The Brewers have developed an All Star starting pitcher!

Why did he replace Hader? Did Hader decide not to go?

Pretty awesome for a guy who a lot had given up on as anything more than a back end starter or good reliever before the playoffs last year. He went into the offseason and completely overhauled his approach to pitching and started throwing the 2 seamer much more often and it’s made all the difference. Hopefully this is just the start for Woody!

So Hader is out until after the break. We better score 15 runs the next two games.

"You're not going to have him when you want him and you're going to run out of games. He can't pitch 90 games. It's just not going to work. If anyone thinks it's going to work, show me how."- Craig Counsell on Josh Hader.

Hader is hurt? Screw that

Woodruff might be a better hitter than some of the guys there

I admire your "always look on the bright side of life" demeanor, but I do have to doubt Woodruff is a better hitter than t any of the position of all stars.

But he is a sound hitter, just sayin.

Woodruff definitely deserves it. Too bad about Hader and hopefully will be better after the break.

The weight of carrying this bullpen definitely can cause back stiffness.

Pretty cool for Woodruff! Not sure who the NL manager/picker is, but guessing this was a nice gesture to replace a teammate with another teammate who was arguably All Star worthy himself.

Not really a gesture as Woodruff fits the mold of a high K type of a pitcher that are normally picked for the All Star teams. In the NL Woodruff is ranked 5th in strike outs, 6th in K/9 and 6th in K%. I would say he is rather deserving to be picked to replace any pitcher who would have been held out of the All Star game.

I didn’t say that. Actually noted he is worthy himself. I just don’t think it is a coincidence he is replacing a Brewer.

Hopefully the Hader injury is just a wink-wink injury so he wouldn't be wasted in a pointless exhibition game. The way it came up pretty much out of now where I'm almost sure that's what it is, especially if they knew Woodruff would be his replacement.

Big congrats to Woody!

There are three things America will be known for 2000 years from now when they study this civilization: the Constitution, jazz music and baseball. They're the three most beautifully designed things this culture has ever produced. Gerald Early

Not just an all-star, but Wood is all-class!

i don't understand how you can say the brewers have 5 allstars, when you replace one for another, isn't that just 4. if hader stayed in, woody wouldn't have made it. semantics and not a big deal, but just saying....

Players that are selected as All-Stars but can’t play in the game due to injury are still All-Stars. Players that are selected as injury replacements are All-Stars as well. Pretty simple.

I don't think these facts are what he's questioning. I think he's pretty much saying that you don't really get credit for another all-star because one of yours sits out and is then replaced by another one of yours.

I don't really care to be honest, but I get his point. We had 4 players picked/elected to the ASG and one come in as an injury replacement.


Now we just need Burnes to figure things out and put it all together like Woodruff has. That could easily be our #1 and #2 pitcher the next 4-5 years. They're both capable of being really good #2 starters.

I think that'll happen... Woodruff did the AAA/MLB shuttle a couple of years.
