The trading season is heating up and one name that keeps popping up in connection with the Brewers is Erik Bedard. The trade makes some sense. Manny Parra is pretty bad. Erik Bedard is pretty good. Erik Bedard is affordable and his contract expires after the season. (I think it would be funny if the Brewers traded for a starter with an expiring contract every year for the next 5 years. Bonus points if it was always with Cleveland.) I don't think it will take a LOT to get him and there is a clear connection between Jack Z and Doug Melvin to make this happens. Jack knows our system and what he'd be getting back better than any other team. It all seems like a good idea, but what about Erik? What does he think about all this?
I'm Erik Bedard.
How are you doing today?
I heard that you may have recently had a baby. Congratulations. I made you this card.

One of the most popular Cubs blogs online is Bleed Cubbie Blue (I've always found it annoying that it has the same initials as Brew Crew Ball and that they are both on the SBNation). One thing I like about Bleed Cubbie Blue is that they have their own semi-regular comic strip. After reading the latest one I thought to myself "self, why not us? Why can't MPD have it's own comic strip?" What I realized is there is absolutely no reason why not. So I hung some fliers at the laundromat and got myself a comic artist. We don't have quite the budget that SBNation does so the quality might not be the same, but I like to think what we lack in artistic quality we make up for in creativity.

If you haven't had the pleasure chance to see the JSOnline's user submitted Brewers fan photo gallery than you are REALLY missing out. I've invited my good friend Brewers Baby to help me comment on some of these photos.I should warn you, Brewers Baby can get a little vulgar at times. What can I say? He's a baby. He poops his pants and pees himself. Babies are stupid.
||This is a good look for someone who wants to A) look like a douchebag, B) cook crystal meth, C) date strippers and D) get his f@%kin ass whooped if I ever see him.
