The Milwaukee Brewers have seen quite a bit of talent come up through their minor league system. Recently the Brewers have concentrated on adding impact bats during the draft and this has allowed them to trade for impact pitching. The numbers for their starting pitching haven’t boded well for them as of late. In 2009 they finished with the second-worst starters ERA (5.37) in the majors and a record of 80-82. They do have a strong group of talent that has allowed them to stay competitive in recent years. They have finished over .500 in 3 out of the last 5 seasons with one playoff appearance in 2008 losing 3 games to 1 against the Phillies who went on to win the world series.
