As a Cubs fan, I'm outraged that this man is not an All-Star

I wonder how often the pitcher leading the league in WAR has not been named to the All-Star roster? The Brewers have one representative and I can't imagine how awful it would be for a hitter to have to face Greinke if he was only pitching one inning. If this isn't retribution for the Brewers-Cardinals rivalry, I don't know what is.

Brewers Claim SS Hector Gomez Off of Waivers, DFA Brandon Kintzler

Gomez has been in the Rockies organization his whole career, where he had a .268/.306/.425 line in seven minor league seasons. He has never played at Triple-A and had a very brief major league call up last season. Gomez was Baseball-America's #95 prospect prior to 2008, but the 24-year-old has played in just three games this season. He has been optioned to Brevard County.

Marcum to be Out Longer

He is still sore, so I doubt he is going right back in at the end of his 15 days on the DL.

Hear Me Today On WSSP (Milwaukee)

I'll be on the pregame roundtable around 12:05 today with Chuck Freimund and Howie Magner of Milwaukee Magazine. Listen in live to see which of us makes a haiku first.

Lineups Posted for Game Two against ChiSox

I am wondering if our new saviors McClendon and Hernandez get some work in today.

Marcum on DL

There's the other shoe we've been waiting for since Livan signed. They're still insisting it's not a big deal. Hopefully they're right. I'd say "hopefully they're not lying", but I think the incentive to lie about the severity of the injury is out the window once he goes on the DL.

Edwin Maysonet & Juan Perez Designated for Assignment

Just seen Livan Hernandez n the airport in Chicago.He's on his way 2 Milwaukee 2 help their starting rotation.Talked briefly sounded excited

Bill Hall, via Twitter Tom Haudricourt has since confirmed the move, but says Hernandez will likely work out of the bullpen, not the rotation. h/t to @TheScottNorman for bringing the Hall tweet to my attention.

Brooks Conrad claimed off waivers by Rays, Mike McClendon recalled

McClendon has been a Brewer a few times. He has options left. See ya later Brooks. EDIT: I rewrote the title to make the transactions a little clearer. - KL
