Yeah that's about right. Top of the bleachers next to Fridays under the goodwill sign.

Body language not looking great for Arcia right now. It’s understandable. He’s just been that bad.

Lorenzo Cain’s homerun was a 109mph rocket he sent 418 feet. Flirted with clearing the Goodwill section in LF.

I have no way to back this up, but PHing for your pitcher with two outs and no one on seems like a wasted resource. I know the pitcher is done, but sometimes I wonder if it would be better to just let your pitcher hit and save the PHer for some other time. Maybe save him for a match up later in the game or something or with men on base? I wonder sometimes.


And let him get hurt? No. PH everytime you can.

Anderson, Nelson, Guerra. All batting/running. No thank you.

I've been saying this for weeks. Just so immature and I really question his dedication to his craft. He's not the future.

Let them just stand there and take the strikeout. My reasoning is that the PH being used is essentially worthless...so I guess using the pitcher let him stand at the back of the batter box for all I care.

Why even let pitchers pitch? They could get hurt doing that too.

Last time I checked, pitchers were professional athletes. The odds of them getting hurt as a hitter/runner are still very slim.

It sure is great to be able to win games after six innings.

Hader...Jeffress...Knebel. That is a winning formula if they can make the postseason.

Corey looks like he is back to me.

With him Hader, JJ, and even Jennings and Albers that is one hell of a bullpen.

And in the last 14 months 3 went down for long periods of time due to non-pitching injuries. I'd rather not chance those long odds any more than we need to.

Totally unfair to have someone like Corey Knebel as your 3rd option in the pen.

Its not about avoiding injury, it's about trying to give away as few outs as possible, particularly late in a close game. If a ph finds a way to get on base in the pitchers spot the top of the order comes up with men on, regardless of how many outs there are.

The Brewers - and their bullpen - are doing a pretty nice job of shortening games.

I’m surprised at how well Chase settled down today , sure looked like it may be a rough one, that was a pleasant surprise . Also encouraged by how good Albers stuff looked today also. Would have loved him in the 8th yesterday , just saying lol.
