Brewers returning to ball-in-glove logo for 2020, unveil new uniform designs for 50th anniversary ce

And now, for some lighter news….

What was once old is new again.

That was the Milwaukee Brewers’ message as they announced a branding overhaul Monday night at the Skyy Lounge at Miller Park. The team confirmed growing rumors that they are returning to the clever, memorable ball-in-glove logo that came to identify the team until 1994, when they moved on after a 25-year run.

But this is not your parents’ ball-in-glove.

The Brewers gave it some modern flourishes, connecting the “m” and “b” that form the glove, changing the color from royal blue to navy blue and putting two seams on a now-centered baseball to give it a more authentic look. Club president of baseball operations Rick Schlesinger said the intent was to stay true to the nature of the original logo while bringing it forward to mesh with a rebranding of player uniforms as well.

Brewers’ Christian Yelich tweets harshly at Yu Darvish over accusation

Although a lot of people are talking about banning technology to deal with this problem, technology might provide the solution. Why not have wearable Bluetooth devices where the catcher and pitcher communicate? A lot of catchers already wear wristbands with notes. Why not replace them with a couple of buttons for pitch type and location?

Moustakas, Grandal go onto free agent market

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Mike Moustakas and Yasmani Grandal declined their mutual options with the Milwaukee Brewers, becoming free agents.

Moustakas, who turned 31 in September, is a free agent for the third straight offseason after earning $18.7 million in a pair of one-year deals.

He hit .254 with 35 homers and 87 RBIs this year for the Brewers, earning his third All-Star selection. After starting the season at second base, he moved across the diamond to third when Travis Shaw slumped.

The Nationals won their first title. Who’s next?

When I was a kid there were two immutable truths about baseball: the Boston Red Sox were cursed and the Chicago Cubs were losers, however lovable they might be.

Four World Series titles in the bag make that Red Sox curse seem rather quaint. The Cubs’ 2016 title — and four or five straight years with them considered rich and powerful contenders — put that lovable loser thing to rest. Time marches on and the stuff you believed about the world when you were a kid becomes inoperative as you grow older.

Young baseball fans today carry with them a different set of assumptions about who are baseball’s haves and who are baseball’s have-nots. To them the Sox and Cubs are and always have been alpha teams. Those powerful Braves and Indians teams from the 90s are only vague memories. The Dodgers have replaced the Braves as that great regular season club that can’t seem to get over the hump. And, of course, there are a handful of losers, some lovable, some not-so-lovable, that seem destined to never win it all.

Last night’s win took the Nationals out of that category. Their October surge — complete with five wins in elimination games in which they trailed at some point — forever vanquished the narrative about how they had never won a postseason series and kicked the memory of those 90-100-loss Nats teams from the first several years of their existence into a deep, deep hole.

A consideration of the chances that the six teams that have never won the World Series have of getting out of that club.

Brewers almost certainly going back to ball-in-mitt logo for 2020

There have been a number of rumors that the Milwaukee Brewers would be getting rid of the “M-with-the-barley” as the primary logo and going back to some version of their classic ball-in-mitt logo next year. Now we have at least partial confirmation.

Chris Creamer of Sportslogos.net posted a photo last night of what appears to be the new/old logo being used in a preview of a 2020 Topps baseball card set featuring mascot Bernie Brewer. The blue on the glove is darker and there are a couple of very minor changes to it, but it’s basically the classic logo, complete with the sorta hidden “m” and “b” which comprises the top and bottom of the glove.

Something for the uniform fans among us.

Brewers GM makes bringing back Grandal, Moustakas a priority

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers are hoping Yasmani Grandal and Mike Moustakas will be back next season after the team made back-to-back playoff appearances for just the second time in franchise history.

Grandal and Moustakas have mutual contract options. Grandal, who led NL catchers with 28 homers, is likely to decline his $16 million option, and Moustakas could be a free agent for the third straight offseason if either side declines the infielder’s $11 million option.

“I don’t think it’s particularly controversial that I’d love to have both of them back,” Brewers general manager David Stearns said Friday. “They are two very good players that fit with our organization and our team very well. Whether the realities of the free agent market permit that is something we will have to evaluate as we go through the offseason.”

