Here in Wisconsin we go into every new season of Brewers baseball quietly hoping that the Brewers we know and love wont show up. Because the Brewers we know and love are, well, not great. This year it seems as though all those years of hopeing have finally paid off as the Brew Crew is primed to take the wild card. That is, if we can hold on for another month. Normally the brewers fall apart in September. Fingers and toes crossed. Even if we don't make it to the world series with hired gun Sabathia, things need to change in a big way.
First, Ben Sheets needs to go. After sheets gets his 10th or 11th win he slows down. The guy has never reached # 13. Anyone who makes as much money as sheets should give you 15 easily. Sheets looks as if he gives up at times, or phones it in.
Second, Gagne, Bush, and a few others need to go. We have no closer, we have middle relief that stalls out after 4 pitches, and we're blowing something in the way of 20 million on a pack of guys that couldn't out pitch a 6th grade gym class. Time to find some new guns.
Third, Make a run at C.C. Who knew that this would work out so good? Put we need to lock him up. With the money that will free up if we let sheets and gagne go the Brewers could lock up C.C. for another 3-4 years.
Fourth, Ricky Weeks, trade 'em. He's a great fielder but a terrible bat. There are guys out there who are good at both. Make a run for someone else to compliment Durnam.
Last, Get rid of Yost. He's inconsistant and just plain bad. So many times you'll hear Yooker say "not sure on this call by Yost" Bring in a Manager who isn't afraid to change it up. Try and pick up someone who hasn't worn a Brewers uni, huh?
Just my take on it. Give me your opinion.
