I love it when the old timers show up at spring training. Decked out in jerseys that don’t fit and pants that would be better off… well, off (and hopefully replaced by something baggy), seeing them throwing BP and shagging flies always gets me to smile.

Today’s preview looks at the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers look to defend their title as the reigning NL Central champions, but may be hard-pressed to do so after dealing with a stressful off-season for the organization.
