Brewers in talks with Kimbrel

Postby UMFan83 » Wed Mar 20, 2019 2:39 am



Did this rumor need it’s own thread? No

Have I been drinking and have a desire to inflame the masses? Yes

Remember when we mocked all those Brewers fans who said sterns was a genius and Theo spent all his capital already?

I feel so out on the cubs right now. I hope they do get him and he shoves.

I think we are in for a rough year.

My level of interest is at like 2014 levels right now and it’s not even about the offseason. Ok it’s partially that but also all the off the field stuff. Thinking about the Cubs these days gives me a bad taste in my mouth.

Just wait until we get the first Addison Russell redemption stories when he goes 3-for-5 after coming back.

This close to the season Kimbrel seems ripe to have a rough season like what happened with Greg Holland last year.

That being said he's coming from a much higher perch and the Brewers are good at relievers, so I'd obviously still be worried.

Oh, it’s going to be worse than that. The Cubs are going to do really well, like extremely well, and every [expletive] under the sun will praise their temperance.

This team deserves to have great players go to their direct competition after the horsecrap penny-pinching garbage this offseason.

said about even pennier pinchinger direct competition

the mid-small market franchises claiming their billionaire owners can't afford a damn thing are arguably worse

Brewers involvement feels to me like a push for Philly or Atlanta to up their offers. Which of course means he's probably signed with the Brewers as I'm typing this.

The Ricketts must be sending money to Donald for his re-election campaign.
