As is typically the case, Justin Hull of 95.3 FM WSCO in Appleton and I spent an hour Friday afternoon talking all things Brewers and taking your calls, emails and tweets. If you missed it, the archived audio is available here.
Here's a quick look at the topics we discussed:
- Yovani Gallardo's recent arrest, Thursday outing, the concept of "atonement" and the MLB policies regarding handling athletes who drive drunk.
- Francisco Rodriguez's return to the Brewer organization, and the argument for and against it.
- Yuniesky Betancourt, his recent hot streak, a reported adjustment to his plate discipline and his value to this team.
- Khris Davis, his relative lack of use and the "25th man" role.
- The upcoming (now mostly passed) Cubs series and its importance to this team.
- The decision to replace Mike Fiers with Hiram Burgos, and what it will take for Fiers to rejoin the team.
- Ryan Braun's recent struggles and some of the possible reasons for them.
Again, the archived audio can be heard here. Justin and I talk Brewers nearly every Friday at 2, so make plans now to join us next week.
