Let's hope he gets it this time!

You know we all have that one friend that hasn't quite grown up yet. He/She could still be reliving those college frat parties that just never seemed to end. You want to reach out and be like "come on bud...we are 30 now...time to relax a bit", however they just keep grinding and partying. We wait by patiently hoping they someday get it.

Well hopefully Jeremy Jeffress is on the right road to recovery. Mr. Jeffress is a power arm prospect in the Brewer farm system who seemed to like recreational drugs more than baseball. Jeffress had to serve a 100 game suspension for his 4th positive drug test, however he seems to be back. Living in Oshkosh and being very close to Time Warner Cable Field in Appleton, Wisconsin where the Brewers minor league affiliate the T-Rats play, I got a chance to really see this kid play. And man he can throw heat.

Mr. Jeffress was promoted to High A Brevard County today and placed on the 40 man roster again after pitching in 5 games, giving up no hits and only walking 3, while striking out 14. These kids couldn't touch the former 2006 1st rounder! Impressive stuff!

Hopefully Brewer nation will wrap our arms around him, let him know we are behind him and watch him mature not only into a great player, but more importantly, a better man! Brewer fans...get your Jeffress cards now! :)
