Al's Ramblings



Wednesday, July 31, 2019

(7/31/2019 07:17:00 PM) - Al

Breakout prospect Trent Grisham is expected to join the Milwaukee Brewers soon, sources tell ESPN. Grisham, a former first-round pick, played his way onto the Brewers with a standout season at Double-A and Triple-A. A big outfield bat, he is arguably the Brewers’ top prospect.--Jeff Passan

He is an OF. The Brewers have 4 solid OF's. This seems strange. I can see Braun playing some 1B versus LHP, but Grisham is a LH hitter too. 

Counsell confirms Grisham will be up and in the starting lineup tomorrow in OAK.

(7/31/2019 07:09:00 PM) - Al

Brewers DFA Donnie Hart to make room for Black and Pomeranz on the 40 man, as only Dubon was removed.

Also, Diplan was claimed by at least 2 teams, as the Twins acquired him for cash.


7/31/2019 07:09:00 PM



(7/31/2019 02:06:00 PM) - Al

Adam points out what I was thinking...the Crew picked up 2 young and cheap players in addition to 2 rentals. They did not go all in on this year, which makes sense given their record and playoff chances,


7/31/2019 02:06:00 PM



(7/31/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

Just coincidence. Unexpectedly. Nothing to see here.


7/31/2019 01:30:00 PM



(7/31/2019 01:18:00 PM) - Al

Brewers have made a trade with SF per the Athletic.

Dubon going to the Giants. More to follow.

EDIT: Almost certainly involves Bumgarner or Smith.

EDIT 2: Bumgarner not headed to MIL per SF SABR member.

EDIT 3: Fox reporting no Wil Smith in the deal either.

EDIT 4: Drew Pomeranz and Ray Black for Dubon per Rosenthal.

More to follow.

The Brewers have been linked to Black and Faria before. The analytics department must like them.

EDIT 5: Black throws incredibly hard. 98-99 mph fastball. He has a 5 ERA in AAA...but Sacramento is a very offensive environment, as is the PCL West. He also has 14 K's per 9 IP...we all know Stearns loves K/9.


7/31/2019 01:18:00 PM



(7/31/2019 12:51:00 PM) - Al

Jesus to the Rays for a solid RHP, and far younger than Aguilar.




7/31/2019 12:51:00 PM



(7/31/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

Well if you word it like that, no Dem will ever support it.


7/31/2019 12:00:00 PM



(7/31/2019 10:47:00 AM) - Al

Brewers among teams talking to Mariners about Mike Leake.

Leake has little value at what he is owed, but SEA may well agree to pay part of his salary to rid themselves of him...in essence, buy a prospect and free up the remainder of his payroll.

I thought to nyself this morning Leake and Kela were two reasonable targets that would not break the bank in prospects or payroll. We'll see if either ends up in MIL.



7/31/2019 10:47:00 AM



(7/31/2019 10:00:00 AM) - Al

Heh.

They love proving how bad they are at their jobs.


7/31/2019 10:00:00 AM



(7/31/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

They fall for this every single time.


7/31/2019 08:00:00 AM



(7/31/2019 07:17:00 AM) - Al

Brewers still being mentioned as active on Kela, Robbie Ray, and Zack Wheeler.

There may well be a 2nd tier of pitchers dealt after the top tier above, as there are far more buyers than sellers. The Tigers would seem to have several cards but little talk about them.

I'm working a half day today. Back to discuss about noon.

(7/30/2019 08:00:00 PM) - Al

I don't mind the throwing the ball over the fence stuff at all. Not the best poker face, but giving a damn is not a bad thing.


7/30/2019 08:00:00 PM



(7/30/2019 05:18:00 PM) - Al

Big fan of Kela.


7/30/2019 05:18:00 PM



(7/30/2019 04:28:00 PM) - Al

Nothing hurts the left more than their own words.


7/30/2019 04:28:00 PM



(7/30/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

You know, if Trump loses, he'll contest the results...because he's so stupid and evil.