Milwaukee finished second in the NL Central this year with an 89-73 record. The Brewers played the last part of the season without slugger Christian Yelich, who broke his right kneecap Sept. 10.

The sound you here is a certain regular getting rather excited…..

St. Louis Cardinals win NL Central; Milwaukee Brewers settle for wild card

The St. Louis Cardinals clinched the NL Central on the final day of the regular season Sunday, routing the Chicago Cubs 9-0 to secure their first division title since 2015.

Manager Mike Shildt and the Cardinals began the day with a one-game lead over Milwaukee but used Jack Flaherty’s arm and Matt Carpenter’s bat to ensure there would be no need for a division tiebreaker game Monday.

Flaherty pitched seven impressive innings, and Carpenter led a three-homer attack with a three-run drive to help St. Louis advance to the NL Division Series, starting Thursday at Atlanta.

“This is what it’s all about,’’ Shildt said. “I love to see the guys enjoy the fruits of their labor—it’s something special.”

The one race of the season still active on the last day- is it just me, or is that a little low compared to the last few years?

Improved Pitching Is Fueling Brewers’ Postseason Push Without Christian Yelich

September constitutes its own weird frame of reference for MLB—speed and distance are harder to accurately discern, everything passes too slowly or too fast, the stakes are either so high that you cannot look down or so low that the situation is all flattened out. The usual standards do not apply.

So, from the perspective of this late-season weirdness, when Christian Yelich fractured his kneecap on September 10, it seemed fairly clear: Milwaukee’s season was over. The Brewers would not return to the postseason for a second consecutive year. An extreme reaction to one injury? Sure. But the team was one game back of the second wild-card; Yelich was not only their best player, but arguably the best in the National League; and their proximity to a playoff spot had been possible only with an extreme hot stretch that seemed like it would be difficult to sustain even under the best of circumstances. Their remaining schedule was fairly easy (four of five series were against losing teams), but even so, there was no room for error; FanGraphs put their postseason chances at just 25%. The stakes were just too much, and Yelich was too good. There was too much time to fill. From this frame of reference, Milwaukee was, if not screwed, dangerously close to it.

But, of course, it wasn’t. The Brewers’ Wednesday win over the Reds clinched their postseason spot. Even without Yelich, they’re going back to October. They have not just survived the last two weeks. They’ve dominated them. Since Yelich’s injury, Milwaukee is 12-2, part of a greater run that’s turned on the strength of what was formerly their biggest weakness: In September, Brewers pitching has been crucial to their success.

Milwaukee’s staff has ranged from clear problem area (in the spring) to serious liability (early season) to, at best, simply fine (late summer). As a group, it’s never been a particular positive. And now?

Not what any of us were expecting two weeks ago, is it?

Brewers 9, Reds 2: Ryan Braun’s first-inning grand slam helps punch a second straight postseason tic

CINCINNATI – The Milwaukee Brewers wanted desperately to punch their return ticket to the postseason on Wednesday night.

Ryan Braun was more than happy to oblige.

He hit a grand slam off Tyler Mahle 20 pitches into the game, Eric Thames hit a solo home run two pitches later, and the Brewers coasted from there to a 9-2, wild-card-clinching victory over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Keston Hiura also went deep against Mahle in the second inning, helping chase the right-hander from the game after only 2⅓ innings.

And, with this, the National League playoff picture is largely settled- all the teams are clear, and only the NL Central still has a race left.

Brewers move into tie with Nationals for first NL Wild Card

The Brewers, once left for dead after outfielder Christian Yelich suffered a season-ending injury, defeated the Pirates 4-3 on Sunday afternoon. That, paired with the Nationals’ 5-3 loss to the Marlins, moved them into a tie for the first NL Wild Card. The Brewers are 10-2 since Yelich’s injury.

During Sunday’s game, the Brewers brought a combined perfect game bid into the seventh inning. It ended when Gio González allowed a one-out single to Bryan Reynolds. The Brewers’ four runs came on two Eric Thames homers and an Orlando Arcia homer. The Pirates mounted a rally in the eighth inning, scoring three runs, but Josh Hader came in and slammed the door, getting the final four outs.

Is it just me, or, between this and how the Yankees have been doing, are injuries not having the effect that they usually have on a team?

