The Weekend Kick-Off with Chris Callaway
Last night was very interesting, for both Milwaukee Brewers fans and New York Mets fans alike.

with this cherry on top.
Boras: "There is nothing at issue with Carlos Gomez's health. He is playing every day. That is the proof of his health. He is fine."

As I’ve written here before, it is of my belief that the Brewers should trade Carlos Gomez. I was intrigued by the (alleged) haul they were getting back from New York. This was my HOT TAKE.
Brewers could have done a whole lot worse in trading Carlos Gomez. I'm a fan of the trade.

And I legitimately was! Gomez had decreased just a bit this season, to where the point where a 25-year old potential ace (albeit coming off Tommy John surgery, but that’s ok) and a 23-year old prospect who’s got […]
If you want to know why the Milwaukee Brewers are (hopefully) going to be huge sellers at the trade deadline, it’s in small part for reasons such as this list. Now, they don’t care about what some writer says, but the idea behind it holds true.

With it being a relatively slow sports weekend (a couple of baseball games and a weather-delayed golf major happening across the pond), there was enough of a spotlight in Wisconsin on the Ol’ Gunslinger, as Brett Favre first has his jersey retirement ceremony at Lambeau Field on Saturday night, before having his Legends Game flag football contest on Sunday afternoon.
It was a weekend (Saturday in particular) that needed to happen eventually, so that the conversation could be over. Since his press conference in March of 2008 in which he told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen this:
“I know I can still play, […]
Last night’s Home Run Derby was captivating television, for a number of reasons. First off, the home-town guy won. Not that Todd Frazier is originally from Cincinnati (Toms River, NJ represent!), but he’s played for the Reds for his entire career so it’s safe to say the home crowd was firmly behind him. Second, the timed rounds worked. For the first time, baseball had a clock built into it, so there was the inherent drama of the clock winding down. Third, the talent was just there! From young guys Joc Pederson, Kris Bryant and Manny Machado to older folks […]
