Are the Brewers giving us a hint in their off season plans with Aoki? Don't want to order 40,000 bobbleheads and then trade him. They did that with Jeffery Hammonds in the early 2000s, had a bobblehead day for him and released him before the giveaway.

They already picked up his option. And his bobblehead is strategically before the trade deadline.


My initial response was a weak attempt at humor. I do find it odd that a player they might like to trade this off season to clear a spot for Khris Davis would have a Bobblehead Day planned for him later in the year. Seems like there is a disconnect between the marketing people and baseball people. On a personal note, last year a day after his bobble day I was able to sell my three extra bobbles for $35 a piece to three buyers from Japan. With the bobble in Japanese again this year it will be a gold mine again.

The greatest aftermath stemming from the Brewers trading of Norichika Aoki to Kansas City for Will Smith wasn?t the effect it had on the starting rotation or the outfield depth, but rather Aoki lost his bobblehead day on June 29 to Scooter Gennett. They will probably face a left hander that day and Roenicke will start Weeks on Scooter's big day.
