Something is brewing in Milwaukee. The Brewers made a big statement by swinging away on a trade with the floundering Miami Marlins to obtain outfielder Christian Yelich, and then signing centerfielder Lorenzo Cain to a five-year, $80 million contract. The pair joins a strong nucleus of players to field a potential playoff team. “By (adding the two potential All-Stars), the Brewers didn’t just add two dynamic pieces to their lineup and outfield; they also announced that they’re serious about making a run at the Cubs and Cardinals in the NL Central,” writes Sports Illustrated.
