Previewing the Milwaukee Brewers 2012 starting line-up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over the last decade or so, the Milwaukee Brewers have been one of the best offensive teams in the MLB. With that said, they’ve also been a team on the rise which finally culminated with the squad capturing their division title for the first time in twenty five years last season.

Even though the team has lost slugger Prince Fielder, they remain in the hitter-friendly Miller Park and covet the NL’s reigning MVP in Ryan Braun.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the Brewers’ projected starting line-up in 2012.

Milwaukee Brewers Attempt to Weather the Loss of Rickie Weeks


The Milwaukee Brewers may have swept the border-rival Chicago Cubs, but it was an injury to second baseman Rickie Weeks on Wednesday night which has the entire city buzzing.

According to Brewers Assistant General Manager Gord Ash, Weeks has a “severe ankle sprain,” and could miss anywhere from three-to-six weeks.

Weeks injury is a huge loss for one of the league’s middling offenses. If Rickie is forced to miss up to six weeks, it could put the Brewers in a hole they won’t be able to dig their selves out of. [Read more…]

Prince Fielder Earns All-Star MVP Award while Leading the NL to Victory


Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder entered the record books on Tuesday night as he became the first Brewer to ever hit a home-run in an All-Star Game. He did so with a three-run bomb in the fourth inning off Texas Rangers C.J. Wilson.

For helping the National League become victorious in the All-Star Game for the second year in a row, Fielder was named the All-Star MVP, another first in Brewers history.

Fielder finished 1-for-2 with three RBI’s while lifting the National League to a 5-1 win in the MLB’s 82nd All-Star Game at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.

Fielder’s monster performance most likely has his agent Scott Boras salivating when he begins to think about the money his client could bring in during free agency next season. [Read more…]

Brewers Rickie Weeks Having an All-Star Type of Year


Investing in players hasn’t been one of the Milwaukee Brewers’ strong suits in the last decade or so. But to their credit, it seems the Brewers have learned from their mistakes and are making all the right decisions in 2011.

One of those right decisions was re-signing second baseman Rickie Weeks to a five-year, fifty million dollar contract.

Weeks is having a career year while leading all NL second baseman in at-bats (299), runs (51), hits (87), doubles (19), home-runs (14), on-base percentage (.359) and slugging percentage (.508).

With that said, why is he second to the Cincinnati Reds Brandon Phillips in All-Star votes?
