This week we all learned about Zack Greinke's basketball related injury that will keep him out for 4-6 weeks and delay his Brewers debut by a few weeks. It isn't the end of the world, but at the same it's not exactly what we had in mind for our new superstar and it sucks. What sucks even more is that Zack Greinke isn't the only Milwaukee Brewer currently experiencing an injury. In fact, there are quite a few of them and it's getting to the point where it's hard to keep up with all of them. That's why we decided to do the Milwaukee Brewers Universe a favor and create a comprehensive guide to all the aches and pains currently ailing the home town team. What can we say? We aim to please.

    Is Axford back to solid bowel movements?

    I wonder if it’ll be a race between Parra or Grienke getting of the DL first will look like. People screaming for Parra to be on the 15-day DL and extra round to “fully heal” so he won’t get a chance at a spot start XD.

    Though if Parra finally figures out how to pitch to contact and trust his defense rather than freak out every time he lets two runners get on in an inning, we’d not think that way. He came up in ’07 right?

    Lol, I like the walker part. Madtown people need to chill and take it out on the batting cages. More fun too :P

    I wonder what the Earthquake’s going to do for the NPB season though, Sendai has one of the stronger teams based there…

    Hey Anonymous @ 11:16am leave the Walker humor to our leader. People in Madtown should dial it up a notch and use Walker’s nads as batting practice balls.
