Prospectus Hit and Run: Rotation Rumble in the NL

7

Jay Jaffe

With an upgraded rotation, how do the new-look Brewers stack up against the senior circuit's heavyweights?

With Adam Wainwright already lost for the year due to Tommy John surgery, the NL Central race rates as the league's most wide-open according to our new Playoff Odds, and that's without accounting for Chris Carpenter pulling up lame with a hamstring strain as he did yesterday. Four teams have at least a 10 percent shot of winning the division, and the percentage point gap between the first-place Cardinals and fourth-place Cubs is roughly the size of those between the top two clubs in each of the Senior Circuit's other two divisions. Gaining the most from this turn of events, at least in terms of proximity to the top spot, are the Brewers, whose winter efforts to double down for one last run before Prince Fielder's inevitable departure are suddenly coming into sharper focus.

Warning Track Power: Marcum Up

6

Chase Gharrity

The acquisition of Shaun Marcum should serve as a major upgrade for the Brewers' rotation.

Earlier this week, the Milwaukee Brewers made one of the first major splashes of the Winter Meetings by landing the Blue Jays’ Shaun Marcum for Canadian prospect Brett Lawrie. While losing their top prospect could cause a post-trade hangover in the long run, there is little doubt that the Brewers rotation is getting a swell upgrade for the near-term. The entire Brewers rotation is poised to make major strides in overall performance next year. Today, I will examine the legitimacy of Marcum's 2010 performance, how his pitching can help the Milwaukee rotation, and what Wisconsinites can expect from the Brew Crew’s 2011 rotation.

In an act of inevitable consummation, dealing A-Gonz to Beantown doesn't equal garbanzo beans in San Diego, does it? Plus the Brewers add an arm.

Under The Knife: Post-Opening Day Hurts

14

Will Carroll

The latest timetable for Cliff Lee's return and other injury news from around the major leagues.

There's not much in this world that can brighten things in life the way that Opening Day can. I still think it should be a national holiday—who celebrates Columbus Day, anyway?—especially when Butler playing in the national championship game, making for a once-in-a-lifetime doubleheader. Joel Henard and I headed down to Cincinnati on Monday for the traditional Opening Day experience. While we missed the Findlay Market Parade, we saw pretty much everything else. Standing on the field and watching Joey Votto and Albert Pujols take batting practice is still something that amazes and excites me.
