The 2014 season started out so promising for the Milwaukee Brewers, who are now mathmatically eliminated from the postseason. Somethings just were not working in the second half of the season and obviously a couple changes need to be made.
One major hole the Brewers have is at first base. The combination of Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay just didn’t work out for the Brew Crew this season. Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal wrote about the offensive numbers and how they have suffered at the position.
“Entering play Thursday, the Brewers had .648 OPS at first base, ranking 28th among the 30 major-league clubs. Milwaukee ranked 27th in slugging (.360) at first base, 29th in batting average (.208) and 29th in RBI (61).”
There are other in-house options for the Brewers as well as quite a few very good free agents who will be on the market at first base this offseason. So what should the Brewers do? Read my article on Call to the Pen for more information on the Brewers options at first base:
