Tuesday's Frosty Mug

Some things to read while taking a break from Arkanoid.

It's a short mug this morning, but if you finish before 10 you can watch Game 7 of the 1982 World Series on MLB.TV.

There isn't so much as a new Brewer hot stove rumor to discuss today, but that's not for lack of money: 2009 ticket sales are up and the club is touting their economic security.

If the Brewers are looking for an upgrade at third base, the market has likely passed them by...Beyond the Box Score takes a look at the second and third basemen still available...and rates Craig Counsell as the best option.

Bill Chuck of Baseball Digest Daily has a list of games to remember in 2008, but they're not the ones you'd expect. His favorite Brewer memories: September 19, when the Brewers gave up seven home runs to the Reds, and September 24, when the Brewers beat the Pirates 4-2 on two singles and nine walks.

Could you, if asked, name the Brewer with stolen bases in the most consecutive games? Recondite Baseball has the answer: Pat Listach stole a base in 7 straight games in 1992. Tommy Harper also did it for the 1969 Pilots.

As of this writing, Angel Salome leads Brett Lawrie by 24 votes and Jonathan Lucroy by 63 votes in the voting for Brewer prospect #4. Go cast your vote if you haven't, and the voting for #5 will be posted at noon today.

Among the former Brewers on the hot stove: Elsewhere on the hot stove:

Blue Jays: Signed Michael Barrett to a minor league deal.
Dodgers: Reportedly were (but now are not) talking to the Mets about trading Andruw Jones, have been in contact with Adam Dunn and are also interested in Bobby Abreu.
Rockies: Are still interested in Tim Redding, but may also be looking to acquire Jason Marquis.

Need a charcoal fix? Big League Stew's video of tailgating at Miller Park made honorable mention in their best of 2008.

Oh, and don't walk barefoot in the sand at Petco Park.

Drink up.
