Gallardo's career was completely changed when he tore his ACL in 2008. He was never the same guy, never found that release point again.

The Brewers had some talented arms never amount to anything at the MLB level due to injury (Rogers, Gold, etc), which many organizations do - it's not having any organizational depth of pitching talent that was being developed properly that has hamstrung the Brewers through most of their existence.



Very few organizations have prolonged success developing pitchers. And very few ex-Brewer pitchers have gone on to stellar careers.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

As an organization, they need to bring in ace-caliber pitching talent via the draft at least once every 3 years - that just hasn't happened enough.


There isn't even really 1 ace per team at the major league level, so to think that any team could draft an ace every 3 years seems to be a stretch. If you just mean potential to be an ace, one could argue that the brewers have drafted at least one every 3 years or more who had the potential, but have just not actually hit on any since Ben Sheets due to various factors already discussed in this thread.
