Keith Law Chat 5/13/10

Our favorite writer Keith Law had another one of his entertaining and informative baseball chats today. Here were the Brewers related questions/answers. Including one from yours truly!

Jason (Germantown, WI)

Klaw, which pitcher in the Brewers system has the highest ceiling? Eric Arnett, Jake Odorizzi or Wily Peralta?

(1:42 PM)


Andrew (Milwaukee)

Zach Braddock of the AAA Brewers taking over the setup-role for the Brewers? Thoughts? This guy is the Daniel Bard (2K/inn) of the NL.

(1:53 PM)

Yes. He might be their long-term closer answer. By the way, any time you can pay a closer $8 million to post a 12 ERA, you have to do it, right?

It does not surprise me that Law picked Peralta over Arnett and Odorizzi. He has been pretty high on Peralta for some time now. I know he has mentioned him in previous chats and also in this blog. Says Peralta is developing a really good change to go with his fastball and slider. Wily is off to another good start this season at A+ Brevard County. I would not be surprised if he was in Huntsville before seasons end.

Like Law said, Braddock certainly seems to be the Brewers future closer. And of course you gotta love the snark Law delivers with the rip on the Brewers paying Hoffman $8 mill this season with very poor results thus far.
