This organization really needs Grisham or Ray to be above average players. We are going to have holes all throughout our batting lineup in the coming years. Stearns will need to hit on some more Shaw/Thames/Aguilar types of acquisitions.

The pitching staff is young and going to get younger in the next couple of years.

Just play Braun at 1B some. Man, it ain’t really that hard of a place to play.

7 singles, 2 solo home runs, 15 strikeouts

That's just the most Brewers thing ever....

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

[laughing] Yay! [laughing]

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals, Cubs, and Manny Machado, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

Hasn't Yelich also played quite a bit of 1B?

Although I don't think they want Braun playing anywhere but LF anymore and I think Grisham is pretty limited to either LF or CF.

According to Baseball Reference, Yelich has never played 1B in MLB. And there’s no reason to put him there. He’s an excellent corner outfielder and, because his arm isn’t strong, he’s perfectly suited for LF.

CC mentioned him playing there with Grisham getting the call.

Yeah, that's probably the way to go.

Just straight up replacing Cain 2 or 3 times a week in CF isn't a bad idea either if he can play at least a passable CF.

The team is off kilter. Nothing seems to be working. I would keep pressing. The most important wins are in the end. Ask Moose and Cain about getting hot at the right time.

Just think, we have 3 more years at 15 million per pop to watch Cain continue to downslide. That is not a good thing.

What a waste of money Grandal has been.


Huh? He's a catcher with a .374 OBP and an .850 OPS. He's been worth almost 4 wins already. He's been an absolute steal.

Yeah I don't know how you can justify giving a 5 year $80 million dollar contract to a 30 yer old unless he's a borderline Hall of Famer, which he's not. A pretty nice player, but not Hall of Fame material. Hopefully DS can move him this winter.

I see you're new here so I'll give you a tip on posting here. Click on the full editor button and you'll see an option for sarcasm.
