KEY GAME INFORMATION
MILWAUKEE: HITTING: It helped when the Brew Crew had Prince Fielder in the fold, but there's still lots of firepower here now that he's moved on. 2B RICKIE WEEKS starts it off, with some of the game's best bat speed. OF NYJER MORGAN doesn't hit the ball hard, but when it drops in he's off to the races. OF RYAN BRAUN has put up Hall of Fame numbers since day one. Now the big question is whether he doped to do it. OF COREY HART has improved his batting eye and is no longer an on-base liability. He's also one of the few Brewers hitters who plays even average defense. 3B ARAMIS RAMIREZ is on the down side of his career, but remains productive. Backup TAYLOR GREEN should see decent time behind him though. IF MAT GAMEL is slated to start at first; nobody knows if he'll be any good. He sure as heck won't be Prince Fielder. C JONATHAN LUCROY was effective in a middle-of-the-road kind of way. Fourth OF CARLOS GOMEZ still can't hit. SS ALEX GONZALEZ will play every day and has decent pop for a middle infielder.
STARTING PITCHING: The Brewers' front three is among the most formidable in baseball. YOVANI GALLARDO has improved his peripherals every year as a starter. High pitch counts used to chase him early in games, but not anymore. One day he'll win a Cy Young. ZACK GREINKE was a product of bad defense, bad luck, and an unusually high home run rate. In the second half, he was a beast. SHAUN MARCUM pulled a reverse Greinke, starting brilliantly then fading down the stretch. Not too surprising, given the durability issues that have followed Marcum throughout his career. Most teams would still kill to have him as their No. 3 starter. People laughed when the Crew signed RANDY WOLF for three years and $30 million, but he's been a highly dependable innings-eater in both seasons as a Brewer. The same holds for CHRIS NARVESON. He's the very definition of a back-end guy, but as fifth starters go, he's pretty good.
RELIEF PITCHING: JOHN AXFORD and his Long John Silver's facial hair are proof positive that you don't need to spend a fortune on a closer. Axford was an undrafted retread when Milwaukee signed him. The list of 'proven closers' with fat contracts that Axford has outpitched each of the past two years is a deep one. FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ ruined the Brewers' offseason plans by accepting arbitration. He's a decent bet for some cheap saves, and still brings it with that crazy body-flinging delivery. But the team may still deal him at some point this season. KAMERON LOE has made a reasonably smooth transition to full-time reliever.

CHICAGO CUBS: HITTING: 'Under New Management' is the motto in Wrigleyville, where Epstein, Hoyer, Sveum and Co. aim to turn SS STARLIN CASTRO and a bunch of straw into gold. OF DAVID DeJESUS was an underrated first pick-up. But OFs ALFONSO SORIANO and MARLON BYRD are overpaid and over the hill. C GEOVANY SOTO has lost his mojo. New 3B IAN STEWART has a lousy career OPS of .737 away from Coors Field. 1B BRYAN LaHAIR is tagged as part of a 'youth movement,' but he's almost 30. The other youths'2B DARWIN BARNEY, IF JEFF BAKER, and IF BLAKE DEWITT 'are interchangeable guys with low ceilings. Fourth OF TONY CAMPANA is fast but one-dimensional. And minor-league reinforcements are scarce. OF BRETT JACKSON is solid, but blocked in the lineup. And former uber-prospect 3B JOSH VITTERS has done nothing to justify his third-overall draft status. This rebuilding process will take time. Meanwhile, somewhere in the Chicago suburbs, Jim Hendry quietly sobs into a pile of Cubs-themed stuffed animals.
STARTING PITCHING: RYAN DEMPSTER should bounce back from an unlucky year in which there was nearly a full-run difference between his ERA and his FIP. He's no ace in good times, but he's an underrated and dependable source of innings and strikeouts. MATT GARZA didn't disappoint in his debut season on the North Side, but he was an odd acquisition to begin with: the Cubs dealt top prospects from a thin system when all signs pointed to a belly-flop of a season. He's already trade bait again. JEFF SAMARDZIJA is moving to the rotation after a strong year in the bullpen (2.97 ERA, 87 K in 88 IP), but he needs to cut down on his walks (5.1 per 9 IP). What killed TRAVIS WOOD in 2011 was uncharacteristic wildness. His walk total spiked by over 50 percent from 2010. He's better than this, though it's hard to say how much. It could be that a 40-inning jump from 2010 to 2011 aided his freefall. Subpar newcomers PAUL MAHOLM and CHRIS VOLSTAD will also compete for rotation spots. The lefty Maholm is coming off his best season in Pittsburgh (3.66 ERA, 1.29 WHIP), but was awful after the All-Star break (0-5, 5.75 ERA, .355 Opp. BA). The 6-foot-8 Volstad was 5-13 with a 4.89 ERA for the Marlins last year, but still has time to figure things out at age 25.
RELIEF PITCHING: Because of his contract and the head-scratching faith in the 'closer mentality' that still pervades even the most enlightened front offices, CARLOS MARMOL will enter the 2012 campaign with a near-ironclad grip on ninth-inning duties for the Cubs. Trading away Sean Marshall, arguably Chicago's best reliever last season, is yet another vote of confidence for Marmol. His lack of command leads to more hittable pitches (along with tons of walks), though his ceiling for strikeouts and saves is sky-high. KERRY WOOD will be the main set-up man again after a triumphant return to Chicago last season (3.35 ERA, 57 K in 51 IP).
