Been a Hell of a Ride…

This happened on Saturday: The Brewers DFA’d Lorenzo Cain after ten years in the League.

“A kid from Madison County, [Fla.], that just showed up and didn’t have a glove or a bat, cleats, any of that,” said Cain, who didn’t play baseball until he was in the 10th grade. “I had to borrow everything from the very beginning. To say that I’ve played 10-plus years in The Show, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

“It’s been a great ride for me, a fun ride. I put a lot of work in. I put this body through a lot through the years. At the same time, I think the body is ready to rest a little bit, for sure.”


This really stings. Lorenzo Cain was hands down my favorite member of the Brew Crew, because of the picture above. He robbed a number of players of extra bases and home runs; seeing him in the outfield was amazing. He was an absolute joy to watch.

But he can’t keep up forever. That’s been fairly obvious. It doesn’t mean that I have to like it. Because I don’t. Like I said, this one seriously stings.

I wish him the best of luck in whatever his future endeavors may be. I hope he drops by Brewers On Deck in the future. I hope he has a spot on the Wall of Honor in American Family Field and he gets a place in the Brewers Hall of Fame.

I honestly hope he makes it into Cooperstown. That would make me very happy. In fact, I would probably cry a little. But I wish him nothing but the best. Thanks for one helluva ride, LoCain. It’s been an absolute blast. ❤

Let’s go out with a bang

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
