In the News

Congrats to the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team for winning a Big 10 title tonight. It's a good day in Wisconsin.

- The Huntsville Stars, a Brewers minor-league affiliate, have offered Roger Clemens a contract. He would serve as their secondary mascot behind Homer the Polecat. He'd get $25 per game, meal vouchers for the concession stands and a 15 percent employee discount at the stadium store. This is obviously a publicity stunt, something that new Huntsville Stars GM Buck Rogers did well in Brevard County before coming to Huntsville, and it was pulled off well. It's good for a little laugh.

- Cameron will play less as spring training continues. Yost wants to get Gwynn, Gross and Kapler ready to man the position while Cameron is suspended.

- Manny Parra pitched three scoreless innings today, allowing two hits, no walks and four strikeouts. An impressive performance. Can he sneak into the starting rotation to begin the year afterall? Dave Bush did nothing to win a spot, giving up five runs (three earned) in three innings.

- Hall is ready to stay at third.

- Yost is hinting that the Brewers may go into the season with 13 pitchers since many of the regular position players will play 150 games or more if healthy.

- Yost says Abraham Nunez has been "very, very, very impressive. Extremely impressive." Could Nunez win a spot on the big league team out of spring training? I still think it's unlikely.

- Catching prospect Lou Palmisano is still battling a sore knee and will undergo a second MRI.

- Outfield prospect Matt LaPorta is batting .571 in his first four Cactus League games.

- Tony Gwynn Jr. is fighting for a role on the team.

- Here's another take on Fielder's vegetarianism.

- Dusty Baker is supposedly good for the Reds. We'll see... Ask Homer Bailey how good he was for his arm in September...

- Non-Brewer note: Aaron Rodgers looks like Scott Stapp. I never would have made the connection, but that's pretty close...
