Brewers News

- Ryan Braun has slipped to second among NL outfielders in All—Star voting. The Brewers as a whole are still fairing quite well.

- The Rockies come into town Tuesday. Good news: they swept the Cardinals. Bad news: that means they are hot.

- The draft is Tuesday. Many are calling for the Brewers to take a pitcher with the 26th pick of the draft. OnMilwaukee feels the same. Personally, I don’t think they should stray away from the Jack Z strategy of taking the best available, whether that be an arm or bat. Look how good picking pitchers in the first round has fared the Brewers in the last ten years.

- This mock draft has the Brewers taking a college arm.

- has the Brewers taking a high school arm.

- How about a Big Ten arm?

- Bernies Crew has them taking Matt Davidson, a high school third baseman.

- Brew Crew Ball analyzes Brewers pitch selections.

- Brew Town Beat asks, How Can We Get Corey Hart Back?

- THANK YOU Miller Park Drunk. You did it again.

- When I saw this article, I just shook my head. I'm glad Chuck Hacks picked up on it. And I thought Chicago journalists were stupid.

- Brewers fans are happy to have, what seems to be, the Prince Fielder of the ‘07 season back. I agree with this article completely. Prince obviously appears much happier and that is certainly part of the reason he has been swinging a great bat. Doesn’t everyone in baseball always talk about how mental the game is? This is likely more proof of that. I also can’t argue that Prince is the MVP of the team at this point, though my personal vote would go to Yovani.

- Dude, put your monies on the Brew Crew!
