Bold Prediction #5
The Milwaukee Brewers are World Series champions
You can call this a bold prediction, or you can say it isn’t bold at all based on how the team is constructed and what we witnessed last year. But believe it or not, it’s a bold prediction.
Winning a World Series is extremely difficult, and we know the Milwaukee Brewers have never won one. It’s difficult enough to make the World Series as we learned last season. It takes a lot of things to go right over a 162 game season to even make the playoffs. No matter how well your roster is set up for October, players are still human and bats can go cold and pitchers can get tired.
Despite all the possibilities for things to go wrong, the Milwaukee Brewers and their below-league average payroll will end up on top at the end of the day and will win the World Series. We’ll have a parade in Milwaukee this year.

Repeating as World Series champions is extremely difficult, and the Boston Red Sox have lost their closer Craig Kimbrel. Their bullpen can’t match the stuff the Brewers bullpen has. The lineups are both dominant and the rotations have great potential.
The National League is extremely deep this year. Three teams are pushing to win the NL West, four teams in the NL East are pushing to win that division, and all five teams in the NL Central are going to be competitive and are pushing for the title. If the Brewers can get out of the mess that is the National League, they can defeat whichever team the AL puts up.
The Milwaukee Brewers have the lineup to outscore anyone. The Brewers have the bullpen to shut down anyone when they have the lead. The Brewers have the depth in the starting rotation and possible studs in Corbin Burnes and Jimmy Nelson to lead them. This is a complete team.
While the Brewers may not get the national respect and attention as World Series contenders, that’s because they look down on the Brewers because of their small payroll and lack of established starters in their rotation. You don’t need a $200 million payroll to field a World Series team. David Stearns has proven that you can win with half the payroll of the big market clubs.
What separates this Milwaukee Brewers team from the pack is their culture. The clubhouse culture this team has is so strong and so family oriented that it improves their play on the field. Having the right attitude and a winning culture is so important. Now that most of these players have postseason experience, the stage won’t seem as bright as it might have last year.
This group is a year older and a year wiser. The young pitchers will take more steps forward, the hitters will take more steps forward. After the NLCS, the only forward step is the World Series. And in 2019, the Milwaukee Brewers will win it all.
If the first four bold predictions come true, then there’s a very strong chance that the final bold prediction will come true as well.
