Hair of the Dog, 10/27/08

This post may be a bit sloppy since I have about 10 minutest to throw it together. But there's just too much interesting news that I had to at least throw up a few links, and Paul is apparently without a computer for a few days. I assume his exploded.

Anyway....

MLB trade rumors is reporting a rumor that the Brewers will offer C.C. Sabathia $100 Million over 4 years. That would give him a higher dollar value per year than the Santana-like contract most people have been guessing, but for two fewer years. They also note that Sabathia and Mike Cameron are buds and it would improve the Brewers' chances of re-signing him if they keep Cameron around. That's cool with me.

On the fat vegetarian front, the Brewers have stated for the first time that they will entertain offers for Prince.

On the Manager front, it looks like Macha has the inside track. He seems to be the preferred choice of Brewed Sports, although I do find it troubling that Jason Kendall doesn't like him. Unlike "hitting," one of Kendall's skills does seem to be "thinking." Interestingly, Yost is a candidate for the Seattle job working for Jack Z.

The Favre family is blogging at favrehopefoundation.blogspot.com. So far it's been the wife and daughter, and it's been really really boring. The last post is from Deanna. If you have six hours to kill, give it a read.

The Badgers finally looked like a Division I football program in their win against Illinois. Sherer even looked sort of like a quarterback in the second half. But Beckum is out for the season.

Paying CC 25 Mil a year would put us at 95million or so if we didn't make any other moves.

Trading Prince could free up 7 or 8 million of that.

I am certainly more open to dealing Prince to free up room for CC than the other rumors directed to dealing Hardy.

I agree. I can't imagine why we'd deal Hardy but lots of people seem to be pushing for it. Fielder isn't getting any thinner. He's a DH if there ever was one.

I Jack Z. is dumb enough to hire Yost, I'm not upset he left anymore.

If the Brewers don't pick up Cameron's option something is seriously wrong.

Move Fielder for Grienke!

and I know how you feel Paul, my power supply blew up over the weekend...thankfully I am "dorky" enough that I was able to replace it in no time.

What a nerd.

"Trading Prince could free up 7 or 8 million of that."

If the rumor is true that CC actually cares whether or not Cameron will be around, it's possible he'll want Prince around too. They seemed to always be talking in the dugout. I assume about where the best big and tall clothing stores are.

That is quite an assumtion
