We might feel like we know what to expect from Willy Adames.
Since his arrival in Milwaukee, much has been said and written about the Crew’s next #27.
We know Adames is a plus defender and powerful at the bat, at least for a defensively sound shortstop. We know he bolsters the clubhouse with his presence and endears fans with his energy, charisma, and connection with former Brewer Carlos Gómez. We know the Milwaukee Brewers have been trying to develop or deal for a shortstop of Adames’ caliber for a decade, and he’s here.
He’s also backed up the hype early on.
