You may remember last Monday night when Gregg Zaun was having difficulties throwing the ball back to pitcher Yovani Gallardo. It was later reported that Zaun was having shoulder spasms and therefore had little feeling in his harm. A quick treatment between innings solved the problem and the story probably should have gone away, except the situation got major press play and poor Zaun's pathetic thr...

The Brewers are neither completely sucking nor riding the high tide, and I feel like there's nothing to write about. Sad, isn't it? If there are few things to cheer or few things to whine about, I'm stuck. Rough spot to be in, the Astros fans sarcastically say to me. I know it, I'm spoiled. The best thing over the past few days? Jeff Suppan didn't suck. He came in in relief in tonight's gam...

If you're a Brewers fan and you don't already read Brew Crew Ball, you should. And I'm not just saying that because I write there. You will not find smarter fan conversation, more in-depth analysis or better coverage elsewhere. We started something new this season to preview each of the upcoming series and today I posted my first. I asked some questions of some Padres bloggers and in return ...

Using the excuse that his career track record outweighs his poor pre-season performance, Jeff Suppan has been named the Brewers� 5th starter today. He will do a rehab assignment on Friday in Appleton with the Timber Rattlers and is likely to pitch Wednesday at Chicago, say Haudricourt and McCalvy. � In his comments on the move, manager Ken Macha seemed to say a lot without saying anything. He d...

Per John Perrotto of Baseball Prospectus on ESPN Rumor Central via UeckerPowell �s Twitter feed: Scouts who have watching (Jeff) Suppan pitch in Arizona this spring say he is completely cooked and no longer able to get major league hitters out. _ Who knows what to make of this bit of information. Suppan�s been as horrible as we feared all Spring Training long, but this bit of information su...

Yesterday, Brewers manager Ken Macha was asked what Jeff Suppan would be doing today, as it was his scheduled day to pitch. Manny Parra and Chris Narveson are scheduled to pitch in the Brewers� Spring Training game, but Suppan�s workload hadn�t been announced. Here�s what Macha had to say: �Hopefully I�ll be able to answer that tomorrow. That�s my best answer.� As Haudricourt put it, since when...

Despite my somewhat recent obsession with the Brewers (2005), I’ve never actually been to Opening Day. I know it’s a Milwaukee holiday to be celebrated on par with St. Patrick’s Day, but see, even with my Irish roots, I don’t head out on March 17.   The last time I could have been classified as drunk, it was off a bottle or two of wine. I can face it – I’m a light weight.   Bes...

Last Wednesday was truck day for the Milwaukee Brewers and as part of the hoopla/story, the Brewers had pictures of the Racing Sausages helping to load the trucks and eventually showing them being loaded in themselves. Concurrent to that story was a promotion in which Brewers Charities were auctioning off a chance to have the Racing Sausages Sing to your Sweetheart on Valentine�s Day � four full ...

With the signing on Doug Davis, the Brewers now have six starting pitchers on their roster - Dave Bush, Davis, Yovani Gallardo, Manny Parra, Jeff Suppan and Randy Wolf. Since the rotation is only give guys, someone clearly has to go. Does this mean we're finally clear of the dreaded Soup-start? According to Adam McCalvy, GM Doug Melvin said, "Players help make these decisions." I assume Melvin's s...
