Brewers Eliminated; Fans Left With Sheets Of Useless Playoff Tickets

The rare article I post because of a comment: “This is different from years ago, when Sheets was left with useless Brewers.”

The Milwaukee Brewers spent 150 days in first place this season, but they did not make the playoffs: the team was officially eliminated after yesterday’s 5-3 loss to the Reds. Milwaukee’s collapse provided us with Brewers fans taking sad photos of their now-meaningless postseason tickets. It’s not your fault, Hank the dog.

Giancarlo Stanton hit in face by pitch

Stanton immediately fell to the ground in the batter’s box at Milwaukee’s Miller Park and never stood back up as medical personnel tended to him and ultimately placed him into an ambulance while on a stretcher.

Scary stuff in Milwaukee. Also:

Umpires ruled that Stanton swung at the pitch as his body spun in an attempt to get out the way of the ball. Reed Johnson then took Stanton’s at-bat over, and Fiers then hit Johnson in the hand with a pitch high and inside.

Hopefully, this will be remembered in the end as the at-bat where a pitcher recorded a strikeout while hitting two batters in the plate appearance, and not as a turning point in Stanton’s career or life.


Skunked Brew: The Bizarre Implosion of Milwaukee’s Playoff Hopes

That is what the Brewers looked like over the weekend, and what they’ve looked like over the past month. They look as though they are outside themselves, watching their play deteriorate and feeling that they are somehow responsible, but not able to quite figure out why and how. “We’re not doing good,” said Milwaukee All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez, who on Sunday got his first at-bat in a week after injuring his wrist. “That’s no excuse, you know. We’re not playing like a team. We just put it in the past and come tomorrow and win the fucking game.”

The Brewers as an Inning

an interesting view of the brewers last several weeks.  two games stick out.  the 3-2 loss in san diego where the brewers were looking squeak one out only to have the bullpen throw it away.  and then the 9-1 blowout against the cards where the crew looked like they were in a daze the entire game.

i know most figure milwaukee are just finding their ‘true talent level’.  that is one possibly true

but if you actually watched the games you didn’t see anything but a group of players who not only performed as if the game was somewhat strange to them but that they hardly knew one another.  there has been little to no coordinated effort other than to be inept.

it’s been tough to watch.  to not even be competitive most nights

Baer: Jonathan Lucroy has broken the doubles record for catchers

With a first-inning double in tonight’s game against the Cardinals, his 48th of the season, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy broke the doubles record for catchers, per ESPN Stats & Info on Twitter. Ivan Rodriguez held the record previously, doubling 47 times in 1996 though two of those doubles were hit as a DH. 41 of Lucroy’s 48 doubles have been hit when he has been in the lineup as a catcher (six at first base, one at DH)...

he entered the night with a .299/.366/.476 slash line along with 13 home runs and 62 RBI.

Castrovince: The Brewers are fighting against a free fall

The mediocrity of the rotation surprises me more than the bullpen, not that the bullpen should be third-worst-in-baseball bad either.

The Brewers became just the fourth team in the wild card era to win 20 games in the season’s first month… Francisco Rodriguez, Tyler Thornburg, Will Smith, Zach Duke and Brandon Kintzler combined to give up just five runs in 62 1/3 innings of work in that opening sequence. It was never going to be that good again for the Brewers bullpen… the Brewers have the third-highest relief ERA in baseball since April 29…

not one starter ranks in the top 30 in Fielding Independent Pitching-based WAR. This is significant because it’s something that can’t be said of any other club in current playoff position.

Kyle Lohse, Wily Peralta, Yovani Gallardo and [Matt] Garza have all hovered around league average in adjusted ERA…

the offense is still getting on-base at a below-average pace (a .313 OBP since April 29)...

Ultimately, the Brewers look like an example of water finding its level in the 162-game schedule. They bought themselves an irresistible opportunity with that absurd April. All they had to do was win as much as they lost for the next five months, and they’d be fitted for a division crown.

