Bucks with a busy day. Middleton and Lopez back, Brogdon traded for multiple picks, and Hill will be brought back later.
I think they still have a mid level exception for a free agent as well. That would be a nice way to pick up a veteran sharpshooter who is looking to win a title rather than cash in for the most money.

They want you to forget it's all made up outrage.
W was the worst until McCain, Romney, and Trump were even worser. Heck, when rumors were going around President Trump would not seek a 2nd term, we saw a flurry of "Pence would be more turrible I tell ya" pieces. You know...just to cover their bases.
The worst part is that he's had more success in 2 years than Barry had in 8. By far.

While taxiing at London 's Airport, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727.
An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"
Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour, and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"
"Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.
Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"
Heh. I'm sure someone was offended.
Enjoy your weekend my friends.

I know I've heard this somewhere before, and the person that said it is extraordinarily handsome and intelligent.
Instapundit echoed my thoughts...what a bunch of joyless cretins. No patriotism, no jokes, no pride in a booming economy. Complaining about trivial details they did nothing to fix in 8 years. Whining about people keeping more of what they earn. And damn it...we need to repeal this tax cut that is the cause. Walt Mondale is smiling...but those that work for a living are not.
I'm never been so thrilled I am not on their side. And they are not on mine.
The most obvious thing? They are miserable and won't be happy until we're all as miserable as they are. Their plan? Make it up as they go. No tax is too regressive. No child born alive is anything but a clump of cells, you stupid rube. And not only do we need it, it should be free. What is "it?" It will change daily, depending on polls, what region of the country they are in, and who is donating cash.

A couple more thoughts on Hernan Perez.
While one can argue his versatility made him well worth his $2.5M 2019 salary, he would probably not have been offered arby in the offseason, as the certain raise would have him vastly overpaid for a reserve.
Saladino has been very effective at AAA and deserves a chance. I would guess other teams have inquired on him with the intention of making him their SS or 2B, at least as a stopgap measure. Moose, Arcia, and Hiura will start 6 days a week when healthy. The impact of their backup is minimal. In case of injury, Shaw is probably back.
The AAA infield will now be Shaw, Dubon, and Spangenberg. Depth is strong in that area, to say the least. Perez is a solid defensive OF, but hits like a middle infielder. With Gamel as the 4th OF and Thames capable of playing the corner spots with Yelich moving to CF, an emergency OF is all that is needed, which Saladino provides.
Finally, a 40 man spot was opened. Given the likelihood of a trade or two being made, that would have to have been done anyway, as Saladino and Perez are similar cogs.

Brewers shuffle their infield, Hiura and Saladino promoted, Shaw down, Perez DFA'd.
The Hiura/Shaw swap makes sense and is not a surprise. I can't say I understand the Perez/Saladino switch, though it's not much of a difference.
Hernan is a lefty masher and can play 7 positions. He is overpaid, but I would think many teams would platoon him and use him as a utility guy. I would expect him to be claimed and a trade worked out, but I've been surprised before.

That said, writing an article scolding people for not tipping housekeeping because a relative worked in housekeeping will cause far more people to not tip than tip.

Polly Olsen is a young conservative from WI. She was told she could hand out valentines at her college. She was a guest of President Trump recently at the White House. She wrote this recap on Facebook recently.
So now that I've finally had a chance to breath from my whirlwind of a life changing trip. I have been able to think and reflect on my meeting with President Trump. We may not of spoken many words, but they say that words are about 10% of communication. So here is what his actions spoke to me. From before I even set foot on stage he was speaking. He selected my story of kindness to highlight why freedom of speech is so important to America. I was told that the nation needed to hear my story and that I was going to be invited to speak, with no restrictions as to what to say or how long to speak. This told me that, I was important and valued. That even one small voice can make a difference when given a platform to speak.
I wanted to hand him a valentine on stage, but the rules were that nothing was to be handed to him or even on stage with the president. He told his staff, Polly is allowed to bring her valentine on stage. I was also selected to receive the pen. Which was such a surprise, I'm just one of many students in that room to have faced discrimination, having their free speech shut down by campuses. I was honored.
Then came the meeting, from eye contact to hand shake. He said, I know what you have gone through. I have felt the pain of loss too. I'm here to support you in any way I can.
To have someone in that kind of power to take an intentional moment to act in such away, says volumes more then words.
Throughout his speech leading up to mine, he made it clear that he had the backs of ALL students and that he was not going to let big institutions step all over the little guy anymore!
Then came time for my speech, before I even got to the mic his actions spoke again as he adjusted the mic to my height. He, the President of the United states served each one of us in this way, humble enough to offer a hand to the less experienced.
Then I thanked him and stepped to the stage. God calmed my nervous and organized my thoughts, which had been racing through my head for the last week. I told my story and the story of Jesus' love for us ALL (John 3:16) that led him to the cross to provide a way for eternal freedom from the consequences of sin for those who believe in him and repent. (Romans10:9-10)
As I stepped away from the mic, our president thanked me for sharing and finished his speech.
When he finished signing the Executive order to protect freedom of speech on campuses, he turned to each one of us students and thanked us for our bravery and your stand for America's freedom.
As he left the room, the crowd closed in and it was over.
We have a kind, caring and compassionate president. Who has given up much for this country.
Pray for him and his family.

