The Continued Costs of Miller Park

Fun With Pythagoras: Doubt

Entering Sunday, the Brewers bats had posted their best offensive output of the season, a runs scored total so large that a mediocre-to-bad offense suddenly had a much more positive season trend (or at least closer to average). Our Beloved Milwaukee Nine extended a four game lead over the nearest National League Central rivals w, […]

BPMilwaukee Exclusive: Robot Ump Experiment

Baseball Prospectus is, in general, at the forefront of ball-tracking systems, and Wayne Boyle, Sean O’Rourke, Jeff Long, and Harry Pavlidis have spent countless hours researching and writing about the the technology, and flaws inherent in all current ball-tracking systems.

Jesus Aguilar’s Quality Swings

Runs Prevented Rankings I

Over the last couple of months, some comments based on Runs Prevented have helped me to re-evaluate how I present the statistic on the website (and, by extension, on BPMilwaukee Twitter, where I publish the Brewers Daily Pythagorean (or Run Differential, RS / RA) record). Thus, in March I posted a basic explanation of how […]

Weekend Recap: Peralta’s Stunning Debut

The Brewers had another successful week, going 4-2 against Cleveland and Colorado. Since both teams are currently over .500, those will count as Quality Wins, showing that the Brewers have earned their spot as leaders of the NL Central.

Tyrone Taylor is Requesting Reinstatement on Your Prospect Lists

This time last year, the story of Tyrone Taylor looked like it was heading down a classic minor league path: Flashy prospect flames out. Taylor had just spent a second frustrating year in Double-A Biloxi, and was set to embark on a disheartening third tour of duty. It would have been unthinkable a few years […]