This is a classic piece and shows you exactly what hypocrites they are. It is hilarious in its utter cluelessness. I kept waiting for the "that's different because shut up" line.

I'm so glad they're not on my side.


7/30/2019 12:00:00 PM



(7/30/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

They're defending rats you know.

I'm not saying Dem run cities are disasters. They do not need my help.


7/30/2019 10:30:00 AM



(7/30/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

The hell you say.


7/30/2019 09:00:00 AM



(7/30/2019 07:00:00 AM) - Al

They hate everything that works.


7/30/2019 07:00:00 AM



(7/30/2019 04:30:00 AM) - Al

A timeline of the Diemel brothers disappearance and updated story.

Years ago, when I helped on the Rambling brother's farm, on occasion I would be in remote areas of pasture/forest, perhaps looking for young stock or traveling from one area to another. Sometimes, I got the feeling no human had been in that spot for ages. It would be easy to hide a body in such an area and it would be very difficult to find.

Or even two.


7/30/2019 04:30:00 AM

(7/29/2019 04:25:00 PM) - Al

Brewers acquire Lyles...again.

We'll see if Liriano is soon to join him.:)


7/29/2019 04:25:00 PM



(7/29/2019 02:03:00 PM) - Al

Blake Parker elects free agency after being DFA'd by Twins. He is probably as good as 90 % of the relievers on the trade market and will cost nothing. He had an ERA of 3ish before a bad outing a week or so ago.



7/29/2019 02:03:00 PM



(7/29/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

Friend of Ramblings Ed sends along this link.

By the way, this has never happened. Ever. In history.


7/29/2019 12:30:00 PM



(7/29/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

Coincidence.

Unexpectedly.




7/29/2019 10:30:00 AM



(7/29/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

He is so good at this. And the left steps in the trap every single time


7/29/2019 09:00:00 AM



(7/29/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

I seem to recall a wise man saying this recently.

Ramblings sets the trends...of course...that offends many.


7/29/2019 08:00:00 AM



(7/29/2019 03:30:00 AM) - Al

Well, to be fair, he can maneuver up and down stairs without Secret Service assistance.


7/29/2019 03:30:00 AM


Sunday, July 28, 2019

(7/28/2019 10:35:00 PM) - Al

Ivan Nova, Mike Leake, Dylan Bundy, Mike Minor.

Those 4 names are probably the most likely SP's to be added by the Crew before the deadline. All eat innings, all available, all affordable prospect wise.

Given the price of relief pitching thus far, I continue to think Stearns will add to the bullpen as well. As one would expect, the price of 20-25 average or above average innings is low.



7/28/2019 10:35:00 PM



(7/28/2019 08:18:00 PM) - Al

Lyles and Liriano would both be cheap and a slight upgrade to the Crew's staff.


7/28/2019 08:18:00 PM



(7/28/2019 04:30:00 PM) - Al

Just coincidence. Nothing to see here.

USAT should be ashamed! Heh. It's amazing how they can't manage to keep their story straight. That's what happens when you lie.


7/28/2019 04:30:00 PM



(7/28/2019 02:30:00 PM) - Al

Scott Adams is right.

When you argue that a dump is not a dump, everyone that knows it's a dump realizes you're lying liars.

As Adams points outs, in the past month, the left has loudly argued FOR rats and AGAINST the 4th of July.

I hope they never stop talking.


7/28/2019 02:30:00 PM



(7/28/2019 12:27:00 PM) - Al

As pointed out in the piece, this does not make a lot of sense. Is there a team with a need for a rental at 2B or 3B or C that has a plethora of pitching?

Is there a team with a plethora of pitching?

I assume Stearns would trade any player on the team if it improved the club. But this seems like it is unlikely anymore than a passing thought.


7/28/2019 12:27:00 PM



(7/28/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

They just make stuff up. And, they're not very good at it.


7/28/2019 12:00:00 PM



(7/28/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

Nope. Not tired of it yet.


7/28/2019 10:30:00 AM



(7/28/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

Unexpectedly.

