Rob Neyer on the Brewers

A few questions from his chat earlier today relevant to the Brewers.  The last answer about JJ really stings:

Maurice, Chicago: The Cubs have the worst record in 1 run games in the
majors @ 2-9. Usually this means a poor bullpen and bad luck. And to
solve
the woes of the Cubs, they want to move Dempster to the rotation thus
weakening their bullpen. Perfect sense right? Well Perfect sense if
your a
Cubs fan.

I
understand your frustration, but you've got the order wrong: it's bad
luck,
and then poor bullpen. And there's a lot of space between those two.
The
Cubs have a better run differential than the Brewers, and I believe
that's
going to show up in the standings eventually. Whatever Dempster does.

Adam - Golden Valley Minnesota: Rob- Fact or Fiction...it is time to
bring
up Ryan Braun and get Counsell and Grafanino back on the bench.
(Answer-
Fact)

Ditto. I just blogged this very subject a few minutes ago. The Brewers
have
a chance to measurably improve their chances, right now. Let's see if
they
take it.

Shannon, MO: What's the deal with JJ Hardy? I know you mentioned in a
blog
awhile back about A-Rod that sometimes hot flashes like Hardy's can
just be
explained by great players being great, but did anyone ever really
think
that JJ Hardy was capable of what he's doing right now? Would a more
apt
comparison be '96 Brady Anderson? Also, do you think Hardy is capable
of
keeping something similar to what he's doing now (say .310/40/130) up
all
season?

Rob Neyer: (12:54 PM ET )
Brady Anderson? For me, the name that comes to mind is Brian Roberts.
Remember when he hit 10 homers in the first five weeks of the season,
and
only 8 the rest of the season?
