Merry Christianmas and Happy LoCainukkah Greg Luzinski Jersey , everyone."It’s only been a year, so it might seem a little hyperbolic to some, but happy anniversary of one of the most important dates in Milwaukee Brewers franchise history.One year ago today, the Brewers landed Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain within hours of eachother, effectively ending their rebuild and changing the landscape of the National League.In typical David Stearns fashion, both moves virtually came out of nowhere.While the Cain rumor was around for a few weeks before he ultimately signed, first surfacing on January 4th, the initial reports were still met with skepticism. The Brewers reportedly talked about Cain interally a lot last winter, but the reports never really surfaced until January simply because it, well, didn’t make sense. Those initial rumors were paired with the caveat of “if they trade Domingo Santana and/or Keon Broxton first,” but when neither player was traded, it felt like the rumors died down as the weeks went on.The Yelich deal came together with even less warning, with the first report of the Brewers making an offer coming just two days before the trade was actually completed. When it happened, the price seemed steep on the surface -- at least compared to what the Marlins had settled for in their other firesale trades, and considering Stearns had spent a year refusing to trade Lewis Brinson -- but the trade came down to this: the Brewers dealt away a few bats that could become Christian Yelich in 3 to 5 years for the Actual Christian Yelich http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey , who they would have for 5 years on an extremely team-friendly contract.A couple hours later, Cain officially signed and the perception of the Brewers completely changed in less than a day.While there were still plenty of doubts about their viability as a contender -- they clearly needed to add Lance Lynn or Alex Cobb if they had any hope of making the playoffs -- it was still pretty clear at the time that it was one of the biggest single days the franchise had seen, up there with the trade for Zack Greinke in terms of kicking open the door to the playoff race and cashing in on its prospect capital.What moved it into “Best Day Ever” territory was how it played out -- Yelich made the leap from Very Good to Superstar in a single year (a single half, really), and Cain was a borderline MVP candidate himself on the strength of his defense and a late-career evolution in his plate discipline that made him a perfect complement to Yelich in the lineup. And unlike that trade heading into the 2011 season, the moves made on January 25th, 2018 weren’t for a one-time shot. It was just the first of many chances to return to the Fall Classic.There were other momentous days during the rebuilding process -- the Carlos Gomez trade with the New York Mets falling through is likely the second-biggest, followed by the actual trade with Houston that brought back Josh Hader, Domingo Santana, Brett Phillips and Adrian Houser and the Jonathan Lucroy deal that brough back Brinson -- but ultimately January 25th, 2018 made one of the best teams in Brewers history possible and brought the team within one game of its first World Series in 36 years (and, as announced this week, a promotion for Stearns).There’s still plenty of time to add to the lore of that day, with Yelich just reaching his prime while being signed for four more seasons and Cain possibly having another quality season or two left in him over the next four for which he’s signed. But even if the Brewers don’t get that close to a World Series berth again during either player’s remaining tenure, the value and memories provided in 2018 make both deals worth it. If they do, we’ll have no doubt as to what the best day Stearns ever had on the job was. MILWAUKEE — Even though he wasn’t able to work out a deal for Reds right-hander Matt Harvey Mitch Williams Jersey , Milwaukee Brewers general manager David Stearns is still confident in his team’s starting pitchers as the Brewers try to lock down their first playoff berth since 2011.“This is a group that has pitched competitively throughout the vast majority of the season and we think they will continue to do so,” said Stearns, who wouldn’t directly confirm the many reports saying Milwaukee had claimed Harvey off waivers.Milwaukee’s starters got off to a rough start this month, posting a 5.58 ERA through the first 15 games of August. They’ve turned it around of late, recording quality starts in four of the last five games — a streak that could reach five of six if right-hander Jhoulys Chacin stays true to his recent form Saturday when he starts game two of the Brewers’ three-game set with the Pirates at Miller Park.Article continues below ...Chacin (13-4, 3.58 ERA) has been one of the Brewers’ more reliable players this season, as well as one of the better pitchers in the National League — especially over the last month. Since getting knocked around early in a 21-5 rout at Los Angeles to open August, he is 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA over his last three starts, holding opposing batters to a .191 batting average. He has also cleared at least six innings in each of those three outings. The Brewers would benefit greatly from another deep outing by Chacin Saturday after playing 15 innings Friday night but also because their bullpen has yet to fully recover from a rash of injuries during the second half and the season-long struggles of Corey Knebel. An All-Star a year ago, Knebel has been unable to command his stuff consistently this season, especially his curveball, resulting in a 5.09 ERA. Brewers manager Craig Counsell tried serval options to get him back on track before finally moving him to lower-leverage situations. When that didn’t work, the Brewers made a more drastic move, optioning Knebel to Triple-A Colorado Springs where he could work in a lower-pressure environment.“He wants to pitch better, so we’re trying to figure out a way to help him pitch better,” Counsell said. “This is the track he’ll be on.”Joakim Soria could see some of the ninth-inning work while Knebel gets straightened out. He threw a scoreless eighth inning Friday after coming off the disabled list and had 16 saves this season for the White Sox before he was acquired by the Brewers ahead of the deadline.“He didn’t miss a lot of time with the injury Dave Cash Jersey , so we feel like we can put him right back into some bigger spots for us,” Counsell said.The Pirates will need some bullpen help, too, Saturday. Manager Clint Hurdle’s relief corps covered 11 innings, with closer Felipe Vasquez tossing two scoreless frames and Stephen Brault adding four more before Clay Holmes gave up three runs in the 15th.Hurdle was already working somewhat shorthanded because Kyle Crick was unavailable.“Crick’s back flared up on him the last game he pitched at home,” Hurdle said. “We talked to him earlier in the day and he felt it so we wanted to stay away from him.”Like Chacin, Pittsburgh’s Saturday starter, Jameson Tallion, has been working deep into games lately, getting through at least six innings in seven of his last eight starts.Taillon (9-9, 3.58 ERA) has faced Milwaukee three times this season, allowing five earned runs while striking out 18 over 16 innings and going 1-1 with a 2.81 ERA in those three games. Taillon is 2-4 with a 3.42 ERA in nine career starts against the Brewers.Chacin is 2-4 with a 4.03 ERA in nine career starts against the Pirates, and he is 0-1 with a 1.53 ERA in three starts against them this season.
