Good Questions......

Tom Haudricourt of the Journal-Sentinel lists a number of great questions in today's paper. Check them out HERE.

I feel that the Brewers have a pretty solid bullpen this year in Mitch Stetter, David Riske, Carlos Villenueva, and Trevor Time. The weakest link is David Riske who peformed below average and sat out with an injury a good chunk of the season. Then again, I felt the same way last year. The only thing different is that Trevor Hoffman's stats are still solid and he didn't see a drastic decline like what Gagne was going through prior to coming to Milwaukee.

One thing I would look for is Melvin trading away someone like Angel Salome and possibly another prospect in order to get another starting pitcher. This could happen early, if it's going to happen at all. Melvin isn't an idiot and knows that the starting rotation is weak. I would like to see them package Tony Gwynn Jr. in that too.

Milwaukee may have 5 different players hit 20+ homeruns this season. Imagine that. That could surely offset the high number of runs that the starting rotation will cough up.

Can't wait until Spring!
