    I'm confused? Last night's game? Those are the standard road grays.


    The powder blue "Brew Crew" they've worn at home a few times now are the City Connect jerseys and they're actually pretty awesome. The grill patch is perfect, and I love the 414/MKE cap logo.



    I do fear the point where the "Motre Bame" interlocking MB logo gets busted out on the regular as a *retro* jersey for the Brewers.

    • They're all bad. Even the ones that aren't actively bad are just unnecessary. Do we really need more uniforms throughout the season?

          • Why would the Brewers, leading the NLC, trade Josh Hader?
            A bad cause requires many words.

                Because he's been trash the last two months, is owed $15 Mil next year, is a free agent after 2023, and the Padres gave decent MLB-now talent as a return.

                David Stearns (and Doug Melvin before him) and Mark Attanasio can't afford to do a "deep rebuild" because the fan base would (rightfully) turn on them when the rebuild struggles. So they go through these soft reboots every three years or so. Hader wasn't going to be a long term guy, and there are two or three people who can close (and have had to these last few months)

                As a Brewers fan, I'm cool with it. It's going to be another in the long line of "squeezing the most from them, trading them when their value is highest, and watching them never be as good." See: Yovanni Gallardo, Jonathan Lucroy, JJ Hardy, Carlos Gomez, Jean Segura, Zach Grienke...

                  We're leading the division by five games. Weird time to rebuild.

                      I would echo these thoughts as well as a brewers fan. I am cool with a trade. A co-worker who also follows the brewers closely has been calling for it for the last 2 months, and was so excited he put a sticky on my desk to come chat ASAP.

                      I also would add that most of my life, the Brewers never made the playoffs. I have been much happier making the playoffs ~50% of the time, have a small chance to win because you never know what will happen, in comparison of being in a constant rebuild and maybe have a championship caliber team once in a lifetime.

                      • A friend was discussing the best baseball-first cities in America. This is the list I came up with. Any glaring omissions? Ranked by the degree to which baseball exceeds other sports in real local interest.

                        1. New York
                        2. St. Louis
                        3. Cincinnati
                        4. Milwaukee
                        5. Chicago

                        San Diego is probably in there, I just don't know anything about the locals.

                          I mean I hope baseball exceeds interest in other sports because it's all they've got left.

                            But for example Portland only has hoops but not just soccer but also track and hockey are of greater local interest.

                            I assume Green Bay's interest in football is dwarfed by their commitment to binge drinking.

                              • I don't know that baseball is #1 in Chicago, and if it is not significantly so.

                                If Pirate fans hadn't been beaten down for most of the last 40 years, they'd be higher up. But crap ownership happened. They love baseball there.
