Braun is right near the top in games played. Only yelich Grandal and Arcia have more. And only by a small amount.

Misconceptions about Braun? You don’t say.

How is he doing in games started, though, I wonder?
He does do a fair-share of pinch-hitting.
For instance, Braun has played in virtually the same number of games (one less) than Cain with 15 fewer walks at that ... and still has more than 80 less AB's than does Cain at the beginning of today.

Gonna be nice watching baseball again next year without crushing hope and expectations. Getting to just watch the few solid players, the few rookies we'll have, etc. Last year was perfect because it was kind of a surprise. This year sucked.

Bat Grisham 1.
Bat Hiura 2.
Bat Yelich 3.

You can flip-flop 2 and 3 if you want ... everybody else ... whatever will be, will be.


Versus RHP I would go with:

1) Grisham
2) Yelich
3) Hiura

That way Yelich’s speed can be more of a factor. For example, he is a threat to steal 2B, or even to score from 1B when Hiura hits a double to the gap.

Judging by how this years team has been managed, I fully expect Burch Smith to get called up and Trent Grisham sent down tomorrow.

The scary thing about that is they are going to bring someone up to play backup SS at some point. If they send Grisham down as the corresponding move I will be furious.


Shaw needs to go down


You feed the cat and it keeps coming back....we can't be rid of him, apparently

On pace for 115 starts and 147 games played. But could fluctuate with Grisham coming up. But it’s safe to say that Braun isn’t the problem people are looking for.

Well, that puts an exclamation point on the season.

"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.

Braun isn't the problem, I just don't think he's that good of a player anymore where his day to day prescense in the lineup really makes a big difference one way or another.

With that being said, his RISP hitting (.922 OPS) has been very good this year which is what we have really been lacking in the lineup. Everyone else seems to have a big problem with situational hitting.

Shaw with 2 hits and if not for a great center field play would have had a third.

It's something.

Well that guarantees another 20-30 starts. Although he can't make this offense any less offensive than it is.

Could this series, this week, and this season be any more anemic?

I think the great chemistry of a team having fun like they did in 2017 and 2018 is gone, and a total collapse like in 2014 is a real possibility.

It’s been a downhill battle, but the Brewers will probably be passing the Reds soon.

In the old days you could look to September call ups to see some future stars with the Crew at least. Can't wait for this tear with Perez Saladino Taylor Williams and Burch Smith. Gonna be sweet.

Maybe the facts have been lost in the chain of custody... LOL

Nice. I needed a good chuckle!

I'm looking forward to Devin Williams at least. Hopefully Supak will be up as well. Maybe Burnes can remember he's been excellent prior to this year, as well?

Honestly Braun needs to become a first baseman next year. I’m not sold on Thames being the full time guy next year. Cain will probably be here so you have to give this Grisham guy a chance. Cain, Yelich, Grisham, gamel outfield. Make Braun play first

If we had a choice of signing Grandal or moose next year who would you choose

I’m almost inclined to sign moose. I really don’t want to go into next year with Shaw at third. He might bounce back or he might be just done. Then what the hell,do,we do


Neither. Get garret cole.

In the postgame interview Counsell said Grisham will start some games in Pittsburgh which I interpreted as meaning more than one.