You can hear the liberals curse because their fellow Americans are not suffering.


7/28/2019 09:00:00 AM



(7/28/2019 02:30:00 AM) - Al

Notice how quickly the left turns on their own when they dare to tell the truth.


7/28/2019 02:30:00 AM

This Keston Hiura kid might be a keeper.


7/27/2019 09:46:00 PM



(7/27/2019 04:00:00 PM) - Al

Remember when the right was all old and unable to laugh?

Not anymore.


7/27/2019 04:00:00 PM



(7/27/2019 03:00:00 PM) - Al

I've pointed this out for over a decade.

Union wages are tied to the minimum wage increasing. The minimum wage is meaningless because of supply and demand in the free market. But how much union workers make is not.

It's all about politics. It's all they know.


7/27/2019 03:00:00 PM



(7/27/2019 02:00:00 PM) - Al

Heh. Eventually, even the left will begin to see a pattern and admit they have a problem.

Luckily for us, that day ain't today.


7/27/2019 02:00:00 PM



(7/27/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

I hope they never stop talking.

Or embarrassing themselves.


7/27/2019 01:30:00 PM



(7/27/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

All it took was giving a damn.


7/27/2019 01:30:00 PM



(7/27/2019 01:00:00 PM) - Al

The old media always feels the need to throw in adjectives they do not need.

Because they're better than us rubes.

Small town Canada is a lot like flyover country in the USA.


7/27/2019 11:30:00 AM



(7/27/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

Coincidentally, that's the exact time before the next big election!

They are as transparent as the air we breathe. I blame Russia myself.


7/27/2019 09:30:00 AM



(7/27/2019 07:34:00 AM) - Al

If the Brewers have 3-4 fewer wins, they would almost certainly not be buyers heading into the trade deadline.  They have been outscored on the season after all.

Chacin, Woodruff, Gio, Nelson, and Burnes. They have a better staff that is injured right now than they have healthy. By far.


7/27/2019 07:34:00 AM



(7/27/2019 07:14:00 AM) - Al

You could see it coming.

On Criminal Minds, the killer is always a mad genius. In real life, they are often just a dopey idiot running a ponzi scheme trying to sell cattle he doesn't own.

The Dennis Miller line, "He should have a bullet in his brain before he gets to the T sound in I did it" comes to mind. Oof.


7/27/2019 07:14:00 AM

He will steal their women and make the little fellas wet themselves* every time he walks by and says, "Hi."



*Because they're such incredible wussies you see. 


7/26/2019 12:30:00 PM



(7/26/2019 11:14:00 AM) - Al

Sounds like the missing brothers from WI who disappeared while checking out folks who were raising cattle for them in MO are thought to have been victims of a scam of some sort...perhaps paying for cattle to be raised that did not exist. 


Sad story. Hard to believe anyone could think they could get away with this.


7/26/2019 11:14:00 AM



(7/26/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

If only someone would have seen that this was a fake from the beginning. You know, if only there would have been a clue...like the only piece of evidence was paid for by the opposing campaign.

Oh wait. I did. And it was.

Hacks.


7/26/2019 11:00:00 AM



(7/26/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

Luckily, the solution is to punish the successful. Until they cry.


7/26/2019 09:00:00 AM



(7/26/2019 05:30:00 AM) - Al

Barry was too busy appearing on ESPN and lying about keeping your plan and your doctor to bother with crap like this.

If I didn't know better, I'd say they were nothing but hypocrites.

7/25/2019 09:30:00 PM



(7/25/2019 08:04:00 PM) - Al

Not a single mention of the days off. Kinda calling it in.


7/25/2019 08:04:00 PM



(7/25/2019 04:20:00 PM) - Al

Brewers call Shaw back up to replace Chacin. Off days today and Monday allow them to carry fewer relievers for the time being.


7/25/2019 04:20:00 PM



(7/25/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

This is the greatest takedown ever.


7/25/2019 12:30:00 PM

I never saw this coming.

Oh wait. Never mind. I did.

