    Not a major surprise to see him headed to Triple-A. He had a 10.70 ERA and 2.15 WHIP. Gave up a "reverse Yeli like" 11 home runs in his four starts (17.2 innings). He did record 24 strikeouts, but that was mitigated somewhat by eight walks.

    He is only 24 year old and I think he has a lot of good baseball ahead of him. Just needs time to work on his mechanics and get his head straight.

    Gotta love the minor leagues. Really something I wish the NFL could figure out. Instead of having to carry/play a guy who needs some work, NFL teams are faced with either cutting him, trying to sneak him over to the practice squad (if eligible) or hoping he improves while on the roster.

    Heard an interesting stat this morning. If you factor out Davies' ERA, Brewer starters have a combined 6.8???? Wow...it's early but still the same old same old.

    Been a really odd and disappointing couple of weeks for the Brewers. The Pitchers are serving up the long ball, including Hader. When the pitching is decent, the bats are silent. When the bats are connecting, the pitching is at its worst and the offense can't keep up with what the other team is scoring.

    Gettting swept by the cards is roughly the same as losing ANYTIME to the Bears.
