Milwaukee Brewers

Season 77-85 C-

For the Brewers, a team only a year away from serious contention, 2010 was a disaster. April was their worst month, and in though 3 of 6 months they had winning records, all three were only by a game. In fact, talk about nice, steady .500 ball: their records by month, starting with June: 14-13, 13-14, 14-13, 14-13. They raced to 8 below .500, and just stuck there the rest of the year.

Hitters 69.25-92.75 D-

Like most teams this year of the pitcher, the Brewers struggled to score runs. Their everyday lineup included three players (catcher Lucroy, shortstop Escobar and centerfielder Gomez [wrong CarGo]) who were below 80 OPS+. They were balanced by three players OPS+ 130 or more (Fielder, Braun and Hart), but overall they just didn’t score often enough. They WERE a young team, with no regular over 28, weighted average age just 27.6.

Starters 82.5-79.5 C+

The rotation was better, though hardly great. Gallardo had a fine season, though he is clearly not an ace for a contending team. Wolf and Bush were above average, and Narveson would be a fifth starter that the Yankees would covet. Unfortunately, none of these guys is a #1, and when your rotation is 3 #3 and a #5, plus some struggling spare parts, this is what you get.

Bullpen 70/495 C

The Brewers tried all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman at closer, but at 42 he can no longer do it (Mariano, beware!) and the young guys took over, and they were, well, ordinary. Axford, the eventual closer, was good and Loe was fine, but only one pitcher (Coffey) appeared in more than 53 games, and he was average. The only reliever with much upside who pitched well was 22-year-old Zach Braddock.
