Peralta Returns!

Last night, Brewers righty Wily Peralta returned in what might have been the “most” Peralta start one could have expected. First and foremost, the homegrown youngster basically shelved his change up, working instead with his solid blend of fastballs and sliders. Along with the trademark… [More]

Tuesday Morning Coffee: SP, Lucroy, Aramis, Trade Season
