Put on your GM caps..

I always enjoy these posts.  I apologize if this is a crude starting point, but rather I just wanted to start the conversation.  Also, if you have a more accurate rendition of the 2012 crew, please share.  

This all was sparked by reading a Michael Hunt article, stating there is plenty we could do with Prince's salary # falling off the books - WRONG!

My best guess is that we'll see some sort of 3 man platoon with Green, Gamel and Mcgehee at 3rd/1st.  Hopefully we can find some sort of shortstop beyond Yuni (you'll notice I assume he and Prince will not be back).  Could there be an increase in player salary?  Spend money to make money, I guess..

So without further adieu, here is my spreadsheet. Again, this is a rough spreadsheet that I used some info from:

1. http://mlbcontracts.blogspot.com/2005/01/milwaukee-brewers.html

2. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/milwaukee_brewers/index.html

3. My intuition (most notably on the salary estimates per arbitration. I also probably was a bit generous on non-arb players, I'm sure.  I always say err on the side of conservatism!)

Enjoy, be kind, go Brewers:
