I'm not going to go as far as to say that Kimbrel wouldn't have been a fit in the Brewers' pen, but he is being paid like an elite closer, and he is no longer an elite closer. I doubt he'd be amenable to pitching in other situations, too, as Counsell likes to do with his relievers.


He's not a fit for the Brewers pen. He only pitches in the 9th, and he won't/can't pitch in any other inning other than in 3 out save opportunities. That's not how the Brewers pen is managed.

I can't believe they keep pitching to this guy. What a hitter! After all those years of watching Rickie Weeks try and hit breaking balls, we deserve this guy.

only thing sweeter than the shot of Epstein disgusted by Yelich's greatness will be Hiura winning this game.


I'm just saying!

Braun isn’t in the game anymore.


Well I got 1 out of 3 anyway.

I think they probably would have been able to adjust to make it work, but that's a useless guess at this point. A strict stubborn closer is perfect for an old-school fossil like Maddon.

Credit to the boys. Great pitching first two nights. Yelich and Hiura are leading this second half surge. Not surprisingly.

WON'T. Won't be selling. Dang auto-correct.

Or I suppose I could have just put that in blue.

Look at Theo AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


That shot of Theo after the Hiura dinger should live on in meme form for decades.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

The ONLY thing that is a little bit frustrating is the wait so long to score runs...Yes, they have won he games and that's all that matters but man it would be nice to not always have to wait until the 7th inning to see them score. [laughing]
