Hall of Very Good:
We've all heard the stories of players taking out a full page ad when they leave a team. But a team taking out a full page ad to welcome a new player? That's a new one.
Just days after inking Kyle Lohse to a three-year deal worth $33 million, the Milwaukee Brewers announced the signing in grand fashion.
The ad, while clever, is interesting. I mean, are they trying to win over the fans? If so, why?!? Lohse's numbers over the past two seasons (30-11, 3.11 ERA) speak for themselves.
And if that isn't enough...just listen to Aramis Ramirez.
"He's a quality starting pitcher," the Brewers third baseman said. "I've faced him a lot. He's a real smart pitcher. He's not overpowering, but every five days he's going to give you a chance to win. He's a real good pitcher."

However, when I first heard about the signing, I immediately thought back to the Brewers signing of Jeff Suppan. In case you forgot...
Kyle Lohse finally signed with a team today, and that means he should be off your fantasy team by this weekend.Look, if he's on your waiver wire, you've got to add him. Unless you found a mega sleeper, he's going to be better than your last-round pick. And if you drafted him in a late round, waiting for the day he would sign, that's a smooth move. But I don't...
The signing of free-agent right-hander Kyle Lohse gives the Milwaukee Brewers five players who will earn a combined $61.5 million in 2014, according to Cot's Baseball Contracts.
Owner Mark Attanasio, however, said Tuesday that the team's rising payroll will not prevent the Brewers from trying to re-sign first baseman Corey Hart, a potential free agent, or pursuing other...
A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that free agent pitcher Kyle Lohse and the Milwaukee Brewers have reached agreement on a three-year contract worth $33 million.
Several media outlets reported the deal Monday. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because an official announcement was expected later in the day.

Lohse to sign with brewers

Lohse was the prize of the free agents left, but signing the veteran starter would have cost a team their first round pick. The Brewers will forfeit the #17 selection in the upcoming MLB...

Kyle Lohse has packed his bags and now he can buy his plane ticket because he finally has a destination for 2013, Milwaukee. The Brewers have reached an agreement (pending a physical) with Lohse for 3 years and $33 million.

After holding out almost all of spring training, it appears former Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse has finally landed with a new team.
On Monday Lohse reportedly signed a three-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers. News of the deal was first reported by CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.
One of the major sticking points that caused so many teams reluctance on Lohse was the fact that signing...
When word leaked out yesterday that the Brewers had come to a three-year/$33 million agreement with Kyle Lohse, a lot of Pirate fans immediately started wondering why the Pirates didn't make more of a push for Lohse given their current rotation woes. There are a lot of fairly straightforward answers to this question: Lohse is due for some regression and is much more likely to...
Could THIS be the guy who never plays until Corey Hart comes back in May?
Note: This post was being written when it was announced that the Brewers were signing Kyle Lohse. The transaction is in stark contrast to much of the intro, but I'll be goddamned if I'm going to re-write it. Just pretend this was written Friday or something. Cool?
Every mid-February when pitchers...
