Lohse's first start for Brewers today, the green he's making, and Miller Park crews readying green field
Scroll through the above photos to see images of Miller Park crew members readying the home of the Brewers for weekend exhibition games and Opening Day on Monday.
MILWAUKEE - One start does not make a full spring training, but on Thursday Kyle Lohse will get some work in while wearing a Milwaukee uniform before his regular season debut with his new team.
Lohse, who went 16-3 as a starting pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2012, will take the mound when the Brewers battle the Colorado Rockies in Arizona.
You can hear Lohse's Milwaukee debut live on Newsradio 620 WTMJ, with Bob Uecker and Joe Block calling the game at 2:55 p.m.
The Journal Sentinel reports that Lohse won't start in a regular season game until at least the fourth contest of the year - next Thursday - partially because he faces the Rockies today.
Lohse became Wisconsin's highest-paid athlete. The Business Journal looks at the list of the state's highest-paid athletes...a list that will dramatically change should the Packers ink new deals with Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews.
The Lohse signing seemed to be against what Bleacher Report said was conventional wisdom that owner Mark Attanasio was cutting back the payroll after a drop in attendance and comparatively small cable television rights fees.
Here on the home front, crews are getting Miller Park's field ready for the Friday and Saturday exhibition games against the Chicago White Sox.
Usually at night during the offseason, Miller Park's lights are off. Last night, they were on. They're putting in extra hours to make sure that the field is ready after a cold February and March.
The Brewers are finalizing their roster, and one surprise who could get the nod is Blake Lalli. Reviving The Brew asks if he's the next "Casey McGehee."
