The off-season is the best time to be a Brewer fan. Oh, the optimism! Best Case Scenario is an opportunity to dream in “what ifs” and see what happens when the Brew Crew catches all the breaks. This Brewer cocktail is made up of two parts dreaming big and one part reality. Feel free to shake your head and pour over ice.
It’s time to look at the starting rotation. The question going into 2013 was “How many young aces do the Brewers have waiting to break out?” Only one year removed from Mike Fiers‘ 2012 stretch of dominance, Wily Peralta’s coming out party and a healthy Marco Estrada, the sky was the limit. Then, everything went wrong. The writing was on the wall when the Brewers singed Kyle Lohse. Many wondered, why? Few expected him to become the shining star of the 2013 staff.
