Ken, we hardly knew ye. The Macha managerial era in Brewers history ended after two seasons when the team finished at 77-85, three games worse than the year before. The quiet, professorial Macha had nothing but winning seasons and two playoffs in four years with Oakland, but things...

"Melvin had this to say about Brenly rumor: 'Unless somebody else has been doing the hiring process, that's not true.'" "'Just another rumor to squelch' Melvin said..."...

I have always found myself very apathetic about Macha. I could never muster the energy to hate him, as I did Yost. And he never struck me as remotely likable. He never seemed to warrant strong emotions. While you could always count on Yost for a good rant at an ump, it was an event is Ken left the dugout. Yost was combative with reporters while Macha often seemed resigned. Yost was half a step fr...

With the Brewers taking on the first-place Reds this week it’s been a good time to take stock of the trade the two teams made a few weeks ago. Looking for more power, the Reds traded for Jim Edmonds. The Brewers got Chris Dickerson in return. Edmonds had seen a lot of time in the field for the Brewers then we would have expected from a fourth outfielder. The trade to a team with post-season h...

I was shocked earlier in the week reading the comments over at JSOnline.com on the stories about the Bug Selig statue that was unveiled in front of Miller Park. I was shocked to learn of the vitriol that so many seem to carry for him. I was in high school when the surge to build Miller Park was happening and was admittedly blissfully unaware at the time. I wasn�t yet a baseball fan and I didn�...

Ok, so going to the media and calling another team names isn�t exactly the most mature way to handle things, but despite Brandon Phillips playground tactics, well � he�s got a point. � And the ensuing comments and brawl from the Cardinals have gone a long way to proving Phillips� point. � The Cardinals seem to think that they were named arbiters of all that is good and true about baseball an...
