Brewers reach a deal with left-hander Doug Davis
The Brewers, sources confirmed Wednesday, have reached agreement to bring left-hander Doug Davis back to Milwauke.
Davis went 9-14 in 34 starts with Arizona last season, posting a 4.12 ERA.
The sides agreed on a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2011. General manager Doug Melvin tried to acquire Davis at the trade deadline last year, but was unable to work out a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Davis pitched for the Brewers from 2003-06, posting a 37-36 record.
Brewer fans are getting whinier than Cub fans. management cannot make a single move without the "faithful" coming out of the woodwork suggesting we should have, and could have, worked out some magical trade for Halliday, Johan Santana, and Cy Young's reanimated corpse. probably the same people that bitch about the summerfest lineup as soon as the first act is signed.
In related news, the length of games is expected to increase by 25 to 35 minutes every fifth day. So does this mean a three lefty rotation or does it mean Parra is bullpen bound?
I guess we don't learn from our mistakes.....Davis will be perfect for the Brewers...not quite a .500 pitcher. Here we go again.
I'm willing to withstand the attacks I will no doubt endure at the hands of Dusty, Drew Olsen and View from NY and heartily endorse the signing of double D. Glad to see an inning eater in the rotation, also, best soul patch in the Major Leagues
Sweet. Now we can rip off a new string of World Series like we did the last time he was here.
