    The Crew are undertaking a massive overhaul of their roster.

    The Grandal replacement.

    They really need pitching, but they have a history of waiting out the market.

    There were suspicions about the Brewers long before the Astros story broke. Ryan Braun, who has never been known to cheat, acknowledges that.

    Didn’t Braun deny PED use also?

    Hence the sarcasm. If I am the Brewers, I would select a more credible witness to deny cheating than Braun.

    (Footnote: Braun was suspended from July 22 through the end of the 2013 season for excessive testosterone. After lying about it for over a year, he finally admitted using cream and lozenges after famously ruining the career of a delivery man who had the misfortune of transporting his test samples.)

    Wasn’t that denial quite the show. It was almost 7 years ago and Braun is now looking for some cred as an older vet. IMO there’s always going to be that press conference in my mind when I think of Braun, a guy with a great career connected to that tarnished episode. The denial was worse than the offense.

    I think that MIL fans are more forgiving.

    No doubt Brian. Braun would be the LAST guy on that roster that should be chosen as the spokesperson for ethical behavior.

    Lol. Gotta give him credit…he denies with the best of them.

    So I guess we essentially have a Phelps for Jeffress trade between the Cubs and Brewers…

    Seems early for a guy without a lot on his resumé. I guess this is the new normal though…betting conservatively.

    Looks like the Brewers are close to an extension with Yelich. 7 years and $190M seems pretty low for an MVP candidate.

    The Brewers have been struggling. They don’t play the Cards until the final two weeks of the season, though…

    The Brewers dealt to the Phillies perhaps their best reliever not named Hader, David Phelps.

    Once we finish the Reds series this weekend, 50% of our remaining games will be vs the Brewers (10 of 20).

    We currently have a one game lead over the Brewers for second in the division, to qualify for the postseason. You can’t get a better scenario than head to head competition, for determining a possible postseason birth.

    And the other remaining games are 5 @ PIT and 3 @ KC. It appears that the 5 games @ MIL next week will depend on our starting pitching depth…. 4 of those 5 are 7 inning games. It would be great if Kim comes back strong. If so that would be a huge factor. The Brewers have never seen him pitch and that could be an advantage for the good guys.

    Game Score averages:
    Kim———–62
    Wainwright—-59
    Hudson——–56
    Flaherty——55
    Ponce———44

    I’ve lost even more faith in Martinez…. I hope he can change that.

    jj, I agree. May the best team win. (One can also hope that Mr. Yelich’s subpar season continues, but the Cardinals seem to bring out the best in him.)

    Ny, certainly the results weren’t great in his first start back, but let’s see if CMart shows improvement this time. Remember the man had to go to the hospital multiple times due to COVID.