Rambling wife and son taking me out to eat for dinner (though most us uneducated rubes in flyover country call it supper...it's a credit to the coastal elites they allow us to bask in our own stupidity...many of us don't even think you should punish the successful by taking more of their money than those who sleep until noon! We just don't get it.) although I am sure I'll be called on to figure the tip.
It's like her kryptonite.
For those curious, I take 20 or 25% and then round up to the next dollar. Unless, of course, it's a really attractive gal or she calls me honey or cutie or handsome. Or brings me ranch or country gravy on the side because she knows full well I'm going to ask. In which case, it's more.
For example: Bill is $27.44.
20% is around $5.50. 25% is around $6.80. Tip is gonna be $6 or $7. Or, sometimes I make the total an even dollar amount like $35. I do this if I am paying in cash.
Which means I haven't done that since the day before the day I got married.
Since it has been a while since I mentioned it, keep in mind the Ramblings laws of tipping:
1. If you are not sure if you are supposed to tip...make sure you tip.
2. If you are not sure how much to tip, figure out what a really cheap person would tip. Then triple it.

I forget who it was, but I still laugh when I think about a tweet about last year's June draft. If memory serves:
The Brewers selected a lot of players that almost no one has ever heard of. And the ones who have are such losers you don't want to be one of them.
They are all very good players, but very few of them will ever make the major leagues. This will come as a great shock to the losers I mentioned above.
The funny thing is, this received many likes, but the comments were almost all "how dare ye?"

I'm afraid this will make everyone alcoholics.
You know, just like allowing liquor ads on TV did (they were never really banned, just a gentleman's agreement, but play along).
Nothing is stupider than legislating morality. If you have any doubt on this, look at the clowns who want to do it.

The Rambling son just informed me the sun sets 5 minutes later at the top of the world's tallest building in Dubai than on the 1st floor.
His knowledge overwhelms me.

It's rather obvious to me they are just misunderstood.
Criminals yes. But misunderstood.

Hiura goes down to make room for Shaw.
The Super 2 implications are far from meaningless, but giving up on Aguilar or Thames seems shortsighted to say the least. Keston needs to play every day as well, and not just part of the time.

McCain was an evil dottering old fool until he started voting against a more evil, dottering old fool. Then, he became a hero.

Something I learned while looking up something else?
Rococo means gaudy or loud.
I didn't even know it was a word, other than the name of a pizza place.

A realization hit me over the weekend. I saw a pickup truck, or a motorcycle, or a van, or a sedan, or maybe it was an RV...with an American flag attached to it. This used to be a rare sight. Now, I see a dozen a day. Two common denominators exist, one, the people driving the vehicles are patriots.
The other? Liberals hate every single one of them. The nerve of them being proud. They did not build this, said a confused fool. They are met with disdain, hatred, and called names. My God, they are so ignorant, they believe in the Constitution, a document well over 100 years old! They have the audacity of not wanting the 1st Amendment gone...after all, free speech could be hurtful, icky, or bothersome! Far better it be controlled by those who think every problem, real or fictional, can easily be solved by taking more money from the successful!
Or, in the case of Evers, raising the gas tax punishes the unsuccessful too, because those bastards have pretty been gotten away with paying squat, as they have the audacity to be lower to middle class. Evil SOB's.

I would have walked out before the meeting. Actually I did. I sat home and ate pie.*
The great thing about AOC is her complete lack of awareness of how much people hate her.
*Joking, of course, as I am not a veteran, because I am far too much of a scaredy cat.

Saw this yesterday, but did not post it, because I realize I am not exactly a news source.
Nelson returning is like adding an upper echelon SP if he's healthy and 100%.

Not going into detail here, because I keep my private life private, but I asked my buddy Trista a question recently about something, and admitted I had almost forgotten something I had told her would be taken care of. Her reply?
Nah. I wasn't worried. If you say it then it's always done.
The best compliments are not flowery and/or ornate. If you say it, do it. Otherwise, you're just part of the problem, and I do not have the patience to put up with your crap.

No draft pick compensation from now on this year.
Some seem to think there will be an immediate signing or two...if there was a handshake deal in place, I agree. If not, I don't see it.
I do not see either as anything more than a solid complimentary piece. Both will help any team, as they are all but certainly a step up over the worst SP or RP. Based on projected production, they might be worth a win over average, and considering average players have plenty of value, both will get paid. They have obviously overestimated their value, most likely in contract length.
One interesting note...the Brewers' relievers have thrown an astounding 20 more innings than any other NL team. They could use Kimbrel just for a fresh arm.
So could other teams though.

I find it shocking that a group that follows no traffic laws and has no safety stuff except a cheap plastic helmet would suffer death on a regular basis.

Nice to see Claudio and Burnes get through the 9th yesterday, as top options were unavailable. Bullpening is a small sample simply by mathematical rule...but success is always a good thing, whether by luck or skill.

Just when you think it was not possible to despise the military more than they already do, Pravda prints this.
I truly could not hate them more. A painful death of all their loved ones is too good for them.

Heh. If you ever notice, almost all the activity tracker people are built a lot like me...just like most of the diet pop drinkers.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't work out or you should drink carbonated sugar water. It just means fat people tend to do things that are far easier than changing the habits that made them fat.

They want to get rid of free speech while they add free stuff paid for the rest of us.
I'm so glad they're not on my side.
