If new-to-the-team this year Brewer Nyjer Morgan hasn't won your heart, you haven't been paying attention.   The newest addition to the team has given some epic interviews, entertained with his Twitter account and is hitting .330. This post-game interview literally had me jumping and clapping in my easy chair   He interacts with fans on Twitter, taking their advice on what to do with his off da...

Frank: I'll bet the Brewers were especially glad to see Miller Park again after experiencing the two oldest, smallest visitors' clubhouses in baseball. Artie: To say nothing of experiencing a 2-5 record at Wrigley Field and Fenway Park, and giving up 34 runs in the last three losses...

Sundays at the ballpark don't get much better in Milwaukee. The Brewers completed a sweep of St. Louis, grabbed first place in the National League Central division and gave fans good reasons to think they'll stay there. And it happened at a pace that got the Observers on the bus home in...

Has the curse of the road been broken? The Brewers have managed to eke out three one-run wins in Florida and seem to have broken out of the slump they've had away from Miller Park. The lack of offense seems to have been solved and the defensive woes aren't plaguing the team. Roenicke seems to have made the right choice by sitting Casey McGehee. Josh Wilson has proved himself a valuable pick up. Th...

The first step was taken today when Casey McGehee was taken out of the lineup. Not only is Casey not getting hits, but he's even incapable of putting a sac fly in the air. While Craig Counsell's batting average isn't any better, he takes walks and gives you a solid at-bat every time. Until Casey can figure out where his swing went, he shouldn't be in the lineup. But it's time to talk about the res...

After a rocky start to the season, the general concensus amongst writers and fans was that the Brewers needed to end May above .500 to be able to keep their season on track. Thanks to a streak of winning nine of their last 11, the Brewers have accomplished that fact and find themselves tied for second place in the division. A six game losing streak by the Reds has helped. The two teams find themse...

With Nyjer Morgan on the DL and Carlos Gomez struggling at the plate, manager Ron Roenicke has decided to play Mark Kotsay in center field. Unfortunately for us, this experiment went well in its first iteration. He was 3-for-4 with 2 RBI. He was pulled in the 9th inning in favor of Gomez defensively. This bought him another chance.  In the second attempt, he was 0-for-4. He was in CF for about 6 ...

If the Brewers make the playoffs, their 10-day swing through Houston, Atlanta and St. Louis will fade in memories. If they don't, well… Ten games, eight losses, only 17 runs, almost no-hit twice in three games and a team batting average of .172. The biggest ray of hope?

Why is it that baseball slumps always seem worse than slumps in every other sport? Is it the daily losing that gets to our psyche? That daily reminder of suckitude that doesn’t allow you to forget about the losing?   Baseball has the longest season and therefore stretches of losing have less of an impact than in other sports, yet I never take a string of losses so hard as when my baseball te...

My twitter stream today brought me a high and a low in about 5 minutes. J-S Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt tweeted that Nyjer Morgan had returned to the team from the DL and would be replacing Carlos Gomez in the two-hole of the batting order for tonight's game. A few minutes later, Haudricourt tweeted that the tarp was on the field in Atlanta and they were expecting quite a bit of rain. W...
