Found February 06, 2012 on Babes Love Baseball:

It's about time to kick off one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Five years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Moving right along with our preview of the National League Central, here is a look at the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers.

We hope Ryan Braun
Didn't cheat or have herpes
Either would be gross

Bu-bye Prince Fielder
Mat Gamel will play first now
He's not as chubby

Oh Nyjer Morgan
You are so entertaining
An easy target

Zack Greinke is good
Yovanni Gallarado and
Racing sausages

John Axfrod's mustache
K-Rod needs no facial hair
Maybe it won't grow

LuCroy at backstop
George Kottaras backs him up
Weeks at second base

Alex Gonazalez
Is Weeks' double play partner
Ramirez at third

First division win
Since back in '82 guys
Man those were the days

Can the Brewers make
A run at the postseason
Again? We say yes.

For the top 20, I’ve listed them...

Player Profile #72: Aramis Ramirez | 3B | MIL

Milwaukee, meet Aramis Ramirez, or, as many will come to know him, not Prince Fielder. Ramirez is a nice player, a very good player even. He’s a .300 hitter (when healthy), still has enough pop to hit 30 homers (when healthy) and, if guys do their job and get on base in front of him, he can still drive in 100 runs (when healthy). There’s one problem with Ramirez, though. Sometimes...

Yovani Gallardo Player Projection No. 67

Key Stats: Yovani Gallardo went from good to great last season. He always had the ability to strikeout one hitter per inning, but last season he demonstrated better control than ever before by posting a career best 2.6 BB/9.
