The traditionally awful Brewers haven’t given baseball betting line fans much to cheer about in past two decades so even a sliver of hope can easily multiply into a conflagration of optimism. In 2007 baseball betting odds season this team will be improved.
Last baseball betting odds season injuries were the biggest enemy and they derailed a promising baseball betting odds season for the young team. Still the Brewers finished with a baseball betting line record of 78-87 and just eight and half games back of the division winning Cardinals. It may not sound like much to most baseball betting line fans, but for the long suffering Brewers’ fans that was a good as winning the division.
So, fans this baseball betting odds season are looking forward to even bigger things if the Brewers can stay healthy. The team’s fourth place finish wasn’t all that bad and it was filled with highlights. A number of promising young players emerged and in the off season team management cut the fat and brought in five free agents. All of these moves seem like steps in the right direction and was like pouring gasoline on the spark of baseball betting line fans’ hope.
This team will be pretty strong at most positions and its starting rotation will be much better than average. Last baseball betting odds year staff ace missed heaps of games, about half a baseball betting odds season worth of games, due to injuries and this really took its toll on the club. However, this baseball betting odds year he hopes to remain healthy and return to his form of old. If he is on his game, he is one of the better pitchers around. He is strike out artist and a power pitcher. This baseball betting odds year he should reach the 15 win mark or better and will be one of the real barometers of the team’s success.
After Sheets in the rotation, Chris Capuano will look to build on his stunning first half success last baseball betting odds year and avoid another big slide like he took after the all-start break last baseball betting odds season. Capuano still has a lot to prove and much will depend on his success. One half of a baseball betting odds season doesn’t guarantee success in the majors and there are many doubters regarding his ability to be a quality pitcher at this level.
Jeff Suppan was brought in during the off season to shore up the starting rotation and will be perfect and most likely reliable in this middle spot in the rotation. This is a guy who gets his thirty starts every baseball betting odds year and generally goes pretty deep into games. Francisco Cabrera is far from an all star but he was pretty solid last year in his save opportunities and should be alright for the Brewers in 2007 baseball betting odds season, although expecting a Cy Young season from him would be crazy.
Bill Hall is the new face of the Milwaukee Brewers and most people have probably never even heard of him. Hall had the quietest 35 homer baseball betting odds season in the history of pro baseball last season and batted .270 and drove in 85 runs. The centerfielder will have a lot of pressure to repeat that success in 2007 baseball betting odds season and the run production of this team will depend on it.
Prince Fielder the team’s first baseman also showed some pop in his bat by belting 28 homers and 82 RBIs. Fielder is a great player and seems ready to make the jump to having a really great breakout baseball betting odds year. The rest of the infield was decimated by injuries last baseball betting odds season and it will be a real test of their abilities to come back and perform at a very high level again.
There is no doubt that the Brewers are a team on the way up. There is plenty of reason for hope here, but there is also a need for realism. This team should flirt with a .500 baseball betting odds season and if everyone stays healthy they should finish with a slight winning baseball betting line record for the first time in a while. However, this team isn’t good enough to knock off the Cardinals or the Astros and there will be no division title or playoff spot this baseball betting odds year for Milwaukee.
