You wouldn’t know it form the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2015 regular season record of 68-94, but the future really does look bright. Yes, I too was a doubter. In fact, I wrote a piece at this past season’s trade deadline pointing out that things could be better in the system after calling the season over with and trading away productive veteran players. But the Brewers proved me wrong over the remaining month of the season and now, things are looking up more now than in the past few years combined.
So many changes in the club have brought us to this point: The firing of manager Ron Roenicke on May 4, promoting general manager special assistant Craig Counsell to manager, and general manager Doug Melvin stepping aside for an advisory role leading to the hiring of new general manager David Stearns.
A number of veterans were also traded away such as Aramis Ramirez, Mike Fiers, Gerardo Parra, and Carlos Gomez. In retrospect however, this led to the acquisition of so much young talent that these vets won’t be missed for long. Now a look at the best of what the Brewers’ youth has to offer.
