This point is patently ridiculous. If young players improved throughout the season regardless of the circumstance, then the Devil Rays and Marlins, two teams chalk-full of more young talented players than the Brewers, would consistently have been the best team not only this season but also for the past five years. This is clearly not the case.


You really expect to be taken seriously with this shit?

There is no team in baseball right now with more young talented players than the Brewers.

None. Zippo.

As for your other dubious 'point' - not all young players will improve regardless of the circumstances, no. The key is to surround them with enough veterans - and to have a deep enough roster - that if any one player starts tailing off it doesn't affect the team's ability to compete.

Which is exactly the situation that the Brewers are in - they've got Sheets, Jenkins, Cordero, Suppan, Counsell and Graffanino to balance out all the young studdishness.

But whatever - since you're a Cubs fan, we already know that you're fundamentally deficient in judgement.

In fact, your list of players comprise the 2003 series team, and not the veteran heavy team from 1997.


All the bolded players were on the 97 Marlins team...

...and only one is a pitcher.

This will be the last Marlins-related comment I make in this thread, as it is supposed to be about the Brewers and how good they are this year.