All the Brewers could do was look on as reigning National League Most Valuable Player Award winner Christian Yelich sat in pain near home plate during his first at-bat of Tuesday night’s 4-3 win over Miami at Marlins Park. After the game, their worst fears were confirmed: Yelich sustained a broken right kneecap and will miss the remainder of the season, the team announced.

LEADING OFF: Strasburg vs Braves, Lorenzen does it all

DOING IT ALL

Michael Lorenzen is making himself valuable wherever the Reds need him. In his latest performance, he did something no major leaguer has done since Babe Ruth in 1921.

On Wednesday, Lorenzen earned the win as a pitcher, hit a home run and played the field as Cincinnati beat the Phillies 8-5. Lorenzen pitched two innings, connected for a two-run drive and finished up in center field.

There’s something to be said concerning versatility….

Brewers injuries may take all the drama out of National League playoff race

At this point in 2018, the Milwaukee Brewers were headed for a September surge that would help them overtake the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals atop the National League Central standings.

One year later, as we prepare to flip our calendars to September again, there’s a much different outlook in Milwaukee. And because of that, there’s a much different outlook in the NL playoff picture.

Injuries have overtaken a Brewers roster that had undeniably disappointed between March and August, but was still considered dangerous enough to finish strong again in September and perhaps push for another division title or wild card berth.

With that looking less likely, the question now becomes: Will another team emerge to create chaos, or will the National League playoff picture actually be void of any real drama down the stretch?


I don’t know about that- there’s still a strong race for the NL Central, and there are still several teams with a decent chance of getting the wild card.

LEADING OFF: Wild-card hopefuls set for key weekend series

STILL FIGHTING

The Rays got themselves off the ropes by rallying late to beat Houston on Thursday night, ending a four-game skid. Now the AL wild-card hopefuls open a pivotal three-game home series against Cleveland. The Indians are 2 1/2 games ahead of Tampa Bay for the top wild-card spot, with Oakland one game ahead for the Rays for the second. All-Star Game MVP Shane Bieber (12-6, 3.23) is set to pitch or Cleveland against RHP Austin Pruitt (2-0, 5.57).

PULLING AWAY?

The Cubs host the Brewers hoping to bury another NL wild-card competitor after sweeping the Mets over three games this week. Chicago pulled five games ahead of New York for the second wild card and is four games ahead of Milwaukee. LHP Jose Quintana (11-8, 4.05) will start for the Cubs in the matinee against RHP Chase Anderson (6-3, 4.34).

This competition is not just in the majors- in Triple-A baseball, many playoff spots are still in contention with only a few games left in the season.

Who’s Going to Win the Chaotic NL Wild-Card Race?

The National League wild-card race is a big stupid mess. With Sunday’s games in the books, six teams are within five games of the second spot, with Washington and St. Louis hanging onto postseason positions for dear life. How long they can dig their fingernails into the cliff for the next six-plus weeks depends on whether the group behind them can put together a run. The Mets are the latest of those clubs to get red-hot, but even that blazing stretch has only put them in the thick of the race instead of at the top of the heap.

Is there a favorite, though, in that stew of squads? To find out, let’s dive into each of the eight teams still vying for the two wild-card spots and decide which pair are the better bets to play on into October. The playoff odds below originate from FanGraphs’ projection.

Son, at the rate it’s going, there will be no winners of the NL Wild Card race- only survivors.

Brewers pull plug on Brett Lawrie experiment without return to action

The Milwaukee Brewers pulled the plug on the Brett Lawrie experiment Tuesday after insufficient progress was made during 3½ months of the unique project.

The Brewers signed the former major-league infielder to a minor-league deal at the outset of spring training with the understanding that he needed extensive physical rehabilitation after suffering leg and hip injuries with the Chicago White Sox in 2016. He was released by that club the following spring.

The hope was that Lawrie, 29, would eventually get back on the field with a minor-league affiliate but the process never advanced to that point, so it was mutually decided to part ways, according to Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns.

“Everyone tried their best,” Stearns said. “Brett gave it a very good effort. I know our training staff worked hard. At this point, it just made sense to move on.

Brewers option Keston Hiura to open spot for Travis Shaw

This was a surprise.

