This team stinks against lefty pitching

When you have to send Eric Thames up to face a lefty as your last hope in the 9th, your roster construction sucks.

Facts.

At this point Dubon and Saledino need to be added to this roster as well as Hiura just to combat the lefty situation.

Hard to disagree with this.

Please excuse me while I beat a dead horse for a moment...

This is exactly the type of night where having Hiura’s right-handed power bat in the lineup, even somewhere in the #5-#7 spots, would be very helpful. LHP Wade LeBlanc went 5 innings, and now they are going to face the Mariners closer, LHP Roenis Elías for 2 innings. The bottom half of the Brewers order isn’t intimidating whatsoever and they only have lefty hitters on the bench.


I fear opponents are going to continue adjusting their staffs to trot out every lefty they can find as long as the Brewers keep up with this odd roster construction. I may not have agreed with every roster move this team has made over the last couple years, but most can be easily explained. Keeping Hiura in the minors simply cannot.


It's all about placating Shaw.

The blind loyalty to a guy who was good the past two years is sickening. I don't think anyone wants to give up on Shaw entirely, but he needs to go down to AAA, figure some things out, and then and only then should he be allowed to come back up. I highly doubt Shaw's career is over, but he does need to figure things out, and the stubbornness that DS and company are showing in this particular situation is maddening.

I once worked with a Richard Wacker.

You really have to hate your kids to do that.

Can we stop with the argument that this is just a bump. After starting the season 8-2, the Brewers have gone 34-36 in their next 70 games with a run differential of -10. This is almost half a season of decidedly mediocre baseball that is trending toward the negative while playing some of the worst teams in MLB.

Trying to salvage a game in a series after losing the first two series after series is notbthe sigh of a playoff contender.

The shame of this collapse is the Cubs are still in neutral and so are the Cards. Brewers with component roster management and a couple of decent arms could be putting some distance between themselves.


This is foolish talk. We are right in the middle of the race. No need to pull away.

This statement is what's wrong with the Brewers front office. This must be a David Stearns burner account. No worries here. We are just fine. We are the WILDCARD!! This team is in trouble and anyone who says otherwise is just being a fan. no offense to fans but fans tend to bend towards fandom. I tend to bend towards reality.

Do the Brewers have any 9th Inning come-from-behind wins this year?


March 31st


That was one of the wins that make up my astounding 8-0 record for the season for games attended.

I would also like to add this:

If you can't start Aguilar against a lefty, good heavens, just go ahead and trade or DFA the man already. He's useless if he can't be used against LHP.

Potential moves:

Hiura up, Shaw down (duh)
Cain to IL, promote Dubon
DFA/trade Aguilar.
DFA Tyrone Taylor. Purchase contract of Trent Grisham and promote to 25 man roster (don't freak out, just until Cain comes off the DL, let's give him a cup of coffee, he's earned it. He's going to have to be added in the offseason anyway).

You don't see that very often. Yelich swing it back-to-back pictures out of the zone.


This has to be Yelich’s worst stretch of 4 games since before the All Star break last year. Not only has he had just one hit, but most of his ABs have been K’s or rolled over grounders to the right side.

The last couple of games gives you a freighting look at this team with a mortal Yelich. This team is so drab when he isn't playing like Mickey Mantle in his heh day. Reality is the only reason this team is still relevant is his greatness.

Says the guy with 1300+ posts in 1.5 years on an internet sports fan message board [tongue]


There are a lot of trolls here. I agree that Hiura should be playing. Other than that, I don't have any problems with our roster management. As far as having to use Thames, that's because Cain was out.

No, it's really not. Because if Cain wasn't out, he would have been starting. So you still wouldn't have had a righty option there.
