  1. Making case for Brewers to win NL Central

    Christina Kahrl

    You can forgive people if they've been waiting for the other shoe to drop concerning the Milwaukee Brewers. They weren't expected to win the National League Central, after all, let alone threaten to own the circuit's best record at the All-Star break...

  2. Brewers' fixes to Ryan Braun's absence

    Christina Kahrl

    After a week of keeping Ryan Braun on the shelf, the Brewers finally accepted the inevitable by moving their star slugger to the DL with a strained oblique. Retroactive as it might be, we'll see if he's back by May 12. As Stephania Bell noted when Ch...

  3. Everything's A-OK with Norichika Aoki

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you have a guy who clouted more than 50 extra-base hits as a rookie and stole 30 bases. Among batters with 450 or more at-bats leading off, this guy finished fifth in the majors in OBP, getting aboard at a .355 clip. You see a guy do all of th...

  4. Gomez deal with Brewers a win-win

    Christina Kahrl

    Carlos Gomez's $28.3 million extension with the Brewers is the latest example of a win-win agreement. It's a nice, midrange-stakes deal for which the player gets something around his market value and the club exploits its direct relationship with him...

  5. With Gamel back, Brewers OK without Hart

    Christina Kahrl

    The news that Corey Hart is going to miss the first six weeks or so of the season might seem like a huge setback for a Milwaukee Brewers team that hasn't achieved much this winter. Hart is a free agent after the 2013 season. If the Brewers aren't con...

  6. Why Hamilton will head North, to Milwaukee!

    Christina Kahrl

    It's the big question of the winter: Where will outfielder Josh Hamilton go? How much and for how long is sure to elicit squeals of outrage and satisfaction, of course. Rather than root for somebody's checkbook, I'm here to say why the winter's bigge...

  8. Brewers-Dodgers generates its own drama

    Christina Kahrl

    From beginning to end, this was baseball as it oughta be, any night and every night, from a first-pitch beginning to a dramatic finale. The Milwaukee Brewers came away with their second consecutive walk-off win when Ryan Braun's bases-loaded sac fly ...

  9. Brewers might import former 'next Ichiro'

    Christina Kahrl

    The Brewers already have all sorts of trouble to sort through. Prince Fielder left town to entertain offers involving oodles of cash, and Ryan Braun is looking at a 50-game suspension for allegedly possessing more testosterone than even Dos Equis' Mo...

  10. Brewers still short at shortstop

    Christina Kahrl

    Heartbreak in Dallas didn't entirely belong to the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans. The Milwaukee Brewers, their direct rivals in the National League and for the 2011 pennant, had to endure their own series of setbacks. Between the disappointments...

  11. Arbitration the choice for three free agents

    Christina Kahrl

    With Wednesday night's deadline for free-agent players to accept arbitration offers from their teams, it's interesting to see that three accepted: Designated hitter David Ortiz with the Red Sox (via the story Gordon Edes broke for, re...

  12. NL Central: Three fixes for each team

    Christina Kahrl

    Now in its last-ever season as Bud Selig's six-team division, the NL Central gave us the league's pennant contenders, and figures to give us one of the most interesting offseasons of any division in baseball. Not least because the challenges confront...

  13. NL MVP vote reassuring or exasperating?

    Christina Kahrl

    The expectation was that the NL MVP would be a two-man race, and the Baseball Writers' Association of America delivered exactly that, with left fielder Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers coming out decisively ahead of Dodgers center fielder Matt Kem...

  14. SweetSpot's NL MVP take

    Christina Kahrl

    Tuesday's National League Most Valuable Player vote probably isn't going to inspire quite the same outcry as Monday's American League outcome. That's because the AL MVP race gave us reasons to re-explore the reliably entertaining debate about whether...

  15. No medal for fourth place in SS race

    Christina Kahrl

    You've already seen the Jose Reyes rumors. If he makes a decision to sign with the Miami Marlins, the team would suddenly have two of the very few playable people at short between the former Met and Hanley Ramirez. Such a signing would make an alread...

  16. Astros' move consistent with Selig's past

    Christina Kahrl

    The Astros' eventual move to the AL West was something we all knew was in the works. Now it's set for 2013, the latest move in Bud Selig's long, successful and reliably Machiavellian stewardship of the game. You can wonder if it would have happened h...
