Injuries will probably play a big part in this shortened season and the Brewers are in a great place if this happens as well. Many of the players that the Brewers have signed can play multiple positions which is very important. Over the years injuries can derail a season, but the Brewers should be okay in that department which could mean the difference between the playoffs and staying home.
Pitching is another part of the game which will be very important as well. The Brewers pitching staff struggled at times last season. The added some new faces to the staff and they are hoping they will have career years for the Brewers.
In the end, I see the Brewers winning around 35 games and earning a wild card spot. This shortened season will be different, so anyone could win it. The Brewers have a good chance as anyone, but it will come down the team who gets hot. You cannot start out slow as there are only 60 games. This means every game is important and you must treat it that way. No matter what happens this will be different for baseball fans.
