Another edition of the BCB Mailbag!
We are now two weeks into the regular season, and our beloved Menomonee Valley Nine is off to a nice start so far. They are 8-5 through 13 games and sit in first place in the NL Central. Christian Yelich continues to be amazing, Yasmani Grandal is well on his way to proving he’s worth every penny of his free agent deal, and Josh Hader has yet to allow a run. But this team isn’t without some glaring cracks, especially on the pitching side. The rotation’s three young guns all have ERAs over 6.00. Besides Hader and Our Hero Junior Guerra, the no one in the bullpen has an ERA below 3.00. Two anchors of last year’s lineup, Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar, are off to icy cold starts. So, what questions do you have about this team, their start, and the path forward?
Looking forward to seeing what y’all come up with this week!
