WRJC Radio - Mauston, Juneau County, Wisconsin http://www.wrjc.com Tue, 03 Mar 2015 20:14:36 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Taylor Jungmann Making An Impact With The Milwaukee Brewers Pitching Staff http://www.wrjc.com/sports/taylor-jungmann-making-an-impact-with-the-milwaukee-brewers-pitching-staff/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/taylor-jungmann-making-an-impact-with-the-milwaukee-brewers-pitching-staff/#comments Tue, 03 Mar 2015 20:14:36 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=105306 More >]]> Milwaukee Brewers’ right-hander Taylor Jungmann is listed as the team’s Number-six starter at Spring Training.  The Brewers drafted Jungmann in the first round of the 2011 draft, as the 12th overall pick.  He could finally be ready to break into the big leagues, as a replacement should something happen to a member of Milwaukee’s five-man rotation.  Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke said Jungmann threw very well at Triple-”A” Nashville last year, and he’s player the organization likes a lot.  Jungmann went 12-and-10 a year ago in both Double-”A” and Triple-”A,” with a combined E-R-A of three-point-five-seven.  His best success came near the end of last season, when he made a minor change to his delivery and went 4-and-1 in his final eight starts.  Opponents batted just .185 during that stretch, and Jungmann struck out 51 batters in his final 46 innings with a one-point-nine-six E-R-A in that period

No Franchise Or Transition Tag For Packer Free Agents http://www.wrjc.com/sports/no-franchise-or-transition-tag-for-packer-free-agents/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/no-franchise-or-transition-tag-for-packer-free-agents/#comments Tue, 03 Mar 2015 20:12:17 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=105304 More >]]> Green Bay Packers’ receiver Randall Cobb and tackle Bryan Bulaga will start testing the free-agent waters next Tuesday, unless they get new contracts before then.  The Packers failed to put a hold on either player when the deadline came yesterday for placing franchise tags. Green Bay would have had to pay Cobb just under 13-million dollars to delay his free-agent eligibility by a year. Had the Packers used their transition tag on Cobb, he would have received just under 11-million — and the Pack would have to match any offer Cobb were to get, or lose him and get nothing.  Either way, it’s a lot more money than the nine-point-seven-million that Green Bay’s other standout receiver, Jordy Nelson, received when he signed a four-year deal last summer. The Packers will have a net salary cap of almost 151-and-a-half million dollars for this year.  Media reports say the Packers are about 32-to-33 million  under that cap, after releasing veteran linebackers A-J Hawk and Brad Jones last week.

Feingold plans to travel Wisconsin ‘extensively’ http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/feingold-plans-to-travel-wisconsin-extensively/ http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/feingold-plans-to-travel-wisconsin-extensively/#comments Tue, 03 Mar 2015 16:12:55 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=105288 More >]]> MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Democrat Russ Feingold says he plans to travel Wisconsin “extensively” after leaving his post at the State Department, but he’s not saying yet whether he will try to return to the U.S. Senate. Feingold said in a Facebook post Tuesday that he wants to listen to Wisconsinites about their concerns as he decides how he can “best further serve my country and the state I love.” Feingold’s departure this week from his special envoy post is fueling speculation that he’s preparing to announce a challenge to Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson. Johnson is up for re-election next year. He defeated Feingold in 2010. Feingold says he plans to spend part of this year teaching at Stanford University. The rest of the time he will “travel the state extensively.”
