According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Brewers are targeting Jamie Moyer, Randy Johnson, Randy Wolf, and John Smoltz as potential replacements in their rotation. All four pitchers are question marks, suggesting that the Brewers may be struggling to close a deal with Ben Sheets. Still, there are several good pitchers who should come cheap in a couple weeks. Guys like Jon Garland or Oliver Perez, both of whom have double digit wins under their belts.
The Brewers expressed a willingness to spend big this offseason and should be able to spend some of that money on guys to keep them in contention.
