rams, I just wanted to reply to your little bit about Granderson's low BABIP last year. Here's what I could find that could show why his BABIP was down so much:

-FB% up 6% from career, GB% down 7% from career. Ground balls have a higher BABIP than flyballs do. (On a note unrelated to BABIP, he did see his HR totals go up, because he had the same HR/FB as in the past, but he lost a lot in the doubles and triples department).
-Less IFH. After beating out 11, 11, and 14 infield hits the past three years, he reached base just 5 times via IFH. (Obviously a correlation to his GB%).
-More IFFB. His career IFFB% is 7.9%; last year it was 13%. The guy had more than twice as many IFFBs this year than he had any other year in his career.

So, just some things to stew over.

Cameron and Granderson had about the same numbers this year but Granderson's career numbers are better than Cameron's, at least average wise. I don't know... I think it would take more than Granderson is worth to get him. Bringing back Cameron isn't a bad option...

Sounds like the Brewers might already have a new pitching coach.

I was watching the Dodgers Cardinals game last night and they said that Duncan may be on his way out. If that is the case then I say we do whatever it takes to get this guy.

I know he was talked about a bit earlier in the year, but what do you guys think about Mark Rogers? After missing two years because of an arm injury, I was pretty much ready to give up on him, but this is a guy who BA had as the #2 prospect in our system in 2006, and he bounced back this year in A+ ball and posted a 1.67 ERA, a 9+ K/9, a 1.15 WHIP, .3 HR/9 and a 2.3 K/BB. Not sure about his future as a starter, but god knows we could use some competent relievers sometime soon.

Rogers could be a solid bullpen arm but he is older for A+ ball. I say we bring him in for ST and see how he performs before we can even consider him for the MLB club...

Still only 23, plus he just missed two seasons. I hope we give him a shot in ST, and at least let him start the year in Nashville.

As far as getting Granderson, I DO NOT want to deal away Brett Lawrie. I'd be willing to move Gamel but Lawrie is a prized bat but without a solidified position.

I don't really know what we could ship out to bring in Granderson but it's possibly a trade we NEED to do.

The problem with trading for Granderson is that we simply don't have the pieces the Tigers would be looking for. There is absolutely no depth at CF in our system (god I wish we still had Brantley) nor do we have any top flight pitching prospects, and even if we did, we certainly couldn't afford to deal them. So, in order to deal for him, I'd imagine that we'd have to get up 3 of our top prospects, plus a major league player, something we can't really afford to do.

I would be alright with trading Gamel and/or Hardy for pitching, and I would offer Lopez arbitration without a second thought. Rickie Weeks has proven very little, even with a solid start prior to the injury, and Lopez is the definition of solid. If we can afford to give Cameron 10 million this year, we certainly can afford to give Lopez 5 (ish) if no other team comes forward in free agency.

Referring to the Figgins post by rams in the other thread... I really doubt he would come to the Brewers and I dont want him that much eitherway. But I was just really surprised on how he had more walks than anyone in the AL for a guy his size with no power.

I really want Lackey though.

I just got to GB for a party though so the 'big' post is coming tomorrow if I get home feeling okay if you know what i mean. lol.

Brewers are going to try to lock up Prince long term.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't his agent Scott Boras? If it is we have a great shot. Rolling Eyes

I really hope that we can get him signed but I don't think it will happen. If they keep Rickie at second then I would like to see them groom Lawrie to take over at first.

Where did you hear this from? I haven't checked Jsonline in a while so probably from there...

But that would be awesome.. Sign him and Yo-Ga long term.
