Next came news that Almonte spent the night under supervision. "We had somebody spend the night with him last night and we didn't get a call, which is good," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Wednesday. "Any time you have a concussion, the doctors now really don't like you to spend the night (alone)."
Wait…. What? Did the supervision take place in his hotel room? Who supervised? Did this person spend the entire night watching Almonte sleep? I get the impression that Almonte was not in a hospital so I picture Almonte in a hotel room with an intern struggling to stay awake, watching him sleep. Perhaps because he was the first player to be placed on this new DL, we're just getting more details than usual.
Without Almonte, the Brewers went 1-1. On Tuesday, the Crew finally beat the Reds, 3-2. The Reds bounced back to take game three, 7-6, in ten innings.
