OMG that Moose HR sounded satisfying. What a good decision it was to bring him back

Hell yeah. Great trade last year, helps them down the stretch and I highly doubt he takes the 1yr deal with them this year had he not been here last season.

Not that that package for Mous was full of blue chip talent, but Lopez is now trash and it doesn’t look like Maverick is gonna do anything.

The package for Yelich actually may turn out to be productive. I’ll still take Yelich.

Mous is a guy that was forced to bet on himself maybe making a somewhat stupid decision to turn down various offers but it looks like he’s gonna end up making most of it back. Someone will pay him somewhat nicely after this year, you’d think.

Nice to still be holding on to 1st. Cubs play @LAD x4. Let’s put a bit of separation in this weekend.

I know it's the 1B thing that's driving everyone crazy right now but Lorenzo has been borderline putrid and absolutely must get it together for us to have a chance to make another run. He's flirting with the worst numbers of his career and at age 33 that is very concerning.

Arcia 'is' slightly less terrible? If he bats .250 his entire career that is a win with how good his defense is.

Anytime you strike out 24 times and win, I would say that is a feat. In a season of strange twists etc Houser finding his mlb footing is f’ng sweet.

Also, I am starting a new comic titled ‘The Misadventures of Aggy and Shaw’.

If you've been watching the Brewers the last 20 years you should know these major slumps by players are a normal occurrence.
Hiura will be back. And if Ags is still not hitting he might be the one to go.
The pitching staff needs time to settle in and get healthy.

No need to complain and panic. Just sit back and watch. We have good people in place to make the right calls.

I wish they sold somewhat high on aguillar and/or shaw last off season. Thames has been better than expected and they could have platooned him this year and at least got some value in a trade for aguillar or shaw. I'd take anything right now for those guys. Hopefully they can bounce back, but im not optimistic. they both look lost.

Stayed up well past my bedtime to watch this one.

Moooooooose!!!

That Thames HR to tie the game was incredible. Pitch well off the outside corner, basically a flick of the wrist, and barreled up to the short porch in left.

What a win.

I’ve been watching these Brewers since 1982. I admire your patient approach. I can’t just purge my traumatized Favre 6-pick, Packers choke job, Giannis 47.7% ECF FTs, Jeffress playoff collapse sporting experience. I am damaged goods!

The good thing is he's playing elite CF.
