Aramis Ramirez retires but will play season anyway

Published April 1, 2015

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Aramis Ramirez, who turns 37 this year and has been a professional since 1994, said he was retiring. But there was some confusion with the announcement, as he felt he was actually retired while the club thought he was retiring at the end of the year. But no, Ramirez actually DID retire. But, he has decided he will play anyway.

Published March 31, 2015

The Milwaukee Brewers are 72 hours away from starting the 2015 Major League Baseball season, and one could argue there hasn't been a bigger campaign in recent team history.

Published March 30, 2015

For two years, Scooter Gennett has been preparing for this chance, this season. With former All-Star Rickie Weeks now gone, the young second baseman has a chance to secure his chance to be the club's "future" by performing in the present.

Miller Park shuttle guide

Published March 27, 2015

With another Brewers season upon us, plenty of fans are looking for a ride to the ballpark. It's a safe alternative, if you're planning to drink - and even if you aren't, parking can be a nightmare at Miller Park. Plus, it's always fun to have somewhere to go before or after the game to celebrate (or commiserate) with your fellow Brew Crew lovers.

After nightmare year, Brewers' Segura hopes for sunny 2015

Published March 25, 2015

Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura went from being on the top of the world at the start of 2014 - the club was considering extending his contract and giving him a raise, and he was coming off an All-Star campaign. But things turned in ways he couldn't imagine, but the 25-year-old hopes to see the sun again in 2015.

Roenicke's security may not be best for Brewers

Published March 24, 2015

Ron Roenicke had the team option through next season picked up, but that decision may well not be the best thing for the Brewers. Lame ducks have the freedom to take risks and be creative which is something the team could use.

7 less obvious reasons I love Brewers Spring Training

Published March 19, 2015

My 18th annual Brewers Spring Training trip is now complete, and I'm back in chilly Milwaukee, which actually feels a little better after a few days under the beating hot sun of the desert. This trip was a good one. A really good one. New experiences, old friends and lots and lots of baseball. But you probably know about all that if you read my blog entries this week.

Getaway day: behind the scenes, behind the plate

Published March 18, 2015

When I left off yesterday, I was feeling tan, rested and ready for baseball, and we made the 30-minute drive from Talking Stick Resort to Peoria Stadium a little before noon. Brewers fans were out in force for the game against the Padres. St. Patty's Day revelry was in full effect.

The off day: St. Patrick's Day Eve in Scottsdale

Published March 17, 2015

I've said this before, but sometimes Spring Training feels a lot like the movie "Groundhog Day." Events, games and trips tend to run together, because with only a few variations, you're basically doing the same thing every day (and of course, that's a very good thing). But yesterday, we did something that we've only done one other time in 18 years: we didn't go to a Brewers game.

Back in the swing of things

Published March 16, 2015

When you've been awake for 24 consecutive hours, due to an early flight, a time change and the excitement of an 18th consecutive Spring Training trip to Arizona, it's understandable to make a few bad decisions. Fortunately, the only one I regret is that humungous carne asada burrito from Filiberto's at 2 a.m. Mountain Standard Time, before collapsing into a few hours of sleep at the Talking Stick Resort here in Scottsdale.

6 things I'm looking for at Spring Training

Published March 10, 2015

Every year - since 1998 - I've made the trip to Arizona to watch the Brewers get ready for a long, long season of baseball. It's my favorite work/fun trip (edging out even Las Vegas) that I get to take, but with all the fun and sun in the desert, it's surprisingly easy to forget to pay attention to the baseball on the field.

Brewers spring training guide, 2015

Published March 4, 2015

When Brewers fans talk to me about Spring Training, I always see the same look in their eyes. "I've always wanted to do that," they say wistfully, like Arizona exists in some far-away land, where you sit right next to the field and talk to the players in between in innings. Well, actually, most of that's true. Except for the far-away land part.
