What position player do we need to replace to make our offense so much better?

Outfield seems set.

1B? Thames will be back at some point, is he enough?

SS? C?

2B should be fine if our manager will allow Villar to play there every day. (not that 2017 Villar can't or won't come back. Could happen)

3B is set with Shaw.

Benching Santana (or Braun for that matter) for a AAAA guy like Choi is asinine. Just no excuse for it. None. It’s what makes me feel like Counsell might not be the right man for the job.


I don't know. All 3 have looked pretty bad this week...Braun is not Pujols bad, but je ia certainly providing less and less value.

Please stop walking Rajai Davis.

I'm with you on that. 100%.

Ugh, why nibble on Rajai Davis? He hits like a pitcher.

Is OF set? Two-thirds of the way, I think. Of course, we have very little realistic chance to move Braun or Santana at this point, and they wouldn't bring a lot back.

The downside of depth is that sometimes all your 1-2 WAR players look more like 1 WAR players all at once.

Agreed. May it be time to move around the order some?

I've never understood Villar hitting 7th. Bat him second and move Yelich into the three spot?

Cain
Villar
Yelich
Shaw
Aguilar

Had to come back with something with substance after my first ever post, long time reader, of course. [smile]

OF is set simply because of what you said. Domingo and Braun are here to stay. Yelich and Cain will play daily. I can't see any changes being made with the OF.

You can't stop Kratz, you can only hope to contain him.

7th has been a good for the Brewers this year. Hope it is today too...

Good start Kratz. Maybe Sogard can walk.

Santana has an option remaining (According to roster resource anyway); I'd look to use it. Play Braun, Cain, Yelich. Having Thames play LF or Phillips in RF on their off days may not be ideal (Due to defense and offense respectively), but to me Santana offers nothing right now. He's a poor defender (Defensive metrics like him so far this year, but they need a lot more data to be reliable. So I'll trust his career numbers), offers nothing on the bases. And he's not doing the one thing a DH type needs to do, which is hit. His approach and his numbers don't really suggest he's due to improve either.

Not that it'll make a huge difference, but I don't really see much of a reason not to do it.

Agree with this. Maybe seeing the ball fly out of CS will help Santana, and maybe Braun gets it going.

Edit: that was a pretty horrendous AB from Aguilar. Yikes.

How has Aguilar gone from looking like one of the best hitters in the league to one of the worst in a week?

Phillips doesn’t belong on the MLB roster. Otherwise I agree. He’s just not that good right now (maybe ever).

Raise your hand if you knew Oliver Perez is still pitching. If your hand is up, you're a liar.

He's pitched in 114 games the last two years.

These are the types of things I wish the MLB would get rid of. Tired of one batter relief pitchers. It’s a joke.

If I was an umpire I could never take Counsell arguing seriously. I'd just stand there and laugh at him.

That was a strike to Shaw. Stupid time to argue.
