It’s kind of weird that all of these Rickey Keeton cards in a Brewers uniform exist. He was traded by the Brewers to the Astros on October 23, 1981 for Pete Ladd.
Cleveland’s career was done after the 1981 season, but we can still admire this bearded, bespectacled action shot.
Remember the name? The last time the Brewers saw Parrott was May 6 of last season when he was at the tail end of an 18-game losing streak. “Tail end” meaning it ended that day when the Mariners crushed the Brewers 21-1. [Read more…] about Brewers Trade for Parrott
According to a story from the AP (and reported by The Milwaukee Journal), the Brewers get 6-1 odds to win the American League pennant and advance to the World Series this season, according to Harrah’s Reno-Tahoe Race Book. [Read more…] about Brewers Given 6-1 Odds to Make World Series
Sun City, Ariz. — Charlie Moore‘s happy, and that’s a ray of sunshine on the Brewers’ spring. Moore previously demanded a trade to a team willing to make him a starting catcher, but dropped that request according to a report from Tom Flaherty of The Milwaukee Journal.
So why did Moore change his tune? He and general manager Harry Dalton met Sunday in an effort to clear the air. Dalton assured Moore that he would be given a shot at an outfield spot, most likely right field. [Read more…] about Moore Drops Trade Request
MILWAUKEE — The Brewers announced today that they gave right handed pitcher Reggie Cleveland his outright release. Cleveland is now free to sign with any club.
Acquired from the Texas Rangers prior to the 1979 season, the 33-year-old Cleveland spent three seasons with the Brewers. Used mainly as a relief pitcher, the hurler from Saskachewan had possibly his finest season in 1980 when he also made 13 starts. He finished that season with an 11-9 record and 3.73 ERA in 154 1/3 innings pitched.
His other two seasons in Milwaukee, however, were not so productive. Cleveland’s 1980 season was a pleasant surprise given a disastrous 1979 debut when he went 1-5 with a 6.71 ERA. He fell out of favor during the 1981 season, as Cleveland struggled to a 2-3 record and 5.15 ERA in 64 2/3 relief innings.
Reggie Cleveland started his career with the St. Louis Cardinals as a 21-year-old in 1969 and also spent time with Boston before moving on to the Rangers. Cleveland has a career 105-106 record and 4.01 ERA.
Those close to Cleveland speculate that he will choose to retire rather than sign to pitch another year.
