    Well, he's not gonna be worse than Garza. I hope. It'd be tough.

    I am very, very glad to have Jean Segura back. Just love watching him play. And I will be very, very glad to have Lucroy back on Monday. We always heard Maldonado just needed to play more to get his hitting straightened out. But apparently being the starting catcher is a little too much "more".

    I have some big concerns about the fielding this season (well, the last few seasons... at least). Guys that are normally reliable are making terrible plays and it's hurt them numerous times.

    Khris Davis is having knee surgery Tuesday to repair the torn meniscus he suffered yesterday while striking out. The hits just keep on coming.

    But on the bright side, Tyler Wagner is starting today. Oh, wait...

    Welp, Tyler Wagner hasn't been terrible. But we're back to fielding miscues and defensive brain farts. After 1-1/2 innings, it's 4-0 D-Bags.


    I really hate to type this out, but I'm kinda ready for Attanasio to pull the trigger on imploding this team.

    I always say moral victories are for losers, but I think yesterday was a moral victory AND a real victory. Wagner pitched better than some of our veteran starters have. Martin Maldonado's slide into home was fantastic. Garza was good. Maybe they've discovered his secret. Start someone else, bring him in in the 2nd.

    Tyler Wagner sent down, Tyler Cravy called up from AAA. Smith's hearing is today.

    Happy Lucroy Day!

    Every single Opening Day starter has been injured at some point, although not all on the DL. Lind didn't start yesterday due to back problems (which was the injury I was MOST concerned about during spring).

    No news on Davis until they get in there and "clean it out" (that phrase gives me the willies, used in that context).

    Matchups for the, ugh, Cardinals series:

    Today: Fiers vs. Garcia
    Tue: TBA vs. Lynn
    Wed: Nelson vs. Lackey

    I wouldn't even know where to begin other than trading Gomez and hoping you fetch a big return. With Lucroy you probably wouldn't get enough to make it worthwhile, though with any of these guys the return probably wouldn't be as impressive as you'd think.

    And then Tyler Cravy holds the best team in baseball to one run in his major league debut, and the Brewers can't get one single effing run for him.

    Brewers claim Hernan Perez off waivers from Detroit and DFA Elian Herrera. I feel like they have a lot of infielders, but I keep forgetting they don't really have a regular second baseman.

    KD had his knee surgery and will miss 4-6 weeks. Counsell said Shane Peterson will probably be called up as the fourth outfielder.

    Hey, it's an offday! Feel free to go out and enjoy yourselves. Go fishing, take a walk, read a book, get your thumb re-frozen.. whatever.

    Matchups for the Twins series:

    Fri: Lohse vs. Kyle Gibson
    Sat: Garza vs TBA (I thought TBA pitched for the Brewers?)
    Sun: Fiers vs. Pelfrey

    The little blurb on Lohse says "The Brewers are puzzled about why Lohse has struggled so mightily this season".

    or fill in Garza. Peralta. Fiers. Nelson.

    2 out of 3 in Minnesota, and at least 2 out of 3 in Pittsburgh. Not bad at all.

    Who's going to be traded before the deadline? If they trade Segura, I will be very sad, although it seems like there are a lot of middle infielders. Think they can dump Braun's contract on anyone?

    Best starter this year? Whoever is making his major league debut.

    Re: 2017 Milwaukee Brewers, Back to Back Champions!

    Why trade Segura? He's on a dirty cheap contract for the next 3 seasons which is exactly the type of contract the Brewers need.

    Braun probably can't be traded with the injury issues and his past. Not impossible but it'd be a tough sell to any fanbase and his contract is just awful. We'd be rid of him after this year if not for the dumb extension.

    I'd look at trading Gomez. The team that gets him would get the rest of this year and 2016 so he'd bring more back than the average rental. Lucroy is basically in the same boat and has an option for 2017, might be worth considering as well. Those are the best trade chips they have though.

    Mets reportedly thinking about a trade for Aramis.

    Re: 2017 Milwaukee Brewers, Back to Back Champions!

    I mentioned Segura because there was a comment a few weeks ago tweeted by a media type from the Mets. I know it isn't likely or smart, but that doesn't mean it's not possible.

    Do the Mets really need Aramis Ramirez? He's nice and all, and Wright is out indefinitely, but.. that kind of seems like a dumb move. Can't they do any better?
