It feels like it should be 15-0.

Definitely don't need to protect arms like that in rule 5. Marinez, Kirk, Goforth, and Scahill all way more important to the org.

Yeah, this is Stearns version of a Bucks move. Diaz was and is a no brainer protection - A poor value decision. His biggest hiccup to date on the personnel side. AND, hopefully he learns from it because he's accumulated quite a number of plus acquisitions.

Man has Sogard been fantastic since his call-up. I really look forward to a healthy Braun, Thames, and Shaw in the batting order.

I can't figure out how Goforth especially has managed so many lives with the Brewers for years now. He's not even a good AAAA type of pitcher.

I wouldnt mind having Sogard stick on the big club. With Perez's versatility and Thames ability to play the corners Franklin is the obvious DFA candidate.

I don't care at all if Franklin is let go, but watching Thames in the outfield so far, i'd only use him there on a very limited basis. He's a bad defensive outfielder and much better at first where he's at least tolerable.

Peralta officially moved to the pen.

The issue with that is it moves Aquilar who is raking to the bench. I personally dont think Thames is much worse than Braun in LF so its moot for me.

The next week is going to be telling. Obviously a long 3/4 of the season to go, but if we're going to accidentally hang around in the wild card chase, we'll know a lot better if we do well in this stretch.

100% lock: Nats
Team I'm very confident will get in: Dodgers
Team I am more confident than most is probably in: Rockies
____________________________________________________

After that, I think that the Cubs should get in, but I'm not 100% certain that their pitching won't keep imploding now that the defense is much worse behind them. I'll probably laugh at this when they're on a 100 win pace in July. I still think they're the 1st/2nd best team in the NL but I wouldn't be shocked to see them hang on the fringes.

The Cards also have a good shot and the final team is the D-Backs. Everyone else is garbage.

So that's 3-4 teams in or likely in and the Brewers are facing 2 teams that are on the fringe this week with the Cubs and D-Backs. I would say I want one more year of trading away the last of what we have of vets at the deadline, but I guess if we somehow got in, I'd just enjoy it similarly to how FTD was enjoyed (we thought we had a semi-bright future regardless after that season).

I'm excited and entertained by this team but I really don't want to get my hopes up. This pitching is not very good and the bats will cool off. I'm thinking they are due for a cold streak pretty soon. Bring them back to earth.

I agree, but the team is very similarly constructed to the D-Backs, so I'd say we're pretty even with them. Beyond that, there are only 5 other teams for 5 playoff spots. We may accidentally be in this thing. The extra WC spot definitely leaves the door open. TeamRankings gives us a 30% chance at the playoffs.

In a vacuum, I'd hope we sell whatever we have off one more time and tank one more time because this team is basically fighting for the #5 WC spot and probably isn't going to do much if they get it.

In reality, Mark will probably stand pat if we're "in it." I hope that we sell everything if we start to fade in the next month.

Theres a 162 games in a season. Theyve played 41 games. They are hot for sure but unless Espino and Guerra come up and save this rotation I dont see anything else happening. The pitching is not good right now and these bats are bound to cool a little. They are scrappy and never give up. A testament to how well Counsell has done with this team. In no way shape or form do I think this is a playoff team.
