Lots of questions ahead for Crew
I wrote a story earlier today about the slew of questions facing the Brewers this offseason, from free agents to arbitration-eligibles to players under control with uncertain positions. As much as was made about the Brewers losing CC Sabathia and Ben Sheets last season, you can argue that the questions facing general manager Doug Melvin this winter are even tougher.
So, I laid some of them out and found it helpful to rebuild the current roster in terms of players’ contractual status. Take a look and then tell me which areas Melvin should make his focus.
You can link to the story here, and for reference here’s the roster breakdown:
Brewers active roster and DL as of 9/10
|Braden Looper (mutual)|
|David Weathers (club)|
|Mike Rivera (first time)|
|Carlos Villanueva (first time)|
|Ryan Braun (through 2015)|
|Prince Fielder (through 2010, plus ’11 arbitration)|
|David Riske (through 2010)|
|Jeff Suppan (through 2010)|
