Breakin' the rules, but Game 1's already in the books.

Brewers win, 6-1, as Jordan Lyles throws six innings of no-hit ball, and Eric Thames and Keston Hiura homer.

INF/OF Cory Spangenberg has been selected from Triple-A San Antonio. OF Ben Gamel optioned there. RHP Jhoulys Chacín designated for assignment.

The Brewers have DFAed Jhoulys Chacin which is kind of a surprising move.  He was really bad this year but it's still surprising.  That frees up a spot on the 40 man roster.  Cory Spangenberg finally gets the call to Milwaukee and Ben Gamel goes down to San Antonio.

WTH?
Something is going on.
Why did Gamel get sent down?

Not an all star, but solid defensively and got some clutch hits.

I don't get this 1???????
Is Spangenberg the 4th OF now?

Mr. RK

Edit: I completely forgot about Grisham.
I guess the like him.

I am still trying to figure this move out with all 3 players involved. 

1.  As was reported last weekend, Spangenberg was in Washington and ready to join the team and then they opted to add Aaron Wilkerson and sent Spangenberg back to San Antonio for a wasted trip.  What is hard to understand is that if they were going to make this move, they could have did it last weekend.  Why the wait??  

2.  I am not sure Ben Gamel deserved to be sent out.  This is a guy that has hit in clutch situations and been a solid 4th OF.  Yes he has lost at bats to Trent Grisham, but Spangenberg is also a lefty, does provide another option at SS, but didn't they bring Hernan Perez back to do that??  Perez hasn't hit once again, so he maybe should have been the guy moved on.  I know Gamel has an option left and the Brewers seem to value that more than nearly anything players offer them, but Gamel has produced enough to stay around in my eyes.  

3.  DFA of Chacin.  Chacin has been terrible all season long and would have been gone after the season anyway.  But, this was the guy that Stearns and CC entrusted to be our opening day starter this season despite a bad spring.  He was going to be the ace of the staff.  This move seems to indicate that he was not going to be ready to pitch for a while longer - maybe not even before the end of the season.  However, if he would be healthy and ready to pitch by mid September, because of the starting pitching issues and the expansion of the rosters, letting him go would seem to be a curious move.  He did have a solid year last year and was productive for it, but a failure this year.  So in the end, it was a semi-miss for this organization.  

Spangenberg deserved to be called up and produced all season long in San Antonio.  Watch for David Frietas and Tyler Austin to be brought up September 1.  Austin will require another 40 man roster move, but he has proven he can hit.

Brewers pitchers combine for a four-hit shutout and Grisham and Thames homered to pace the offense in a 4-0 victory over the D-Backs.

Is this Chase Anderson's first start this season in which he didn't allow any HR's ?

He's actually had quite a few. 15 HRs conceded in 21 starts.

I wonder if Chacin was told when he returns he will be in the BP and he didn't agree with that so they agreed to release him instead of fight about it.

Winning 2 of 3 is enough for now but they were pretty lifeless yesterday.

The rule is if you get within a few hours (2? 3? 4?) of 1st pitch and the thread hasn't been started, "honors" have been revoked and anyone can start it.  I had the last few series and just didn't want to start on again.
