Twitter Mailbag: Trading Hart, Bullpen Issues, Lucroy

“Using only players in the Brewers system, what’s your ideal 2013 25-man roster? Injuries don’t count, so you can include Hart, etc.”  – @GregSchueller The position players are rather easy. Injuries aside, the Brewers have entrenched starters at every position around the diamond, and the… [More]

Can Mike Fiers Stay a Cut Above in 2013?

In Monday’s article, I drew attention to Prediction Machine’s forecast of the Brewers’ 2013 season. After running 50,000 season simulations, the site predicted a record of 78-84 for the Crew and only gave them a 16% chance of making the playoffs. They also picked the… [More]

Pitching Logic: Destroying the NL Central

The Inimitable Marco Estrada

If Marco Estrada starts 31 games after 2012, he will sit among rare company in the last decade of MLB pitchers. A lot of Brewers fans question Estrada’s expected production in 2012, and with good reason: first and foremost, very few MLB pitchers are successful… [More]

2012 NL 100+ IP Rankings

In 2012, the National League was a robust replacement league, which made mid-level performances (and mid-IP performances) more valuable throughout the season.
