We chose to give tons of at bats to Peterson and Sogard and gave very few to Holt who is better than both.


Dumping him when they did was confusing at the time, and it continues to be. I think there must be something more to the story. I wonder if it was a case of him just never feeling comfortable here? Or something along those lines? We forget that these guys are human, and sometimes the fit just doesn't work for whatever reason. Of course, that is complete speculation.

... and there's the dominant, shut-down inning from Knebel I talked about earlier LOL. That sure would have been nice a couple innings ago [sad]

I think it might be time to take Knebel's training wheels off for this weekend. Five games in four days, they are going to need him in high leverage spots. We can't keep tossing Claudio and Yardley out there in those spots.

Maybe the idea of sogard and the other scrubs playing ahead of him was more than he could take and it really effected him badly.

This team would be how many wins better if Cain didn't opt out?? 2-3??


If Cain stayed as close to as hot as he was at the plate to start the year, and he eliminated the need for all the pathetic Peterson at bats, I’d say that’s worth at least 3 wins.


Peterson - .346 wOBA, 115 wRC+
Yelich - .347 wOBA, 115 wRC+


Oh, I don’t argue the stats. But the contract (and the MVP pedigree) plays, so if Cain and Garcia take ABs from anybody, it’s Peterson.

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

A scenario that is lining up now...

The Brewers are going to be 27-28 at night’s end.

With the Cardinals currently down 6 runs lets predict they end the night at 27-26.

If the Brewers take 3 of 5 from the Cardinals they will finish 30-30.

The Cardinals would be 29-29 and likely have to play a double header against the Tigers on Monday.

The one thing he did do was walk a bit. Now he's swinging at first pitches every time. Guess it happens when you don't play much.

The Reds are planning to have Bauer pitch against the Twins on Sunday (3 days rest again) and he’s still in the game at 100+ pitches and counting.

Yeah, they aren't going to re-sign him. So they are going to run his arm into the ground. Might as well call that being Sabathia'd

Congrats to Yelich on the worst at bat by any player on any team this season.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

The MVP just swung at a pitch that bounced two feet in front of the plate. Just awful.

Yelich just looks done up there. That’s unbelievably bad.

You have to wonder if Yelich is taking this season seriously. I mean I get that he has to be but that's the only explanation for that ab.

Barring an all-time great start by Burnes tomorrow and a Bauer stinker this weekend, yeah, this CY Young race looks just about over. Still an amazing season for Burnes. Great work.

He probably had four fingers on it already. Wonder if there's ever been a Cy Young winner who was entering free agency two years in a row before? Cole got a massive deal out of the Yankees, and I predict Bauer will be a Yankee as well next year. Monopoly money.

I would say likely. If he wins the final start.
