I really dont get the Bims /Yost comparison. Sure we kicked the crap out the Brewers in every facet of the game during that series and it made it look like we were alot better. Bims has said all along that our pitching is better and I think that was the biggest key to the series. Pitchers do not go out every night with their best stuff. I think in this series Both Sabathia and Sheets were nowhere near their best. Parra was pretty good and actually I thought Bush looked great if you take away Edmonds. Now for our staff- Lilly- had better than average stuff / both Z and Demps had some of their best stuff/ Harden had B stuff today.
Offensively- The Brewers have holes in their order, where we dont. But those holes- Hall, Cameron, and Weeks crush average pitchers meaning 3,4,5 starters. With that being said they also have 2 outstanding offensive players in Braun and Fielder. Braun - you can tell by his numbers/ Fielder- you should be able to tell by the way we pitched him this series. I really dont think anyone wanted any part of him unless we had a huge lead.
Defensively- I dont see where you can just come out and say we are better defensively. A teams best defense is its P and ours dominated this series. As far as positions go though, they played 3 different 3Bs and Fielder looks very immobile at 1b. I think they are better at SS and in CF, with everything else being a wash. I would probably go with Kendall over Soto defensively because of his experience.
