Milwaukee Brewers Week in Review: September 5-11

The week in review:  The Milwaukee Brewers kicked off last week with a big 12-5 win over the Chicago Cubs at home, and followed that with a 2-1 win to take the series.  They moved on to St. Louis and again won big by a 12-5 score. The four game series was ultimately split.  After the Cards won the middle two games, Milwaukee won 2-1 on Sunday.  Going into Monday’s action the Brewers are 64-79, good for fourth place in the NL Central and 27.5 games behind the division-leading Cubs.




Accepting the Qualifying Offer Hasn’t Gone as Planned for These 3 MLB Players

When the qualifying offer system was developed for MLB free agents, it was supposed to help players, but it’s done just the opposite. After first being put into play for the 2012 offseason, we didn’t even see a pending free agent accept one until last winter.

One would imagine the thought process for Matt WietersBrett Anderson and Colby Rasmus to break that cycle was rather simple: Get a guaranteed payday in the short-term while using another solid season to land a multi-year deal the following winter. Given each of their situations, this made sense.

But sometimes, the best-laid plans don’t work out. That’s what’s happened to these three players with the regular season’s final month upon us, forcing them to face free agency once again.
