Brett Lawrie Could Make for An Awesome Comeback Story
You’ve heard the name, Brett Lawrie. Milwaukee Brewers drafted him in the first round years ago, and he played third base at the time. Lawrie moved through the minor leagues, and it seemed like he would be in the big leagues in no time. Before he could get there, Milwaukee traded Lawrie to Toronto for Shaun Marcum, an integral part of the 2011 Milwaukee Brewers. Lawrie made it to the big leagues in Toronto, but things didn’t pan out for him. Lawrie went to four teams in seven years and flamed out. Now, the comeback story will start again with the Brewers. Part of me is rooting for it if Lawrie changed his way as a human being.

Life has been a little weird for me this past couple years. To be honest it’s been lonely. I worked my whole life to achieve my dreams. I’ve shared a locker room with 25+ men ever since I’ve been 19 years old & I blinked and it all disappeared. I’ve put more effort into finding the people I thought knew what was best for me than any of you could understand . It wasn’t until about a week & a half ago I received a call from my agent & shortly into that call I got word that something could be “Brewing”. Yesterday I got the best news of my life & I am beyond excited to share with you that I am signing with the “Milwaukee Brewers”. Im so ecstatic for this opportunity of a lifetime and I cannot thank the Brewers enough for believing in ME when no 1 else would. Remember …. “ You, Me or Nobody is gonna hit as hard as LIFE” – R.B
Lawrie is a noted asshole. People didn’t like him much in Oakland, Toronto or Chicago. It appears judging by his Instagram and comments he made recently, that he had a retrospective on his life and wants to turn things around. Can people not be assholes later in life? I think so. It’s called maturity. He knows the opportunity is simply a deal to work with the team in Spring without any real promises. For him to fuck that up being a jerk would be on brand and show nothing has changed for him. If he does figure out, Lawrie is a solid hitter with good pop that could help Milwaukee.
