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...

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...

If you aren't a 20-game, 40-game or season seat holder, or have some sort of inside track to tickets we mortals don't know about, you don't have your hot little mandibles on Brewers post-season tickets. The lottery that the Brewers hold for single-game tickets to post-season games started today. According to a release from a few weeks ago, in 2008, when the Brewers won the Wild Card, they had abou...

Apparently the Brewers really are as loose a clubhouse as the media has been reporting all season. Because today they decided that when in Texas... So they apparently went in groups to buy boots, belt buckles and the whole caboodle to dress as cowboys for their trip from Houston to St. Louis. According to MLB.com writer Adam McCalvy, in 2001 the Brewers did a similiar thing after sweeping the Cubs...

The Cardinals completed a sweep of the Brewers yesterday in spectacular fashion, as Albert Pujols, who the Brewers had really held in check over the season series until this point, went 4-for-4 with 5 RBI and two home-runs - including a third-inning grand slam that put the game out of the reach of the Brewers. Thursday's game featured a leadoff home run from Rafeael Furcal (who's hit 5 HR all seas...

The rumors have said that the Brewers wouldn't be expanding the rosters too much once rosters expand to 40 players on September 1. They weren't kidding. The Brewers called up just three players - and that's really being generous, since one of the call-ups is Carlos Gomez. The other two are OF Logan Schafer and C Martin Maldonado. Just a day after Ron Roenicke explained that he left struggling hitt...

After saving all three of this weekend's games, John Axford became the 2nd Brewer ever to record 40 saves in a season. Axford is in just his second season as the Brewers closer and baring some ridiculousness, should be for at least a few more years. At this point, he is fifth on the Brewers all-time save list - after less than two seasons. He is just fourteen saves away from tying for third place ...

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...
