Started a new eating regimen Sunday. I have had some success going low carb, but have had trouble staying on it for extended periods of time. In fact, I've put on about five pounds in the past few weeks, eating hardly any carbs and having a cheat ...

We don't have a strategy on ISIS yet.

A very tiny group is fascinated by tie scenarios. Why? I don't really know. Ties are mildly interesting, but are hardly a big deal. Even if four teams tie for a spot, as minutely possible as that is, that's only three games over two days. That sai...

No excuses on Elian's misplay of the grounder, but the error should be all Yo's on the throw...he stretched for the ball before knowing where the throw was going, a common young 1B mistake. Let's not forget, Herrera is not a SS by trade, but is pl...

Another American beheaded, and the toughest adjective they can conjure is "appalling."--David Burge They're a mighty fine groups of leaders in DC. Other than completely ignoring foreign policy and a domestic policy run solely on "taxes too low, g...

Jason reports these are being sold in Hawaii in every store. Sadly, I bet they end up being even worse than you expected.

Our government does a fine job. I think we should look at expanding their power ASAP.

CF Carlos Gomez has brace on sprained wrist and expected to miss at least a week if not more.--JS Less hurtful because of the Parra acquisition, but that takes away depth, a good LH bench bat, and speed. Sprains are often slow to heal as well.&nb...

Badgers' basketball sent this pic of Sam Dekker out today. Awful tough not to like this team.

I fully expect some team to pick up Mastroianni just to PR in September. He has a career 80% SB success rate, probably 90% or so versus RHP. He's no Billy Hamilton, but his numbers replicate Mel Stocker's, who the Brewers used for just such a purp...

So, the Brewers added nine players thus far. Considering most guesses were for "a couple," it shows how little attention most pay to the team and their hints. I had 5-6, though I did not count Nelson's return or Broxton being traded for, or Garza ...

Tom H refers to Matt Clark as a 1B/3B, even though Matt has never played 3B in his pro career. He has played some LF, though he has played far more at 1B than anywhere else. So folks, dig deep to pay for the JS coverage...it's really good. For t...

Gindl DFA'd, Burgos released, to make room for non roster additions. Caleb's down season was magnified by how many LHP's Nashville faced (and his inability to hit them), but by any measure, putting up a 750 OPS versus AAA RHP was disappointing fo...

And how does he react to these truthful displays of disgust? With complete and total disdain. How dare they notice his incompetence?

No team that was in first place on July 1 is in first place right now.--BP Long season. Plenty of ups and downs. 

Unconfirmed reports have the Crew bringing up 1B/3B/OF Jason Rogers, SS Hector Gomez, and 1B Matt Clark. The latter two are not on the 40 man roster. I'm a bit surprised there's not another arm in the mix. As for clearing spots, Ariel Pena and Ca...

Bo Porter suffers the same fate as Dale Sveum, and for the same reason. Young players are not going to be good at everything, so they need a teacher, a positive role model, and someone who will not yell and scream and call them out in the media. ...

Wooten not being in the first wave makes me wonder if he may be taken off the 40. He pitched poorly in Nashville, but has been plenty passable in MIL.

Brewers still with a second wave of callups to come, and some are not on the 40 man...have to make room for them. A good defensive SS and a power bat would look good with another arm or two.

All I know is public schools are worse now than they were yesterday...but not nearly as bad as they will be tomorrow. It's a steady downhill slope.

This is why blighted areas get that way...because no one wants to own a business there.

Schafer, Pagnozzi, Wang, Garza, Broxton added to roster, Nelson reinstated. Likely a couple more after Nashville's season ends, probably Wooten and Rogers. My guess of 5-6 was pretty good, as I could not have predicted Broxton. Those that thought...

I work with baby boomers almost every day. I think this is true, for the most part at least.

Obama has even killed PT summer jobs. Note that those numbers are down from 30+% at the end of W's term to under 20% now. That's an astounding drop in just half a decade.

The consensus is beginning to clear up...he just ain't very bright.  I've said it for a long time...when you have no plan or actual guiding beliefs, every decision has to be thought about in agonizing detail. It took almost a year for him t...

Brewers would not include Jimmy Nelson in any trade, including David Price talks.

No Schafer, Rogers, Wooten or Blazek in tonight's Sounds' game, but my longshot pick, Brent Leach, did pitch.

I must admit, Doug seems very prophetic and genius like, as a month ago, right before picking up Parra, he said he was only interested a 4th OF that could play CF.

I have to wonder if Doug is making any calls about a CF given Carlos' injury. An OF of Davis/Parra/Braun is certainly not bad, and Schafer and Herrera in reserve is not either...while the backups lack power, not a lot of guys with pop available th...

Just showed Martina Hingis in the crowd. Oof. Hey, I know I'm no Bob Redford either. Martina is 33, and she looks like she's in her mid 40's. Looks like she's wearing more makeup than a bus full of cheerleaders. Don't do drugs kids. You stay in...

Schafer not in Nashville's lineup tonight, I assume he has already boarded a plane to Chicago...heck, he might be there already. Weisenburger, one of the catchers who might be considered for the "just in case" duty is playing. We'll see what pitch...

Suddenly, everyone seems to notice the Cubs' future looks very bright. I've seen it coming for ages. All you had to do was pay attention.

Looks like I was incorrect about Jungmann not having to be protected on the 40 man this offseason. He was signed in 2011, but did not pitch due to high innings in college. That season still counts, however, I was just thinking he needed to pitch i...

The Brewers have been affiliated with the Class AAA Nashville Sounds since the 2006 season, and stayed there despite the team playing in outdated Greer Stadium, a 37-year-old fossil that will be put out of its misery after this season. The Soun...

BREAKING: Brewers acquire Jon Broxton from Reds, per Rosenthal. Broxton signed to a $9M deal for next season, his option for 2016 now becomes mutual. Huge trade for the Crew, to get one of the best set up men in the game for the last month. He ...

And do you know why there's so much more ice now? Because it's warmer!! And that causes more cold weather! Because that's what climate change is. Those deniers are just darn fools! Notice the US media just pretending that report never existed, j...

Currently watching NCAA singles champ Nicole Gibbs play a 3rd round match. She's no Anna Kournikova...but she's very, very impressive.
