Milwaukee Brewers — Predicted Finish: Third Place, AL Central
The Brewers are always one of my favorite teams to root for, maybe it is because I am marrying a Wisconsinite, or maybe it is because cheese curds are one of my favorite snacks, or maybe it is the simple fact that I typically field 2-3 Brewers on each of my fantasy teams, which is a distinct possibility for 2013.
Even though Big Prince Fielder is not longer around, the Brewers still have PLENTY of fantasy options. The Brewers aren’t as star-studded as say the Los Angeles Dodgers, or even top to bottom as solid as the Washington Nationals but they certainly provide plenty of value.

The Milwaukee Brewers have signed free-agent shortstop Alex Gonzalez to a one-year major league deal, according to a source.
Gonzalez will make $1.5 million and will have the opportunity to earn nearly $1 million more in performance bonuses.
Gonzalez played just 24 games for the Brewers last season. In 2011 he hit .241 with 15 home runs and 56 RBI in 149 games for the Atlanta Braves...
MILWAUKEE -- Mark Attanasio learned a valuable lesson last season: Spending more money doesn't always result in more wins.
The Brewers owner stretched his wallet thin last season with payroll at 98.2 million, and the team failed to make the playoffs. This season, Attanasio is quite alright with payroll dropping to somewhere in the 80 million range because it provides him and...
MILWAUKEE -- For most of his career, Yovani Gallardo has been overshadowed at the top of the Milwaukee Brewers rotation.
From Ben Sheets to C.C. Sabathia and then Zack Greinke, Milwaukee has had three bona fide aces for the majority of Gallardo's six years in the big leagues.
With Greinke and the other established veterans gone from the Brewers rotation, Gallardo is now the...
Yovani Gallardo is expected to be the ace of the Milwaukee Brewers' rotation.
After that, the team faces some question marks.
Manager Ron Roenicke expects right-hander Marco Estrada to fill a spot. If Chris Narveson is recovered from shoulder surgery that limited him to just two starts a year ago, he'll be back in the rotation.
Gallardo made 33 starts in 2012, posting...
After a ridiculously long hiatus of over 15 years, Soundgarden is back once again to play an epic show Friday at Milwaukee’s Eagles Club. The band released their first proper record since 1996’s Down On The Upside in 2012, titled King Animal. Soundgarden had called it quits around the time the ‘grunge’ era was in its autumn days. While fans were disappointed...
Perhaps, through his pen, Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford passed down some of his athletic abilities to this not-yet-born baby.Axford signed Kristin Corcoran’s belly and then she posted the picture to twitter with the caption, “Thanks for the autographs & for reassuring that signing my belly wasn’t the strangest request you’ve had!”
We've reached that point in the offseason where there's not much to write about. Well, the Brewers offseason moves up to this point (or lack thereof) haven't given us much fodder either, and it's not like we capitalized on writing something the few times a post was warranted... like that clutch Kelvim Escobar inking. But this post-Winter Meetings, pre-Spring Training...
It’s that time again! Two weeks until pitchers and catchers report!!! Puts a smile on my face. The best part is that there is no hype. No expectations with this team. No pressure. Just the way I like it. Now, relax and enjoy the LosersBracket official positive Brewers Preview post, no doubt to be followed by frantic ranting throughout the season.
2013 could be special!

Adding depth and veteran insurance at a valuable position, the Milwaukee Brewers and shortstop Alex Gonzalez have agreed on a one-year deal, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
The contract is reportedly worth 1.5 million with performance bonuses of nearly 1 million. Milwaukee's Opening Day starter at shortstop last season, Gonzalez played in 24 games for the Brewers...
