I know it's kind of random, but here's my beef with the Marcum trade; When you find young pitchers and they become established as a 2-3 type in the rotation, you're never suppose to dispose of him for a hitter, and worse a unproven big league hitter.

Marcum, even though he lacks the big stuff, is a 2nd and even a underrated number 1 type pitcher in a rotation. How he was trade for just a single hitter, who may lack a position on our team, disappoints me. I'm pretty sure we could have gotten something more for him mid-season for teams making a push to the playoffs.

Its all about money. Marcum was coming back from Tommy John surgery and the Blue Jays didn't want to comit the years and money to lock him up. Instead they get a hitter who they can control for more years at a cheaper cost. They didn't want to risk Marcum having a setback so trading him before the season makes sense, selling high in a way.

I think Lawrie is going to be a good player. Not a stud hitter but a guy who can hit .260-270 with 15-20 HRs. He's either a 3rd baseman or corner OFer though.

Marcum was never a blow it past you type of guy and, like it has been reported in the past, tommy john surgery is overrated. Not only that, his commend and movement in his pitches are what makes him dominate. I could see him have a better season than Grenkie; he's an underrated guy because he played for the Jays

Again on that tommy john thing, Marcum is a hard working guy, let alone he saw it first hand in Roy and rubbed off to him.

I think you severely underrating Lawries hitting ability. He is much better than a .270 and 20 HR guy at best.

Yeah because he's been so productive at the minor league level lol. He's solid but overall he isn't anything more.

I'm just saying that maybe it scared the Jays away from wanting to keep him long term so they sold high when he was coming off a very good season - his 1st back from Tommy John.

he hasn't shown much since being drafted. I know he has a great swing but it hasn't translated into hitting the ball in the minors yet. Not the prospect people say he is. That said, his ceiling still could be better than .270, 20 HR; but not by that much, which if he can do that consistently, is a damn good ballplayer, especially if he can stay at 2B (which is doubtful since he is atrocious there). I think his ceiling is an average corner OF(which would be worth Marcum).

I mean the guy was drafted right out of high school. It is pretty unreasonable to expect much production from a guy right of HS. His production was pretty damn solid for a 20 year old.

Marcum does pitch pretty slow averaging 87.1 MPH on his fast ball for 4th slowest in the AL last year. It should work out fine though if we sandwich him between Grienke and Gallardo, who can both hit mid 90s. Unfortunately that means our rotation goes R R R L L handed assuming Narveson pitches 5th. I don't really see any way we don't have Grienke Gallardo Marcum as the 1-2-3 though.

This year we need LaTroy Hawkins and John Axford to step up big time. Axford I have confidence in but he was wild at times and being a second year player there is going to be more scouting reports on him. If he hits a sophomore slump it would spell disaster. Hawkins needs to pitch well and stay healthy because I don't see any other good setup man option. I have complete confidence that we are going to see starters pitching 7 innings more often than not this year. Innings 8 and 9 are the questionable and most important ones.

Projected bullpen:
Closer: John Axford
Set Up: LaTroy Hawkins
Lefty specialist: Zach Braddock
Long reliever: Manny Parra
Short reliever: Kameron Loe
1 or 2 guys we haven't seen much and will be the last option

There's just a lot of pressure on Loe, Axford, and Hawkins to keep this elite pitching staff hitting on all cylinders because I don't see anyone else we can hand the ball to and expect a shut out inning from. Thankfully it's 3 guys and they won't have to eat up a lot of innings but to me this part of the team is on the most shaky ground.

According to Japan's Nikkan Sports, the Brewers are nearing a one-year contract with right-hander Takashi Saito worth around $3 million.

We need a bullpen arm and I wouldn't have a problem with Saito, especially only a one-year deal.

I ask for a setup man and a day or 2 later we sign a setup man. I love this franchise over the past 5 years or so.

Takashi Saito signed to a 1 year deal of about $3.2M.

Do any of you guys think Capuano has anything left in his arm to be a decent SP still? We just signed him and I think it's a very good low risk solid reward move. I heard his stuff was just as good the 2nd half of last year as i ever was, is this true?

Capuano still has something to provide as a starter..I was hopeful that we would bring him back to compete with Narveson as our fifth starter but obviously that didn't happen

SP this year is a bit of a stretch if you ask me. Maybe after the All Star break but he's missed a ton of innings the past 2 years so to expect anything more than a reliver who's good for a spot start or two would asking alot IMO.

He had 106 IP last year combined between the majors and minors so I'm hoping he can slot in as our 5th. I'm not expecting any miracles but if his stuff is still there I'll be hopeful he can contribute.

The thing I'll always remember about Cappy is that whenever he tried to pick off a guy, our announcers would always go on and on for the rest of the inning about how his move to first base is the best in the history of baseball, every time!

Can we just give Podsednik a 1 year deal for like 3 mil and have him as our everyday CF?

I don't understand at all why there is no market for a guy who's hit above .290 with over 30 steals the last 2 years. Not great on defense, but cmon he is gonna be a bargain for someone.

buster olney said today it makes perfect sense for the Brewers to trade for Michael Young. I doubt we have the players left in the system to make that happen, but please Doug, pull another rabbit out of your hat and get us a SS that isnt Betancourt.

I don't think it would take much to get Michael Young given his ugly contract, and I feel the road block in getting a deal done for him would come financially, not compensation-wise

Last year Betancourt hit .260 with 16 HRs in the AL. I don't love the guy but how much hate can this guy possibly get before even entering spring training for this team? Can't have stars at every position. Between him and Counsell we'll get adequate production out of our short stop. We're not asking him to win games, just get on base once in awhile at the bottom of the order and don't screw up too many ground balls. I wouldn't give much consideration at all to a trade for a starting short stop until we get to June or so and the position is killing the team.
