Brewers look at 2nd washed-up Cardinal

Mulder to Milwaukee?

ESPN's Buster Olney speculates on something in his blog today that makes a whole lot of sense to me -- that lefty Mark Mulder could end up in Milwaukee by next season.
Mulder was coached by Rick Peterson in Oakland and Peterson also helped work on his mechanics this year as Mulder sat out the season while recovering from shoulder surgery. Mulder also pitched for Brewers manager Ken Macha in Oakland.
What Mulder, 32, has left at this point is anyone's guess. I do know the Brewers were interested this year when they heard Mulder might be ready to throw for scouts. Unfortunately, Mulder never progressed to that point, so that idea was put on the shelf.
In any event, Mulder would be looking for a make-good contract which wouldn't cost a lot of money. And, as we all know, the Brewers are in dire need of pitching. It certainly wouldn't hurt to give Mulder a no-risk chance to prove he can still pitch.
So, I'll monitor this and let you know if there's any chance of Mulder joining the Brewers before next season.
To be fair, I kind of like it at the right price. What that is will be interesting to see.


  1. I'm sorry if my headline and final comment was a little Mike Hunt-ish. Let me be clear I like the move if we can get him for a less then 3 million. Love it at 1.5

  2. What's with the oven timer on his chest? The pizza rolls are done fucko.

  3. I would shoot for a 1.3 and let him earn incentives.

  4. I say we give him $42 million over 4 years.
