Brewers-Getting Greinke

Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Zack Greinke deal is going over well with Brewers fans:

Rick Schlesinger, the team’s executive vice president for business operations, said Tuesday that between Sunday afternoon and Monday night the team sold 1,100 new season-ticket packages. “Those are brand new account holders whom I’m convinced wouldn’t be buying if not for the current Greinke deal,” Schlesinger said.

He reports that ticket renewals have come at a higher-than-expected rate as well.

This reminds me of last year when there was so much hype around the Seattle Mariners. Except that the Brewers have actually hired a guy who most people think will be an effective manager, have brought in good players and the slugger who will unexpectedly stay with the team next season can still slug. And stay awake.

    Nice hairdo. He’s kind of got the John Elway thing going there….

    Wow, and he doesn’t even look stressed out in the least bit having all those microphones in his face either… hmm? Go figure NYC.

      I see 4 microphones. That might be a lot by Philly fan standards but by NY Yankee standards that wouldn’t even qualify as an interview. Obviously you are still smarting from the whooping the Yankees gave your Phillies in 2009.

        yea you guys do BIG THINGS up in NY, for example Eli Mannings Post Game Press Conference having only ONE whole reporter cover it on Sunday right??

        To xxakshunxx – My post was about the NY Yankees, not football or the Giants Eli Manning. Obviously you have trouble distinguishing the difference.

        yea you must be right.. a sports athlete talking to reporters in front of microphones and another sports athlete talking to other reporters in front of microphone…. how in the world could you ever compare those two things??

      • uyf1950 - Dec 23, 2010 at 8:58 AM

        Have it your way. You’ve obviously spent a lot of time in NY and following the Yankees from your location in what KC or Milwaukee to know that there is very little difference in the media of the cities. I’ll bet during this holiday season you still believe in Santa Claus, we don’t want you to forget to leave the cookies and milk out for him Friday night.

    Crazy! I’m a big Royals fan, and seen lots of pics of Zack. But this is the first time I thought he looked like Michael Shannon. That’s a really, really bad picture.