Now, it’s going to take much more than that for the Brewers to recover from their recent free fall. And with the Cards coming to town for four, the recovery must be immediate.

Brisbee: Finding baseball’s most hopeless franchise

The included tweet should guarantee the honor just on principle.

Old teams in large markets with thin farm systems

This is where the Phillies are. This is where the Yankees are. Here be the White Sox… None of these teams will ever qualify for most-screwed status, though… their large-market status will always guarantee that there’s someone in a worse spot.

Older teams in small markets

The Reds might really be screwed… A lot of what makes the Reds a sorta-contender now, though, could still be good in the future… In about a week, the Brewers could be here… A lot of their best players are still 30 or under, though, so I’m not sure if they’re close to an “old” team just yet…

Cursed teams

the Padres… have a respected farm system, for what it’s worth, and they have young talent on the roster. Heck, they’re close to .500 right now because they’ve proven adept at developing pitchers, at least the ones who stay healthy.

They make the list, though, because they’re the Padres…

The Rockies

They get their own category because they win. What are the Rockies? Have you ever seen a team like this, a team so committed to its GM through 90-loss seasons, unless that’s not really the GM? An owner who might be something of a meddler and whose brain might be filled with gestational YouTube comments that he filters through his fingers and shares with fans?

Their franchise players are chronically hurt, and they have a long track record of breaking young pitchers, both in body and spirit. Everything about them is a mess right now, from the top down. That’s all before you get to the worst part: They already start with the biggest disadvantage in baseball, the thin air of Coors Field… It’s one of the Hilbert problems of baseball, except it’s been the same mathematicians working on the problem for the last 15 years, and most of the available evidence suggests they’re using a watch calculator with the “7” key missing.

Brewers prospect plays every position, all in one game

Nathan Orf plays for the Brevard County Manatees, the Single-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, and he might just be the most versatile player in all of baseball. Normally we’d need to show you a series of charts and supporting claims to prove that point. Instead just look at the box score from Sunday night….

That’s right. Orf played all nine positions for the Manatees, and you know, he didn’t completely suck. He drew a walk, then forced a ground out in the ninth inning as a pitcher. The team’s manager planned to play Orf at every spot, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive.

Brewers Acquire Jonathan Broxton

I always thought Broxton was pretty Turnbow-y. But he does lead the Reds in games pitched and has a 1.86 ERA, so maybe I’m wrong. (3.52 FIP)

The Reds have traded right-hander Jonathan Broxton to the Brewers, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (Twitter link).

Ron Roenicke rips into home-plate umpire

ron is considered too passive by man brewers fans so this outburst is surprising. 

“Roenicke was ejected by home-plate umpire Mark Ripperger in the aftermath of the game-tying home run hit by Padres catcher Rene Rivera off Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth.

The homer came on just the third pitch thrown by Rodriguez, who fell behind Rivera, 2-0. Rodriguez eventually got out of that ninth, but it was a tough pill to swallow for a Brewers team that fought to take a 2-0 lead in the seventh only to eventually give it back late.

Rivera then beat the Brewers with a walk-off single off Zach Duke in the 10th.

Asked about Ripperger in the minutes following the loss, Roenicke didn’t hold back. Ripperger, as it turns out, was behind the plate for one previous Brewers game this season, a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets at Miller Park on July

“This is the thing that bothers me: this is the same umpire that we had before, and he is terrible behind home plate,” he said. “He calls pitches that aren’t even close. The catcher sets up six inches off the plate and he calls them strikes. I should have been kicked out the last time that we saw him. He was behind the plate,

“I’m tired of sitting here watching the catcher set up off the plate and hitting his glove and (the umpire) calling it a strike. They’re balls. So Frankie misses, OK, it’s off the plate this much, the first one he calls a ball. He’s been calling it all night. The next one was a little further off, but he’s been calling that also. Just call the same pitches, but they’re balls.

“I should have been kicked out in probably the second inning today. It’s the same guy.”

