Hart signs 1-year deal, while Macha reveals some tactics

Corey Hart inked a 1-year deal at the midpoint of the club’s offer and his contract request, or for $3.25 million…a healthy $1.25 million less than I predicted, according to JSOnline.com.

Also, new Brewers’ skipper Ken Macha has hinted that:
1. Yovani Gallardo is not likely to be the #1 guy in the rotation, due to his lack of experience, and,
2. He’s leaning towards Rickie Weeks and J.J. Hardy batting 1-2 in the order

I expected the Gallardo move, as it is way too much to put on a guy that missed most of his rookie season with an injury.  The second announcement is not unusual, either, except that stating that Hardy will be the #2 hitter on the day that Corey Hart signs is kind of a stick in his eye.  Still, the Crew jacked Hardy around last year–or should I say Ned Yost did–having Hardy hit in the #7 spot ahead of the pitcher, something that irked Hardy to no end…giving him the heads-up in Cactus League that the #2 spot is his to lose has got to help his confidence…not to mention taking off some of the pressure off of Hart.

Oh, and Eric Gagne signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers.  Seems he approached Doug Melvin at the end of last year and admitted that he didn’t earn his $10 million.  It will be interesting to see how much of a look they give him…odds are it could be Gagne’s swan song.

    Per your ongoing complaints at WV23, we did not post at your site or any Brewers site.
    The only place the apparently offensive story was posted was at WV23. It showed up in your community news section because it was given a Brewers tag because it was about, well, the Brewers.
    I hope you don’t believe that you’re the only one who can write about the Brewers.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
