The Brewers sign Lohse.. give up a 1st rounder to the Cards and pay 11 million a year for 3 years... 34 years old.

Ugh.. I think this may help this season.. maybe next.. but will probably become a noose in the third year. Randy Wolf type player.

I would rather have rode out the young pitchers early to see how it plays out.. still going to be counting on them heavily anyway..

A few years ago I had Kyle on a fantasy team. Like the Cards I picked him up late in the draft because I was stuck and was desperate for pitching. He does ok some years and then stunk for a couple more. I retired before he really hit his grove with them but since I was burnt I have have always been a little squeamish.

It does not make since for Milw to grab him no matter how desperate they are. Giving up a draft pick (And of course MLB is not the same as the NFL when it comes to drafts.) for Lohse is just plan dumb. You are right they may get 2 of the 3 years out of him but he is getting long in the tooth and they may only get one decent year out of him.

He needs to go to a contending team. Someone who doesn't mind paying $11 a year for a #3-4 pitcher because he will help put them over the top and they will contend.

Tampa could use him. The Angles, Texas, Toronto even Atlanta would improve their rotation by putting him in the middle of it. Milwaukee jumped the gun. I couldn't see him getting more than $8-9 mil a year.

Don't get me wrong- I wish him all the best but I think he and Milwaukee both made a mistake. Kyle by not taking the StL offer and Milw by signing him and giving up a #1 pick. Even if he wins 20 games, strike out 200 and has an ERA of 2.00 Milwaukee is still going to finish 3rd and not make the playoffs.

He will do one thing and that is to help teach a bunch of the young kids on the staff.

Ahhhh... I am humored by your dismissal of the Brewers.. potent offense with a revamped bullpen and a number of options at starters.

I don't endorse the signing.. but penciling in the Brewers at third brings a smile to my face. We shall see...

Indeed. That is why way play the games.
Some "experts" have Milwaukee finishing 4th. I at least bumped them up a notch.
