I would rather not see the Brewers sign Darvish or Arrieta. I guess I have seen this franchise experience too many failed signings of 30-something year old pitchers for four or more years and be burdened accordingly.
I would rather see them trade for the likes of Archer, Fullmer, Manaea, etc. The franchise can afford them via trade more than Darvish or Arrieta via payroll.
Stearns' plan is to acquire young, controllable talent. The Brewers already have team control of Cain and Yellich through 2022. I think they will do something similar by acquiring a relatively young pitcher or two before the regular season starts.
We'll see soon. Either way, in Attanasio and Stearns I trust!

Just coattailing on what Cactus wrote, I agree with staying away from LONG-term deals with starting pitchers in their 30s. If the Brewers could get a deal done for, say, three or four years, I am down with that. I just don't think that the high-end guys will agree to anything less. In Stearns and Attanasio I also trust!

A warming thought for everyone in Pantherland - while driving past the Goodyear Ballpark spring training complex today, I saw several Reds and Indians players in uniform and working out. Hang in there, the baseball season and warmer Wisconsin weather that eventually comes with it is on its way!

Fox Sports Wisconsin's tribute to Davey Nelson at the beginning and throughout last night's Brewer game broadcast was classy. The professionalism exhibited by the production crew and on-air staff was amazing. Hearing guys like Bill Schroeder talk about visiting him just two days before he passed, and Craig Counsel within the week of his passing, showed how much they truly cared. Pride is a quality I rarely feel as a simple sports spectator, but this particular broadcast made me proud to be a Brewer fan.
