The Milwaukee Brewers are a bad team in a great division. They have the misfortune of playing against the Cardinals, Cubs, and Pirates 57 times a year, and the Brewers went a combined 21-36 against them last season. Those three teams were the best in baseball and combined for 295 wins a season ago.

Outfielder Khris Davis and former MVP Ryan Braun are their only real standouts on offense. Mike Fiers and Carlos Gomez were sent to the Astros in exchange for prospects. Gerardo Parra led the team in batting average before being traded to the Baltimore Orioles at the July trade deadline and trusty first baseman Adam Lind was recently dealt to the Seattle Mariners. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy posted disappointing numbers in 2015, just a year removed from finishing fourth in National League MVP voting.

Solution: move the Brewers to a new division. Get them away from the Cardinals, Cubs, and Pirates. Maybe send them to the NL East, where they can play against the Braves, Marlins, and Phillies 57 times a year. That would certainly help boost their record a bit.

Regardless, a winning record for this rebuilding Brewers team would be nothing short of a Christmas miracle.

Stocking stuffers: a first baseman, a new closer, and a new chew toy for their beloved Hank.
