    For the Milwaukee Brewers, their season could not be off to any better of a start: the Crew just completed an undefeated 6-0 trip. When asked about the feat, third baseman Aramis Ramirez had the following explanation.   "We're doing everything right. That's why we're winning," Ramirez said.   It certainly seems that way. With an overall 7-2 record, the Brewers are off to their best start since the 1998 season, first undefeated trip of at least six games since 2008, and best road record since 1987.   "Let's keep it up," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "Great pitching again, big...

    When tipoff between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Kentucky Wildcats occurs this Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a lot more will be on the line than a a victory in the Final Four: there will also be the deep philosophical question of whether it will be beer or bourbon.   A friendly wager between Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is garnering cheers of support, as Beshear has pledged to send a fully stocked Kentucky bourbon bar to the Badger State if they should win; but if the Wildcats should win, Walker has pledged to send beer, brats and cheese...

    If the polar vortex ever decides to retire, then the return of the birds and the gradual rise in temperatures can finally signal the coming of spring. And for those of you baseball fans, that means the advent of spring training!   The Milwaukee Brewers reported to Arizona for spring training at Maryvale Baseball Park and were accompanied by the expected litany of die-hard fans. But what they weren't expecting was to be adopted by an adorable canine. The stray dog was reportedly wandering around the ballfield, and the goodhearted guys started caring for him, dubbing him "Hank" after the great...

    Darren Sharper, former Packer safety, could be facing a sentence of up to 30 years in state prison.    On Friday, prosecutors charged the 38 year old former football player with raping and drugging two women in California, while he is still under investigation for the same charge in five additional cases across three other states.     The alleged incidents occurred over the past five months, following a supposed pattern in which Sharper would meet women at clubs or parties, lure them to his hotel room, and proceed to drug and rape them. The motion filed alledges that two incidents...

    Third time must be the charm in the case of Brewer's prodigal son and veteran reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who is reportedly returning for a third stint with the crew.   On Friday, Rodriguez signed a one year, $3.25 million base salary and another $550,000 available in incentives. The Brewers designated their reliever Donovan Hand for assignment, in a move to open up room for 32 year old Rodriguez.    "I was interested in bringing 'K-Rod' back," said Brewers general manager Doug Melvin, "and he was interested in coming back.
