the Brewers crack me up. Axford has an ERA north of 9 and is averaging two base runners an inning, and yet they still keep trotting him out there in high leverage situations.

Seriously? They are 6th in MLB in runs scored. :-?


They've had some big games. They're pretty good, but we'll see if they are even top 10 over the long haul. He's been leading off or hitting second while Bourn has been out and has been raking. Bourn comes back and he hits 8th on occasion with Kipnis/Asdrubal hitting at the top of the lineup. It seems to me that Brantley is ideally suited for the 2 hole. I'm not as high on Kipnis/Asdrubal as most I guess.

Derek Holland may survive loading the bases with 0 out. C'mon, be the new Derek Holland.

Yeah I don't get it at this point, it has been 2 seasons now so they have to give up at some point. It is a bad bullpen all around though so it is going to find a way to lose them a lot of games.
