Love it! Nothing to lose with this kind of signing...

What if he reaches the potential that so many thought he has, in a Brewers uniform, the team that originally drafted him?

NICE!

Wow. Watching some highlights from years past, he had some nice glovework at third. Any chance we have a trade with Shaw involved? Sign moose?

Since it's a minor league deal, no.

What a weird interview.. seems like what he needed was a sports psychologist more so than a doctor or specialist.

I read through it and I guess I don't really know what he was even trying to say. He could sound like a manure salesman with a mouthful of product if he can produce for the big league club.

Meh. Whatever.

One of the really great things about last year's team was the absence of knobs (other than maybe Braun).

Not a huge deal, but Lawrie is a class A knob.

"Well....cross him OFF, then!"

Comments like these get so sickening and repetitive...

When will this board ever stop beating this drum.

*sigh*

Yep. Don't think he'll be on the team at all though, at least not until September. This was probably all about the team option next year, after a year of working his way back.

He was a knob when he was 17, he was not a knob on last year's team.

I love incentive laden contracts. I wish there were more of these.

He probably won't make the team, that's fair. But I have to think he had his eye on Thames/Perez roster spots.

This is a pretty ridiculous statement. Everything we've heard is how Braun is a terrific, supportive teammate.

I can't imagine this has anything to do with Shaw but he should be able to outproduce Perez. Would definitely have him prove himself in the minors for a bit with his two year absence.

Welcome back, Brett!

I see this signing as an indication that we are not going to get an infielder who actually has a chance to contribute this year.

I also have fond memories of his potential but I question why we are doing this. We're not getting him for free, he's going to take playing time and ABs away from other potential infield options. Is the 2B market really that bad?

I hope it works out of course but I predict he will be released without ever seeing the big league club.
