Spring Training Is Here!

Well I finally get to break out my Ryan Braun jersey to wear to work tomorrow, tradition. The luxury of working in an office that has casual day every Friday.

Pitchers and Catchers are enroute to Maryvale Park in Phoenix Arizona to begin training and work-outs. The rest will trickle in next week. Exciting but uncertain times for the Brewers. There are a number of questions being asked back home in Wisconsin and through out Major League Baseball......Can Milwaukee return to the post season? Or was last year just a fluke?

Only time will tell. Until then, one can't help but smile knowing that spring is just around the corner.

* The Brewers are partnering with Amtrack this season to run a promo for a free train ride to Wrigley Field to watch the Cubs/Brewers (Sunday) September 17th.

*Melvin snatched up Nick Green (RHP) off waiver wires from the California Angels, who had to make room on their 40 man roster for Bobby Abreu.

*The Washington Nationals grossly overpaid Andrew Dunn, signing him to a 2 year/$20MM contract.

*Post-Trevor Time is putting San Diego in a crunch to locate a closer. Looks like Heath Bell is their man. He has two saves in 236 games.
