My Sports Rumors:
People have though that Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo would be one of biggest names available at the trade deadline. A guy that every contender came calling about but thanks to salary and struggles that interest is dwindling. Teams are now asking about Kyle Lohse who has easily been performing at a level well above his three year, $33 million contract.
One rival general manager who talked to the Brewers recently posed this question of Brewers GM Doug Melvin: “How about Kyle Lohse instead of Yovani Gallardo?”
As for the answer that seems very much up in the air, that GM was told no on Lohse, but a Brewers-connected person said of Lohse: “We do not have a mandate to move dollars. It has to be a prospect package that works for us — an overpay-type deal.”
That sounds like a Lohse trade is more of a possibility. But a second G.M. also said it was suggested to him Milwaukee may hold Lohse, at least until the winter.
Owner Mark Attanasio’s decision to go for Lohse surely look...
BEST OF MAXIM
MILWAUKEE -- For the vast majority of his first six seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers, Yovani Gallardo has been a model of consistency.
The only pattern Gallardo has followed this season has been one of inconsistency. After another shaky start in Thursday afternoon's 10-8 loss to San Diego, Gallardo was puzzled as to why he can't put things together.
Coming off an outing...
With the week the Milwaukee Brewers have been through, salvaging a series split with the San Diego Padres would mean a lot.

Brewers slugger Ryan Braun as we all know is currently serving a 65-game suspension for his role in the Biogenesis scandal and that suspension came after Braun's stern and repeated denials of ever using PEDs. All of this has caused not-insubstantial levels of outrage among baseball observers and at least one hometown Brewers fan is none too pleased with Braun's deceptions...

Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura has left the Brewers' game against the Rockies in the sixth inning, developing tightness in his right forearm two innings after he swung into a pitch that hit him in the same area.

Wily Peralta was pitching so well in July it was easy to forget he was still a rookie.
The rookie struggles returned to the right-hander Friday night, as Peralta allowed five earned runs on seven hits and three walks in just 3 23 innings in Milwaukee's 8-3 loss in Colorado.
Colorado scored three unearned runs off Peralta, and the Rockies certainly didn't hit the ball hard...
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has let an entire fan base down in 2013, effectively erasing any remaining hope the team may have had of making the playoffs after admitting to using performance-enhancing drugs and accepting a suspension for the rest of the season. But despite losing an endorsement deal and $3.8 million in salary, [...]

The pitchers that have been garnering most of the medias attention are John Axford and Mike Gonzalez, but teams have shown interest in starters Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse, according to reports. While teams are interested, are the Brewers willing to deal them?
According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Milwaukee...
Zack Greinke was a former teammate of Ryan Braun during his time in Milwaukee. Now a pitcher on the Los Angeles Dodgers there was no shortage of slams directed at the Brewers outfielder who has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season.

“The main thing is, yeah, he lied to us,” Greinke...
