That's What Happens After a 13-6 Loss...

... especially to the San Diego Padres, at home. Haudricourt is calling this "Black Wednesday" for the Brewers, and this is one of the rare times I agree with the guy. The Brewers are definitely desperate to save this season, and they pulled out all the stops today shaking up the clubhouse. The moves:

1. Pitching coach Bill Castro fired. Nashville's pitching coach Chris Bosio promoted.

Reaction: Fine with me. I like Castro and all, and he deserved this opportunity, but didn't take advantage of it. Plus, he visited the mound WAY too often. Brewers games will be 10-15 minutes shorter because of this move. As for Bosio, he was one of my favorite Brewers back in the card collecting days.

2. Hardy to Nashville, Escobar to Milwaukee.

Reaction: Wow. That move takes balls. Surprising especially since the Brewers are probably looking to move Hardy this winter, but on the other hand this will help see what they really have in Escobar. Very excited about this move, sorry Hardy fans.

3. Bill Hall designated for assignment. OF Jason Burgeois promoted to Milwaukee.

Reaction: Don't get too excited, no one is claiming this piece of shit. He'll ride the year out in Nashville and then we'll see what happens. Hilarious that he hit a home run last night though.

We'll see how this all works out tonight when the Brewers look for revenge at 7:05pm. Interesting stuff, to say the least.

Player of the Game: Thought, just for a moment, about giving it to Bill Hall. But there is no love lost between me and him, so I'm giving it to Hernan Iribarren! He was 2-for-2 with an RBI! Why not?

No, you're definitely right. I wrote that in a hurry and didn't really think it out.

Hall would be stupid to go down to Nashville. I could see him playing ball with a team like Pittsburgh early next week.
