I'm actually wondering about the Brewers, and I don't know why.

I was strolling around the Transaction Guy and came across this. The Brewers re-upped Scott Podsednik, and wondered: What does this mean for Dave Krynzel? He's out for 8-12 weeks with a foot fracture, but that shouldn't push his ETA past mid-2005. He's projected as a leadoff hitting CF. Do the Brewers think he isn't gonna make it?

As an actual Brewers fan, I think it's great that we have Podsednik re-upped, and not just because I like him personally. What if Krynzel's foot injury is a lingering problem? What if he's a major-league bust? With Pods around, we can afford to ease Krynzel in slowly, which would be a refreshing change.

And if Krynzel burns up the league immediately, Podsednik can easily be dealt. He's making only $1.9 million in the last year of the deal ('06), which is a bargain for a player with his stats. Should we need to deal Scott, it shouldn't be a problem.

Giving $5 million a year to the decomposing corpse of Marquis Grissom was a stupid idea. This is a smart one.

On the second thought, I agree with you. It's simple really: the Brewers need all the good cheap players they can get, regardless of position.