(7/25/2019 03:30:00 AM) - Al

Rewrite history all you want. Republicans were anti slavery, anti sharecropping, and supported the Voting Rights Act in the 60's.

And they have always supported the 2nd Amendment.

Love a good Hitler.

The retarded goldfish line was excellent. And true.

He claimed he didn't know who GPS Fusion was. He might as well have denied knowing the flag was red, white, and blue. 


7/24/2019 07:50:00 PM



(7/24/2019 07:30:00 PM) - Al

I'm not saying it could not have gone worse for the left.

They don't need my help.


7/24/2019 07:30:00 PM



(7/24/2019 04:34:00 PM) - Al

Fire Comey!

I can't believe he fired Comey!

Wait until Mueller testifies!

Why did they let Mueller testify?


It's easy to change your mind when you don't really believe in anything. 


7/24/2019 04:34:00 PM

I'm so glad these complete fools are not on my side.


7/24/2019 04:00:00 PM



(7/24/2019 03:23:00 PM) - Al

If only a wise man could have predicted this...

When it's all made up, testifying under oath tends to be a bad idea. If only they would have admitted this to themselves.

They always recall the time the hail mary pass worked. Only the serious among us admits it fails almost every time.



7/24/2019 03:23:00 PM



(7/24/2019 02:16:00 PM) - Al

Heh. Lying liars tend to lie.

Justice Kavanaugh smiles knowingly.


7/24/2019 02:16:00 PM



(7/24/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

I hope they never shut up.


7/24/2019 01:30:00 PM



(7/24/2019 12:40:00 PM) - Al

Reading highlights of Mueller testimony.

Oof. Just when you thought it could not get worse for the left. Mueller had to avoid lying under oath, so was forced to pretend not go know the firm Hillary hired to put together false info on President Trump...probably the most important thing in his "investigation."

Seen on Facebook: As a Democrat, today was the worst day since Jimmy Carter wore a sweater and informed the world he was in way way over his head.



7/24/2019 12:40:00 PM

My love for Shawn Johnson is well documented.

That is one fine looking pregnant woman.

(7/24/2019 08:44:00 AM) - Al

Dems publicly questioning Mueller as not well. They are already practicing damage control. What a farce.

I seem to remember a wise man saying no matter how long they dragged it out, eventually it was going to end and be a huge embarrassment. Not only was he correct, they are ignorantly dragging out the embarrassing, nothing to see here, conclusion.

They always do the exact opposite of what they should. They are the George Costanza of political parties.



7/24/2019 08:44:00 AM



(7/24/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

In theory, this is not a bad idea.

In reality, the government would then decide to give everyone who blinks funny or was born on a day that end in Y more money because...well, you know, the children and the certain thousands of deaths!


7/24/2019 08:00:00 AM

Scott Adams must get tired of hitting the nail on the head.

If only someone would have seen this coming...

He's parroting the message of Clinton and Obama. They're not intelligent enough to realize the rubes have noticed.

How much can one guy cost a huge company?

Pathetic shortsightedness. Bad PR versus a few flights a year.


7/23/2019 06:30:00 PM



(7/23/2019 04:50:00 PM) - Al

Gibault seems like a natural fit for the Brewers if he gets that far or is claimed by more than one team.

High K numbers, options remaining, and probably ready to contribute this season.


7/23/2019 04:50:00 PM



(7/23/2019 03:45:00 PM) - Al

I have a pretty good idea.

It rhymes with Bemocrats.:)

I'm not saying they're negative people. They don't need my help.


7/23/2019 03:45:00 PM



(7/23/2019 12:42:00 PM) - Al

The Crew is on pace to win 84 games. BR says the most likely scenario, based on talent and schedule is to win 83. They have a 32% chance of making the playoffs...but an 8% chance of making the LCS.

Given they never "went for it" last season, at least by trading top prospects (2 of them would have been Hiura and Woodruff), it seems strange to think they would do that this year with a team that is projected to win fewer games and has a lesser chance at the postseason. SP's like Gio...historically above average but in the midst of a poor season...or RP's like Soria...appear to be the best bet, as they are low risk and low cost financially and in terms of prospects.

