Hamilton Could End Up A BREWER.

-David S.-

A rumor going around is that center fielder of the Rangers, Josh Hamilton may end up a Brewer once he reaches free agency.  The Brewers do have an incentive that might just work.

He will probably be looking for something over 5 years and over $100 million dollars.   Some teams may be hesitant to sign due to drug and alcohol abuse, resulting in a smaller deal than expected.  This could be a very interesting Free Agent.

The Brewers do need a strong left-handed hitter and a MVP type like Hamilton may be the guy.  The Brew Crew’s current center fielder isn’t anything great  in Carlos Gomez.  The main incentive for Josh to come would be Johnny Narron.  He is currently the hitting coach for the Brewers.  He was Josh’s mentor and personal hitting coach back in Texas.  They have known each other their whole lives, their relationship goes way back.  Johnny has helped Hamilton not only as a coach, but also as a person.  He has helped him stay out of drugs and trouble.  I know Josh would love to get reunited with Narron.  I see this being a pretty good incentive for him to come here to Milwaukee.  Don’t see why he wouldn’t want to come.  The Brewers look like they really could be a great team next year!!!

Could you imagine this line up:

1. Norichika Aoki

2.Rickie Weeks

3.Ryan Braun

4.Josh Hamilton

5. Aramis Ramirez

6.Corey Hart

7.Jonathan Lucroy

8.Jean Segura

9. Pitcher

WOW, POWER HOUSE.  Just think about  a Braun, Hamilton, Ramirez, Hart in a row.  This looks like one of the best lineups in baseball, could be unstoppable if they played like they did at the end of the year.  Weeks, Aoki, and Segura are also VERY good hitters.   The only weakness I could see is the pitcher, unless Yovani Gallardo is pitching.

I really don’t see why not we couldn’t see him in a Brewer uniform, unless he goes for some ludacris deal.

Brewing a Miracle !!!


Something strange is brewing in Milwaukee.  July through August the Milwaukee Brewers were going through some horrible troubles.  The bullpen stunk.  The starting pitcher would  pitch a strong game and as soon as the bullpen came in they would easily blow the game.  Our “go to guys”, John Axford and  K-Rod  couldn’t close a game.  The Ax-man had 8 blown saves and lost his job as closer for a while.    The Crew traded away Zack Greinke, a sign that we threw in the towel.  Everbody was saying it’s just one of those years, but now…………….

On August 6th they found themselves 13 games back of the second Wild Card spot.  Now today they are 2 1/2 games back and are on fire.  The Brew Crew are the hottest team in baseball and no one can stop them.  The bullpen is back and holding the lead, shutting down hitters.  John Axford has finally found his “game” with 33 saves and looks like his old self.  The starting pitching has been absolutely dominant.  Yovani Gallardo has won his last 8 decision and lowered his ERA a ton-maybe it’s the hair.  The rookie starters have been great including, Mike Fiers and Wily Peralta.  Ryan Braun is making serious contender for MVP and Aramis Ramirez is just unstoppable.  Newly aquired shortstop,  Jean Segura, has found his stroke at the plate, and Rickie Weeks is absolutely out of his slump.   THIS IS FOR REAL! – POST SEASON TICKETS WENT ON SALE TODAY!!!!

Wily Peralta Shines in First Start, Green Gets Called Up, Could This Be a Better Day?

Wily Peralta, Brewer’s top pitching prospect, joined the active roster for the annual September call-ups.  On Wednesday he got the chance for his first Major League start.  I have been looking forward to seeing him pitch all year.  He went out to try and impress the skipper, and that’s just what he did!  Wily pitched almost 7 innings with 3 runs.  There really should’ve only been 1 run because Kameron Loe put his pitches on a platter for the Marlins, and Loe almost blew the game.  Wily did end up with the win and in my opinion pitched a gem.  I hope to see him in the rotation next year.  GREAT JOB WILY!!!

During this game Aramis Ramirez exited the game with a back issue.  The good news is that my main hopeful,  Taylor Green, got called up.  If you know me I’m the BIGGEST TAYLOR GREEN FAN EVER!!!!!!!! Hopefully he can put up good numbers and earn a spot next year.

My Friend Kyle’s Time at Spring Training

Hi! It’s one of David’s co writers, Kyle.  I’m going to tell you the great time I had in spring training and the very special things I got to do!  First I am going to talk about just the atmosphere. ITS SO GREAT!  Walking around the ballpark (Maryvale) with all the facilities so open to public and to watch the fans who traveled from Milwaukee like me having a great time.  The players in spring training really make an effort to make this a fan oriented experience.  The players and coaches sign tons of autographs and do a lot of cool baseball drills that would make a little league coach starstruck!  THE GAMES.  The games at the park are great to watch your favorite players like Braun, Weeks, Morgan, and the youngsters who are trying so hard and are so hard on themselves because they want to make the team so badly.  They are a blast.  PREVIEW. Overall from what I saw the team looked great but have there spotty areas for sure. I was very impressed with weeks who hit very well and covered
more ground at second than I thought he could after his injury.  Matt Gamel looked great offensively but FAR from perfect defensively.  One problem I spotted was shortstop.  GONZO will be solid but the backup being Cesar Izturis looked bad with about 4 errors in 3 games I saw and went about 1-10 at the plate. YIKES. MY SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY!!!!!!!!  On thursday March 8th at 1:05 PM (ya I remember it that well).  I got the offer of a lifetime.  My bud Seth’s father was friends with Marcus Hannel, the bullpen catcher and he got me and Seth to be batboys for the team for the game against the reds.  We were so excited. THE DAY, THE DREAM!  The day started out with Seth and I getting suited up into uniform in the clubhouse! We then walked out of the tunnel the players do with our instructor, Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez. Then the game started and I was starstruck. Standing 2 feet away from the central of the sports world for a long time was awesome.  I knew I had a job to do now though, but a cool one, I got to set up the on deck circle and hold all the players bats.  I also learned the club is very close and loose and very funny.  One thing they did was talked spanish to Norichika Aoki but there all very nice to him and he seems to enjoy it. They also have some crazy nicknames. Another moment I loved was when an idiot Reds fan started to chant steroids, steroids while Braun was at bat, but then CRACK he responded to the junk with a towering bomb that would have hit the scoreboard at Miller.  I then grabbed his bat came back and slapped him five that was awesome. Overall this was an experience of a lifetime for me cause I love the game and appreciated this.  I LOVED IT.  I also learned a lot more about the team and the game.  IT WAS SO COOL.  Thanks for reading.  One more thing SHOUTOUT TO MARCUS HANNEL #55 YOUR AN AWESOME GUY, THANK YOU.
