Wondering if moving Segura to 2nd-base & keeping Sardinas at shortstop wouldn't be the better move, defensively ...


I would agree but Sardinas' arm has looked weak.

If Paul Goldschmidt was playing somewhere besides Arizona, he wouldn't be nearly as underrated as he is. With that said, thank god he isn't on a team in the NL Central!!!

His contract is honestly ridiculous. Signed through 2018 with a 2019 team option, all at a crazy-low rate. Consider that, out of 21 first basemen signed for next year, he ranks 19th in cap hit amount. In 2017 he is 12th out of 13. That contract is highway robbery for the Diamondbacks.

Excited to see what Tyler Wagner can do today. Like the fact the Brewers are doing something different but wonder if this isn't rushing Wagner too soon. I saw him pitch a bunch in 2013 and he was good but he wasn't great like he made you say this guy is a definite major league pitcher. He did not rack up a lot of strike outs in Appleton and he only made 9 starts at Double AA. Hopefully it goes well today and he gets at start until Peralta comes back.

A lot of small market teams in baseball would be thrilled to have a player with a lot of talent who isn't greedy (nor the agent) to have a deal that doesn't take up a lot.

I saw the game but couldn't hear much of it. Why was Garza pitching from the stretch with no one on base yesterday?

It seemed to work for him.

Now that you mention it, I saw the same thing but didn't put 2 and 2 together. I am so used to seeing Garza
pitch with runners on base, I guess I subconsciously assumed guys were on base.
Long relief MAY be his spot because he simply hasn't shown he can be a decent starting pitcher over
the years he has played.
Garza does have some good 'stuff' but seems to be missing something between the ears and seems to
throw to dumb spots at dumb times.
I wish the Brewers would just CUT Broxton. The guys gives the team nothing and his spot could be used
to look at young guys. Brewers aren't going anywhere anyway. Look at guys at the AAA and even the AA level
for pitching. Might just find someone.

Yep, it is hard to comprehend. Garza has been a starting pitcher for nearly 9 full seasons now and Milwaukee
is his 5th team. He has a total of 78 wins over that time. Guy will be 32 this year too.
Apparently those other 4 teams didn't feel like the Milw. brass did.
$12.5 Million per year seems appropriate. About as much sense as trading for Broxton.
Of course I DO realize a team MUST pay it's 3rd or 4th starter this much - hahahahah[rotfl] [rotfl]
That was sarcasm in case you missed that too.
All the teams that go to the World Series have career underachievers like Garza AND overpay them to boot.

He was traded 3 times so yes, other teams felt good enough to want him on their roster.

Agree, and 3 teams also wanted to get rid of him. 4 if you add in that the Cubs didn't try to sign Garza.
Garza will now be almost untradeable with the ridiculous contract the Brewers gave him.
Right there with the horrendous contract they gave Suppan several years back.
Brewers would have been better off wasting this kind of money on Gallardo - at least he could hit.
NO other teams were going to sign Garza or Lohse for the kind of money the Brewers tossed at them.
