Ransom? Why not Gomez who can at least hit lefties? I do not understand Roenicke whatsoever.

I couldn't understand why the Diamondback's DFA'ed Ransom with such good numbers in AAA last year as a SS and great numbers at MLB this year. Now I do.

Ransom can come into the game and play short for Izturis, and Hart can stay in the game for Morgan (shifting Aoki to CF). I don't like Ransom hitting either, but I think I understand the logic.

Now watch it come back from commercial with Gomez in CF and see my head explode.

Man, Axford is just beyond awful this year. I will never understand why Brewers closers can never last longer than 2 years tops.

This is Jack Burton in the Pork Chop Express, and I'm talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there.

Yep, I HAVE see this one before.

Ax is just lucky his name doesn't lend itself to as many descriptive variations as does Turnbow.

I would have to think that Axford has to be kicking himself for not getting his long term deal done.

Well, at least we need not fret about how we're going to afford Axford in arbitration.

I like the Rays' strategy. They have had a different closer every year for 8 years in a row. The position isn't that special, there's no point in glorifying it. For some reason it's a big deal to pull Axford from the closer's role, but the rest of the bullpen roles can get reshuffled all the time.

Rock questioning RR's bullpen moves... Interesting development.

If I didn't know how dominating Ax was last year, and someone told me he was so dominating last year, after watching him this year, I would tell that someone he was a big fat liar.

Looks like we may have dodged 2 bullets.

I do n ot like the idea of tying up a long contract with lots of cash to a closer anyway, and Axford has proven why...

Barring a comeback against Chapman, the Brewers will be closer in the Central standings to the MLB-worst Cubs than they are to the Reds.

So much for that "one good week and we're back in it" argument.

I was going off your original post where you said Ishikawa is a waste of a roster spot.


Ishikawa IS a waste of a roster spot, he never should have been signed to begin with, he is WW fodder for a reason...


Which goes back to my original question which guy in AAA is a better infield option? Especially for a bat off the bench.

The Brewers aren't blessed with a bunch of spare good hitters lying around, as I said Ishikawa has OPS'd .740 at the major league level, not seeing any other bench guys available in AAA that have done that and Ishikawa has done just as much as Green in the minors while actually producing at a ML level hard to claim Ishikawa is waste of a roster spot given the alternatives this team has. Especially going back to the beginning when some thought Brooks Conrad was some obvious choice that the team was stupid to not have on the roster out of camp. Then the team was stupid for using him and congratulated for dumping. The bench weakness was pretty obvious from day one.

Well at least Gomez won't hit into a double play.

Fan is short for fanatic.
I blame Wang.
