They are doing so well, and their ultimate goal is to hit liner outs to CF! Can't wait until they actually start trying!

For the first time in a long, long time I am actually excited about the entire organization, and not just hopeful we "aren't terrible" at the Major League level. [smile]

I can't wait for the first negative post in the optimism thread!

I like the offense this year. The pitching though, not so much. Hopefully it surprises me.

I am very, very excited to see what pretty much every position player can do. So much variability aside from Braun, with lots of upside. Broxton and Santana are both primed for breakouts.

Brewers do have the lowest ERA in the Cactus League and the 2nd lowest WHIP. Combined with the best offense all of baseball this spring, there's certainly reason for optimism. I'm most worried about the pen. They didn't give away games late last year. If they start doing that this year, it will affect the entire team.

Unless I'm reading it wrong, I think we already accomplished that in the very first response to the OP's post.

I'm hopeful that the defense won't totally suck this year.

If the team stays relatively healthy, I think they got a shot at .500 this year. Maybe we'll actually luck out and get more than a bag of baseballs and some batting cage replacement wheels for Garza at the deadline. Image

As an unapologetic optimist I look forward to this thread every season. The offense seems more balanced than it has in quite some time. Both in wich side of the plate they hit from and type of hitters we have. Some power, some speed, some OBP ability. I don't have any actual evidence for this but I always felt balance like that helps teams from getting into long slumps.
On the pitching side there are options despite a lack of top talent. We may not have an ace, or something even close, but we also have enough major league level talent that we won't be essentially giving up a game or two every time through the rotation.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

Or it's like autocorrect and your brat and beer will end up being a vat of beer. So either way you win.

Optimistic on all the position players being equal or better than last year at the position. Yes, Catcher too. The duo of Bandy/Pina equal the duo of Lucroy/Maldonado. As both return better offense than Maldonado to offset Lucroys better Offensive numbers. There are going to be some explosive Offense games, wouldnt doubt a 20 run game gets put up in one.

How about Nelson with 2 BB in 12 2/3 innings? 1.4 BB and 11.4 Ks /9 innings. Keep that up and we'll see some good things from him.

I just get the feeling that the Brewers are going to be a team that others teams will hate playing. Speed at the top of the order, decent power throughout and no gaping holes that will let the pitcher relax. On the other side, solid defense, decent pen and starters that can keep things close. The other teams may beat the Brewers, but the Brewers aren't just going to roll over for anybody.

What was that old promo/ad from 10-15 years ago when the team was awful, it was the manager at the time giving some speech about how "we got the fighters, we got the scrappers..."? We should just re-use that one for this squad. Then next year we can roll out the Turning Up the Heat promos again.

Barring injury though I think they will be better than most think. Seems like the type of team that should do a lot of little things right (other than dumb baserunning outs) to be in most games and win more than they should. Very similar to last year actually before the trades at the end. I suppose a key difference last year to this is the bullpen was set last year with more or less proven guys at the end of it. Then we traded them all so kind of starting fresh this year.
