Manny's Left Arm

As Parra continues to pitch well, his innings count rises. It's currently at 132. Not counting possible playoff innings, he's is on pace for 185. For comparison, he only pitched 131 in 2007, and the most innings he's ever thrown was 139 back in 2003 in beautiful Beloit.

Worried about possible fatigue as he approaches a whopping 50 more innings than his previous max? Should they "save" some innings for September/October? Maybe skip a couple starts? Limit him to 5 innings/start?

May as well give him a start or two off. Ginger kid did alright as a started, IMHO.

He should be skipped a start or two when Ned re-adjusts the rotation soon to get CC and Sheets pitching against the Cards/Cubs.

Once the Brewers have clinched a playoff berth, then we can skip him in the rotation.

So maybe he can miss 1 start the last week of the season...

Woz - is absolutely correct, do not sit him until we are safely in the playoffs.

Can someone text or e-mail, Jim & Bob and tell them to turn down the crowd noise! Those kids are getting annoying!

When did Nix get so BIG? He's ripped!

Does anyone think there's anything Hall can do to get out of the doghouse? I have a feeling he won't be a Brewer next year (probably traded for a low-A arm). I honestly still like him... Maybe I shouldn't, but I do.

Who's the AAA 3rd baseman?
