Winter Meetings Start Today; Crew Trying to Ink Riske

Melvin and Company are now in Nashville for MLB's annual winter meetings. What will happen a hop, skip and a jump from the Grand Ol' Opry? First on the Crew's to do list is finalize a deal with reliever David Riske. I'd be very surprised if the deal isn't done by mid-week. It looks to be a three year deal in the works and the Brewer "Brass" will make this deal happen. The Brew needs some middle relief help and Riske's durable arm would be a nice addition to the staff.

It's always fun to hear the rumors fly when the Winter Meetings are upon us. What do ya think about the Scott Rolen rumor? I've always liked Rolen, but he sure gets hurt an awful lot. The only way I can see him coming to the Crew is if the Cards picked up at least 1/3 of his contract. Also........Where would you put Braun? I'd like to see Ryan get another year of 3rd base under his belt.

This week will be interesting. Some team(s) always pay(s) too much. I don't see the Brew falling into that trap. Check out these sites for any Brewer moves: or
