Is Jeff Suppan Public Enemy #1?

,If you listen to Milwaukee radio, you would think so.  Both WTMJ and  WSSP discussed Jeff Suppan’s role in the Brewer’s pisuptching rotation.  With Yovani Gallardo getting his first opening day start, the question is will Jeff Suppan being your fifth pitcher?

With Gallardo, Wolf, Double D, and Parra penciled in the first four spots of the rotation, will Suppan’s $12.5 MM contract make him the fifth?  I hope not. 

His spring training has been nothing to write home about, what will Doug Melvin do?

Wisconsin Sports Tap predicts Suppan will not be in the starting rotation.

The Weekend Locker Room

And we’re back.  However, to be honest I leave for Costa Rica in a week so we’ll see where that takes us.

So where do we start?

Well, the Green Bay Packers have decided to wear the UGLIEST uniform ever next season.  They’ll be re-creating the 1929 uniform, the year they won their first World Championship. (Via

The Bucks are on quite the run with beating Cleveland, Boston, and now Utah.  Alex, from Brew Hoop discusses Milwaukee’s new high point. 

So Kobe started the trend, then LeBron followed.  Now we have, Agent Imposter switching to #6 as well.  Not sure why Mr. Arena’s would change his number since who knows when he’ll be on the court.  The real story is that former Marquette standout Wesley Matthews will be giving up #23 and switching to #11 to honor his mother. 

Brewer Fans, meet Rolando Valles.  He is the Latin American liaison for the club.  (via Brewers Beat)

Michael Hunt believes the Brewers season hangs in the balance of Manny Parra’s performance.  The way I see it, in 27 appearances he had a 6.36 ERA, he can’t do much worse than that!

It still may be early in Spring, but who will win the two bench spots and the backup catcher position?  Wisconsin Sports Tap weighs in on this issue.

Pack to the Future Part II. Ahman Green Resigned

First Mark Tauscher, now Ahman Green. Teddy Thompson's plan to save the Packers' '09 season apparently is to go Back to the Future to fix the holes in the offense. Green signed a one-year deal to return to the Pack, where he needs just 46 yards to become Titletowns' all-time leading rusher.

The deal gives the Packers some needed flexibility at running back and Green is expected to split carries with incumbent Ryan Grant.

Here's hoping Ahman regains the form of his first run in Green Bay and can avoid the distractions and injuries that made his Texans tenure a huge failure.

Brewers sign new Pitching Coach, starting pitching still crappy.

The Brewers have selected new pitching coach Rick Peterson (formally of the underachieving New York Mets staff) to help coach the underachieving Milwaukee Brewers pitching staff.

Peterson has ties to both Ken Macha and Willie Randolph and hopefully a PHD in psychology so he can deal with the head cases on this team, like Manny "I'm gonna freakout every time I give up a Homer" Parra.

The upside is he can't be any worse than Bill Castro. I mean there was a reason he was stuck as Bullpen Coach for 10 plus freakin' years. The downside is I believe he was fired from the Mets for being unable to fix the problems he will try to fix here.

How do you feel about the decision? Who would you like to see coaching the Brewers pitching staff. Post your feelings in the comment section.
