When is it time to say, "enough is enough" after seeing a pitcher struggle each time he takes the mound? When do you admit you made a mistake on a bad contract and cut bait with a player? The time is now for the Brewers to cut bait with starting pitcher Jeff Suppan.
Suppan has a 7.28 ERA after giving up five runs in the past two games. He has been brutal as a starter and as a reliever. There is no room for Suppan on the roster and the Brewers just called up Kameron Loe from Triple A.
Suppan had a decent first year with the Brewers in 2007 when he won twelve games, but has been awful since then. He was signed to be a big addition to a struggling pitching staff in 2007, but never lived up to his four-year $42 million contract.
MLB Trade Rumors.com had an interesting idea in what the Mets should do with their struggling highly paid starter Oliver Perez. Their possible idea was for the Brewers to trade Suppan to the Mets for Perez, and reunite Perez with former pitching coach Pick Peterson. This would be funny since the Mets want Perez out of town and Suppan has worn out his welcome in Milwaukee.
We will see what the Brewers do with Suppan but it doesn't look good for him. If he can't pitch well in the bullpen then what purpose does he serve on the team? Is he a highly paid cheerleader? The end is near for Suppan and it will be interesting to see if he gets picked up by another team this year or the rest of his career.
