Even Eric Lauer can be considered something of a...

Right-hander Josh Lindblom to start or relieve?

The infield picture for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2020

Those following the Milwaukee Brewers at a distance may not have paid much attention to their tempered approach to the offseason. It’s easy to look at their winter and see a modest collection of stopgaps to stanch the roster bleed of departing veterans such as catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Mike Moustakas.  Look a littler closer, however, and you’ll find general manager David Stearns created a two-year window of flexible and affordable contracts to keep manager Craig...
