The ranting and raving of a Brewers fan and lunatic with a limited baseball knowledge:
Time to clean house. Get rid of Yost. Get rid of Sveum (Thank goodness that guy isn't a school crossing guard!). Take it on the chin and can Gagne. We lost Sheets' start, so now we've got four more games of starter pitcher lines of 5 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 109 pitches.
You all know baseball a lot better than I do. What could we get for Sheets realistically? Could we pull some top level pitching prospects so that next year's rotation isn't total crap in the 2-5 slots? Might a contender in need of a back-of-the-rotation starter take Suppan off our hands at the deadline?
If we could ditch these guys, couldn't we start '09 with Braun, Fielder, Hart, and Gallardo as the core along with some serious pocket change to go on a bender when free agency comes around?
Also, can we put Bill Hall down? I don't mean put him down as in insult him. Or put him down as in send him down to the minors. I mean put him to sleep. He makes me on a Friday afternoon with baseball on the radio look productive.
Lastly, F the cubs.
Rant over. I'm sorry for wasting your time and page space, but I feel better.
