- Despite it being logical, Doug Melvin doesn’t believe that Ben Sheets will return to Milwaukee. We shall see…

- Brew Crew Ball believes that Braden Looper is slightly worse than Dave Bush. No one is saying it was a “sexy” choice like Garland, but I agree when they say that the signing has made the Brewers rotation above average and Seth McClung is an above average replacement.

- By the way, the option on Looper’s contract is reportedly a mutual one for 2010.

Minor Leagues

- MLB Fanhouse highlights Mat Gamel, Angel Salome, and Alcides Escobar. If you’re a normal RFB reader (or Brewer fan), you already know all the information in here.

- Get to Appleton for the T-Rats opener for the awesome bobblehead pictured on the top of the page!

- The Astros re-signed speedster Michael Bourn.

- The Nats can’t get Durham out of premature retirement. Ouchies, Nat Fans
