Milwaukee Brewers Betting – Brewers Move Forward Without Fielder In 2012

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 4/4/2012 6:26:16 PM

After years of building a sports betting contender capable of representing the National League in the World Series, the Milwaukee Brewers finally loaded up and took their shot in 2011, and while they fell just short, there was a lot of things that they accomplished that could be built on heading in to 2012. However, the tumultuous offseason that followed has jarred any hopes of the Brewers taking another step forward, with Prince Fielder finally moving on to another team by joining the Detroit Tigers in free agency, and reigning MVP Ryan Braun dealing with his own issues after being suspended for using Performance Enhancing Drugs, only to appeal and have his 50-game suspension lifted. The result is a Milwaukee fan base that has to be frustrated with all that it has had to deal with over the years as the team figures to take a step back this season, but there are some things that the Brewers can build on moving forward.

The fact that Braun’s suspension was lifted is a major break for a Milwaukee team that hasn’t had much of them, and they will need their MVP to bring his best stuff with Fielder no longer there to provide protection. That spot will be filled by Alexei Ramirez, who was brought in from the Chicago Cubs to help fill the void left by Fielder, even if he is not on the same level. The Brewers are hoping that some added depth and potential improvement from within will help make up some of what they lost when Fielder since with Detroit, but a lot of that will depend on Ramirez, Corey Hart, and Nyjer Morgan.

As for the starting rotation, Milwaukee will look to Yovani Gallardo to lead the team for the entire sports bet season, with Zach Grienke and Shaun Marcum rounding out a solid top-three, even before mentioning Randy Wolf in the No. 4 slot. Gallardo will be the ace of the staff after going 17-10 with a solid 3.25 ERA a year ago, and while the Brewers can expect him to bring his best stuff once again, they will be very dependent on all four of the names mentioned above in their starting rotation.

Over the past five seasons, the Brewers have never finished lower than third in the NL Central, including two trips to the postseason. An improved field of sportsbook contenders in the NL will make it difficult for Milwaukee to make another playoff trip this year, especially considering how everything went so well for the club in 2011, and the rough start to 2012 that it has experienced. The Brewers have a ton of young talent both in the order and the rotation to remain in contention for an NL Central throughout the first couple of months, but unless the St. Louis Cardinals suffer a World Series hangover and slip at the top of the list, Milwaukee will have to go through another rebuilding year in hopes of contending once again in 2013.
