I always like Bickford when we first acquired him and immediately became one of our top pitching prospects. Obviously, much has changed since then and Bickford has become a bit of a forgotten man. Here's hoping he can change that and rebound from the debut he had last year.

Another deception and finesse pitcher who struggled throwing strikes against big league hitters, let’s hope he does better this time around than his cup of coffee last year.

 

With the team a MASH unit, they’re already four deep from the minors. Jordan Zimmermann will be up soon at this rate

of note . . . had any player tested positive for covid-19 yesterday ahead of zack godley's contract being selected, the brewers could have kept phil bickford on optional assignment and on the 40-man roster. the positive-testing player would've opened up a 40-man spot for godley.

Makes sense given what we saw from the bottom of their bullpen in the series. Dodgers also signed Aaron Wilkerson to a minor-league deal a couple days ago. They're competing with the Marlins for former Brewers!

Can close the book on the Will Smith trade if ‘16. Brewers ended up getting squat. Which I suppose illustrates the risk trading veterans for prospects.

 

Bickford did not impress but probably was better than Zimm

[sarcasm]They probably want him to throw batting practice to their hitters every day.[/sarcasm]

 

For real, good luck to him. The Dodgers bullpen did look fairly weak and that was against a team that was having trouble coming up with a clutch hit with RISP.

Watching LAD-STL, and Phil Bickford just looked extremely sharp in a scoreless, hitless frame out of the Dodgers pen: 11 pitches, 9 strikes, 2 punch outs. He's off to a great start with LA after a brief stint in AAA.

 

With the rough shape the Brewers bullpen is presently in, the DFA of Bickford seems like one of the more short-sighted moves of the year so far.

Was not a fan of the move with dudes like Yardley around.

 

Bickford has been excellent for the Dodgers.

Agree it was short sighted, especially since they DFA Godley right after. Should have figured out a way to option Bickford instead of the DFA.
