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
5. Aramis Ramirez
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.
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, 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.
