    This makes absolutely no sense for the Brewers.

    Why on Earth would the Brewers need three catchers?

    • twitter_wiscsportstalk 3 years ago

      They just signed Humberto Quintara too.

    The Brewers are not interested in Kelly Shoppach…

    I second that because they wouldn’t have given up on Kottreas and would had to sent down Maldonado back to Triple-A.

    • Yeah, um… Do some research before you post. They never sent Maldonado back to triple A

  5. maybe it’ll be part of a 3 team trade for MICHAEL MORSE. wishful thinking

      If Sox get get Michael Morse and only give up Shoppach … Ben will have done good

    Unless the Brewers have a deal pending involving Maldonado, it makes zero sense that they’d be interested in Shoppach.

      Unless they have some super bright Idea to put Shop at first… even if that is the plan i still don’t get it…

      • daveineg 3 years ago

        Brewers are pretty well fortified at first with Hart. They have no use for Shoppach.

        • Andy Repinski 3 years ago

          and Hunter Morris comin up soon, i don’t know why they were ever in the same sentence as Shoppach.

    Perhaps its Shop, Ross, Beckett and some cash for Morse and a prospect.

  9. Fizzzay 3 years ago

    Um, why the Brewers?

  10. If the brewers do this it wouldnt make sense because Maldonado has better numbers than Shoppach and he is probably better defensively

    Lavarnway needs to get called up. Trade Shoppach for whoever.

    I think he’s talking about the guys at Sam Adams when he mentions “Brewers.” Shoppach looks like he could roll a keg with ease.

  13. I know the red sox and yankees don’t generally make trades, but the yankees need someone that can hit a little behind the dish.

      “don’t generally” is putting it lightly. It would never happen.

    Please make this happen Rizzo. Flores and Leon are terrible.
