What Went Right for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2021

To paraphrase David Stearns, the Brewers experienced a wildly disappointing end to a wildly successful 2021 season.

This is the first of two posts that revisits the Brewers' 2021. The forthcoming second post will look at what went wrong for the Crew. This one explores what went right.

Starting Rotation

After all of their success in 2021, it’s strange to recall that while Brewers starters projected favorably at the beginning of the season, they still had a lot to prove.

This is even true of the Brewers’ Big Three. While Brandon Woodruff started the season a full-fledged ace, Corbin Burnes was one shortened and 180-degree breakout season removed from an abysmal 2019.
