More on the '09 Milwaukee Brewers
While it is not official, it appears that the Crew is on the verge of signing FA starting pitcher Braden Looper. Not exactly a blockbuster signing, but considering the lack of depth and talent that we have in the starting rotation, adding a vet to the staff should be an overall benefit to the team. Looper earned 5.5mil on the '08 season, and it's unclear whether or not he will take a paycut so if it's in the range of 5 mil I don't see a problem with it. Hek, we're paying Supp 10+mil for a 0.500 win percentage and 4.5ish era so in comparison Looper is a bargain. Agreed?
