Jerry Augustine from FS Wisconsin joined the Mike Heller Show today to talk about the sudden surge of the Brewers success.
On Brewers Pitching success:
I saw it before the All-Star break. I saw guys starting to go out there and have a little more confidence. They are commanding the strike zones, getting strikes, and getting ahead of hitters. When you do that, good things happen. What can you say about Wily Peralta. He has just been fantastic his past five starts.
On Brewers Pitchers knowing possibility of getting traded:
I think it’s an emotional time. You get involved with a group of guys and go to battle with them. I think it’s something when your name is mentioned it becomes something you always think about. Do they distract them? You never know. The bullpen has some quality pitches that will be heavily looked at. I would be skeptical of the idea of them trading starting pitching though.
On Brewers goals:
My number one goal of the whole season has always been health. I think they have to think about that. It would be really great if they could get Aramis back and get him healthy. Also it would be great if they could get Ryan Braun back on a consistent basis where he feels good and he’s swinging the bat good. You want to get as healthy as you can because they only way you can find out what team you have and what direction your team needs is to have health.
