ESPN analyst: Mets need 'Ryan Braun-type' help

ESPN's Jon Sciambi thinks the Mets need help to move the needle on this year's team.

Brewers vs. Nationals: Sunday game report

The Brewers missed out on their first sweep of the Nationals since beating them three straight from May 23-25, 2011 at Miller Park. Only two players — Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy — remain from that team.

Ryan Braun was out of the lineup the day after the Brewers had a team off-day as manager Craig Counsell tries to keep his star leftfielder and other veterans fresh heading toward the all-star break

Brewers open six-game homestand without Ryan Braun

Back from a tough West Coast road trip, the Milwaukee Brewers open a three-game weekend series tonight against the Washington Nationals at Miller Park.

Series preview: Brewers vs. Nationals

Washington comes in leading the National League East and with the third-best record in the NL despite having lost five in a row.

Brewers vs. A's: Tuesday game report

Ryan Braun extended his hitting streak to six games, during which he is batting .423 (11 for 26). He batted .343 (12 for 35) on the nine-game trip with a homer and two RBI.

Trading Ryan Braun would not be as simple as it might seem

The combination of money owed, no-trade protection, health and history makes it more difficult to trade the star left fielder than one might think despite ongoing speculation.

Mark Attanasio says Brewers not actively shopping Braun, Lucroy

If folks thought trade rumors involving Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy were heating up, Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio splashed some cold water on them Thursday evening in Los Angeles.

Brewers vs. Giants: Wednesday game report

With Ryan Braun getting a scheduled day off to guard against overtaxing his lower back after off-season surgery, Jonathan Lucroy — playing at first base instead of catching — moved up to the No. 3 spot in the lineup.

Johnny Cueto is outstanding, Giants finish sweep of Brewers

The Giants took advantage of sloppy Brewers mistakes, winning their fifth straight game. The first thing to remember is that the Brewers aren’t really that bad. They were over .500 in May, and they were riding a mini-winning streak when they came into AT&T Park. Jonathan Villar, Ryan Braun, and Jonathan Lucroy are all hitting better than any non-Belt on the Giants. They’ve been enjoying some calm, steady seasons from a couple starters, including Jimmy Nelson before Wednesday. If you were expecting the Braves with vertigo, you were expecting the wrong team. The second thing to remember...

Giants notes: Matt Cain activated, Angel Pagan to return Wednesday, sizing up the Ryan Braun chatter, etc.

SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants won’t be back to full strength for some time, but they should be much closer by the time they conclude this three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers.   They activated right-hander Matt Cain from the… Continue Reading → The post Giants notes: Matt Cain activated, Angel Pagan to return Wednesday, sizing up the Ryan Braun chatter, etc. appeared first on Giants Extra.

Trade talks don't faze Ryan Braun

With the Giants missing outfielder Hunter Pence for a couple of months or so with a leg injury, it wasn’t shocking to see a report that they touched base with the Brewers about Ryan Braun.

Giants have had 'preliminary talks' about Ryan Braun

Tires are being kicked. Welcome to silly season. Ryan Braun is owed about $90 million over the next four-and-a-half seasons, and he's 32. Before you ingest any rumor, read that again. It's the warning that the FDA puts on the label. That doesn't sound like the Giants. I don't remember them absorbing that much money on an aging veteran before. Or half that money. Or a quarter of that kind of contract. However, that's not going to stop the rumors. Here's one from Bob Nightengale: The #SFGiants are looking everywhere for another OF, and have had preliminary talks with #Brewers about Ryan...

SF Giants Minor Lines, 6/12

Sam Coonrod bounces back from his toughest start of the year to pitch his best. Spotlight on Defense! Minor league FA Ali Castillo, a long-time veteran of the Yankees' system, has been a huge boost for the Richmond team this year. Once he qualifies (which he should within a week or so) he'll be leading the EL with his .331 average (nearly 20 points above the next highest), and he's no slouch with the glove either. Watch him start a tremendous, nearly Panik-esque DP in yesterday's loss to Portland. HIGHLIGHTS: Sam Coonrod allowed 1 unearned run in 8 innings with 8 Ks. Sacramento lost at El...
