I generally enjoy bringing you some of my own commentary in these Rundowns, but burning the candle at both ends has got me feeling like 10 pounds of the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2017 outlook in a 5-pound bag. As such, this edition is going to fall more under the heading of content curation. Maybe that’s better, who knows.
From red-assed whine to red, red wine
Remember when the Cubs’ backup catcher expressed frustration with his role in the immediate wake of the team’s World Series parade? That was awesome. And that wasn’t the first time Miguel Montero had been critical of Joe Maddon, either.
Given the diminution of Miggy’s skills and the ascension of Willson Contreras, it’s obvious that the elder statesman is looking at even less playing time this season. In many situations, that would be a sure marker of potential clubhouse cancer. But not on this team.
Maddon and Montero sat down to dinner, with ol’ Hank White tagging along to provide a stoic presence of neutrality. They were able to clear the air and alleviate any tension, imagined or otherwise, which should really help Miggy to move forward with a clear conscience.