A veteran 1B/3B would be another decent fit, though such faux player could probably be found on waivers in August, a Granderson type.

I love it when they do this. They show everyone what irrational buffoons they are.

And note how they continue to put down capitalists and constitutionalists.

I'm so glad they aren't on my side.

(7/22/2019 02:30:00 PM) - Al

While the old media insists we are all terrible people, most everyone is a pretty good person if you get to know them.

Barry and Michelle both spent 8 years acting as if every day in the White House was hell on Earth.

Meanwhile, President Trump acts like he's having a blast.

This is sure to bother the Miserabilism party. Because, you know, everything does. My God, this AND a booming economy.

DAMN IT!!!!


7/22/2019 01:30:00 PM



(7/22/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

I wonder what the reason could possibly be?

Teddy was a scumbag in about a dozen ways, but as a wise man has often said, being a liberal means never having to say you're sorry.




7/22/2019 11:30:00 AM



(7/22/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

Heh. Imagine that.

Be happy with gruel comrade!


7/22/2019 09:00:00 AM



(7/22/2019 07:30:00 AM) - Al

Negative people gonna be negative.

Miserablism is a tough concept to really push to the masses. Because, you know, most people are too busy enjoying themselves to be upset at prosperity and patriotism.

(7/21/2019 09:41:00 PM) - Al

Woodruff to injured list.

Meanwhile, I feel fine. You can't pull fat.

Stearns will look for a SP, but I bet he brings in a reliever...they are cheaper trade wise and far more plentiful.



7/21/2019 09:41:00 PM



(7/21/2019 08:07:00 PM) - Al

Brewers win, in virtual tie with 3 other clubs for 2 wildcard spots. 2 games behind Cubs for NL Central.

Winning the past two series allows Stearns to at least test the trade market. A couple less wins and I doubt he would, at least with rentals.


7/21/2019 08:07:00 PM



(7/21/2019 06:30:00 PM) - Al

Brandon Woodruff taken out of the game in the 4th. This just happened on my DVR'd version of the game.*

Well, all right...but that means twice the pillaging next week!

I worked in a pizza place for 5 years. A store manager I worked with at the toy store had been a restaurant manager at Pizza Hut. He had a couple catchphrases he would haul out on occasion that I really enjoyed:

1. Whenever we were really busy, the guys would always mess up an order. When asked why, they would always say the same thing..."Well, it was so busy, I goofed up." Then they had to make the pizza twice. It doesn't help you catch up to do twice the work. Take the time to do it right.

2. When we were getting slammed, I always said, "My God, we're falling half an hour behind every 15 minutes." That's why you can never fall behind. Once you fall behind, it's impossible to get caught up.

The funny part is they have trouble hiding their disgust.

When you hate the people you have power over, the people tend to feel the hatred and not keep you in power. See Clinton, Hillary "basket of deplorables" comment.

Hey Al,

In 2004 Michael Crichton wrote State of Fear.  He wasn't convinced global warming was man made.  But his main point was that human populations are kept under control by fear, or at least worry.  I'm not a conspiracy nut but if you think about it we are being warned, alerted, and informed of danger constantly.  Terrorist bombers, ebola and other exotic diseases, possible earthquakes, global warming, nuclear winters, and heat catastrophes.  For most of a week we had breathless reports on a tropical depression that just barely became a hurricane for about an hour.

I totally agree with you. For Christ's sake people give it a rest.
 
Sam


Negative nellies gonna be negative. While most enjoy the booming economy, and worldwide outbreak of peace; some folks, well, hate their country so much they openly root against prosperity.

Trista tells me Atlanta has 100+ degrees and a heat index of 110+ in the forecast. Let's not go off the deep end and pretend this is dangerous to those of us who consider bending down to pick a quarter to be exercise.

There will be far move movement in AUG than most are expecting. Waiver claims will still happen. A player like Curtis Granderson, for example, is likely to change teams, as Miami has no use for him.

