Many MLB players have odd routines at the plate. Ichiro draws his bat out in front of himself like a bow. David Ortiz takes approximately five hours to adjust his gloves. Jonathan Lucroy touches his shoulders. The Brewers catcher’s habit isn’t as elaborate as others’, but it is amusing.
This MLB season is not even a week old, yet fans are already resorting to the kind of boredom-reducing insane behavior we usually see in late September. Two separate incidents in Detroit and Milwaukee will, if you continue reading any further, probably ruin your appetite for the day. You’ve been warned.
It’s an even year, so the San Francisco Giants will win the 2016 World Series. Thank you to all the other teams for participating. Maybe next year! But not the one after that (we’re unclear what happens in 2020).
Spring training is the worst time for a ballplayer to get injured, but for some reason, every spring training injury happens to be a very dumb injury. Last year, we had Michael Saunders stepping on a sprinkler head and tearing his meniscus, Scooter Gennett cutting his finger on a stray shampoo bottle, and Chris Sale …
Emergency personnel took Rymer Liriano to a Phoenix-area hospital after the Brewers outfielder took a Matt West fastball to the face during the Milwaukee-L.A. Dodgers spring training game today in Arizona.
The Milwaukee Brewers held a press conference today to address rumors of Hank the dog’s death. The team stated that despite a change in his appearance, Hank has not been replaced by a new dog at any point since the team found him at spring training in 2014.
He came to the Milwaukee Brewers’ spring training facility dirty, lost, and injured. He won the hearts of fans and became an unofficial mascot. But is the current Hank the dog we all adore the same Hank the dog from 2014?
Brett Phillips, the Brewers’ 21-year-old outfielder, won’t make the big club out of camp, though as one of the franchise’s better prospects, it wouldn’t be crazy to see him come up later this year. In the meantime he’s here to get better, and to show coaches what he can do, and maybe some other baseball stuff. He’s…
We went over the best pictures from MLB Photo Day over here, but what Brewers prospect Brett Phillips did needs more than one frame.
Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams threw out the first pitch at Thursday’s Brewers game, and it was accurate, provided that Carter-Williams was trying to hit the cameraman.
Well this is cool. David Denson came out as gay yesterday and became the first active player in Major League Baseball to do so. The 20-year-old Denson is a power-hitting first baseman currently with the Helena Brewers of the Pioneer League. MLB.com ranks him as the Brewers’ 27th best prospect.
After everyone finally got clear of the #LOLMets Twitter storm that whipped up around last night’s botched trade between the Mets and Brewers, we were given what seemed like a reasonable explanation for why the deal fell apart: the Mets were worried about Carlos Gomez’s bum hip. But a new report claims the Mets may…
Today in “manager challenges you didn’t expect to see”: Craig Counsell successfully challenging the Brewers’ Khris Davis being called out after hitting a home run. Home plate ump Will Little called Davis out after the Giants appealed, tossing the ball to the plate claiming the Milwaukee outfielder hadn’t touched it…
Brewers pitcher Will Smith earned an ejection tonight from crew chief Jim Joyce after Braves skipper Fredi Gonzalez raised an objection over the existence of a foreign substance on Smith’s wrist.
Carlos Gómez avoided serious injury yesterday as medical evaluations concluded the Brewers outfielder did not suffer a concussion after being drilled in the head by a 97-mph Noah Syndergaard fastball at Citi Field. He even had a friendly Twitter conversation about the incident:
A Noah Syndergaard fastball struck Carlos Gómez in the temple, forcing the Brewers outfielder out of today’s game against the Mets in the sixth inning. Gómez spent several minutes on the ground before returning to the dugout, but we’ve received no word as to his condition.
