What Should The Next Moves Be For The Brewers

No that the season is over the Milwaukee Brewers have some thinking to do. Prince Fielder is a free agent and a number guys on the team are as well. Milwaukee did decline the option on Francisco Rodriguez, so he is free to go. Milwaukee was never going to keep him anyways, so it was not a big loss. Yuniesky Betancourt was another player that the Brewers are releasing and will be getting a buyout like Rodriguez. I do not look for Betancourt to be back at all.

Milwaukee needs to make a decision Fielder soon as they must either move forward or try to make some kind of good offer towards him. I love Fielder, but as I have written before letting him go is the Brewers best option. Milwaukee needs a good everyday shortstop and the money we spend on Fielder can help the Brewers in many other ways. Fielder will be missed, but sometimes you just have to move on.

Getting more starting pitching is something the Brewers need to look into as well. Third base is another question mark for Milwaukee. Will they give Casey McGehee another chance, or will they groom someone else for that position. As you can see the Milwaukee Brewers have many questions they must get answers to and real soon.
