. Home runs from Corey Hart, Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez led the Brewers to a 7-3 win over the Pirates to clinch the #2 seed in the NL, giving them home-field advantage. The win was also the Brewers 96th this season, a franchise record. Jose Reyes won the batting title - he sparked some controversy ...

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...

This picture of Nyjer Morgan from FS Wisconsin is too amazing not to share.   Some fun Deja Vu tonight. Braun hit the home run to beat the Cubs on the final day of the season in 2008 to clinch the NL Wild Card. In 2008 the Brewers beat the Cubs and had to hang around the stadium to wait to watch the Marlins win. Today the Brewers beat the Marlins and had to wait to see the Cubs win.   The Brew...

Money spent three years as manager of the Sounds and has been in the Brewers minor league system for 14 years. While he was manager, the Sounds has just one winning s...

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...

As the Brewers have snapped out of their slump and moved their Magic Number below five, they're competing for attention and fans with the other major sports in the state: the Packers and the Badgers. While the Magic Number countdown has made it to the upper corner on the front page of the J-S and Miller Brewery has started projecting images supporting the team on their I-House, the tallest buildin...

Taylor Green became the first player ever to be named the Brewers Minor League Player of the Year twice. He was named top prospect in 2007. The Brewers call these awards Robin Yount Performance Awards. Green had a rough 2008 and 2009 due to injury, so it's especially exciting that he was able to overcome that and return to top status on the team. He is obviously someone the Brewers are interested ...
