    Bad Boy Brewers Powered by Pitching
The Milwaukee Brewers have been turning heads this season, leading the N.L. Central division, and becoming one of most hated teams for fuddy-duddies across the country. The return of Biogenesis poster boy Ryan Braun, and his continued success at the plate, has confounded fans who enjoy railing against PED users as much as they like cheering for the home team. Add in the continued antics of center fielder Carlos Gomez and the Brewers’ surprising early season success has traditionalists reaching for the nearest antacid.
Braun’s success shouldn’t be surprising given the incredible numbers he’s posted in his career. To assume that all of Braun’s prior success was entirely driven by PEDs is as silly as thinking that he’s currently 100 percent clean. Braun served his time and is back to bashing baseballs. He’s a joy to watch hit even if he is an admitted liar, cheater and jerk.

    Buck Showalter’s Hot Corner Dilemma
The Baltimore Orioles have been hovering around .500 in the early going of the 2014 season despite a shortage of power hitting and quality starts. The pitching figures to be a season-long concern but the home runs will come. The biggest problem facing manager Buck Showalter, at least over the next few weeks, is the club’s quagmire at third base.
Manny Machado, Baltimore’s All-Star third baseman and shortstop of the future, is about to begin a rehab assignment and could return to the lineup in early May. In Machado’s absence Showalter has been playing Jonathan Schoop, Baltimore’s second baseman of the future, at third. Schoop surprised club officials and fans with an impressive offensive showing in Spring Training and won the second base job. Since then the 22-year-old has been shifted to third base due to Ryan Flaherty’s continued offensive ineptitude and J.J. Hardy’s injury-plagued April.

    Funky Friday: “Busy Earnin’” by Jungle

    The Yangervis Solarte All Stars
I tuned into the Yankees/Blue Jays matchup on the first Friday of MLB’s regular season expecting to see Toronto’s artificial turf giving fits to New York’s thirtysomething keystone combo of Derek Jeter and Brian Roberts. Instead I found the unlikely, and equally unheard of, combination of Dean Anna and Yangervis Solarte manning the middle infield for Joe Girardi’s squad. Who? Of course Solarte laced a pair of doubles and drove in three in route to a 7-3 win for the Yanks. The Yankees’ broadcasters were gushing at Solarte’s exploits as I surfed over to baseballreference.com in search of more information on New York’s unknown infielder.
The 26-year-old Solarte currently leads the American League with six doubles and is hitting over .300 in the small sample size that is early April. The former Twins and Rangers farmhand has started games at third and second for the Yankees. While Solarte has been an early season revelation, Yankees fans, and their homer broadcasters on YES, should pump the breaks before predicting big things for the Venezuelan. In eight minor league seasons Solarte amassed 41 home runs, 33 steals, and a .733 OPS. Solarte’s sudden rise to prominence in the Yankees’ lineup says much more about the sad state of New York’s infield than it does about Solarte’s long-term big league viability. Solarte strikes me as similar to former Red Sox infielder Pedro Ciriaco, another career minor leaguer with underwhelming numbers, who emerged from nowhere to hit .293 for Boston in 2012 and just as quickly crashed back down to Earth.

    Versatile Bonifacio Sets Table for Rebuilding Cubs
The Chicago Cubs didn’t make many headlines during the winter. The team’s biggest news was whiffing on Japanese import Masahiro Tanaka. Chicago did make several smaller moves designed to stabilize the team and build a bridge to the influx of prospects expected over the new few seasons. The under-the-radar addition of Emilio Bonafacio has been a huge boost to rookie manager Rick Renteria’s lineup over the first two weeks of the season.
The Kansas City Royals released Bonifacio after his dismal 2013 season prompted the club to sign free agent second baseman Omar Infante. The Cubs added Bonifacio in mid-February hoping that his speed and versatility would be better served in the National League. The 28-year-old has established himself as Chicago’s leadoff hitter and the reincarnation of former Tigers’ Mr. Everything Tony Phillips. Bonifacio has already started games at third base, second base, and center field. His hot hitting and versatility has allowed Renteria to mix and match youngsters like Mike Olt, Junior Lake, and Ryan Kalish depending on pitching matchups. Cubs fans shouldn’t get too comfortable with Bonifacio among the league’s leading hitters (he has a career .670 OPS) but his versatility should pay dividends throughout the season.
