Gallardo, Rickie and a Nilsson Update

Gallardo_1 Do you think the Brewers will call up Yovanni Gallardo this year?

I’ve gotten a ton of e-mails asking about Yovanni, so I figured I’d answer them all at once.

At this point in time, the Brewers will not call up Yovanni, unless one of our starting pitchers goes down with an injury. Yovanni’s pitching lights out in Nashville with an 8-2 record, an ERA of 2.89 and 98 K’s in 71 1/3 innings.

Of course, the last time I answered a call-up questions, it was about Ryan Braun. I said he’d be called up after the All-Star break and he was, in fact, called up the next day– so who knows about Yovanni!

Rickie_1 When Rickie comes back do you think that Ned will leave Corey in the lead-off spot?

When Rickie returns to the lineup, I believe manager Ned Yost will insert Rickie back in the lead-off spot. The way our lineup shapes up, Rickie is best suited in the lead-off spot. Corey is so adaptable in the lineup, he can fit anywhere with great results.

Last time, I answered a question about former Brewer Dave Nilsson. He’s contacted me and had this to share:


"I am living on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
I’ve been appointed by MLB to run The MLB Academy in Australia. (June,July,August.)
Good to see The Brew Crew having success.


Kind of eerie, Dave. They called up Braun the day after you talked about it, and then you say that the only way they’d call up Gallardo is if a starter went down with an injury….and the next night (tonight) Cappy strains his groin.

How about answering a question about when the Brewers will start a 15-game winning streak or something? 🙂

Keep up the good work!
