    We will all forget about Ryan Braun because of this man.

      This comment is about as horrible as the Houston Astros organization are as a whole.

      I can think of one thing he and Braun have in common…

    Milwaukee is going “ape” over this signing

    My first reaction?  I thought I followed baseball well, yet I thought Gibbons retired about 4 years ago.  I need to shape up.

    My friend was in the 2010 Triple-A Home Run Derby (as a high school senior) & had more HRs than Gibbons had

    I read all the comments in surprise that people had commented on Jay Gibbons being signed.  This guy was terrible in his prime now he’s old.

    After reading through the comments on the post, I’ve seen more comments removed than posted.  Please, it’s a minor league signing.  If he produces and gets called up fantastic.  If not, I don’t know if any of you will start burning your Nashville Sounds jerseys and say, “My life is over…I have nothing to live for…I’m going to switch allegiances and start following the Indianaplois Indians.”  Drama queens.

    Decided what? Gibbons just has more talent.

    I think you might be confused with his comment on the Astros’ lineup (“He would bat third on the Astros”), not the Brewers. Of course Braun is better than Gibbons. Merely a depth signing.

    Lol. Oh. Thanks

      What does “completly” mean?

    Year, he only played one full season there…

  15. we already signed aoki from japan and corey patterson. we don’t need another outfielder.

    Dude. He gets it. He’s even making fun of the Astros if you haven’t realized his sarscam yet. By the way, periods are your friend.

    dude, super bad news.  Patterson and Gibbons are both Orioles cast offs and are both terrible.

    He likely wouldn’t make it back to the MLB unless an injury occurs anyway..