If the Crew goes 1-6 in the next week, players like Thames, Saladino, and the like could be claimed and either let go or "swapped" for a player from the claiming team via waivers. Injuries to a position lacking depth could make any club look to add in AUG...especially on a rental.

What Stearns is basically saying is simple...he wants to buy. But if they go 1-6 in the next week, buying makes no sense. He's also not saying it out loud, but it's what I have talked about often and what he has implied since taking the job:

Being an aggressive buyer and trading prospects in hopes of having a 50% chance of reaching a division series is not intelligent.

I compared Bader to Yelich a couple years ago. Bader's slight off season appears to be almost 100% BAbip related.

The Cards would likely not like to deal him to MIL anyway, and it would require Braun to move to 1B, so the odds of it are slim and none anyway. Still...I really like Bader. He does everything well and is only 25, so he's probably still on his upswing.

My buddy Trista had some of her friends say she had a "sugar daddy" when she would hang up from talking to me or finish chatting with me. She does not take to fools in a positive manner at all, and at times, has a bit of a short fuse. She explained to me that she patiently explained to them that Al was her good friend and the only family she has. She also told them I am far from wealthy, in which someone commented she wasn't very good at choosing a sugar daddy, and great laughter ensued.

She told me this, you see, to make me feel better.

By the way, a few folks have inquired about Trista on Twitter or email since I wrote of my visit to see her. She is doing fine and we continue to chat often. Without going into her private life, I remain proud as hell of her.

There is no money in minor league baseball. None.

The players are worth nothing because no one comes to see them play. If a team replaced their entire roster with generic undrafted free agents and did not tell anyone, only a dozen or so fans would notice...and they would not attending games.

Those that are calling for roster filler to make $50k a season for 6 months work will be shocked when the result is to see fewer teams. They are the simplest of the simple, and do not understand mathematics or capitalism.

I have seen at least a dozen liberals lie about this in the last few days.

You can wear Tshirts if they have a pic of a flag. You cannot wear anything made out of a flag.

You know, if I did not know better, I'd say they lie on purpose. It's not possible they can all possibly be this stupid.

So, it's very warm in Wausau today...about 85 and very humid. I went to Walmart and had to wait a while on one of the benches up front, about 20 minutes.

So, while I was there, 2 young women, probably between 18 and 25, walked by after checking out wearing nothing on their upper half but a bra.

Seinfeld was predictive...and it's still the funniest show on TV.

The problem with Nike and other coastal companies is they have lost touch with the 2/3rd's of the USA which are not liberal hacks. To be truthful, Kappy and his ilk are in the goofy far left 10% of even the hacks.

A former classmate of mine who has run for statewide office as a Dem at least twice has recently been posting as much anti Dem stuff as anti GOP...lots of "we need common sense" type material. When your loyal members start talking about needing a 3rd party, you are in deep, deep trouble.

He's right you know. The irony? They are even more miserable WHEN the USA is coasting along.

To celebrate the birthday of the finest nation to ever exist, I will post the Bobby Warns' tribute video I always keep on the sidebar. Why? Because the unpatriotic HATE it.

207 counties in the USA voted for Obama twice and then voted for President Trump.

Because racism.

I'm so glad they keep saying the exact opposite of what they should. Thankfully for the GOP, they're too caught up in their own ignorance to figure out their message is simply not appealing to moderates and independents in flyover country. The longer they blame it on how stupid those rubes are, the better.

I am unable to link the pretty way on my phone, but the governor of AZ told Nike to take their unpatriotic facility and go to hell.

I recall a few years ago they old media insisted 10% of people were gay and I laughed and laughed and laughed.

4.2% is pretty close. I might guess 3.3% (1 in 30) if my life depended on it. Transgendered is a rounding error of a rounding error of a rounding error. The funny thing? They wonder why every new show having a gay character seems so cliched. Like Seinfeld says, if his show were to come out today, they'd ask where the gay person was. Where's the black person?

{The irony? The character George was based on is comedian George Wallace, who is black.}
