Stearns & co has built a championship caliber team for this year. What
Separates this team from any other national league team including the dodgers is there depth. Best 40 man in league and it’s not even
Close! This team will overcome injuries because of it, And get stronger at the trade deadline. And like last year dominate sept with
Call-ups. This will be one of mlb’s super teams THIS year!
What Stearns has done in the last 41 months is simply astounding!



Depth is huge and I think it makes us the NL Central favorite. In all honesty it is the one and the only reason we won the NL Central last year. All that depth in the pitching staff gave us a ridiculous staff down the stretch because everyone stayed healthy. It was huge and in my opinion is one of the most underrated aspects of building a division winner. In a 162 game season having decent back ups instead of washed up trash is like AS level value.

The NL average for IP per game started was 5.5

The Brewers averaged 5.2 IP per game started. That's 1 out less than the NL average per game. Over the course of a full season that adds up to 54 innings extra the bullpen would have to eat. Spread out over 12 - 15 guys (which is the actual bullpen size/usage, if not more) that's not a lot of innings per guy.

There's no reason to believe the Brewers will be pitching less IP per start this year.

Yah, but are those 54 innings really spread out over 12-15 guys? No, probably not. Especially considering the Brewers often time pulled guys early to go to premium relievers. Not like guys were getting lit up and Eric Sogard was pitching. Spread that around to 5 guys or so and we are talking a workload increase over 10%.

It's fair to assume they'll be spread over 12-15 guys, just not necessarily evenly. I would actually think the best relievers wouldn't pick up much of that slack, they are going to pitch in winning games regardless. Rarely are the top guys going to come in to eat innings in the 5th-6th. It will be the Guerra/Williams/Barnes/Suter types that are more likely eat those extra 54 innings. If the Brewers are winning 5-2 and the starter is at 80+ pitches through 4 innings, yeah he might get pulled after 5 or at some point in the 5th. It's not like Hader/Jeffress/Knebel are going to be expected to nail down 4+ innings. They'll pitch 2 or 3 max, with other arms picking up the other innings. Remember, this isn't September/October baseball. We will win plenty of games without our top relievers pitching. That's especially likely considering the offense we'll be putting on the field.

It would be nice if we were winning games by four runs instead of two runs a few more times this year. It allows CC to feel more comfortable using Houser/Guerra/etc instead of all premium guys that night.

I firmly believe that we had the deepest 37 man roster in baseball in September of 2018 and it was a big reason for the number of wins that we put together right down to game number 163. Based on picking up Grandal and resigning Moustakas, our 25 man roster should be solid out of the gates in 2019. The lineup is deep. It will be important to secure enough arms with options to stretch our pitching depth beyond the 25 man limit again this year, but I also trust that Stearns will find the players we need prior to the trade deadline again. It should be a great year to be a Brewers fan.

Last year Saladino got 118 ABs, Brad Miller got 74 ABs, Sogard got 97 ABs , Jett Bandy got 64 ABs and Nate Orf got 21 ABs. 374 at bats by sub-replacement level players. Who are the worst players that will get ABs this season for the Brewers? I guess if one of our catchers goes down we will see Nottingham/Kratz. If we need a MI maybe we see Saladino again, but you would think if it's later in the season they'd call up Dubon or Hiura or they just roll with Perez and Spangenberg if they both make the team. That would be amazing if the worst hitters we send up all season are Perez, Spangenberg and Gamel.

I could see a regular lineup like this:
cf: Cain
rf: Yelich
lf: Braun
3b: Shaw
1b: Aguilar
c: Grandal
2b: Moustakas
ss: Arcia

Against a tough right-handed pitcher:
cf: Cain
rf: Yelich
lf: Braun
3b: Shaw
c: Grandal
1b: Thames
ss: Moustakas
2b: Spangenberg

Against tough lefties:
cf: Cain
rf: Yelich
lf: Braun
2b: Shaw
3b: Aguilar
1b: Grandal
c: Pina
ss: Arcia

If they want a lot of boppers:
cf: Cain
rf: Yelich
lf: Braun
2b: Shaw
3b: Aguilar
1b: Thames
c: Grandal
ss: Moustakas

I'm sure they can cook up an all-Gold Glove defense if they wanted to...

Players that I can confidently say are ahead of Agullar on the 3B depth chart:

1. Shaw
2. Moustakas
3. Perez
4. Spangenberg
5. Saladino
6 Mauricio Dubon
7. Nate Orf
8. Jake Hager
9. Lucas Erceg

Perhaps if the top four all get hurt in the same game, and they can't get any of the next five up from San Antonio in time, they may stick Aguilar out at 3B. It would be in an extreme emergency situation, though. Yes, they got cute a couple games last year, and it ended up not hurting them. That doesn't even come close to meaning its a good idea to do regularly though.

The Brewers are way into record payroll territory, and the question is whether that will hamstring them come trade season in July. Mark Attanasio: “The chips are all in now. We’ll find the money at midseason if we need to.”



Kinda hard to believe that "the chips are all in now" when the Brewers payroll is less than the Bucks. The Brewers current payroll is about $121 million while the Bucks current payroll is $126.5 million, the Bucks payroll is expected increase in the upcoming offseason. I think Mark A should still has some chips left that he's not letting people know.


Brewers at the present time are no longer a small market team in regards to current revenue. Lasts years playoff revenue & increase in attendance
Has moved us to lower mid-market. Mid-market teams can support a payroll of 150 mil+. With another double digit increase in attendance this year plus another possible playoff run not to mention a new tv deal coming....sign kimbrell and Gio to 1 or 2 year deals and lets go win a World Series!

I don't think the 2.85M fans makes up for having one of the 3 worst TV contracts in all of MLB. You also have to keep in mind the revenue per attendance. I'm sure the Mets 2.25M attendance brought in more revenue to the Mets than the Brewers 2.8M fans. But definition of mid-market is obviously subjective.

Man I am so tired of the record payroll talk. Our payroll isn't even that impressive. We haven't been seriously competing for over a half decade and financially baseball has dramatically changed. Between inflation, the national TV deal, our soon to be TV deal, and a list of other factors $120mil is not all that impressive of a number we increased to.

Grandal and Moustakas are short term deals so our future payroll is still really low. Short term we can have an unrealistic payroll because revenue has such a big spike when we know we will be good and fans are going to flood the gates. This whole $120mil number is not a big deal. They would probably push the payroll to $140mil+ on the year if a major part had no commitment past this year.

Fantastic take Mr.T Plush.
49 years & this franchise has never won a World Series.some of us fans are getting old like me,first game at county stadium June 1970. If not now when? We will draw 3+ Mil fans this year, more than double our market size. We have the best, most loyal fans in baseball, sorry St. Louis. Local tv ratings thru the roof, yes I know we also have the smallest market there too,but we will get an increase next year with that. There’s more,like mrTPlush already stated, so I’ll stop there. The city of Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin is ready to explode with this team. This team is maybe good enough as is, but if we can strengthen this team with a Kimbrell signing and potential trade deadline addition, and our payroll for the year is 155 mil then that’s a great investment. And that’s not even “all in” cause even if we don’t win the World Series this year there will be next year.

Reports (2 sources) said Kimbrel's agent is asking for 6 years and over $100M. A lot of money and a lot of years to invest in a 31 yr. old reliever. That's why he's still available.

6 years 100 mil-no. 3 years 50 mil-yes. From what I’ve read no teams offering more than 2 years. I might even go 4 years, but don’t think I’d have to. We have the money to sign him.
