With the way the Milwaukee Brewers have operated this offseason, one has to wonder exactly what it means for this team going forward. While they may be done making moves, you can never be sure with a little under two months until the regular season begins.

The question for this week was, “Are you content with what the Brewers have done so far this off-season?”

Ryan Connor:

“Yeah, they actually did more in terms of talent additions than I expected. They added a legit starting pitcher, got a playable first baseman for nothing, and didn’t sign Kendrys Morales.

David Grant:

“Prior to the Matt Garza signing I would say no, but now I’m not sure. The Brewers are gambling with their “throw everything at first base and see what happens” plan and late inning bullpen depth leads a lot to be desired. There are still holes! At the very least, the Garza deal reduced my rage toward the Brewers lack of movement this offseason.”

Justin Schultz:

“I’m fine with it. Getting Garza was icing on a cake that didn’t exist before they acquired him. They still need a reliever with closing experience (Carlos Marmol?) but they’ve addressed the first base situation. And when I say they addressed it, that doesn’t mean I agree with how they went about it. But at least they made moves that weren’t pricey.”

Benjamin Orr:

“I’m not sure the Brewers had many expectations heading into the offseason, so I personally am fine with what they did. Garza is going to make a huge impact for the rotation and the sweetest thing about signing him was unlike Kyle Lohse, he didn’t cost a draft pick. First base is as good as it’s going to get, though still having Corey Hart would have been nice. Everywhere else is filled besides one more bullpen piece, but for a small market team, you can’t expect them to spend a lot of money.”
