    I guess we will only be 6 GB with a win and a Cubs loss....

    5 hits an 1+ innings and yet no runs to this point ... so much for small ball

    CE...Hamilton HAS to be allowed to work on it against lefties. He simply does. It is ridiculous to hinder that part of his development to get at-bats for Ellison. It just is. And I will take my chances on Hamilton's prodigious talent over what Ellison brings any day of the week.

    Ellison getting at bats over anyone is inexcusable.

    I feel odd rooting for the Brewers and Cubs back and forth like this....

    I completely agree.

    He's simply too talented to not eventually be a ~.750 OPS player against lefties.

    And, for that matter, his lefty OPS as it stands isn't much worse than anything else they're trotting out.

    Marty asking Hal about his "pick up Dunn's option" poll...

    Hal says they will. Castellini likes him and his offensive numbers would be hard to replace on the free agent market.

    Hal says they may try and trade him next year, depending on their standing.

    Makes complete sense...you have to wonder the motives of this regime sometimes.

    And I think that a lot of this has to come from above. There's no way that Pete and Jerry are this similar. Unless Pete is intentionally mimicing Narron in order to get fired asap.
