Some execs surprised Lawrie was available

The Shaun Marcum-Brett Lawrie was met with some surprise in the lobby of the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin resort by a handful of rival executives who didn’t know Lawrie was available. The Langley, British Columbia native is coming off a solid season at Double-A Huntsville in which he batted .285 with eight home runs, 63 RBIs and 30 stolen bases. Sixty of Lawrie’s 158 hits went for extra-bases including 16 triples.

Some scouts compare Lawrie to Jeff Kent, and Lawrie indeed could turn out to be that good. But the Brewers need starting pitching, and the fact they were willing to part with Lawrie shows just how urgent that need is.
