Time to talk BREWERS!!!!
I have been on the Brian Dozier train for awhile, now reports coming out that talks with the Twins have intensified since losing out on Machado. Escobar could be another target, he can play short. Both starting and relief pitching is there to be had too.
The Brewers will be trading prospects for players here shortly, just a matter of how heavy they go. Pitchers with control like Syndergaard or deGrom are going to be way too costly IMO, but could happen. There are plenty of rental starters out there we might get cheap, or middle level guys.
If I had to guess we will add a starter, a reliever, and a bat. Likely a bat that plays middle infield. Dozier or Escobar top of my list.
I hope we keep our top prospects and go after affordable guys who could help us now.
No one to blame but himself, and he owned it, and apologized ... for me, that's the end of it, unfortunately, society has become that person that constantly brings up the past as part of any future disagreement... we all know how weak that position is, and how annoying
I think dude said it best...
I'll add my commentary on Hader.... He should fire his agent. Agents are there to work for their client's best interests. Agents are there to maximize the earning dollars for their clients. This agent failed to do his research on his client and therefore will keep him from earning the maximum that he can. This has hurt Hader right now and it will hurt him in the future. Social media posts from a 17 year old kid should be the first thing deleted when they become a professional. That was an error of judgement not just from Hader, but also from his agent.
Guessing his agent has time for his "big" clients, but those not working on free agent deals aren't getting the attention they should.
And...I do not condone the comments Hader made. I'm also not passing judgement. People, not just kids, say dumb things. Social media has made it ever so easy to see/read those dumb things. I believe the key for Hader is in his actions moving forward, not his words right now. And yes, Cain speaking up right away tells me that he's proven to not be that 17 year old kid anymore, but now he's under the microscope and needs to demonstrate real change.
