This makes absolutely no sense for the Brewers.

Why on Earth would the Brewers need three catchers?

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

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…

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

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.

Um, why the Brewers?

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

Shoppach is great defensively, possibly the best in AL East

So is Maldonado he has a great arm and he lets nothing get by him

Now its saying the brewers aren’t interested

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.

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.
