Your Brewers second-half stopper = Jordan Lyles.

I'm sorry, I think Hader would be a disaster as a starting pitcher. He doesn't even have a second pitch, much less a third.


He might be forced to actually use his pitches though.

Not the hero we deserve, but he’s the one we need right now.

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.

Granted they were both only 5-inning starts, but Lyles has looked good. I wonder if the Brewers identified something he was doing as a Pirate that was leading to him getting the crap kicked out of him?

Is it safe to say the league is starting to figure out Harder?


What's the career trajectory for most pitchers of his profile? If I'm Stearns, I'm looking to see what I can get at the winter meetings.

I remember after the trade they mentioned on the telecast that CC said there were a couple of things they noticed.

Not that he won't revert to his career averages eventually, but fingers crossed we can squeeze a few more good starts out of him beforehand.

Now hopefully the Brewers can get some luck and have the Nationals, Phillies, Cubs and Cardinals all lose

Villar would ironically be a great fit for this roster.

Arcia is probably glad he isn't here or he'd be losing a lot of time at SS.


He profiles correctly (decent enough switch hitting IFer) as something we need, but I think it was clear he was a bad fit for this team. His stats aren't really much different than they were last year as a Brewer but nobody missed him when he was gone.

Probably goes without saying, but tonight was a much needed win. I rarely do W/L predictions, but I have a feeling the Brewers are going to win a few more this week. Hopefully they can win the next four and head into Sunday’s game versus the Rangers’ Mike Minor with a chance to propel right back in the middle of the race for the NL Central.

I mean... Yelich. Wow. You have to raise the payroll and significantly improve the pitching staff with a guy like him around. I was hoping Peralta would keep it up to be a trade chip in the offseason but it looks like we’ll have to get pitching help via free agency. Yikes with their continued horrible bullpen

Oh hey BA is back. The National Darts Championship quarterfinals over?

I miss Matt Lepay!

BA is ok, though.


Unfortunately Matt has a day job. [wink]

I really wonder about Counsell’s job status this offseason (or even before then)


I never understood the excitement by so many when Counsell was first hired. [ho hum]

Yes, he might be using his fast ball too much and guys are waiting for it.
