As you've probably noticed, I'm writing a team preview series at Beyond the Boxscore. Today, it was Milwaukee's turn:
If the Brewers do in fact have an average offense and a top-quartile pitching staff, that would give them approximately twelve more wins than last year. On top of their 75-87 record, that puts them right in the hunt for the wild card. Combined with their pythagorean record of 71-91, it's not quite so optimistic. Either way, there's plenty of evidence this team will substantially improve; at the very least, there should be some meaningful baseball in Milwaukee in August and September.
