Time to talk BREWERS!!!!
anyone remember Rick Dempsey's rain delay antics might get a kick out of this, not nearly in the same class as Dempsey, but still fun

Suter leading the team in wins, that one snuck up on me. I thought it was Chacin. They should be tied, Chacin pitched an absolute gem last time out.
Really, I think we are fine with our pitching. Peralta has looked great, and has been lights out at AAA. I think he is ready for a full time slot. Burnes is also ready for a look a bit later, in the bullpen if nothing else and our bullpen has been stellar.
If we're going to trade big stuff I hope it's for a major bat. But I don't like rentals.
Cain gets on, Aggy brings him home. Nice recipe. Peralta pitched a nice game. Gotta give him another few starts to see what you got.
Someone earlier mentioned how crazy this pitching staff has been. Just to add to that, Suter is leading the team in wins.
Freddy Peralta was traded to the Crew for Adam Lind a few years back. Another trade that at the time was tough to swallow, but is now paying dividends.
How this rotation is as good as it is....just beyond comprehension. Nelson out. Davies and Anderson having the years they are having...how is this even happening? Just unbelievable.
And, I agree with an earlier post that without Cain and Yelich, I'm not sure where the club would be. And, of course Aguilar having a great year. By the way, remember Aguilar was claimed off WAIVERS from the Indians in 2017 January. Unreal! If Braun, Shaw, Thames, Arcia, Santana...even two of those guys start to hit like last year, then look out!
I think the Crew would be well served to trade a few prospects for a really good starter if that's an option. For all the prospects the Crew got in the last few years, not really a lot of solid hitters have come out of the bunch. So, even though it's hard to see guys leave that are hitting well in AA, and AAA, sometimes those guys never really turn into great MLB hitters. The Crew has stocked up over the years, time to let a few go if the right opportunity presents itself.
Great win tonight! Loved that 9th inning! Great to see Kneable get the Save.
what a tough, tough job by Knebel, big tme save
excellent start for young Peralta !! he looked a little gassed in the 4th, but got out of that and seemed energized by that ....
Aggy with another awesome day with the bat, guy's been golden
Cain's runs scored due to running hard on infield hits, hard to deny what he brings to the team is special
Dodged a bullet on the Thames dropped ball ... and thumbs up for Peralta not losing focus, and getting the next out
I think I saw Subero introduce himself to Sogard at 1st base .... ( that was for you dude, heh )
