For four months, the Brewers were one of 2012's bigger disappointments. They fell of the pace in the National League early in the season, they traded Zack Greinke, and they hit their season low of 12 games under .500 on August 19th. Then, like a light switch, the finished the season playing like their hair was on fire. From August 20th onwards, the Brewers went 29-13. That tied them for baseball's best record in that span with Oakland's improbable playoff run, putting them a half-game ahead of the newly crowned world champion Giants. They still came up five games short of a wild card spot, but it sure wasn't for lacking of trying. So where do the Brewers go now?

The Brewers’ infield is somewhat in flux going into the offseason, particularly at the shortstop position. While the team will likely have much the same crew of regulars around the bases (first base: probably Corey Hart, second base: Rickie Weeks, third: Aramis Ramirez), shortstop is a position that will have some intrigue around it until the Brewers decide...
Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun and third baseman Aramis Ramirez have been named finalists for the Rawlings Gold Glove in the National League at their respective positions.
The Gold Glove Award winners will be revealed Tuesday night on ESPN2s "Baseball Tonight" at 8:30 p.m.

Unlikely.Getting through baseball's long, unforgiving offseason is a difficult task. While each season draws to its conclusion, the days also get shorter and the temperatures dip.
At virtually the longest period of time spanning the Word Series and Opening Day, we're still more than a month from winter meetings and likely even longer from teams making any notable trades...

Just one day removed from the conclusion of the season, and the business side of baseball is already rearing its ugly head. While the San Francisco Giants are still riding high from their second title in three years, the rest of the league is immediately focusing on who they can bring in to improve their rosters. Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton...
With the World Series on the verge of beginning, that means we are mere days away from the free agency market opening for business and the Angels sure have themselves some business to get done if they want to end their playoff drought. To prep you for the ensuing craziness, we're previewing how the market could unfold for the Halos, position-by-position.
