Brewers will honor Selig with retired number

Published Sept. 26, 2014

Allan "Bud" Selig was at Miller Park Friday night, the second-to-last stop on his tour of Major League Baseball's ballparks as acting commissioner. It was the team he founded, and the house he built -- and current principal owner Mark Attanasio announced the club will retire jersey number 1 next year in Selig's honor.

Gomez enrolled in graduate school of baseball

Published Sept. 24, 2014

Carlos Gomez hasn't lost any style at the plate, but he's added far more substance in a 2014 campaign that resulted in another All-Star berth and a year in which he is on track to set multiple career highs at the plate.

5 questions for Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado

Published Sept. 23, 2014

While Jonathan Lucroy will receive MVP consideration this year, and rightly so, backup catcher Martin Maldonado has been a steadying influence behind the plate in reserve, and has been a part of some of the wildest plays of the 2014 season.

Krushing it: Brewers' Davis finds his balance at the plate

Published Sept. 17, 2014

It seems like a long time ago, but Khris Davis' ability to adjust his approach at the plate in mid-May (and carry it through the year) has helped the Milwaukee Brewers' left fielder remain a powerful factor in the lineup as the team looks to wrap up a postseason berth this month.

Defensive indifference

Published Sept. 16, 2014

Entering play tonight, the Brewers are 1.5 games out of the playoff picture. Right now, all of Milwaukee should be very excited about the Brewers, starting with me. Yet, for some reason, we're not.

5 questions for Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett

Published Sept. 16, 2014

Scooter Gennett got a taste of the big leagues in 2013, and now he's helping the Milwaukee Brewers make a playoff push in his first full season. We caught up with the second baseman to talk about what he's learned about the Cream City and its people, being set on fire, and how he likes to relax on off days.

Is it time for another racing sausage?

Published Sept. 13, 2014

Like you, we love the Klement's Racing Sausages. But, the other day, while gazing down at the figures on a T-shirt celebrating 20 years of sal-seech, I wondered if a few of them couldn't use a bit of a makeover and if the time is ripe for a sixth member of the meat-grinder gang.

Thunderstruck: McGehee is still a good guy

Published Sept. 12, 2014

I am fiercely loyal. Loyal to my friends, loyal to my family, loyal to my teammates and loyal to my coworkers. When I perceive injustice, I go at it head-on. I'm passionate, especially when I perceive unfairness. I might get a bit outspoken at times, but that's only because I feel I am fighting a just cause. So I get where former Brewers and current Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee was coming from Thursday night.

Hank the Dog comes to Brewers' rescue with new children's book

Published Sept. 12, 2014

The Brewers are desperately trying to pull themselves out of a devastating tailspin. Even when they win, they seem to lose - as evidenced by last night's Giancarlo Stanton debacle. Sounds like a good time to get baseball's favorite canine Hank the Dog back in the spotlight!

Tempers flare at Miller Park as Brewers top Marlins

Published Sept. 11, 2014

The benches cleared after an odd two-batter sequence when Milwaukee Brewers starter Mike Fiers hit Miami Marlins MVP-candidate Giancarlo Stanton in the face and pinch hitter Reed Johnson on back-to-back pitches -- which resulted in an inning-ending strikeout. Carlos Gomez was later hit, and the Brewers won two in a row for the first time since the end of August.

Thunderstruck: Brewers aren't THIS bad

Published Sept. 10, 2014

For the past eight years, I've been part of "The World's Greatest Sports Talk Show," "Homer & Mitch" and "Homer & Thunder." It was in this final incarnation that I really had the opportunity to share and to opine, to commiserate and to celebrate - all with you. I loved my time at ESPN Wisconsin, but it's time for me to connect in new ways.

Roenicke deserves major blame for Brewers crash to earth

Published Sept. 9, 2014

The Milwaukee Brewers can still run and hit and pitch and throw and catch as well as they ever could, but they aren't doing any of those things even decently now. And I think it's the fault of the manager.

5 questions for Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez

Published Sept. 9, 2014

A year after breaking out with an all-star campaign and a Gold Glove, Milwaukee Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez has followed it up with not just another All-Star season, but one in which he should receive Most Valuable Player votes. We caught up with Gomez to ask about head taps, his Gold Glove and if he'd rather win a game offensively, or defensively.
