Morning Ramble 11/19

Right Field BleachersCorrespondent INovember 19, 2009

Not much happening this week so far, but a couple notes:

The Brewers claimed a catcher from the Red Sox organization, George Kattaras. Competition is never a bad thing.

Right now from the rumor postings and sporting magazines making predictions, the most likely candidates to come to the Brewers are Mark Mulder, Jarrod Washburn, and Randy Wolf. Uggh…

Fox Sports also wrote that Gamel probably won’t be traded because he won’t net a fair return by himself and Weeks won’t be traded because he will be too expensive for a player coming off an injury.

Probably the funniest thing I read was that Eric Gagne wants to be a starter in Major League Baseball. Sure, the guy who could barely make it past an inning in relief wants to start..what is he going to do, lob the ball like Henry Rowengartner when he had no arm left either? Gord Ash’s quote was good too: “I don’t see that”. It’s simple, but direct. No messing around.

Things should start getting interesting again on Friday…
