The pitching pick-ups the Brewers passed on

The Brewers roster, and in particular, it’s pitching staff was decimated this year by injuries and ineffectiveness. 


True Brewers fans perhaps wouldn’t be as disappointed — and haters seem as prescient — if a crystal ball could have foretold the travails of Weeks, Suppan, Bush, Parra, McClung, Hardy, Hart and Hall. 


But around midseason, when it was apparent the Brew Crew was motley, there were some former big-name pitchers available for little. The acquisition of one of these players could have slowed the team’s slide to the middle, or at least shown fans management was still desperate to win now. 


These are the types of players you pass on when you’re not in contention.
