Wow, this brings the Brewers down a notch without an elite closer.August 1, 2022 at 1:29 pm #193337
They got the Padres closer in Taylor Rogers plus they still have Devin Williams in the bullpen, who is fairly elite himself.
Lamet has the potential to be a very good starter if healthy, plus the Brewers got two of the Padres top 10 prospects so not a bad trade for the Brewers really. They weren’t going to be able to afford Hader next year so they dealt him now since his value is higher now than it would be this next winter.August 1, 2022 at 1:57 pm #193339CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
We should be more concerned that the Padres for Hader than hapy the Brewers lost him. We may very well be fighting with the Pads for the last playoff spot.August 1, 2022 at 2:28 pm #193342
The Brewers did an exceptional job of maximizing the return for Josh Hader without meaningfully diminishing their chance to make the 2022 playoffs. Strong work by David Stearns and his staff.

There has to be more to Hader’s departure than meets the eye. Word has been swirling about here in America’s Dairyland that he was getting dealt by the deadline for the past month. Something tells me that San Diego just got royally fleeced.August 1, 2022 at 5:21 pm #193388
I like the trade for MIL before you factor in Lamet. If Lamet can be a SP3 or better for a season and-a-half, well, MIL has to pull that trigger.
That CF’r is a rabbit and the other prospect Fangraphs has as a “high probability SP4”.
It looks like a Rays trade, where they trade a season early, instead of late.August 2, 2022 at 4:15 pm #193660Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Rosenthal traded to Brewers. Trevor that is.

So the Brewers traded Hader for 2023 payroll reasons, he’s at 11mil this season. But they also DFA’d Cain and Lamet for 20mil this season. And after the Hader trade, they traded for Rosenthal and picked up the full 4.5mil tab on him, even tho he hasn’t seen mlb action this season.
Stearns is trying to pass this off as a roster crunch. No room for the guy you just traded for.

Rockies claim Lamet and the 1.6mil he’s owed to finish the season. This coming offseason the Rockies could tender his arb3 salary for 2023, or cut bait with a non-tendered decision.August 5, 2022 at 7:17 pm #194166
This game has sort of a 1950’s feel to it…..though I was not born yet in the 50’s.August 5, 2022 at 7:25 pm #194169
Carp a base hit to right to place Pinstripers on the corners with one out here in the 1st. Then Glayber Torres strikes out swinging. Donaldson doubles to deep right-center and it’s 1-0 Yanks…..Carp halted his progress at 3rd. Benintendi grounds out to 2nd to retire the side.August 5, 2022 at 7:29 pm #194170

Bottom of 1. Nestor Cortes on the hill for N. Y.
Carlson grounds out to Lemahieu who had Dylan played up the middle.
Edman pops out about 20 feet behind the 1st base bag in fair territory to Torres
Goldy grounds out to SS

Anyone know if this Yankee SS Kiner is related to Ralph in any fashion? Anyway, he beats out a slow grounder to SS for an infield single to start the Yankee 2nd. Trevino hits it a mile high out to the track in left where O’Neill hauled it in ……I would not have wanted to see Pez sizing up that moonshot out there. Hicks walks.
Shucks! Thanks J.J. Don’t know how that happened…… I’ll blame it on my crack production crew……who may have been smoking a bit of it. I’ll take this over to the real game threadAugust 5, 2022 at 7:43 pm #194175
Pugs, you are in the Brewers thread!
