With the off day tomorrow I think Counsell is just giving a bunch of the relievers a little work, knowing that one of Williams or Jackson might have to start Tuesday or Wednesday and the bullpen is going to be severely tested with 9 games in 9 days. He probably doesn’t want anyone in the pen pitching more than one inning today.

And Stearns stands pat with that and all our injuries...just bring up another AAA pitcher.

Brewers are pretenders at the management/ownership level. Money trumps success!

We cannot get to the postseason in successive years without blind luck with young guys or previously so-so players having career years.

Guys I wish we could cut now:
———————————————-
Aguilar
Saladino
Arcia
Shaw
David Stearns for not bolstering the pitching all season


Oddly, the only one of those I really care to cut is Braun. The difference between Braun and Gamel/Grisham would be so insignificant. The salary is not.

Just noticed that Goldschmidt is 0 for 3 today as he bids to homer for the 7th straight game.

Yes, we should trade all our bad minor league players for several stud major league players.

Not sure why Arcia didn't stick with his 2 strike approach from the past. He could be a .290/325/700 hitter with it.

He's never going to slug enough to make this attempt work.

Have we put a ball in play on something other than a popup today?

Man, this place was great the past couple of days. Now we are back to this crap. Lovely. [rolling eyes]

There's the Orlando we know. Has a major league team ever been in this bad a shape in the rotation and been a game out of first place? It's unbelievable. They literally have nobody to start the next two games in the whole organization that you would say good call. It is a slap of reality that is for sure.

How about retaining Miley?
How about going after a free agent?
Wilkerson, Jackson, Burch Smith, etc ... not gonna do it!

If there was something Arcia could do that would make him a .290 hitter, I'm sure he would do that thing. He's just not that good.

How many more popups for Shaw before we completely ignore his performance at San Antonio and send him down until September roster expansion?

Stearns probably had no interest in getting a C because the Brewers need a C. It makes much more sense to trade for 3B when it's not needed, and then move the other 3B to 2B, then trade for a 2B, but since the 3B is now at 2B, then the new 2B goes to SS

Wade Miley with five scoreless innings. His ERA down to 3.06 and all for less than five million. [angry]

His quiet footed oppo 2 strike approach could make him at .290 hitter. He'd just be a singles and doubles at best guy. He also walked more waiting back on the pitch instead of trying to be a slugger. Guy had spells when that was working where he hit north of 300.

It's just gone for some freaking reason.

It feels like he would try to do his own thing and struggle. Then he starts to listen to the hitting coach and have a hot streak by staying back and going the other way. Which causes him to get a big head and go back to doing things his way and sucking again.

I dont know if that's actually happening, but his approach is weird and maddening at the same time.

Not gonna lie. When they did not offer Miley I wasn't to bummed by it . Figured that we had our three young guys that looked real promising, unfortunately only 1 has panned out as a starter. I think we will see something happen tonight. Hindsight is easy.

Young guns...

I'd buy it. I've heard it time after time... Arcia hits a HR, well here comes a cold streak.

and F U Happ. 3 BBs and you turn on the ump for the called 3rd strike when it clipped the edge.
