Yeah. I'm about good on Shaw.

He has had a really long leash.

But since he has options, its time to go to AAA to figure it out.

Tinfoil hat time --- Burch Smith is coming in to mop up the 9th, after pitching two innings last night. This is typically how this team uses a pitcher who is about to join the San Antonio shuttle. Unless they are going to activate Wilkerson from the 10-day injured list, there is no other obvious pitching candidate for a call up. Could they be looking at bringing up a bat for this weekend? Hmmm ...



Glad I'm not the only one who thought this was weird. A starter in the minors and pitched two innings 17 hours ago. I was thinking it was Jeffress' inning.

Anyone know when BA is back in the booth? Matt Lepay is about as good a standin as you can get, but I miss BA.


I missed him at first, but he is a distant memory now. Lepay has been great!


A part of me dies inside every time he says "breakeven pitch". Other than that, he's been fine.

I don't have a problem with BA expanding his horizons though. I think there was a pretty mutual understanding between us and him for awhile now that this was part of the deal and he could have moved on from the Brewers long ago if he had wanted to.

I imagine Smith is gone either way. They can call up somebody better even if they are not bringing up a batter.

I doubt Shaw is going anywhere but the bench for the time being. I've been wrong before when it comes to player moves, tough.

This game is getting way, way too interesting considering how many more runs the Brewers should have scored

Just throw strikes and you'll be fine, Josh.

"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 with only 18 pitches. With a day off tomorrow, I imagine he's just fine for Friday. Will be interesting to see what the move is now with Smith's likely option.

Yeah, I'm kind of there too. I don't see it, but I never would have imagined before last season that Santana would spend a good portion of the year in AAA.

When I last saw it was 7-1 after 6. I wouldn't have figured Craiger would need to drag 5 arms out of the pen in order to finish it up. Great series though. Great streak.

As usual the Cubs have their 3 lefties lined up to face the Brewers, so I suspect Shaw will be out of the starting lineup this weekend. He looks as lost as a hitter can be.

I am hoping that they beat 2/3 from the cubbies.PS Shaw does need to sit for a few games he is struggling.

The play of the game in this one was the double, or really error, hit by Thames in the 1st. It set up at least three runs.

Was really hoping to keep Hader off the mound, but low pitch count and day off makes me rest easy. I want him well rested for the stretch run. How good is Yelich? I laugh now when he hits a home run. Just unconscious.

Are you a Cubs fan?

While recognizing the Brewers 6 wins in a row, the Cubs winning 9 of their last 10 and 16 of their last 20 is more impressive. Bryant and Rizzo are smoking hot on the Cubs current homestand. The Brewers pitchers are going to be facing a much different challenge than they have faced the last 6 games.
