(Image: Allison Rhoades/MiLB.com) Even as someone who follows the Brewers pretty closely, I don’t know much about the state of the minor leagues.  Other than spring training and September call ups, I only know the names of a few players in Milwaukee’s farm system (I hear this Hunter Morris guy has a lot of upside). I am aware that the Brewers supposedly depleted their...

'Bad' loss finishes off Brewers' losing road trip
