Milwaukee Brewers: DOs and DON'Ts

  • DO draft OF Ryan Braun as early as you can. Depending on how many AROD haters are in your league, Ryan could go as early as 3rd. He has the potential to go 40/20!
  • DON'T over-pay for 2B Richie Weeks' potential. According to, his 162 game projections are 20 HRs and 27 SBs. The problem with that is that he's never played more than 129 games in a season.
  • DO enjoy all the fruits of SP Yovani Gallardo's labor (15+ Wins, sub 3.50 ERA, sub 1.30 WHIP and a robust 9.90 K/9).
  • DON'T focus on these 1B Prince Fielder numbers: 270ish (his weight) and 138 (K's). Try these on for size: 162 (games), 103 (runs), 46 (HRs), 141 (RBI), 110 (BB) and 1.014 (OPS).
  • DO yourself a favor and draft CL Trevor Hoffman. At 42, he posted some sick numbers (1.83 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, 37 Saves).
  • DON'T expect 20/20 from OF Corey Hart. Project him for 15/15 and be happy when he produces 25/25. I'm a fan and I'm buying!
  • DO take a chance on rookie SS Alcides Escobar. It's his job to lose. A full season on the field could produce a .300 BA and 25+ SBs.
Players I'd be willing to use a late-round pick on:
  • SP Randy Wolf (24 of 34 QS, 7.4 K/9 career rate)
  • OF Carlos Gomez (20+ SB potential is good, sub .250 BA is bad)
  • 3B Casey McGehee (20 HR/.300 BA potential at a very thin position)
  • RP LaTroy Hawkins (Primary setup man for Holds, potential closer if Hoffman gets injured)
