    Glad to see we've signed Wade Miley and are nickel and diming Burnes in arbitration. I think this fully cements that burnes won't be back long term. Maybe woody or Adames will be, but no way you fight for $750k in arb if you're having good negotiations with the guy on an extension.

    This team is doing what we do every year. If everything breaks just right, we can possibly contend. Problem is, the likelihood of everything breaking right is slim, which means we probably end up winning like 86 games and are in the hunt for a wild card for a decent chunk of the year like always.

    I like the Brian Anderson signing. That being said, it's such an annoying signing too because it's typical Brewers. Maybe Anderson is the guy we wanted all along. But it feels like we look at the market and instead of going to getting the guy we want, we wait until the market is picked over and then we sign whoever is left for a cheaper deal. And normally I would say that's fine. But for once I wouldn't hate actually trying to fill a hole on the team with a guy we like, not just whoever is left.

    It's nothing against Anderson or Miley, but those guys aren't needle movers. We aren't that much better with them than without.

    Net so far this year we lost Renfroe, Wong, narvaez and some middle to later relief. We've gained contreras, Anderson, winker, Miley and some cheap relief options. We aren't really worse, but our post hader trade team was not great last year anyways. So it's hard to imagine we are actually good this year.
