Per MLB Radio, Joakim Soria to the Brewers.
I donít know what your injury situation looks like over there, but youíre only 2.5 behind the Cubs, and the #1 spot in the NL is right there for the taking this year. Itís not like last year, where the Dodgers had the whole thing on ice by Memorial Day.
I just hope that this rough month is the only rough month of the season.
Per ESPN, Moustakas to the Brewers for OF Brett Phillips and RHP Jorge Lopez.
I like the Moustakas deal, but it will be interesting to see how they get him into the lineup. Can he play anywhere other than third?
edit: just saw McCalvy say Shaw will start at second today, and Moustakas will be in the lineup. So there you go.

I AM GETTING A LITTLE NERVOUS ABOUT THE LACK OF STARTING PITCHING, MR. STEARNS.
Why have they not gotten Chris Archer yet?
It depends what it costs to get him. Honestly this team while doing great so far is vastly exceeding their preseason expectations and they've done that at least 2 times in recent memory and missed the playoffs both times. If they can get him without changing their long term outlook and giving away key prospects for the future then sure do it.
Right but that doesn't mean you should trade good ones for rentals either.
I know Chris Archer gets thrown around a lot but he's kinda bad this year...
Jonathan Schoop to the Brewers.

Brewers: All the infielders!
Man, I love Lorenzo Cain. Love love love. LOVE.
Yesterday Topp said this:
I think he's spot on that Stearns has done everything he can to create flexibility for Counsel to do what he thinks will work best that day.The 2nd largest failure of the Melvin era (behind not acquiring and developing controllable pitching) was handing managers inflexible rosters. They often had stud hitters, but most were RH power w/ inferior backups. They were always bottom of the league in platoon advantage.
Stearns has gone the complete opposite way. Beyond building the pitching staff around controllable depth, heís constructed a roster built to mix and match based on the opposing pitcher and game situation. And put in place a management structure to make it work.
Welp, the sweep of the Dodgers isn't possible after last night's extra inning affair, let's see if they got the series win...

Err... on the bright side, Kratz lowered his ERA? Į\_(ツ)_/Į
