With Jimmy Nelson and Brent Suter needing to be added back on the 40 man roster, two players are going to have to be let go.  The first one is Jeremy Jeffress.  Jeffress hasn't been very good this year and if he isn't in the Brewers plans next year it makes sense.  However, it's also a really bad look for other players around the league.  The Brewers pitched him hard last year and when he had arm problems this year, he is thrown to the curb.   When people wonder why certain pitchers don't come to Milwaukee, it's cases like this that make them not come here.  The organization doesn't care about players, when you are no longer useful they get rid of you.


Not entirely true.
The Brewers are prone to keeping guys well past the usefulness!

I agree the Brewers pitching philosophy has to be questioned, but the trend they follow is certainly something that is growing.  I am not a fan of the 5 inning starts and only allowing starters to get through the order 2 times.  For me, when a guy develops 3 and 4 pitches, he is able to get hitters out 3 times in a game.  If he doesn't have those, then he is a reliever.  It should be that simple it would seem like.  You draft those guys and brings those pitchers into the organization and make that commitment.  This idea of an opener and 2 inning relievers will hopefully go by the wayside soon.  

I have no issues with any of the DFA's today.  None had a future in Milwaukee.  I like Tyler Austin and Freitas and would like to see those guys get some at bats and see if they can produce.  If they can, one of them could be in that 1B mix next season.  Austin would seem to be the logical choice as he has some experience already and his age.  I am kind of surprised Taylor Williams hung on and would think his roster spot is maybe the next to come up.  

Today is a must win game.  Gio is off to a good start and with the wind blowing in, 3 runs might be enough to win.  Leaving the bases loaded - again - will probably come back to haunt this team before the end of the day.  A lost chance for sure.  I would have pinch hit for Shaw in the 1st!!

Brewers with another shutout of the Cubs, 4-0.

Yelich with an insurance three-run bomb off Kimbrel in the ninth.

Cubs used eight pitchers to the Brewers seven.

How exciting, the Brewers shut out the Cubs 2 games in a row and lose a half game in the standings to the Cardinals.
