Tangentially related Brewers news

You know, even that's a stretch.  However, there are two bits of MLB news that could affect how the 2010 Brewers shape up.  Besides, on a slow day like today, what more do you want?

Breaking out of San Francisco:

  • Item 1: Would-be free-agent Freddy Sanchez re-signs with the Giants (2 years/$12 million).  There are only a handful of productive second-basemen on the FA market, so it's a big deal when a 3-time all-star signs early.  Of the FA 2Bs left out there, none of them is appreciably better than the Brewers' Felipe Lopez, and all of them are older. Remember, the Brewers have yet to decide whether or not to offer arbitration to Lopez
  • The G-men also cut ties with 29-year-old lefthander Noah Lowry, who hasn't appeared in a game since 2007. You might recall that, according to his agent, Lowry's circulatory problem was misdiagnosed by the Giants as a forearm issue, "subjecting Lowry to an unnecessary arm operation and turning a potential short-term recovery into a lengthy medical ordeal."  Lowry has a career ERA of 4.03, and in his 5 years of service, only once had he had an ERA over 4.  If a team is interested in the likes of Mark Mulder, I imaging they'd be interested in Lowry as well.
