    Last week’s rumors that the Brewers were talking with Kimbrel seem to have died off. Then again, if Knebel needs TJS and is out for the year, it could change matters.

    Milwaukee’s team ERA of 5.07 is last in the NL. Their rotation is in transition. Fans are concerned in four major areas.

    The Brewers front office/ownership went cheap on the starting pitching and they are now paying the price. Last year they could expect to get 4 or 5 lockdown innings out of their bullpen each night to bail out their starters. Not this year.

    Yes. That article pointed out how they let both veteran starters – Miley and Gio – leave and tried to replace them with prospects. Especially interesting to me because of the recent discussion here in which the Brewers were praised for being patient in the free agent market.

    They lucked out and got Gio back, who has been good in two starts since returning. That may not be enough, though.

    Things will get interesting after the draft. Keuchel and Kimbrel won’t have draft pick compensation attached to them after that plus Madbum and the Toronto pitchers may be available. The Brewers may be waiting to pounce.

    So will may other teams, I predict. The Brewers hold no particular advantage.

    Amy was jumping up and down last night after the Brewers won in 18 innings with two runs in the last of the 18th. That was a sight to behold.

    I’m not for sure, but that might have been Pugs right along side of her…..
