Not too many  of these guys are getting claimed.  For example Broxton and Wilkerson would not be claimed.

I agree. But for some reason they haven’t been. But even if a guy is claimed, so what? I don’t care if Castro is claimed, or Bleier, or Alberto or anybody. We have 27 wins. We got no jewels in this treasure box. Rickard always had his head in the game and almost never made bonehead mistakes. I’d rather have him than Smith or Broxton, but oh well. They chose to dump him.

I meant not being the worst team in baseball.  

I want them to be. I just hope for more competitive baseball like we saw the last 10 days. They can be competitive game to game and still lose a lot.

I agree that there are a few pitchers who might be called up. 

But if you get rid of Smith or Broxton, who takes their place? The position player cupboard is pretty bare.

Fine to try to trade Villar, but I doubt there's a deal there. If there is, it likely would be right at the deadline. 

Villar has no value. He was with the bad Astros, the bad Brewers and now the bad Os. Bad player for a bad team.

Pretty sure I remember some Rickard misadventures in the outfield.

There was a reason the Brewers traded him for a different second baseman.

Martin is the worst player on this team.

I think that goes to Smith Jr right now. There is literally nothing he excels at and several things he's horrible at. Martin, as a defensive replacement/pinch runner/backup player, is fine on this team anyway. So long as he's not starting on a regular basis, but at least he brings something to the table. I can't believe Smith is still getting in the lineup as much as he is at this point.

Why pitch him when literally everyone was rested?

Or does he mean he injured it during the game?

Hyde just said postgame he didn’t notice anything. They talked after 1st.

Lurch noise.

Bundy comes across as the kind of guy that would pitch with a gunshot wound.  

Said he felt it in Long Toss, then bullpen and game. Was asked if he thought about telling Hyde, said might of been a slight thought.

I ignored the internet, to (expectantly) watch a Friday night 11:30 replay for this??? Turned that f-er off by midnight!

Hopefully tomorrow will be a different story.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lose by only 6 runs... or better yet lose by only 3.

    • From MLBTR: The Brewers added three players to their 40-man roster yesterday in advance of the deadline for teams to set their rosters in advance of the Rule 5 Draft.  As you might expect, “these are not 100 percent easy, clear decisions to make on some players,” Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns told MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy and other reporters.  While Milwaukee has only 36 players on its 40-man, teams often leave spaces open for future additions or other roster maneuvering prior to December 12, when the Rule 5 Draft takes place.  This means that other teams could select some notable Brewers youngsters who weren’t protected, such as right-hander Zack Brown, currently ranked by MLB.com as the third-best prospect in Milwaukee’s farm system.  Brown was quickly ascending up the minor league ladder and was the Brewers’ minor league pitcher of the year in 2018, though his 2019 numbers (5.79 ERA over his first 116 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level) were a step backwards.  Stearns admitted that these struggles “certainly influenced our decision,” though “we still have high hopes for Zack Brown.”  If Brown is chosen, his new team would have to keep him on its Major League roster for the entire 2020 season to gain his permanent rights, or else the team would have to offer Brown back to Milwaukee.
    • Right, right, I’ve read so many threads I get the subject mixed up between them, I had forgotten what this particular post was about.  In response to your comment, it’s pretty obvious that Mike wants 1) Inexpensive warm bodies who can help us muddle through next year, and 2)  solid prospects with legitimate potential who can possibly help us in subsequent years. This guy seems like the latter. I also wonder if the draft is once more going to be pitching heavy in 2020. If so, that makes it a little bit more likely he’ll be wanting present value in a rule five pick, but we shall have to see.
    • Former Orioles right-hander Mike Wright has a deal to pitch next year in the Korean Baseball Organization. Wright, 29, posted a 9.45 ERA and 2.025 WHIP in 10 relief appearances with the Orioles and a 6.75 ERA and 1.813 WHIP in nine games with the Mariners, who acquired him in an April 24 trade and later outrighted him. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/11/os-progressing-toward-deal-with-anthony-sanders-as-first-base-coach.html

    • He is significantly more legit than Dan Clark. He can be brash but he puts in the work.  And also, he hates Dan Clark    
    • I don't think trying to copy Dan Clark counts.
