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.
We have finally reached the relievers. This has been the most volatile area the past years. In 2011, the John Axford and Francisco Rodriguez combo was a big part of their success. In 2012, not so much with John Axford; a year of meltdowns, blown saves, and then once again finding his rhythm. What would 2013 bring? John Axford is no longer on the team, enough said. If anyone is going to create a documentary on this I suggest “Anti-Stress Relief: The John Axford Files.”
