  • Brewers at forefront of shift movement
    Adam McCalvy,
    Infield shifts have seen more usage in recent years as advanced statistics build. The Brewers have been one of the leaders in this movement, using more shifts for over a decade.
  • Brewers relying on infield shifts
    Adam McCalvy,
    In today's game, shifts get used often to align a defense properly for each hitter. A proper shift is more than just an alignment, and knowing the data is critical.
  • Wily Peralta Throws the Slider for Strikes, Gets Results
    Jack Moore, BP Milwaukee
    Sunday was another rough day for Peralta even though he was credited with a quality start. However, there is some encouragement from Peralta's ability to throw his slider for strikes.

Other Notes

  • Estimated TV Revenues for All 30 MLB Teams
    Craig Edwards, FanGraphs
    The Brewers rank 25th in TV revenue out of 29 teams with known revenue. Only four teams rank below them, and the Dodgers massive deal still outpaces the rest of baseball.
  • Baseball bats fear the wrath of Carlos Gomez
    Liz Roscher, Big League Stew
    Carlos Gomez breaks baseball bats when he's angry. He's improved at it recently, and only needs one attempt to break a bat now.
