Hader for me has blown some games that meant a lot to the Brewers which is something they cannot afford going forward. When you are in such a small market and don't have the cap space to spend every game is important. In 2019 he had 7 blown saves which aren't a lot, but his ERA in the one playoff game was 18.00. That is not acceptable. When the Brewers really needed him to come through and save the game he could not do it. Hence the Brewers were eliminated from the playoffs.
Considering that the Brewers really do not like to spend money trading Hader makes the most sense. Getting younger is key for the Brewers which will help them over the long haul. With Braun getting older and Cain as well Milwaukee needs to make plans for the future.
An ideal situation would be to keep Hader, but if you can get a lot for him you must move him. This way you can help the team over the long term and still be competitive.

I was lucky enough to meet Hamilton and got his autograph and he was a classy guy. He always found time for the fans and signing autographs. He played for a number of different teams, but everywhere he played his teammates have fond memories of him. He was the kind of guy that was a total team player. He will be missed as he was a special ballplayer. If you ever met him he would always put a smile on your face. Fun guy to talk to and a hard worker on and off the field. R.I.P. Darryl Hamilton.

Most people do not realize that Coop as he was known could do almost anything with the bat. If you needed a bunt, single or home run he could do it all. He made himself a complete player which is rare in today's game. Even though his numbers were not great in Boston he made up for that in Milwaukee. He helped the Brewers make the playoffs and was a consistent player during his time with the Brewers.
Cooper managed the Houston Astros, but was fired in 2009. He now lives in Texas with his wife Tori and has two grown daughters. Cecil Cooper was not the biggest star in his career, but a player that produced in the clutch and on a consistent basis.

Ryan Braun now has the 2013 season behind him and all the lies and troubles. What kind of season can Brewers fans expect from their talented superstar? The truth is Ryan Braun did not need the drug enhancing help, as he was a good player before those things entered his body. One of the toughest things Ryan Braun will deal with is the abuse from fans. It can get pretty nasty and how he handles could determine what kind of season he will have this season. Braun has been pretty good about handling the boos, but if he struggles the boos may become a problem.
I look for Braun to have a MVP type season once again. He should be rested as his suspension helped him get healthy once again. When healthly Ryan Braun is one of the best players in baseball. The Milwaukee Brewers need him this season if they want to improve on the dismal 2013 season. Fans of the Milwaukee Brewers will expect alot from Braun as he has let them down in the past. For him to get back in there good graces it will take a couple of great seasons.

Ryan Braun was trusted by many including management and fans. He shot an arrow through everyone’s heart with his suspension. We trusted him and believe he was innocent for such a long time and the most he can give us is I’m sorry. Well, Mr. Braun that is not good enough for us Milwaukee Brewers fans. We expect much more from our players then what you have given us lately.
Growing up watching the Milwaukee Brewers players like Sixto Lezcano, Cecil Cooper, and Gorman Thomas did things the right way. These were some of the guys that built the foundation that you enjoy. Robin Yount and Paul Molitor never took short cuts and that is why they are in the Hall Of Fame. Mr. Braun you will never be a Hall Of Fame player now. At one time we thought you were destined to be there beside other Brewers. That day is forever gone and you cheated the fans which probably what hurts the most.
Suspension is not a punishment fitting the crime if you ask die-hard Brewers fans. We want more and should receive more in the gift of never seeing you wear the Milwaukee Brewers uniform again. It is a privileged to wear that uniform and you have tarnished everyone from former players to fans who trusted you. Hopefully, you will learn taking short cuts is not the way of the Brewers organization and banishment as a Brewers player is the only thing you will understand.

rookie shortstop Jean Segura and two Double-A pitchers. The three prospects were some of the better ones in the Angels organization. I do not like the trade for a few reasons as the Brewers should know by now pitching wins championships.
Milwaukee traded Greinke away and that is a shame as he is a very good pitcher. Finding pitchers like Greinke are rare these days, so when you get them you should hold on to them very tight. Yes, Milwaukee got some good prospects for them, but in reality nothing that will help them right away. It looks for the Brewers fans this could be another one of those lost seasons as they struggle to get back into the playoff race.

Milwaukee needs to make a decision Fielder soon as they must either move forward or try to make some kind of good offer towards him. I love Fielder, but as I have written before letting him go is the Brewers best option. Milwaukee needs a good everyday shortstop and the money we spend on Fielder can help the Brewers in many other ways. Fielder will be missed, but sometimes you just have to move on.
Getting more starting pitching is something the Brewers need to look into as well. Third base is another question mark for Milwaukee. Will they give Casey McGehee another chance, or will they groom someone else for that position. As you can see the Milwaukee Brewers have many questions they must get answers to and real soon.

Give the St. Louis Cardinals a lot of credit though as they earned this series as much as the Brewers gave it away. The Cardinals have come a long way to get where they are right now and deserve a chance to win a World Series title. They went through the Phillies and Brewers to get to the World Series. That was no easy task, but they were able to do it and should be commended on getting the job done.

Last night Morgan had a critical double, but was quiet and really did not have much to say after the game. Even though the Brewers won the game Morgan not talking is something that does not happen often. He usually loves to be in front of the camera talking. It was a departure from the Tony Plush Nyjer Morgan Brewers fans have come to know. No matter what Morgan has been a loud spark plug that the Brewers have needed this season and his contribution has been huge during the 2011 run into the playoffs.

Brewers rabble-rousing center fielder Nyjer Morgan got in a heated confrontation with Carpenter late in the regular season—yet another sign that the two NL Central rivals don’t like each other much. Both teams really do not like each other,so it should be an interesting series. I expect to see tempers flare and a few bench clearing incidents before this one is said and done.

The Brewers will miss the production that Fielder gave them, but they will not miss his inconsistency in the clutch. For as good as Prince Fielder has been he has never been a clutch performer when the Brewers have needed him. This season he has been anything but clutch, so losing him in my opinion will not be as bad as many people think.
Many times you have to make changes and the change at first in reality will be good for the Brewers. It may not seem like it right now, but over the long haul it will be. It's time Brewers fans look towards the future and Fielder should not be in those plans.

What did we learn from this series? Both teams have good starting pitching, but Philadelphia is just a little bit better. Milwaukee has some good hitters, but the Phillies hitters performed in the clutch the Brewers did not. Both teams are talented, but over time the Phillies have proven they can beat anyone almost anywhere. The Milwaukee Brewers are still a team trying to learn how to do that. It looks right now the Phillies are still the best until someone proves different. This past weekend the Brewers found out just how good the Phillies are.
