Milwaukee Brewers 2014 News and Updates
3/10/14 - Although the Milwaukee Brewers lost both of their split-squad games on Sunday, the squad has a chance to bounce back when they take on the Padres this Thursday, a game that will feature Francisco Rodriguez's first start of spring. Last week, the relief pitcher acquired his long-awaited work visa and flew out of the troubling situation in Venezuela with his family. This week at Maryvale Stadium, Milwaukee Brewers tickets start at $46 on Friday against the Diamondbacks and drop down to $14 to get-in this Saturday against the Reds.
3/3/14 - The Milwaukee Brewers kicked off Spring Training last Wednesday with a resounding victory over Oakland (11-3). The game was one of redemption for returned player Ryan Braun, who hit a massive homerun in his first at-bat since suspension—certainly one of the highlights of Week 1. The Brewers have a commendable 3-2 record, with their two losses coming against San Francisco and Arizona. Though the Brewers came out unscathed, Matt Garza had a rough first game with the organization during yesterday's game against Colorado, giving up 4 runs in the first inning. Three of Milwaukee's four games for Week 2 offer an $11 get-in price (3/5 vs. Oakland, 3/6 vs. Colorado, 3/7 vs. San Diego) except for Saturday's game against the Kansas City Royals, which has a $26 get-in price.
2/25/14 - At $26 on average, Milwaukee Brewers tickets have one of the lowest spring training prices in the league, but that may soon change!

The players reportedly want the dog on the roster to travel with the team, while GM Doug Melvin would like him in the management office—either way, get ready to see Hank in Wisconsin this year as he's already become a fan-favorite.
2/11/14 - The Milwaukee Brewers may have been quiet in early winter, but with spring around the corner, the organization made up for their low-key offseason. The Brewers signed some noteworthy additions: Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay (first base possibilities), and most markedly, Matt Garza. The 30-year old pitcher was dealt a 4-year, $50 million contract that gives their starting rotation a much-needed jolt.

Milwaukee Brewers 2014 Season
The Milwaukee Brewers are looking to overhaul both their roster and farm system this year, especially after last season’s disappointing 74-88 record has left them hungry for a rebound. The Brewers’ biggest move of this offseason came when they signed former Chicago Cubs
pitcher Matt Garza to a $50 million four-year contract, a major steal off of the free agent market. Because of their weak farm system,
… moreMilwaukee is reportedly trying to bag an impact player from the remaining market to fill out the rest of their infield.
The Brewers still have hard-hitter Carlos Gomes and Jean Segura, and now, Ryan Braun will make his anticipated return. Braun will be back in action this season, following his 65-game suspension for violating the MLB’s anti-drug policy. Hopefully he’ll be back to his 2011 NL MVP ways when he takes the outfield this year! The Brewers finished their worst record in nearly a decade, but with all this talent in the park, there’s nowhere to go but up!
For certain, these aren't the "Harvey's Wallbangers" of your father's era. But the Milwaukee Brewers do have a lot of offensive punch. Despite finishing third in the National League's very competitive Central Division. the Brew Crew finished third leaguewide last season in both runs scored and team slugging percentage. In the middle of all this power is 2011 Most Valuable Player Ryan Braun. In 2012, Braun posted a statistical "slash line" of a .319 batting average/.391 on-base percentage/.595 slugging percentage, for a total OPS (on-base plus slugging) of .987, tops in the NL; in addition, Braun also posted Triple Crown (batting average, home runs, runs batted in) numbers at or near league tops -- third in batting average, first in homers, second in RBI. Also adding significant punch was Corey Hart (30 HR) and Aramis Ramirez (27 HR). A favorable discovery for the Brewers was Japanese import Norichika Aoki, who was brought in as a backup plan if a suspension of Braun for performance-enhancing drugs was upheld, then won a starting spot in right field due to injuries. Brewers pitching proved to be their undoing, as only Yovani Gallardo finished the season in a Brewer uniform and had a winning record while qualifying for the earned-run title. The closing duo of setup man Francisco Rodriguez and closer John Axford proved to be quite effective, If manager Ron Roenicke can find some effective starting pitching in Spring Training, then Brewer Nation will definitely have something to look forward to in 2013.
