08.26.2019: Could the Brewers have handled the near no-hitter differently? Plus a chat with Jordan Lyles

Aug 26, 2019, 10:00 AM

A huge stretch awaits the Brewers, a farewell to Jhoulys Chacin, and pondering Brewers no-hitters (or lack thereof), plus a chat with Jordan Lyles.

Brewers beat reporter Tom Haudricourt joins host JR Radcliffe to discuss the state of the Brewers on the cusp of a monster stretch against the Cardinals and Cubs. He offers a brief post-mortem on Jhoulys Chacin's Brewers tenure after he was designated for assignment and looks at options for the 2020 rotation. Then, the guys look back at Friday's near no-hitter; could Josh Hader have been used in the seventh? How much juice do we still have for no-hitters, especially as they become more of the combined variety? True story: Tom left his parents in the car of the stadium parking lot in Baltimore so he could finish writing about Juan Nieves' no-hitter in 1987. 

Then, JR chats with Jordan Lyles himself, the author of six no-hit innings Friday. He talks about his desire to play football for Steve Spurrier, his role in a zany 2018 game and everyone in his family given "J" names ... until now.
