Jeff SuppanTom Haudricort of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Brewers have released Jeff Suppan , cutting ties with the 35-year-old right-hander even though it will cost more than $10 million to do so.

Suppan was in the final year of a four-year, $42 million contract. In 110 games with the Brewers, Suppan was 29-36 with a 5.08 ERA.

Replacing Suppan on the Brewers' roster is reliever Chris Smith , the closer at Triple-A Nashville.

Imagine if the Brewers didnt  have $14 million in Suppan and $5 million in Hoffman.  Thats a lot of money they could have spent on an ace.  Oswalt would sure look good on the Crew right now.

I'm just glad I won't have to turn the TV off and walk away every time the Brewers put him in.  I haven't watched him pitch once since they moved him to the pen. (Thank god he never pitched a game I was at!)

Is it just me or does it seem like the guys we just brought up like Axeford or Braddock have been pitching circles around our so called "veteran" guys we brought in this year? (Seriously where are you LaTroy).  I just feel optimistic when I see them come in, which hasn't really happened for me with the 'pen since last year's version of Trevor Time.

Also, Kudos to Manny Para for LAst nights game.  With the exception of losing it from fatigue at the end, he pitched a hell of a game.  If he could pitch like that consistantly he could really be Gallardo's number 2 in years to come!

Suppan pitched great in the World Series with the Cardinals got a great over priced contract. Wow he was terrible with the brewers.
