I suppose at the very least, Parra's start gets pushed back to Wednesday in that case. I'm reading that CC is likely to make his debut on Tuesday night, when Parra is slated.


For Parra owners (including myself)...Parra's pitching at least the 8th inning tonight. Lucky, the Brewers have got their rally caps on...he may get the win! ;-D

BUT...I have enough relief...I hope he still at least gets one start this week :-S

Looks like Parra is the one to be sent back to relief. :-t

No, he's scheduled to start Friday:

Jul 7 Tom Haudricourt, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Milwaukee Brewers SP Manny Parra is expected to start Friday, July 11.

He walked 5, and pitched only 6 innings and got a win.

In Cleveland, it would have been either a loss or a no decision.

I am going to enjoy the second half of the season :-)

Would Brewers fans rather have had the Sabathia deal, or this?

Ummm I think CC's deal trumps that offer. Hardy is a plus player at his position even though injuries have slowed him down. Burnett is inconsistent and injury prone and expensive.

I didn't say the CC deal wasn't better for their goals. I don't have a very high opinion of Burnett as a pitcher, in case you haven't noticed over these last few years. I just wanted to know what others thought. AJ is a rental player, just like CC, but comes with far more risk down the stretch.
