Davis smacked first pitches at a historic level.

MLBTR arby guesses Cesar Jimenez (3.083) – $1.0M Jean Segura (3.065) – $3.2M Wily Peralta (3.033) – $2.8M Will Smith (2.155) – $1.2M I've been figuring Wily and Jean for $3M each and Will for $1.5M just for the sake of round numbers, but...

Another day, another horrible decision by a school.

Another at-least-theoretical trade candidate is Cody Asche. Per Salisbury, the 25-year-old drew interest from the Marlins and Brewers this summer. While his value isn’t exactly on the upswing, Asche might be worth more to another or...

And to think, Lewis and Clark mapped out this entire country. They wouldn't get ten feet from home before their journey was called on account of humidity or barometric pressure fluctuations today.

I must admit, I'm disappointed that there's no bagels or mcgriddles on the menu all day. I do enjoy a breakfast burrito, but it's kind of an add on.

Got this in an email today...I have to wonder how dumb people are.

It's a broken system. The only way to fix it is to abolish it and start over.

Why MI? Look at the size of those things. Wonder if it has something to do with WI being a driftless area during the Ice Age?

Spent the entire day getting taxes done using an online prep service. As a wise woman once said, "It's enough to make a preacher swear." Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna shuffle off in front of a truck.

Everyone is predicting Murphy and Williams end up on the Brewers' staff, so I'll go ahead and throw another couple names in the ring. Fred Dabney has been with the Brewers since 2003, working in the minors as a coach and coordinator. He's renowne...

Brewers say they are retaining hitting coach Darnell Coles and 3B coach Ed Sedar. Narron, Kranitz, Tunnell, Guerrero, Shelby are out.--Adam, MLB.com Sadly, when Craig brings in his own people, room has to be made by getting rid of folks. Tunnell...

Sabathia checks into rehab...almost like he hoped they'd miss the playoffs so it would not interfere.

Most of us realize you cannot fix every problem, especially random acts of violence. Much like the kamikaze pilots Japan used effectively during WW2, the response's success was minimal. The difference between the left and the rest of us is they k...

Brewers expected to announce some changes to the coaching staff by midweek. Counsell meets the media again Thursday morning.--Adam, MLB.com Craig likely to bring in a few younger guys, more of his generation, at least, that would be my guess, tho...

Having spent the last three days reading about tiebreaker games, three way tiebreaker scenarios, and division and wildcard tiebreakers, allow me to say once again...you are all incredible losers. If there's a tie, MLB has planned for it. A couple ...

Why? Because people buy them.

Another day, another ridiculous decision by a school.

Wow. And, it's the prettiest darn lake I've ever seen as well.

Apparently, round one, two, and comp balance draft picks are all protected...I just thought first rounders were. I'm surprised no team has not picked a player or two in a weak year and went cheap, knowing the worst case scenario is an extra pick ...

The further we get away from it, hopefully we’ll look at it and recognize it as a turning point for the franchise.--Ryan Braun Ironically, regardless of situation or context, Braun offers up better copy than those who are paid to come up with m...

The other current manager who could end up on Counsell's staff is Matt Williams, a former D-backs teammate. We'll see.--Adam, MLB.com Craig was very well traveled in his MLB career, so he probably played with 3-4 dozen current major and minor lea...

Brewers will pick 5th in next year's June draft. More importantly, given they have about a 85% chance to get a competitive balance pick in the lottery they hold each season, the Crew will probably have 5 picks in the top 110 or thereabouts, and o...

In the survivor/eliminator leagues, 8.4% were still alive before this week, though I assume ARI losing knocked out a few folks. I am only in one official league, but we're all just playing for the runner up prizes, as everyone lost in week two, m...

Counsell's original top choice as bench coach is now available. If the Brewers are interested in Ian Kennedy, as Heyman wrote the other day, they will have another up close opinion on him. I know many will hesitate to sign a veteran arm in what l...

2,542,558 ends up being the season attendance for the Brewers, meaning the correct hypothetical bet would have been "over."

Counsell hints at more deals to come, says there will be plenty of competition in spring training and he feels "significant change" will occur. Lind, Lucroy, Braun, Davis, Garza, Segura, Gennett, KRod, Jeffress, and Smith would all draw plenty of...

Rangers, who have clinched a playoff spot, have used their closer and main set up guy five days in a row, which seems directly related to them having no one rested to close the game out yesterday. I get it, you don't want to play in the one game w...

I barely ever look at the standings, never mind the expanded ones, but HOU's run differential is simply outstanding. They have been very unlucky this season, seven wins under what they "should" have. That speaks well of Stearns and for the Astros...
