I wish I could be a fly on the wall wherever Mark A is right now. Here's got to be less than pleased lately.


I'm guessing you would be permanently squished to said wall.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

There should be plenty of room for new faces come 2020.

Cardinals not that good, bad hitting team, ok pitching, nothing special. Cubbies should win, but that team underperforms like no other. If Woodruff was back like originally forecast, Labor Day, they could of had a good September, but now they say middle of September, takes all the wind out of the sails for me now. Reds might run out of games before they catch the Cubbies, but they are the best team in the central.

It just occurred to me that there is a real possibility that the Brewers will match last year’s loss total before the end of August. In fact, it’s more likely than not.

It's still hard to believe our deadline moves were neither to buy nor sell, but rather go get 4 junk pitchers to add on to the many junk pitchers already on the roster.

I could understand it if DJ was still here, who just seemed to have a knack for polishing up a turd and making it shiny, but Hook has no such magic to work.


I'm beginning to think that it isn't out of the realm of possibility that no one was buying what the Brewers would have been selling. Moose and Grandal haven't exactly been tearing the cover off the ball in the second half. Who else were they going to deal?


I think that's a possibility too. I still just don't understand the point behind anything we did.

We suck, oh well. I'm kinda excited for 2021, but struggling to find next year a whole lot better.

I think they figured Aguilar was going to be gone after this season anyway, so they were happy to get a youngish controllable arm for him. The Lyles move was simply to get a warm body capable of starting games, and the return was minimal. The Pomeranz/Black deal was puzzling. I liked it at first, but I'm starting to think that perhaps the Giants fleeced Stearns a bit in that one, even though I don't believe Dubon's value was especially high. Black does have one heck of a live arm, even though that FB appears to be as straight as an arrow.

Two veteran rentals and two soon to be out of option arms is not playing for the future.

2021 they should have a lot of payroll flexibility and it's likely decision time on Yelich so it seems likely that it's a season for a final push a la 2011 or at least a year they decide to trade him for a nice haul.

Next year, who knows, lots can change, but there are problems here and our impending FAs aren't helping.

On another topic......I know the MLB draft is a crap shoot.......but Gavin Lux is destroying AAA pitching....a Wisconsin kid that Dodgers picked 20th.......when we picked Ray at number 5.

Would have been a nice option for our future SS.........

Ok,I'm done......

A new SS and a couple of quality pen arms and this division was ours for the taking.

But also because this division stinks.

They weren't going to get quality pen arms. They have nothing to trade unless it's an actual good player off the MLB roster which isn't solving any problems.

Hindsight is also 20/20. Ray was seen as a good solid pick by pretty much every draft expert at the time. You are right, it is a crapshoot. The fact that the Brewers have two former 1st round rookies up and performing well right now probably defies the odds.

The brewers were better off keeping Dubon instead of adding those two duds.

Dubon is a dud. But I probably would have kept him with that return.

Any hard hitting questions from Sophia and Tom?

"Weren't you impressed with Gio tonight?"

"Cain, he looked good in his return tonight, yeah?"

"What are you having for breakfast in the morning?"
