LF Ryan Braun and 1B Prince Fielder won Silver Slugger Awards from the MLB tonight. The awards, presented by Louisville Slugger, are awarded to the top hitters at each position in each league. It is the second Slugger of Fielder's career. He won it in 2007, but it's going to Albert Pujols each of the last three years. It is actually the fourth consecutive Silver Slugger for Braun. The last NL outf...

Let me preface this by saying that I am a huge supporter of the Brewers PR and Communications departments - I think they do amazing things. They have tapped into some great new markets and constantly come up with innovative ideas for the team to be more fan-friendly. I purchased a program during each the NLDS and NLCS series. The program for the NLDS was thinner and cost $8. The program for the NL...

Just in case you haven't heard it elsewhere, Sunday's game time is subject to change, based on the outcome of Saturday's ALCS game. As it stands, ALCS Game 7 is scheduled for Sunday night, meaning the Brewers are currently scheduled to play at 3 pm CST. However, if the Rangers win on Saturday, thereby winning the ALCS and eliminating the need for a Game 7, the Brewers will be bumped into t...

With the NLCS heading back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Sunday, I think it's time to address this. Sure, Monday's 12-3 loss to the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLCS was embarrassing. It was a blow out and it wasn't a fun game to watch. However, it was just the 2nd NLCS game held in Milwaukee in 29 years. And that right there means to me that it was inexcusable that Brewers fans exited Miller Park en m...

Pitching - specifically starting pitching - was the story as the Brewers went on an incredible winning run in August and eventually closed out the season in September. Zach Greinke was undefeated at home. Shaun Marcum was clutch on the road. Chris Narveson had far exceeded expectations. Randy Wolf was a solid #4. And with two games in Phoenix, that seems to have all gone out the window. Randy ...

I'm going to start right out with it: I HATE RALLY TOWELS! I get that they look good on TV, but they are hell to anyone inside the stadium this is actually, you know, trying to watch the game. They consistantly blocked my view of the field. They are in every single one of my pictures. They're stupid. They also prevent people from clapping and I think noise is a much more crucial aspect of a large ...

The Brewers are continuing to pick up momentum in the post-season media attention race. Small market teams rarely draw the notice of the big outlets, but the fact that they're the only team to start their series 2-0, that Braun's an MVP favorite and Beast Mode seems impossible to ignore, the team has gotten some attention. I've seen a lot of people deciding to adopt the Brewers as "their" postseas...

Game 1 of NLDS between Brewers and D-backs scheduled for 1:07 pm CT Saturday. Game 2 Sunday @ 3:37 pm CT.   The Saturday start time means that Wisconsin sports fans will not have to choose between the Brewers postseason and the Badgers/Nebraska game that starts at 7pm. Unfortunately, though, they will have to choose on Sunday when the Packers play the Broncos at 3pm. The last time the two played,...

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 ...
