Brewers News & Notes
- With another quiet day for the Brewers in the books, all we can do for the immediate future is continue to speculate on what the Brewers could do this offseason. It shouldn't be too much longer until the action picks up, as we are only four days from the start of the Winter Meetings on December 6.
- Continuing in a series of profiles examining free agent targets, Derek looks at former White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham, and Kyle takes a look at former Nationals pitcher Doug Fister.
- The trade market is harder to predict, partially because we don't hear much of the discussions on trades, but partially because there are many more options there. One of those options that Derek chose to focus on is Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini.
