Former Brewers Galore

+

oh my! This Indians article is about 3 11 former Brewers system players: Branyan, Brantley, and the LaPortas "Brantley, a prized acquisition in the 2008 CC Sabathia trade with the Brewers" - um....he wasn't the "prized" one...he was a PTBNL whereas LaPorta WAS the prize.

BCB Interview: RHP Donovan Hand

Donovan Hand was a 14th-round pick out of Jacksonville State last year, and he's been a very pleasant surprise, making it all the way to AA in just his first full season. He went on the DL with an...

Rotoworld's midseason Top 150 Prospects list

1

15. Mat Gamel "Gamel has the stick of a top-10 prospect, but with anything more than batting gloves on his hands, he scarcely resembles a major leaguer. Especially now that LaPorta is gone, the Brewers have good reason to try him in the outfield. While he's a fair enough athlete, there's simply no way he's making it at third base. Gamel's bat should be ready during the first half of next year, assuming that it isn't already. The left-handed hitter makes an awful lot of hard contact and could settle in as a 25-homer guy. He's hit .398 against lefties this year, so it doesn't appear that he'll need to be platooned. The Brewers probably won't be willing to move Corey Hart to center field to make room for him, but he could be the first player called on in the event of an injury next year." 26. Alcides Escobar 80. Angel Salome 102. Jeremy Jeffress 131. Taylor Green Jonathan Lucroy wouldn't have been out of place late on the list. Matt LaPorta was #5, Jake Arrieta #69, and Will Inman #70. UW-Stevens Point alumnus Jordan Zimmerman (Nats) was #64.

Trade Ripples Muddy Tortured Prospect Metaphor

When prospects get dealt for rentals, there's usually much hand-wringing about bare cupboards and broken dreams, but from what I'm seeing in the immediate wake of the Sabathia swap, the outcry...

We Got Sabathia

33

In a handful of threads on this site, just about every angle of the Sabathia deal has been picked apart.  But, since I am a Brewers blogger, it would seem weird if I let this pass without...

Sabathia a Brewer!

385

In return, the Brewers sent the Indians Matt LaPorta and, according to the Wisconsin State Journal (thanks Zeyes), Zach Jackson, Rob Bryson, and a player-to-be-named-later. [UPDATE]: Haudricourt confirms Jackson and Bryson and suggests that Taylor Green is the PTBNL. [UPDATE 2]: Green's agent suggets Green might not be the PTBNL (thanks jihad).

Latest Sabathia rumor

Apparently the offer stands at LaPorta, Green, and Cain (or a similar player--maybe Darren Ford?)
