Don't sleep on the ghost of Jordan Zimmermann. It'll haunt you!

1 year, $8.5 million. I sure as heck hope he really wanted to pitch in Seattle, because if the Brewers weren't offering someone with his kind of talent more than that, shame on them.


Spot on, that's really disappointing. That is a steal for Paxton.

They did give Chacin 2 years, $16 million but yeah, seems like it’s an organizational philosophy not to hand out even moderately sized contracts to pitchers.

Drew Smyly got $2.5 million more than James Paxton.

Baseball free agency is weird.

Wong signing was nice, but it is starting to look like a huge failure of an offseason. I guess we're back to square one a few months ago when the rumor was Mark A was unwilling to commit much money and was looking to reduce payroll. If only "they" (by which I could mean Justin Turner's agent making things up) hadn't gotten our hopes up.

Hear ya. Imagine how frustrated this board would be had they not signed Wong? I get that the team probably lost quite a bit of money last year, but yeesh. The Central is there for the taking. Would have been nice to see the team be a little more active.

We don't know that he would have come here for that same amount, though. But I definitely would have gone 1/10 or so.

I mean he lives in Wisconsin, so he's literally already here!


I mean I live here too and don't really like it. [laughing]

But that's probably because it's been below zero for seemingly the last 74 days.

Fair enough, I'm sort of with you on that!

Paxton spent a lot of years in the Mariners organization, so it isn't far fetched to assume he had a preference to go back there.

C.J. Cron signed a minor league deal with the Rockies. I believe a few folks here were hoping the Brewers would consider Cron earlier in the offseason.

Jason Kipnis to the Braves on a minor league deal. Have to think he's got a solid shot of making that team as a utility guy and 3B insurance for Reilly.

Why do you think Kipnis can backup at 3B?? He has never played there & his arm isn't exactly the strongest...

Deductive reasoning. It's his only path to any playing time with the Braves, as 3B is their only real question mark. He's going to have to be a super utility guy to make the team.

Just because a scrub like Shoemaker signs it doesn't mean the Brewers won't sign another starter. Still quite a few decent starters available.

Nothing good outside of Walker and Odorizzi.

Brett Anderson does nothing for me.
Porcello is garbage.

If anything, the Brewers need a back-end starter. Anderson was totally fine in that role last year. It would be nice to have a lefty in the rotation if Lauer falters.

Yep I'm all aboard the Brett Anderson train which is weird because I disliked the signing last year. But especially if we keep Urias/Robertson at third, he should succeed with our defense

Great deal for the Twins getting Shoemaker. I was hoping the Brewers would sign him. Really disappointed in how this offseason is playing out.

If Matt Shoemaker excites you than heading in to 2021 Freddy Peralta should be Brandon Woodruff and Corbin Burnes excitement level combined for #5 rotation starter.
Shoemaker is a horrid SP during full seasons. His resume fits perfectly with a guy who belongs overseas.
