Counsell was saying earlier that he thought Pina could catch today. I wonder if his injury is more significant. Send him to the 10-day?

Why does it always feel like the Brewers are driving a bus with Square wheels? This team along with the Bucks makes me want to pull my hair out!!

I'm curious to see him play. Chances are his stay is a short one and nothing he's done the last couple of years suggests he's ready for MLB pitching but man or man would it be nice if he somehow got hot and was good.

Josh Hader is becoming baseball's most valuable pitcher.

Hader has only one save to his name, and, like it or not, we still tend to give extra credit to closers. And since a lot of relievers have this nasty habit of being unpredictable, you might prefer to look to the long-standing track records. When you think of the most valuable relievers around, you might think of Chapman, or Kenley Jansen, or Andrew Miller. But not only has Hader been maybe the best per-inning pitcher in the game — he costs about the minimum, and he has six years of club control. Chapman’s expensive. Jansen’s expensive. Miller’s in his contract year. When you fold in the contract situation, too, alongside the performance, Hader could very well be the most valuable reliever. Green is right there. He has five remaining years of control, but that’s less important for pitchers than it is for position players. Pitchers should mostly be considered valuable in the short-term, and unknowable further out. So Hader’s service time matters, but he’s not exactly Ronald Acuna.

If Josh Hader isn’t baseball’s most valuable reliever, he’s close. He could get there soon, elbow willing. Plain and simple, he does everything right, going multiple innings at a time and pitching well independent of batter handedness. You could think of him as peak Dellin Betances, another non-closer who racked up strikeouts over 70 or 80 or 90 innings. Betances made four consecutive All-Star Games. Maybe his control is starting to go, but nothing is forever. Hader is that good, and he’s only improved since basically doubling the size of his repertoire.

Maybe Hader would be more valuable still as a starter. I honestly couldn’t tell you. Neither could the Brewers. Perhaps they haven’t closed the door on that possibility. But, what Josh Hader is today — he’s not a pitcher who needs to be changed. He gives the Brewers a massive advantage from exactly where he is.

He's out of the lineup again today along with Braun, Thames, and Pina.
Winning.

This is one of those games where you look at the lineup and see issues. Shaw, Cain, maybe Santana are the only guys I expect to do anything at all today against Castillo.

Our overall hitting with RISP has got to be near the bottom the MLB right now. Just out after out whenever someone gets on base.

I'm sure glad we keep finding ways to keep Drake on the roster. What a shame it would be to give up on a talent like him.

Just came to say God’s plan for Drake is to get DFA’d.

If this doesn't get Drake DFA'd, I don't think anything will.

Holy ****, I flipped over to the Sixers-Heat game when it was 3-0 at the end of the 5th, got a notification on my phone that the score was 9-0.

I thought to myself "bet you it was Drake who got murdered."

And yup.

Counsell's penchant for pulling his starters too quickly is burning us.
