In the News

I figure i'd take the reigns on an abbreviated In the News to give Jared a breather.

Ryan Braun to appear on SI Baseball 2008 Baseball Preview issue: I'm not too accustomed to the Brewers getting mainstream print media mention, much less covers, so I like this...pending he can stave off the supposed "SI Curse." Justin Upton of the Diamondbacks and ROY runner-up Troy Tulowitzki will appear alongside Braun.

"Home" whoops "Away" 10-4 in today's intersquad game: Prince went 2 for 3 with 3 RBI and a two-bagger. My cousin Vinny (possibly motivated by a dangling roster spot, ha) apparently doinked Gwynn Jr. in the nose on a throw down to second. Gwynn was okay, and went on to swipe third. Let's hope the run production carries over to tomorrow.

Carlos Villanueva resigns for 2008: It is what it is. Not much threat of him not signing, but good to see it's official.

U.S. Cellular inks multi-million dollar deal with Brewers: I have no real opinion on this. I have U.S. Cellular - maybe i'll visit the kiosk?

Zach Jackson looks to rebound in 2008: I think I like ZJ more than any other RFBer. We saw him pitch a so-so start in Nashville last August. I think as a young lefty, he'll be a Miller Park regular eventually. He was another great part of the Overbay/Taubenheim deal. Even a Jackson for Taubenheim swap would've been a steal in retrospect.

List of Non Roster invitees: I feel like I should just make this available to scope out incase anyone is interested.

I'm sure the blog (me and Jared at least) will be abuzz with news views and thoughts on tomorrow's first game.

Welcome to baseball season, friends!

Man, beat by 18 minutes! Oh, well I spent like 10 mins on this... so it stays!

A lot of my and Jared's news matches, and his is better... but our takes differ on some.