Preserving depth on a major-league baseball team sometimes means having to make tough decisions, and the Milwaukee Brewers made one Monday afternoon.

Rather than lose a player they value, the Brewers optioned second baseman Keston Hiura to Class AAA San Antonio to open a roster spot for the return of third baseman Travis Shaw from minor-league rehabilitation assignment with that club.

In making that announcement, Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns made it clear that it wasn’t anything Hiura failed to do in proving he can perform at the big-league level. Rather, it was a move made entirely because of roster considerations.

Ryan Braun pleads case to special panel Thursday trying to avoid 50-game suspension

I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to play this game, and I am appalled that you would begin a three-member panel inquiry with a topic like that!

Ryan Braun, the National League’s Most Valuable Player, pleaded his case Thursday before a three-member panel that will decide whether he faces a 50-game suspension for testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone.

The appeal came just two days before Braun will accept his MVP award at the New York Chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s dinner Saturday night at the New York Hilton, sources familiar with Braun told the Daily News.

A decision by the panel, which includes MLB Players Association executive director Michael Weiner, MLB executive vice president for labor relations Rob Manfred and independent arbitrator Shyam Das, is not expected to come before Braun accepts his award. It was unclear if the hearing would continue into Friday.

...The Milwaukee outfielder, however, is playing a game that no major leaguer has won; despite conflicting reports, no player has ever seen a suspension overturned by the arbitration panel, according to people familiar with the process.

It is possible for a player to test positive for a banned substance and see his case dismissed in advance of arbitration because of chain of custody or other issues, without the public ever learning of his positive test. But Braun is past that point, and is looking to the arbitration panel as his final chance to avoid suspension.

The Onion: Prince Fielder Wondering If He Has Truly Free Agency

NEWPORT BEACH, CA—After meeting with his agent Monday to discuss his free agency prospects, Prince Fielder told reporters he was left wondering if he or any man can ever say his agency is truly free.

“Free agency suggests I am able to make a choice void of any constraint, but right from the get-go, that premise is problematic,” said Fielder, adding that it isn’t as if he can just get a job as an acoustical engineer, or even as a professional athlete in another sport.

“In the end, I am not an autonomous entity who can choose a path based on multiple options. Instead, I am one link in a causal chain, so my actions are merely the inevitable product of lawful causes stemming from prior events. What I’m saying is, I’m essentially limited to the 30 baseball organizations in North America; realistic, long-term socioeconomic factors have already decided which cities can support a team that pays the kind of salary I demand; and roster decisions dating all the way back to the invention of the game have determined which teams are in need of a first baseman today—so there are only a few clubs that could logically take me. And human nature will compel me to pick the one that offers the best, highest salary.”

Fielder concluded the press conference by saying that he is essentially a determinist, and that he enjoys hitting baseballs.

BBWAAH, must we?

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who faces a 50-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug, is expected to speak at a banquet where he will accept his award for being voted National League MVP.

Braun will appear at the annual awards dinner of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Saturday in New York, a spokesman for the player told The New York Times.

“He will be there and he will accept his award,” Matthew Hiltzik told The Times.

...He has not made a public appearance since news of the positive test broke on Dec. 10. Hiltzik told The Times that Braun does not intend to do interviews Saturday. Braun was named MVP on Nov. 22.

K-Rod signs for $8 million

Why make billions when you can make millions?

The Brewers have struck a one-year deal with Francisco Rodriguez for $8 million, avoiding what could have been a complicated arbitration case.

Rodriguez had a base salary of $11.5 million last year and was a free agent who unexpectedly accepted the Brewers’ offer of salary arbitration last December.

The Brewers plan to use “K-Rod” as a setup man for closer John Axford. His agent, Scott Boras, views him as closer material, and thus the stage was set for an interesting philosophical debate.

Instead, this deal was struck, leaving the Brewers with three players in arbitration: RHP Shaun Marcum and relievers Kameron Loe and Jose Veras.

Rodriguez was acquired from the Mets at the all-star break last season and formed a dynamic 1-2 punch with Axford. In 31 games, he compiled a 1.86 ERA and held batters to a .209 batting average. He logged 33 strikeouts in 29 innings.
