  4. Hey Football Fans, Convert Me

    I consider myself to be a pretty typical American sports fan. I'm a huge fan of the NFL and Major League Baseball. I get pretty geeked up for the NHL playoffs, and I sit in awe at the athletic ability of many NBA players...

  6. Jeff Suppan Was Not the Opening Day Villain

    The Brewers had a rough Opening Day yesterday. A 10-6 loss to a team that they dominated last season is not exactly the best way to start the 2009 season. Many fans and pundits are already blaming Suppan and ready to ship him out of town...

  7. What I Expect: The 2009 Milwaukee Brewers

    After a 2008 season that will be hard for fans to forget for many years, the 2009 Milwaukee Brewers have just as high expectations entering the season. Much like 2008, no one outside of Milwaukee has very high hopes for this team...

  8. What I Expect: Bill Hall

    Bill Hall seems to be the Brewers player who everyone loves to hate. For whatever reason, I just can't bring myself to get on that bandwagon. I guess you could say I'm the No...

  9. Kansas City, Here I Come

    There are two passions in my life that rise above pretty much everything else: baseball and history. The two seem to get so intertwined, and so much of what has happened in baseball is a significant part of American history...

  10. What I Expect: Braden Looper

    Braden Looper was a bargain signing for General Manager Doug Melvin, and should Looper pitch well for the Brewers in 2009, he could turn out to be the piece that cements Melvin as a great GM in Brewers' history...

  13. What I Expect: Jeff Suppan

    Jeff Suppan has faced grief from Brewer fans since the first day he signed with the team. His production for the Brewers has matched his career output, but his lackluster first half swoons has had Brewer fans ready to cut ties with the veteran righty...

  14. What I Expect: Mike Cameron

    When Mike Cameron signed a two-year deal with the Brewers before the 2008 season, few thought he would be around long enough to see the end of the deal. Many thought Cameron would mentor Tony Gwynn for a season and Gwynn would take over in 2009...

  17. What I Expect: Dave Bush

    Dave Bush must be a fan of roller-coasters. I say that because that has pretty much been the path his career has taken with the Milwaukee Brewers. He has experienced some incredible highs, as well as some very crushing lows...

  18. What I Expect: JJ Hardy

  20. What I Expect: Yovani Gallardo

    Destiny is a funny thing. It is pretty amazing how one thing can lead to another. The 2008 Milwaukee Brewers were destined to make the playoffs. Unfortunately for Yovani Gallardo, a torn ACL was the price he had to pay for the team's success...
