Milwaukee lost 116-105 to Boston on Wednesday to fall to 2-2 on the season. Orlando is also 2-2 on the year, winning against the Knicks on Wednesday night 95-83 to snap a two-game skid. Tipoff time tonight is 6 pm – no broadcast on KFIZ because of high school football.
A solid 2019 season means this might be the time for catcher Yasmani Grandal to cash in. An M-L-B Network report says Grandal has declined his 2020 option with the Milwaukee Brewers. The 30-year-old is coming off a season of 28 home runs, 77 runs batted in and some solid defensive play. The Mets offered him four years and 60-million dollars last off-season, but that wasn’t enough. The online report suggests Cincinnati as a logical destination for Grandal.
