Brewers quiet ahead of the non-tender deadline

Millions of dollars were thrown around MLB on Monday, but the Milwaukee Brewers were not a part of any of it.

 

The only move linked to the Brewers is not even official yet. FanSided’s Robert Murray and Brewers.com's Adam McCalvy are reporting that the Brewers were in agreement with catcher Brett Sullivan on a one-year Major League contract. If it goes official after his physical, it would give the Brewers a third catcher to replace Manny Pina. 

 

The move comes on a day when Max Scherzer reportedly signed with the New York Mets for over $40 million a year for three year and Corey Seager appears to have agreed to a 10-year, $325 million deal with the Texas Rangers.

 

Tuesday is the last day of the non-tender deadline with a lockout looming on December 1st.

Packers capture key win ahead of bye

The Green Bay Packers were able to make the plays they had to have when needed in their 36-28 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

 

The Packers struck first after recovering a Rams fumble in the first quarter thanks to a 1-yard touchdown run by Aaron Rodgers. After Mason Crosby kicked a field goal to start the second quarter, Matt Stafford connected with Van Jefferson from 76 yards out to make it 10-7. The two teams would trade field goals and touchdowns the rest of the second quarter to make it 20-17 at the break.

 

The Packers controlled the ball for much of the third quarter with A.J. Dillon catching a Rodgers pass to conclude a drive that took almost eight minutes off the clock. They would also tack on a Crosby field goal and a pick-six interception return by Rasul Douglas to put the Packers up 36-17. The Rams would score 10 points in the fourth quarter, but the Packers came up with stops when they needed to hold onto the win despite seeing Darnell Savage and Randall Cobb get injured and Rodgers limp off the field with more issues with his broken toe.

 

The Packer will have the bye week to get healthy before returning to action on December 12th for Sunday night football against the Bears.

Bucks look to sign big man after win

The Milwaukee Bucks won their game over the Indiana Pacers Sunday 118-100, but their bigger victory could come later in the day on Monday.

Four other Bucks players also reached double figures in the victory while Caris LeVert led the Pacers with 23 points. The Bucks were able to put distance between them and the Pacers in the third quarter, extending a five point halftime lead to 16.

 

Both Antetokounmpo and coach Mike Budenholzer both lamented the void left by Brook Lopez, who has been out for much of their season because of a back injury. They may just get their wish for a new big man on Monday as multiple reports are connecting the Bucks with former All-Star center Demarcus Cousins. He could be in place before the Bucks' next game on Wednesday against Charlotte.
