Jon Lester signs with the Nate.

Cub pitching looks awful for 2021. Lester was a shell of his former self but could still be the mature anchor of tHe staff.

Maybe it doesn't matter how bad your teams pitching will be.

So much for baseball records: juiced baseballs, juiced players, pampered pitchers (i.e. 6 innings or less).

Bring back the doubleheader and give the fan a break.

Nothing will top the Beer Mug, but that seems to be a cool update.

So the team is now the Milwaukee Family Insurers. Has a nice ring to it.

Brewers sign Jackie Bradley, Jr.  Looks like a good value, low risk signing.

I loved that guy, hate to see him leave the Red Sox.  He is super streaky hitter.  For about one 4 week stretch a year, he is Willie Mays in his prime.  He hits .350 with power and chases down everything in the outfield.  The rest of the year he reminds me of Darren Lewis, a .220 hitter who chases down everything in the outfield.  He is less than his zenith as an outfielder, but still great out there.

If Burnes is legit like last year, the Brewers might get to 90 wins while averaging 3 runs per game.

Early reports out of spring training say Burnes is looking even better than last year.

Burnes for Cy Young is a great value bet at +4000.

Also good value in Yelich for MVP at +700.

Brewers do seem to be doubling down on pure run prevention. I guess if you can keep the other team off the board, sneaking a 1-0 or 2-1 win against the Dodgers is probably a better bet than beating them in a slugfest.

I wonder if Cain is opting out? I not, JBJ seems like a strange signing.

Having your four highest paid players all be outfielders is an interesting strategy. I'm guessing that Cain may not be 100% after sitting a year.

Cain's status was the first thing I thought of when I saw the signing too.  Maybe he's thinking about opting out again, or maybe he's just not looking like himself.  He only had an okay 2019 behind the plate and then opted out last year, and will be 35 in April.  So even if Cain is playing this could be a bit of a hedge.

My second thought was that I'm really curious to see what kind of money/years Odorizzi gets when he signs.  He's looking for 3 years in the 13-15 range, wonder if something like $33/3 will get it done.

Have you seen Avisail Garcia play? He hit like Kevin Elster last year and, at best, is an average defender. Brewers don't want to get stuck in the same situation with him that they did last year. I see Cain in RF a lot this year.

Moving Cain to RF would mitigate him having lost a half step.

Bradley bats lefty so they could end up platooning in some fashion as well.

I don’t know the exact context, but I guess Counsell said “Cain is our Center Fielder.”
