With his $10 million contract hanging around our necks, Doug Melvin and Mark Attanasio seemed to be hoping for a miracle resurgence from Jeff Suppan this season.

Here�s what Macha had to say: �Hopefully I�ll be able to answer that tomorrow. That�s my best answer.� As Haudricourt put it, since when...

With the signing on Doug Davis, the Brewers now have six starting pitchers on their roster - Dave Bush, Davis, Yovani Gallardo, Manny Parra, Jeff Suppan and Randy Wolf. Since the rotation is only give guys, someone clearly has to go. Does this mean we're finally clear of the dreaded Soup-start? According to Adam McCalvy, GM Doug Melvin said, "Players help make these decisions." I assume Melvin's s...
