The Brewers entered the offseason with three glaring holes on offense: Shortstop, second base and catcher. They'll live with Orlando Arcia at short because of his glove, but the reported one-year, $18.25 million deal with Yasmani Grandal will give them a huge boost at catcher and could prove to be one of the best signings of the offseason. If they want to upgrade second base, Jed Lowrie and DJ LeMahieu are still on the market. In a competitive NL Central, the Brewers should go all-in and sign one of those two as well (especially if they don't add one more starting pitcher).
