Bubba Derby is a minor-league pitcher in the Brewers system, and he was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas when Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd, killing at least 59 people. Derby was at the festival with several family members and friends, and he’s since detailed the terrifying experience of being…
Some might say the 2017 Milwaukee Brewers, coming off a 73-89 season, were one of the pleasant surprises of this regular season. They finished second in the NL Central, had a healthy, positive run differential, and competed for a Wild Card spot all the way until the second-to-last day of the regular season. Some…
The Milwaukee Brewers are the losingest National League team to still be mathematically alive for the postseason, clinging to the very bottom rung of the Wild Card chase with just seven games to go. ESPN gives them just a 16 percent chance of edging into that final spot. It’s all do-or-die from here on in in Milwaukee.
Today is Jeremy Jeffress’s birthday. So far, it’s sucked. The Brewers are just one game back in the NL wild card race, and in tonight’s crucial game against the division-leading Cubs, he was handed a one-run lead to protect for the ninth inning. He blew it—failing to cover first base quickly enough on a bang-bang play…
Young Brewers outfielder Brett Maverick Phillips, best known for his wonderful laugh, started a brilliant unorthodox double play in Milwaukee tonight. Phillips’s powerful right arm took away a sacrifice fly and protected an early lead against the Pirates.
The Brewers salvaged a series split with the Cardinals, and crawled back to within three games of a wild card spot, and they have Keon Broxton to thank. The outfielder made a leaping catch at the wall in dead center to save what might’ve been a go-ahead two-run home run and seal a 6-5 win.
At 6'3" and 250 pounds, Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar is a pretty big guy. As a direct result of this, just as you might suspect, he wears some pretty big pants. Here he is, wearing said big pants:
The Brewers want a new spring training park. Gilbert, Ariz., would like to give it to them. The stadium would cost $90 million; the Brewers offered to pay $20 million of that. The adjoining mixed-use “village,” including retail and hotel, would cost another $70 million; the Brewers offered to pay none of that.
The Chris Christie humiliation spiral continued today with the fully-inflated Violet Beauregarde-looking New Jersey governor getting right into the face of a Cubs fan at today’s Cubs-Brewers game in Milwaukee:
Hey, look at this ball boy laying out to make the sliding stop on a foul ball in today’s Brewers-Cubs tilt:
Fresh off being tagged by a record-tying number of dingers Thursday against the Nationals, the Milwaukee Brewers—losers in nine of their last 11 games—return home hoping to avoid a serious ass-kicking at the hands of the red-hot Chicago Cubs, who come into town leading the division for the first time since May.
It’s a good day to be a Nationals fan and a very, very bad day to be a Brewers pitcher. The Nationals hit eight home runs in their first four innings today; five of those home runs were off Michael Blazek in the span of six at-bats in the bottom of the third.
Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt was pulled from tonight’s game against the Pirates after a rough collision at the plate with Pittsburgh pitcher Chad Kuhl.
Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia had himself a nice Saturday afternoon, going 3-for-4 with a dinger in a win over the Marlins. Also, hey, free ice cream!
Homer Bailey made his first major-league start of the year last week. He lasted less than two innings and allowed eight runs. He made his second major-league start of the year tonight, and it was... better! Definitely better. It sucked, but it was better. (Bailey, as a reminder, is making $19 million this year. He’s…
Stephen Vogt has found a new home in Milwaukee since Oakland let him go, and he would have had a fantastic first start as a Brewer if it weren’t for a Spider-Man impression by Reds right fielder Scott Schebler, who climbed the fence to make a catch so unlikely it even psyched out the announcer:
Today’s Giants-Brewers game was interrupted in the second inning by a fan who shed his pants somewhere in the process of getting onto the field. There are only two short clips so far—which show the man already tackled by ballpark security—but there are a couple of excellent wire photos, including one beautifully…
A few hours before the scheduled first pitch, the Cubs called to reschedule yesterday afternoon’s game against the Brewers due to rain. But when the original game time rolled around, it was no longer raining—and things stayed pretty dry for the rest of the day. An ordinary display of caution by the Cubs? A simple…
Travis Shaw got things started for the Brewers in the first inning today with a monster three-run dong that flew into the second deck:
