Adding Wong and getting Cain back will be a huge defensive boost that is going to pay dividends on the entire pitching staff! Also, getting Cain back on the field will add an energy and clubhouse presence that was sorely missed last year!

Who said anything about Cain returning yet? Did he jump the line and get vaccinated? Seems pretty presumptuous to assume Cain will be around this year. It would shock me, actually, if he is anywhere near Arizona in the next month.
Great signing today.... hope it lengthens the lineup!

Are they allowing players to opt out this year? I will be optimistic (like the thread title) and say that no one will opt out!

Ha, well that was a super depressing way to respond to a message in the optimism thread! I certainly am hopeful that we get a full year of Cain back this year!

Haudricourt article announcing Wong in JS implies Cain is in for 2021.

This season’s Brewers team has a chance to be one of their best ever in terms of run prevention (pitching and defense), likely also buoyed by the NL Central being expected to have mostly below average offensive lineups.

It really does make you wonder if that's the current thought process of the FO- we know there are issues with the offense, but if you can focus on only needing 3-4 runs each night, you won't NEED to score 5-7. Makes sense, really.

Stearns said he has talked to Cain and fully expects him to play this season.

Fun possibility: Brewers sign Turner causing a chain reaction of other 3rd basemen needing teams (preferably AL teams) to trade for Bryant and Suarez.

The Brewers are right there with the Cardinals in terms of Projected Team WAR according to Fangraphs. I think we have a real shot to win the division, especially if we add a 3b and/or starting pitcher

Narvaez will reboud.
Pina will be fine. or Nottingham or one of the other 16 catchers on the roster does well.
Hiura will hit better and adapt to 1B.
Wong will continue to be one of the best 2Bs in baseball.
Arcia will benefit massively from having one of the best 2Bs in baseball next to him. And hit better.
Urias will blossom as a hitter and be one of the premiere defensive 3B in baseball.
Garcia will rebound and hit 20+HR and .270+
Cain will be a Gold Glove level CF and hit .280+
Yelich will be an MVP candidate
Woodruff and Burnes will continue to kick butt.
Lindblom and Houser will develop into solid mid rotation arms
We find a 5th and 6h starter amongst are players.
The morass of bullpen arms we've assembled will be a formidable arsenal of weapons against the tyranny of Cardinals and Cubs and Yankees and Padres and Dodgers - and all the other heathens.

Go Brewers!!!

So excited for 2021.

I'm thinking that moving Huira to 1B will relieve some pressure on him defensively, thus allowing his offensive skills to flourish.
