Can Ryan Braun and the Milwaukee Brewers score more runs coming up against the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves and the Miami Marlins? Will RIckie Weeks get more starts and at-bats to keep up with his hot ways, and when should we expect Jim Henderson and Aramis Ramirez to come back? We'll discuss how long they can keep the St. Louis Cardinals at bay in the NL Central tonight!
Also, we'll debate which former Wisconsin Badgers rookie from this class will have the biggest impact in the NFL, and for those undrafted, who have the best chance of making an NFL team during team tryouts.
All that and more tonight!!!
Many experts think the Green Bay Packers did well in adding Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davante Adams, and the other seven draft picks they selected. We'll give you our analysis tonight at 8 PM CT!
Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press Gazette comes on around 8:10 to discuss his thoughts on addressing the Packers' needs. Did Ted Thompson fill the needs at the positions needed like safety, tight end, and linebacker? How will Jared Abbrederis function on this team both as a receiving option and a possible return specialist? And how did the rest of the NFC North stack up?
After that, we'll discuss how the Wisconsin Badgers shaped up in the draft. Did anyone expect Dez Southward to be taken so high by the Atlanta Falcons? How will Chris Borland fit into the 3-4 of the San Francisco 49ers, and you couldn't ask for better places to go for James White and Beau Allen to go than New England and Philadelphia, respectively. That, and which Badgers that went undrafted who have the best shot at making an NFL roster.
