It is almost universally accepted that the Brewers collapse at the end of the season left a sour taste and had Brewers' fans wanting answers. Yesterday Brewers President of Baseball Operations, David Stearns, held his end of the season presser to answer those questions. The biggest question needing to be addressed was the Josh Hader trade which in many fan's opinion was the turning point of the season that led to their downfall. Stearn's took responsibility for the trade speaking to the fact that it had a bigger impact on the team than he thought it would and that what they got in return for Hader made the trade a mistake. While it did help to hear the President of the team admit to the mistake, it still didn't change that a promising season ended terribly.
Also in his presser he mentioned that the Brewers are expecting attendance to drop next season. This was an interesting point that was one of many discussed on today's Steve Czaban Show. Tim Allen, long time host of the Brewers post game show which recently started on 97.3 The Game in Milwaukee, joined Czabe and Josh to discuss the presser and the outlook of the team going forward.
