Rumor Mill: Is Milwaukee pulling the plug?

The Brewers may be bowing out of the NL Central race... 

They're not exactly running the white flag up the pole. But they told the Mariners, according to Fox Sports, that they are no longer free agent buyers following a cold streak that has seen them lose 16 of their last 23 games.

Milwaukee was one of several teams that had been pursing veteran Seattle starter Jarrod Washburn, who is 8-6 with a 2.71 ERA. But the Brew Crew stands 4 1/2 games back of the Cardinals in fourth place after their stumble.

I love the sight of a nicely tucked in shirt.
