Thursday's Frosty Mug

Some things to read while getting a few extra minutes.

I'm running behind this morning, as life got in the way a bit. So this morning's Mug is of the quick variety:

Other notes from the field:

And in other stuff:

On the trade front:

In the minors:

  • The affiliates went 3-2 yesterday, with Brevard County starter Dan Merklinger having the best day: He struck out 13 while pitching six shutout innings in the Manatees' 5-1 win over St. Lucie. You can read about that and more in today's Minor League Notes.

On power rankings: USA Today has the Brewers holding steady at 22.

On the SBN Wisconsin Hall of Fame:

Around baseball:

Angels: Joel Pineiro is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a strained oblique.
Athletics: Ben Sheets has a torn flexor tendon in his elbow and is done for the year.
Dodgers: Acquired outfielder Scott Podsednik from the Royals for two minor leaguers.
Mariners: Placed pitcher Ryan Rowland-Smith on the DL with a lower back strain.
Nationals: Are expected to place Stephen Strasburg on the DL with shoulder inflammation.
Padres: Outfielder Kyle Blanks needs Tommy John surgery and will miss the rest of the season.
Phillies: Placed outfielder Shane Victorino on the DL with an abdominal strain.
Tigers: Acquired shortstop Jhonny Peralta from the Indians for a minor leaguer.

And in non-Brewer notes:

I'm betting a team that "has to be overwhelmed" and a team that is "likely to stand pat" end up making a deal before Saturday.

On this day in 1975, Don Money and Darrell Porter led off the game with back-to-back home runs as the Brewers beat the Red Sox 4-0.

Happy birthday today to:

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to my morning routine.

Drink up.
