Both Looper and Counsell had surgery to repair a torn meniscuss in their right knees. I Would be surprised if both were not back with the Brewers next year. Counsell is a free agent, but will most likely not come as cheap as last year given his contributions this past season. Looper has a mutual option.
Mike Burns was outrighted to Nashville to open a spot on the 40 man.
The Atro's are looking to do even worse in the future:
If my 2nd grade math skills are correct, only 128 days until pitchers and catchers report. Feburary 20th. It took me like 20 minutes to figure that out.
Tickets are going up a few bucks for next year for most areas. Brewers tickets are still 4$ under the national average. I'm more than willing to pay the few extra bucks to field a winning team. I'm chalking this year up as a speed bump...
God, please don't let the series be the Yankee's vs. Phillies. I don't know if I could watch that. I think I might hate the Phillies more than the Yankee's if that's possible. This may be due to the following formula:
Corey Hart + Jason Werth = Edge look alikes + tractor tattoos x too tall jones - bad hair + moronic statements +bad entrance music > an ugly wife = I hate the Phillies
