Jun 11, 2018, 11:55 AM

The Cubs are headed into town, hovering within a half-game of the Brewers for first place after an uneven Milwaukee road trip. Brewers beat reporter Todd Rosiak chats about the team's recent struggles (and successes), with news of a trade breaking Sunday swapping Ji-Man Choi for infielder Brad Miller. What does it mean for Orlando Arcia? Todd also talks about Chase Anderson's struggles, the return of Eric Thames, Lorenzo Cain's excellence, Jonathan Villar's bounceback and a brief look back at the Brewers' 2018 draft. Then, former Brewers pitcher and current TV announcer Jerry Augustine (31:15) chats about his late friend and colleague Davey Nelson, leading UW-Milwaukee baseball, his role today and what Milwaukee baseball fandom was like in the 1970s.
