Aaron Wilkerson confirmed he pitched for #Brewers today on no sleep. Was told of call-up at 12:30 am after @missionsmilb 13-inning game. Packed, got crack of dawn flight, went to airport, came to D.C. and was in game in third inning. Didn't complain but admitted it was tough.

Interesting and probably not a good idea. Good for him to tough it out but there's got to be a better way.

I will be in my grave when the Brewers win a WS.

I don't want Chase back next year. He is exactly what we need to be trying to improve on. This organization needs to be forward looking about the pitching problems and the Chacin and Anderson of the world aren't quite good enough.

Prior to this game, among 64 NL pitchers with at least 80 IP this year, Chase Anderson was 23rd in ERA. Ahead of Strasburg, Syndergaard, Ray, and Darvish.

After this game, his 4.54 ERA would rank 45th, or in other words a #3/#4 starter.

But that's what we do around here, we overreact irrationally.

The wonderful thing about this game is that it only counts as one loss.

Anyone who thinks Chase Anderson is the answer is asking the wrong question.

The Brewers at best will have the money to sign one free agent starting pitcher. You need to have five of them.

What could have been done differently? It was just a freak thing where all the stars aligned poorly. Late extra inning MLB game, late extra inning AAA game, day MLB game the next day.

Wilkerson was never intended to be anything other than a sacrificial lamb today to come chew up a bunch of innings if needed and get a day's MLB pay and service time for his trouble.

Depends on who is back and what happens on the trade market but it's going to be tough when you have no prospects. Anderson 8.5 million dollars would go a ways towards bringing in other options.

Chacin is off the books after this year, another $8 million.

$16.5 million could get a decent option.

That said... Gio's pitched well, and could come back in the range of $5-6 million. Lyles has done quite well, and comes backk in the $4 million range.