(i appreciate all the tips on how to distinguish my comments from the article but i confess that is too complicated for me.  sorry.  i don’t understand why the old way had to go away.  that was very straightforward and worked.  this is just beyond me)

Lucroy drives in five runs as Brewers sweep Dodgers

The season series finale was a 7-2 Brewers rout on a sun-splashed Sunday at Dodger Stadium, with Lucroy logging five RBIs in the first two innings and Peralta working six scoreless innings to tie for the Major League lead with his 15th victory.

The National League Central-leading Brewers defeated the NL West-leading Dodgers five times in six games over a span of 10 days, with Dodgers aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke starting four of the games for Los Angeles. The Brewers took two of three last weekend at Miller Park before dealing the Dodgers their first losing sweep in a series of more than two games all season.

Now the teams are tied atop the National League with 70 wins apiece.

Brewers acquire outfielder Gerardo Parra from D-backs

gerardo parra
@88_gparra

Les’t go @Brewers

The Brewers like [Gerardo] Parra’s defense at all three outfield positions and his left-handed bat, so they parted with a pair of Minor League prospects to pry him from the D-backs on Thursday, about two hours before the non-waiver Trade Deadline…

Headed to Arizona in the Parra trade was Double-A Huntsville outfielder Mitch Haniger, who was ranked No. 8 on MLB.com’s list of the top Brewers prospects before the deal, plus 20-year-old left-hander Anthony Banda, who was drafted by the D-backs in 2011 but did not sign. The Brewers took Banda in the 10th round of the Draft the following season…

Parra, who is batting .259 with six home runs and 30 RBIs in 104 games this season, has one more year of arbitration eligibility remaining after this season. The 27-year-old has started mostly in right field this year, but Ryan Braun is a fixture there for the Brewers, Carlos Gomez is entrenched in center field and Davis is playing his first full Major League season in left. Ideally, Parra will spell each of those starters while providing insurance against injuries for Gomez, who has battled a back issue of late, and Braun, who has managed thumb, back and rib cage ailments at various times this year…

Parra is earning $4.85 million this season and would see that salary rise for 2015 if the Brewers go through arbitration with him.

  Marlins
  Rockies
  Cardinals
  Brewers
  Padres
  Indians

Competitive Balance Round B

  Reds
  Athletics
  Mariners

As MLB.com’s Jim Callis explained earlier in the week, teams that have one of the 10 smallest markets or one of the 10 smallest revenue pools are eligible to receive a compensatory pick between the first and second rounds (Round A) or between the second and third rounds (Round B).

Its about time the Cardinals got some help to become more competitive.

Journal News: Recap of Derek Jeter Retirement Gifts

The big 2nd half issue at BBTF is likely to be the retirement gifts The Captain receives as he completes his Final Journey. To provide perspective, the LoHud Yankee Blog reviews the 1st half:

May 25 — White Sox
Once a powerful hitter for both the Yankees and White Sox, retired slugger Ron Kittle built Jeter’s U.S. Cellular Field retirement gift. Kittle created a bench made of baseball equipment with bases as the seat, bats as the back and arm rests, and baseballs used for decoration and spacing. Long time White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko also presented Jeter with clay removed from the shortstop position at U.S. Cellular, plus a $5,000 donation to Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation.

Looks like it wouldn’t be difficult for Furtdao to top the Cubs effort on behalf of BBTF.

MLB: Brewers heartbroken by death of Jean Segura’s 9-month-old son

Just awful. Nothing else to say.

MILWAUKEE—Sometimes life trumps losing streaks. Saturday was one of those sometimes for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Players spent the morning trying to focus on an ostensibly big game against the rival Cardinals while hurting inside for shortstop Jean Segura, who was informed following Friday’s series-opening loss that his nine-month-old son, Janniel, had died suddenly in the Dominican Republic. [...]

Segura’s return to the team is open-ended. A player can remain on the bereavement list for a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven.

“He’s emotional, he’s young,” said Roenicke, who fought his own emotion while breaking the news to reporters. “That’s why when I tell you I don’t know what’s going to happen with him, I worry about him.

