Little news at Winter Meetings Not So Bad

The Milwaukee Brewers didn't make much front page news at the Winter Meetings; But that's just fine. The Crew finalized a three year deal with Riske and picked up a few guys in the Rule 5 draft.

I know that this doesn't seem too exciting or very sexy, but just because the Brew didn't make a big splash and make that proverbial "big deal" doesn't mean the Crew failed in Nashville or isn't setting something up in the not too distant future. A big part of going to the Winter Meetings is for the powers that be to "press some flesh" and bounce things off one another. Just because a deal with a particular player(s) didn't get done in Nashville, it doesn't mean that a deal(s) can't be done soon after the meetings break.

As Melvin said recently, the Crew doesn't have as many holes to fill as they used to. This is a good looking, young team that only needs a tweak here and there.

I'm feeling very good about this team and have a lot of confidence in Melvin and company.

Relax, people. There is still plenty of time for the Brew to make a move or two. And if they don't.............don't sweat it . It's all good!!

What Say You?
