Brewers Pitching Situation Improves Once More

You know the drill. If your bullpen can hold a lead, or limit the bleeding in close games, you should improve your chances of making the playoffs. Statistics have proven this to be the case. Once the Brewers' managers and staff come back to Milwaukee after this holiday break, they should be signing Takashi Saito. Saito is ready to agree to a one year deal.

Of the nine pitchers all looking to fill one more spot on the roster, there is only one lefty, Mitch Stetter. Sean Green has a contract working in his favor. The battle for a spot in the Milwaukee Brewers' bullpen will commence in spring.

Zack Greinke Comes to Milwaukee

I play for Milwaukee
I like the trade deal for Zack Greinke. Most Milwaukee fans do too. Milwaukee Brewers ticket sales spiked as soon as the deal was done. That's got to mean something. The same thing happened after they went to the playoffs in 2009.

Not to pass up on the revenue, the Brewers have added a Greinke bobble head to this upcoming season. Set all that stuff aside. Greinke has to produce. The Brewers gave up Lorenzo Cain, Escobar, and two prospects. Greinke stays out of the white hot New York Yankees spotlight for another year.
