In the News Jr. (6/26)

The Brewers are off today and will travel to Minneapolis to begin a three game series with their frenemies across the Mississippi, the Twins. Here's a brief round-up of the day that wasn't for the Milwaukee Brewers.

- Ben Sheets will test the waters of free agency this off season: Let’s hope he gives the Brewers the hometown discount, otherwise he’s probably gone.

- Double-A prospects Matt LaPorta and Mat Gamel were named to the U.S. Futures Team roster.

- Shawn Chacon threw Astros GM Ed Wade to the ground: This comes as a result of frustration of his banishment to the bullpen. He has since been suspended (edit: released).

- Ken Rosenthal isn’t so fast to put all the blame on Chacon for the incident: He says Wade yelled at Chacon in the clubhouse's crowded dining room and told him to "(expletive) look in the mirror."

- Russell Branyan uses a unique form of training to keep his eyes sharp.

- The Cubs have been accused of stealing signs: Goat Riders of the Apocalypse has a unique take on the accusations.

- Let's get to know Tim Dillard.

- Bucks news on Right Field Bleachers?!?!: I never thought I'd see the day when news regarding the redheaded stepchild of Wisconsin sports would appear on this site, but in some exciting NBA news (oxymoron?) the Bucks have traded Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons to the Nets for All-Star forward Richard Jefferson. I like Jefferson a lot. He and Redd could get the Bucks back in the playoffs - not that it's a difficult feat in the East.
