MLB Previews: Milwaukee Brewers Expectations For 2013
Anytime the face of your franchise is rumored to have bought substances from an illegal drug peddler in Miami, it can’t be a good offseason. For the Milwaukee Brewers it was another offseason marred by questions on whether or not Ryan Braun took performance enhancing drugs.
The good news is that Braun isn’t going to be suspended by MLB and hasn’t been found guilty of taking PED’s. Milwaukee’s manager Ron Roenicke said “he’s able to handle a lot of different situations really well”, I think Braun will be a distraction to the entire team. Braun dealt with the same issues last year and turned in a great season with 41 home runs which led the National League.
Surely, Braun has shown he can play through controversy but I have my doubts that the organization can follow suit.
Mat Gamel was gearing up to play a big role for the Brewers in 2012 after he tore his ACL in May of 2012. In a awful turn of events Gamel tore that same ACL less than a year later on February 18th of 2013. Gamel was set to start at firstbase and finally be the heir-apparent to Prince Fielder who left for the Detroit Tigers prior to the 2012 season.
The Cincinnati Reds are going to dominate the NL Central this year, however I think the Brewers will fall far behind even the Chicago Cubs given the circumstances. Roenicke has an extremely thin team in 2013 and I don’t think the Brewers will be formidable in the least this season winning just 73 games.
