Hope Castillo stays on the roll he's on and they take the first of these three huge games.

It would appear Galvis and Garcia are platooning now. Guessing Garcia didn't hit enough to be trusted in games with playoffs on the line.

Does it seem odd that the right handed Casali is starting over Barnhart, with a rh pitcher?

Castillo has been rolling with Casali lately, I think it's been the last 5 starts or so.

Edit: it's actually been the last 3 starts. But if you look at Castillo's game log, his worst 3 starts were ones that Tucker started. Could be randomness, but clearly it's something either Bell or Luis is seeing.

Castillo and Casali have been particularly in sync with each other. In five starts together, Castillo has a 1.32 ERA, compared to a 5.33 ERA when Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate for him.

.950 career against the Brew Crew.

Garcia brought an energy to this team that was palpable. His defense is light years better than Galvis. He has struggled at the plate but I would hardly call it like you have. But sure, have at it.

Yes, Freddy has had a nice couple of games at the plate. But he is still one of the worst hitters in the league this year and his defense no longer picks that up.

All I know is the dude went from “good/not great” to “best hitter on any team in baseball/MVP” in one season. Yes he did move from a pitchers park to a hitters park, but even then...

The best part was him tweeting at Darvish that “nobody needs help hitting against you” and yet Darvish is sporting a sub-2 ERA this year.

I love when people talk about hitting major league pitching like it's something that should be automatic in certain scenarios.

In a sport where the best hitters are successful 3 out of 10 times.

And guys like Luis Castillo and Mariano Rivera throw you the same thing 90% of the time and it doesn't matter.

Uh...chemically enhanced and got somebody who was just doing their job fired as part of his cheating cover-up.

Maybe my most hated in-division player, even over Molina and Rizzo.
Yea, he’s an all-time low of the low piece in my book.


If I was the person he got fired I would have sued him for every penny he has, especially after the Biogenesis scandal broke loose. Ryan Braun is a stain.

He did just throw seven straight balls and the strike was a nice fastball on the outside corner.

I always assume people in those situations get a very large, very secret "keep your mouth shut and take the firing" payment to not raise any trouble.

I like the alternate caps. Basically a slightly darker version of the classic Brewers road caps of the early 80's.

I understand launch angle, and this organization’s obsession with it, I really do. But doesn’t it seem like this club is consistently swinging underneath straight-as-an-arrow fastballs? It seems to me trying to optimize launch angles is gonna mean you strike out a ton, and I don’t know that it’s quite working for this team. I’d like to be swayed as an aspiring advanced baseball knower.