“He’ll just have to make a decision where he’s at and what he feels like. It’s different with everybody. Some guys might feel like, ‘Hey, I need to get back and I need to play,’ and some other guys just can’t do it.” [...]

Gomez and other Brewers players planned to reach out to Segura during the All-Star break to remind him he was in their thoughts.

“If it was my kids, I probably would stay home. I’m not coming back,” Gomez said. “I don’t know how he’s going to react to coming back. If he’s coming back, we’re going to take care of him and help him to relax and enjoy life again.”

Oz: Thumb injuries to Yadier Molina, Brandon Phillips shake up NL Central

I hereby confer upon you the honorary degree of ThD. That’s Doctor of Thumbology.

The news wasn’t good for the St. Louis Cardinals and their cornerstone catcher Yadier Molina. Molina has a torn ligament in his thumb and will miss 8-12 weeks after surgery, according to Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak.

Nor was it good for the division rival Cincinnati Reds, who confirmed Thursday that their star second baseman Brandon Phillips also needs thumb surgery to repair a ligament. The Reds say he’ll miss six weeks…

Both injuries figure to shake up the NL Central, where the Cards and Reds had both been making a charge at the first-place Milwaukee Brewers. Heading into Thursday’s action, the Brewers were up two games on the Cardinals and two and a half on the Reds…

Unless the Cardinals make a move — A.J. Pierzynski and his smartphone are available — Tony Cruz figures to takeover the everyday catching duties. He’s played in 21 games this season and is hitting .255 in 51 at-bats. He’s been with the Cardinals since 2011 but has never played more than 51 games in a season.

The Reds have utilityman Skip Schumaker listed as their No. 2 second baseman, but back-up shortstop Ramon Santiago played there Thursday against the Cubs….

With the Cardinals and Reds hurting, the Brewers have to feel better about their chances of holding on to their division lead. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Pirates, four and a half back and in fourth place, have to sense a great opportunity in front of them.

Murray Chass on Baseball: BREWERS BOAST BEST IMPROVEMENT

Murray & Melvins boner records

lp

The Brewers’ first-half success is welcomed by those of us who have not become wild-eyed fans of analytics. Melvin doesn’t disdain new-fangled statistics, but he keeps them in perspective.

“I use certain numbers,” he said without identifying them. “We use them internally. We don’t advertise them. Some are useful, some aren’t.”

Melvin said he doesn’t use them for minor leaguers. “The minor leagues are for development,” he said. “You can’t analyze players in the minor leagues. You develop players and until they get through the teaching process it’s hard to analyze the numbers. The minor league numbers don’t always relate to major league success.”

One of the reasons minor leaguers can’t be judged on the new statistics, Melvin said, is the intangibles. “Who are the players willing to take instruction,” he asked, citing one intangible that can’t be determined by a sabermetric formula. Á lot of players have early success but don’t develop,” he said.

Melvin also said new statistics can be costly to teams that live by them. He cited the Boston Red Sox signing of Carl Crawford as an example. The Red Sox gave Crawford $142 million “because he had a 6 ½ WAR number,” then couldn’t wait to trade him.

“There’s a spot for analytics,” he said. “You can put a certain percentage of weight on them. But some of the analytics have a high cost.”

Putting my view in perspective, Melvin said, “A scout once said ‘I may not be educated but my eyes are.’”

McDonald: Jonathan Lucroy talks clutch hitting

Hyper-focus? Hell, who didn’t think Thijs van Leer wasn’t on something?

Lucroy’s stand-out year doesn’t end there. Looking closer, in high-leverage situations—those times when one swing of the bat can change the game—Lucroy is batting .406 in 79 plate appearances.

“I’ve been told by a psychologist before that I have the ability to hyper-focus,” Lucroy said before a recent game in St. Louis. “For some reason I enjoy those situations.”

Talk about clutch hitting not being a skill all you want, but the bottom line is the first-place Brewers are coming through when the game is on the line. Lucroy is a big part of this. He has 23 hits in high-leverage moments, third-most in MLB.

