The Brewers release Randy Wolf on his birthday

9 Comments

Happy birthday, Randy Wolf!  Your present? Your unconditional release. Sincerely, the Milwaukee Brewers.

Not that it was undeserved. Wolf has been awful this year, posting a 5.69 ERA and 96/45 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings this season. That combined with the need to find room for the soon-to-be-activated Shaun Marcum and to clear up space for auditions of pitchers who could help the Brewers next year made this move all but inevitable.

But hey: more free time tonight to go to Chuck E. Cheese or to get a free dinner at Denny’s or something.  Beats how I spent my 36th birthday.
