Uncustomed Heroes of 2018: Brewers
I knew the Brewers were going to be really good in 2018. But I had no idea how close they'd get to being in their first World Series in over 35 years.
This is a Brewers team that built from a farm system, slowly accumulated small contracts, got an MVP to sign there, and became a behemoth in the NL Central, even edging out the Cubs. I don't even think they're done, either. Next year might be even bigger if they keep it up.
Keon Broxton, a guy who didn't do too well in the regular season, came alive in October, and was responsible for several great moments from the Milwaukee offense.
Coming Tomorrow- Another NL Central squad, one that had a nice late-season push, but couldn't seal the deal in late September. Thankfully.
