    nice!!!!!

    Great move!

    is ryan Braun allowed to play now ?

    if so they might be a good sleeper pick to win the division

    Is it mere coincidence that that's the exact contract that the Cubs gave Edwin Jackson? Oops.

    They have a pretty damn good offensive team.

    Ryan Braun vows to be better than you have ever seem this year.

    If the Brewers bullpen is any good they have a shot.

    Garza has about 10 good starts in him a year. Other than that, he is mediocre or hurt.

    if he is smart he did a cycle or 2 in the off season and will give himself enough time to piss clean in spring training.

    The guy knows how to play baseball ... and once he gets big its easier to maintain than it is to gain..

    Brewers are the weirdest franchise in MLB.
    They cry poverty and let big names go in the past, but then make moves like this for mediocre overrated players.
    Don't know who runs their team worse, them or the Mets.

    yall gotta admit they got some good hitters though.

    Gomez
    Lucroy
    Braun
    Francisco
    Segura

    those guys can rake!

    and that second basemen looks promising too

    Where does Garza fit in the rotation. He is lucky to get such a contract

    The big names wanted a hell of a lot more than 12 mil a year. It's a gamble, if Garza stays healthy its a good move, big if though.

    Brewers couldn't put it all together years ago when they had their best team and a roided up Braun.

    The potential has always been there to a degree, the execution has not. Barring some lightning-in-a-bottle Pirates type season, it's Sub-.500 City again.

    MLB network said they actually expected him to get more money/ years

    people seem to forget Garza is pretty nasty.

    Braun was suspended for awhile ... Lohse got off to a slow start bc of a lack of spring training...

    i would be shocked if the Brewers dont atleast have a better record this year than last year

    solid line-up

    Lohse
    Gallardo
    Garza
    Gorzellany
    Perlata

    wouldnt be too bad of a rotation

    other teams have worse rotations, this one really isn't that bad
    Garza usually pitches well for a short time until he gets hurt or gets too sore then he isn't worth much
