Gwynn Sent Down, But Still Full of Potential

If his name was Tony Sanderson, we wouldn't even be having this discussion. But his name is Tony Gwynn Jr., so here we go. Tony Gwynn Jr.'s fabled career with the Milwaukee Brewers took another turn today, as he was once again sent down to Triple-A Nashville. This, after he was placed on waivers, and was not claimed by anyone. Not even the Padres.

Everyone knows that Gwynn will be a Padre sooner or later, but apparently he's not even better than Jody Gerut at this present time. All San Diego, or any other team, would have had to do was pony up $20,000 to the Crew and Gwynn would have been theirs. Apparently, Gwynn is not worth it. (At least not yet, I mean, Gwynn does have soooo much potential. I'm not rooting against the guy by any means, but I don't see it happening. I just don't.)

The Brewers did pick up a guy off of waivers, by the name of Joe Koshansky. The first basemen was claimed off waivers from the Rangers, and will spend time with Nashville as well. Adam McCalvy's article has more about Koskansky.

As for yesterday, Jeff Suppan looked good on the hill and Prince Fielder homered as the Crew beat the White Sox 2-1. The Brewers will have two games against the Dodgers in Los Angeles this weekend and then head to San Francisco for Opening Day on Tuesday. Can not wait.

Box. Player of the Game: Let's give it to Soup, why not?
