Brewers Welcome Kyle Lohse

We've all heard the stories of players taking out a full page ad when they leave a team.  But a team taking out a full page ad to welcome a new player?  That's a new one.

Just days after inking Kyle Lohse to a three-year deal worth $33 million, the Milwaukee Brewers announced the signing in grand fashion.

The ad, while clever, is interesting.  I mean, are they trying to win over the fans?  If so, why?!?  Lohse's numbers over the past two seasons (30-11, 3.11 ERA) speak for themselves. 

And if that isn't enough…just listen to Aramis Ramirez.

"He's a quality starting pitcher," the Brewers third baseman said. "I've faced him a lot. He's a real smart pitcher. He's not overpowering, but every five days he's going to give you a chance to win.  He's a real good pitcher."