Lucroy said hitting for a high average in a clutch situation is not luck. He also thinks, despite conventional wisdom that clutch hitters do not exist, that there are guys who can be defined as clutch hitters.

“Guys get mad because you can’t quantify that,” Lucroy said. “[Stats people] can’t put a number on that. But I think within the human brain you have an ability to go, ‘OK, I’ve got to get locked in here.’ I just can’t go up there and go, ‘I’m going to do whatever.’ [You have] to lock in and do this. That’s hyper-focused.”

His approach in high-leverage situations, then, comes down to his mental ability, not mechanics or muscle memory. “This game is really more mental than anything,” Lucroy said. “It’s amazing how mental this game can get.”

Bill Madden: An Old Brew GM

Melvin’s: With Yo’ Eyes, Not Yo’ Stats. (King Buzzkill)

For a guy whose team has just had the best first-half in the 45-year history of the franchise, Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin is sounding pretty grumpy about the state of baseball these days. Maybe it’s because the 62-year-old Melvin, an old school GM who values scouts over Ivy League whiz kid stat geeks, thinks his NL Central-leading Brewers deserve a little more respect from the Sabermetrics crowd. “There’s this one guy,” Melvin was saying by phone Friday, “who rates the prospects in every organization, and last year labeled (Brewer second baseman) Scooter Gennett ‘just a backup utility player.’ Well, Scooter’s only hit nothing but .300 since last year and been one of our most important players this year and yet, when the guy was asked about him again last week, he repeated the same thing; that he thought he was nothing more than a ‘backup utility player.’ Why can’t these (stat) guys ever admit they’re wrong? A lot of them don’t even watch the games. But then everything has changed so much in baseball. Everything now has to be immediate. We live in a world of Instagrams when, more than any other sport, the most important thing in baseball is that you’ve got to be patient.”

Melvin cited his left fielder, Khris Davis, currently leading the Brewers with 14 homers and 42 RBI, as perhaps the best example of that. It took Davis five years to win himself a regular job with the Brewers, partly because of his below-average arm, even for left field. “This winter I traded (outfielder) Norichika Aoki, who was one of our most popular players, to Kansas City for (lefty reliever) Will Smith, whose been a key guy (1.36 ERA, 49 Ks in 39.2 IP) in our bullpen,” Melvin said. “I couldn’t have done that if I didn’t think Davis was ready to be an everyday productive player for us.”

So the Sabermetric set aside, how does Melvin assess his Brewers, who, going into the weekend, had the largest lead of any of the first-place teams? “We’re not great, but we’re not bad either,” he said. “What we are is very balanced in the four important areas — offense, where we’re second (in the NL) in runs, starting pitching, bullpen and defense, where we’re considerably improved from last year when we had 24 errors alone at first base.”

WaPo: Ryan Zimmerman’s homer in 16th inning against Brewers caps longest game in Nationals’ history

A true deathmatch.  Personally, I’m disappointed: if the game had gone only one more inning, Adam LaRoche would have made his Major League pitching debut for the Washington Nationals.

MILWAUKEE — More than five hours after Tuesday’s game began, Miller Park nearly empty and only a handful of souls left to watch, Ryan Zimmerman’s monstrous swing mercifully put an end to the longest game in Washington Nationals history. Zimmerman’s two-run shot off reliever Mike Fiers in the top of the 16th inning, the first extra-inning home run of his career, gave the Nationals the runs they needed to finally get some sleep.

So much happened here on Tuesday night as it bled into Wednesday morning, enough to fill a short novel. Long after Jordan Zimmermann’s solid start in front of his home crowd, Anthony Rendon’s game-tying home run in the eighth, Ross Detwiler’s valiant four-inning appearance in relief and Denard Span’s game-saving catch in the 14th inning, Zimmerman hit the decisive home run to left field and Rafael Soriano notched his 18th save to power the Nationals to a 4-2 thrilling marathon win.
