Yeah I know baseball is ruined and ther Brewerw are almost as severly hampered by Princess Prieb as they are the lack of revenue sharing, but Im still excited. I am probably crazy but I think the Crew should be .500 this year and if Sheets, Wright, Quevedo, and Nuegebaur pitch up to their potential and we dont swing at everything, I think the crew can win 90 and be in the wild card race late, which is something we havent seen in a long, long time. They must finish over .500 to avoid 10 years straight of losing seasons. I think it is time for a coup to remove Princess Prieb.

walk off walk for Shaw, put it in the W column

Great pitching by JuniorG, 6 strong innings,  2 innings of Haderade, then 2 outs for Knebel before he started walking guys, blown save ... Jeffress number comes up, gets 4 outs and the win

Sogard gets a single, ends up scoring the winning run

Was starting to look bad, ended well !

Knebel should be last option of 3 at end of game. Why does Counsell have to mess with whats working?

Very much on board with sending Arcia down.  A little cocky for a guy batting .194, regardless of the glove work.  Maybe some time down in the bushes will deflate his head and he'll work on getting his stick going.  Always seemed to work with Broxton when he'd get sent down.  Saladino may be a small downgrade for the defense, but a huge upgrade for the offense - at least for now.

Bandy needed to go.  Hopefully DFAed to be released.  Just isn't ML material.  Picking up a vet for backup a likely good move, much like Vogt was last year.  Hopefully still has gas in the tank at 38.

---- thanks for the news murman

Good analysis dude

I have no problem sending Bandy down, decent catcher but hasn't contributed to the offense in a long long time

Bethancourt was hitting the crap out of the ball in spring training,  and a decent catcher, and more or less a veteran, so the acquisition of another catcher sorta surprised me, thought Bethancourt would have been a good bench guy with a bat

But must yield to the guys collecting a check from the Brewers

Sogard is truly a warm body.  Clearly the plan is to play Saladino until he goes cold.  If you are going to do that, Orlando wouldn't be getting at bats, which he clearly needs.  Send him down and let him take Sogard's at bats.  In a strange twist, this is almost a demotion for Sogard.  It basically tells him his game isn't worth working on.

Arcia sent down to AAA today .   Sogard called up, Bandy designated for assignment and Brewers trade for Erik Kratz to Yankeez for either player to be named later or Cash

I don't have an issue playing Braun coming off the DL.  I do take issue with him sliding right back into the 3 hole.  There is a big enough sample size for this year to tell you he shouldn't be batting there.  I hate it that he seemingly bats there base don salary instead of production.
