The Milwaukee Brewers finished 89-73 last season. That was good enough for a Wild Card berth. They lost to the eventual World Series champs in the one-game playoff. They will look to get back to the playoffs this season but will have to do it without a few key players. Let’s take a look at what 2020 holds in store for the Brew Crew.
The Toronto Blue Jays entered the 2019 season with low expectations in a rebuilding year, so their 67-95 record was not surprising. The bright spot of the season was the development of promising young hitters like Bo Bichette, Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Cavan Biggio, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. The lackluster performance by the starting rotation was the main negative of this past year. Let’s delve further into Year Two of the rebuild for the Blue Jays.

Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.

He began the week by doing something he already did this season: beat up the Cardinals.
