ARCHIVED AUDIO: Kyle's Thursday Appearance On The Home Stretch

A few hours before last night's game friend of the site Justin Hull of 95.3 FM/AM 1570 The Score in Appleton and I sat down to wrap up the Thursday edition of The Home Stretch with an hour of Brewer talk covering a variety of topics. Here are some of the things we discussed this week:

  • We opened the show by taking turns attempting to find positives in the Brewers' 1-5 road trip. (We found seven!)
  • Francisco Rodriguez and the possibility that his back-to-back solid outings are a sign that he's bouncing back and/or open the door for the Brewers to trade him in a waiver deal.
  • The closer situation for 2013 and the value of internal vs external options.
  • Assigning blame for the 2012 season.
  • Ron Roenicke, the things this season that are/are not his fault and a conversation about bunting.
  • The possibility that this team lacks in leadership with Prince Fielder gone, and whether or not it's fair to expect Ryan Braun to fill that role.

This week's show has been uploaded in two aptly-named parts: Part 1 and Part 2.

We've shifting the schedule a bit for my Home Stretch appearances going forward: Look for me to be there again sometime around Wednesday, August 29.
