It's been a while since I've lit the In-Between Hops vigil. Ned Yost was the last time I believe. But now seems like an appropriate time to light it again. With the other options available to them, I do not see how the Brewers can justify keeping Jeff Suppan on the team.
It's sad in a way because his baseball eulogy will read well. He is, by every indication, an outstanding individual who gives back to his community. Perhaps there is a future for him on a coaching staff, in a broadcast booth, or front office. Or perhaps too, the $60 million he earned as a player - 70% of which came from the Brewers, the team to which he gave about 10% of his production - will allow him to carry on comfortably from here. But his career as a baseball player is in its waning days.
